would abolish second amendment
Rabbi calls for ban on all private weapons
BERKELEY, Calif. — Seizing on the tragedy of the mass shooting Friday at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn., a left-wing California rabbi is calling for a ban on all guns “of any sort.”
Writing in the Huffington Post, Rabbi Michael Lerner of the Beyt Tikkun Synagogue in Berkeley proposed a constitutional amendment that would nullify the Second Amendment and outlaw all privately owned weapons in the United States.
As a sop to sportsmen, he suggested creating “special holding
units for hunting rifles” to be held by
local officials “under lock and key,” except during hunting season. Failure to abide by the controls or return weapons in a prescribed manner would subject violators to criminal penalties.
The rabbi went on: ““Police must similarly be disarmed and allowed only to use billy clubs and mace, except in emergencies in which a judge signs a warrant for the temporary use of lethal force against someone who is using lethal force.”
