BREAKING NEWS: Apparently, Chris Cuomo Can't Read
By: Amber Athey
In case you missed it, the op-ed was titled, "John Paul Stevens: Repeal The Second Amendment."By: Amber Athey
Still, in an interview with former Senator Rick Santorum, Cuomo challenged the idea that anyone on the left wants to repeal the Second Amendment. (RELATED: NYT Has To Correct Gun Photo In Anti-2A Opinion Piece)
"You've got the President of the United States tweeting that the Second Amendment will never be repealed," Cuomo said. "Who is calling for a repeal of the Second Amendment? Who is calling for it?"
"Justice Stevens did," Santorum shot back.
"He did not, it was in the context of a conversation about the fastest route to legal change - of course, if you didn't have the Second Amendment... it would be easier to change the laws," Cuomo said, doubling down. "That does not breed unity, it's a bogeyman and you know it."
he is a retired justice who was talking about ways to get quick legal change on access to weapons. he is not an elected official or part of any effort to repeal 2A. it is a bogeyman to keep people scared and as such resistant to ways to stop the shootings. https://t.co/GpHXVwjcjf — Christopher C.

Stevens wrote in the Tuesday op-ed, "Concern that a national standing army might pose a threat to the security of the separate states... is a relic of the 18th century."
