"The second amendment will never be repealed", Trump tweeted Wednesday. President Trump tweeted in response to retired Justice John Paul Stevens's op-ed in the New York Times calling on Americans to rid the Constitution of our right to bear arms.

Trump said the piece highlights the necessity of electing GOP senators, to ensure the quick confirmation of Republican Supreme Court appointees.

- A call from a retired U.S. Supreme Court justice to repeal the Second Amendment has President Donald Trump saying "no way" as he hopes to make a solidly conservative court the lasting legacy of his time in office.

"For over 200 years after the adoption of the Second Amendment, it was uniformly understood as not placing any limit on either federal or state authority to enact gun control legislation", Stevens wrote. Stevens was one of four dissenters.

"Rarely in my lifetime have I seen the type of civic engagement school children and their supporters demonstrated in Washington and other major cities throughout the country this past Saturday", the former judge wrote, adding, "They should demand a repeal of the Second Amendment". In the end, he says, repealing the amendment is the only way to protect schoolchildren from mass shootings.

"That decision - which I remain convinced was wrong and certainly was debatable - has provided the N.R.A. with a propaganda weapon of vast power".

Stevens called on March for Our Lives protesters to pressure Congress to repeal the right to bear arms, which he described as outdated. A debate on school safety and guns with teenagers on CNN's "New Day" turned heavily on race and did not specifically mention the Second Amendment, but Jacob Scott, a 17-year-old from Florida, warned about gun control efforts as "gun grabbing".

"THE SECOND AMENDMENT WILL NEVER BE REPEALED!" he declared (all caps are his). An amendment to the constitution can only be proposed either by Congress with a two thirds vote in both houses or by a constitutional convention called for by two thirds of the state legislatures.

"It protects the preexisting right to use guns by members of a militia", Stevens said at the time. "This is exactly the kind of thing that motivates the right and signals to working-class swing voters that perhaps the Democratic Party and the political left doesn't really get them".

"This is playing into the Republican talking point that this is the ultimate goal of gun control advocates, which is to take away guns, to not have gun ownership be a right, to repeal the Second Amendment", Blake said.
