When former U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice John Paul Stevens called for repeal of the Second Amendment in a New York Times op-ed last week, Democratic Party officials largely laid low.
But the vice chairman for civic engagement and voter protection for the Democratic National Committee issued a tweet urging “Repeal the Second Amendment,” with a link to Stevens’ op-ed:

The Louisiana state senator’s tweet got only about 50 likes and a little more than 79 retweets, but she was flooded with responses from defenders of the Second Amendment.
The reactions included:
This is what @TheDemocrats want. Anything else they claim is a lie. Please keep talking. Please Democrats…Please run on repealing #2A.
