In an op-ed in The New York Times, former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens said that demonstrators who marched against gun violence this past weekend should demand a repeal of the Second Amendment.

Heller decision, which he dissented from in 2008, as providing the National Rifle Association with “a propaganda weapon of immense power.”
