Well, actually…

…yes. Yes, Professor Mary Margaret Penrose is anti-gun:

Much to her surprise, a Texas law professor’s statement that it’s time to consider replacing the Second Amendment has unleashed a storm of controversy….

Penrose, whose areas of concentration include constitutional law, said she supports a states’-rights approach to the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

States, not the federal government, should be able to decide who has guns and how those weapons should be used, she said.

“Not one place did I suggest there should be a gun ban,” Penrose said Monday by phone.

Really? Then why even bring up the issue at all, especially in light of the incorporation of the Second Amendment to apply to the states as well as the federal government? After all, gun bans were the catalysts for both D.C. v. Heller and McDonald v. Chicago. In that light, if you’re going to say that the Second Amendment should be revised in favor of a “states’ rights” approach, that’s pretty much a de facto admission that you’re in favor of a gun ban at least on some level. It’s not that hard to figure out.

    I have come to believe anti-rights cultists like her are either so egotistical or so delusional that they can not imagine anyone disagreeing with them.

    They keep asking for debate, for a national conversation and they are shocked, I tell you shocked to find out someone has a different opinion.

    States, not the federal government, should be able to decide who has guns and how those weapons should be used, she said.

    Funny how few of them believe states should be able to tell who gets an abortion, who gets to vote or who gets to speak in public.
