Chris Cuomo: Nobody is Trying to Repeal the 2nd Amendment, Despite NYT Op-Eds Saying Just That

The CNN host has claimed multiple times that liberals don't want to repeal gun protections, despite several New York Times pieces calling for that very measure.

CNN’s Chris Cuomo claimed on his show Thursday morning that liberals are not actually trying to repeal the Second Amendment, and Americans should ignore their repeated calls to do just that.

Is the gun control debate really not about “better rules” but rather “about getting rid of the Second Amendment altogether?” Cuomo asked.

He then dismissed concerns, including President Trump’s, that liberals wanted to take away American Second Amendment rights.

The CNN host then cited former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens’ New York Times opinion piece literally entitled, “Repeal the Second Amendment.” Cuomo tried to portray Stevens as a conservative Republican (likely because he was appointed by a Republican president), despite his very liberal legacy on the court.

“Other people have echoed this sentiment [of repealing the Second Amendment] as well,” he added. “But is it real? Or is it a distraction from bringing people together to answer the fundamental question of how do we stop these shootings?”

On his Twitter feed, Cuomo has also denied that liberals are calling for a repeal of the Second Amendment.

But the Stevens opinion piece is the third in recent months with the exact same title. “Repeal the Second Amendment” is the title of an October piece from supposedly conservative columnist Bret Stephens. And the writer wrote another piece in February entitled “To Repeat: Repeal the Second Amendment.”
