Ditch Second Amendment

President Obama said the five Dallas police officers “did not die in vain.” Then, there were three more killed in Baton Rouge.

Just exactly what greater good is the president expecting from their pointless deaths?

How about the tens of thousands of other gunshot killings, including thousands of innocent children?

The only possible good from all these sacrifices is that it brings this country, and its leaders, to their collective senses and they chuck the Second Amendment into the dustbin of history, where it should have gone 100 years ago.
