FL: Repeal the Second Amendment? Point-counterpoint

Did anyone ever imagine that a retired justice of the U.S. Supreme Court would one day advocate for the repeal of one of the 10 provisions in the Bill of Rights to the U.S. Constitution?
Yet in the wake of shootings and deaths at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in February, it has come to that: After students and others protested throughout the nation to demand restrictions on firearms, retired Justice John Paul Stevens wrote that protesters should go further and seek to repeal the Second Amendment, which protects the right to bear arms.
|Point/Counterpoint, Whorelando Sentinel version:
A gun grabber from the ACLU squares off against a gun grabber from the Catholic Church on whether we need to repeal the 2nd Amendment or if it's OK to just keep violating it without bothering to repeal it.
The ACLU's Howard Simon says, basically, that the 2A is subject to 'reasonable restrictions', while implying that there's no such thing as an 'unreasonable restriction'. Therefore, why try to repeal something that doesn't impede socialist goals in the first place, and can't be repealed at the present time anyway? Yep, that's the Sentinel's choice for the 'pro gun' side of the 'debate'.
