Categories 2nd Amendment Conflict Resolution Professor Calls for the Death of “Stupid” Second Amendment
[Editor's note: This article originally appeared in Late December of 2014... But let's face it: This professor merits second mention.]

Did you know that the Second Amendment is a “stupid” amendment? Did you know that the individual right to keep and bear arms does not exist outside of the US Constitution, but was granted by an incredibly biased court decision in 2008? Well… Neither did I. But I guess we learn something new every day. And today we can thank Tom Hastings, writing in the Wisconsin Gazette, for enlightening us on the idiocy of those gun-happy morons who crafted our founding document and the first ten amendments to the US Constitution.

The “PeaceVoice Director” and teacher of Conflict Resolution at Portland State University (I assume he also has a minor in underwater basket weaving) crafted a thinly veiled temper-tantrum against the Second Amendment. In his op-ed, Tom manages to make Piers Morgan and Michael Bloomberg look like the poster-boys for rational discussion. (By comparison, of course.) With an ideological blindness generally reserved for Bolshevik Party members, Tom did his best to tear apart the American concept of individuality and self-defense.
