Rolling Stone used to be a music magazine, but like many of our formerly great institutions, it has been ruined by progressives who have turned it into a vehicle for far left politics.
In this case, Rolling Stone found a left wing professor who was willing to write a column calling for the repeal of the Second Amendment.

Why It’s Time to Repeal the Second Amendment
I teach the Constitution for a living. I revere the document when it is used to further social justice and make our country a more inclusive one. I admire the Founders for establishing a representative democracy that has survived for over two centuries.
But sometimes we just have to acknowledge that the Founders and the Constitution are wrong. This is one of those times. We need to say loud and clear: The Second Amendment must be repealed.
As much as we have a culture of reverence for the founding generation, it’s important to understand that they got it wrong — and got it wrong often. Unfortunately, in many instances, they enshrined those faults in the Constitution. For instance, most people don’t know it now, but under the original document, Mitt Romney would be serving as President Obama’s vice president right now because he was the runner-up in the last presidential election. That part of the Constitution was fixed by the Twelfth Amendment, which set up the system we currently have of the president and vice president running for office together…
In the face of yet another mass shooting, now is the time to acknowledge a profound but obvious truth – the Second Amendment is wrong for this country and needs to be jettisoned. We can do that through a Constitutional amendment. It’s been done before (when the Twenty-First Amendment repealed prohibition in the Eighteenth), and it must be done now.
You see, there was a horrible attack by a criminal with a gun. Therefore, according to the left, we have to take guns away from all the law abiding people who didn’t do it.
If that makes sense to you, you might be a progressive.
