Brace yourselves, because Lauren Duca’s about to shut down the American gun control debate — with a little help from a “burly Aussie”:
A burly Aussie man put our gun debate into condemning clarity:
"Why do you act like you can't change the 2nd Amendment? It's an AMENDMENT."
— Lauren Duca (@laurenduca) October 24, 2017
Wow, Lauren. That is, like, so deep and stuff.
— Brianna (@briannafjackson) October 24, 2017
Oh, sorry. Did we say “deep”? We meant “totally asinine.”
And repeating that ignorant remark indicates… what, exactly?

This is the kind of thing not very bright people think passes for deep thought. https://t.co/rvKH3FQXkt

No one is acting like we can't change the Second Amendment. We're acting like we don't want to. https://t.co/Teb8OcZ4RL

I mean, probably b/c there's no will to change it but I'm no burly Aussie man asking pointless questions
— Christine (@cmdeb) October 24, 2017
I suppose being Aussie can explain that kind of ignorance of the American founding.
What's your excuse?
— Judge Smails (@JSmails) October 24, 2017
What part of " …the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." do you not understand?
— Just Ed (@Tall_Ed) October 24, 2017
Wonder if she doesn’t understand there is a “not” in the 19th amendment, too.
— Gege (@Pomquat) October 24, 2017
So's the 19th. Is that up for discussion since it was merely an amendment as well?
— Crash (@Boognish12) October 24, 2017
Why not the first? Or the fourth?
— Hughard Mill (@howiemill93) October 24, 2017
So repeal it. https://t.co/Ldl8H5Ok2i

That's not how it works though, is it? Thought you'd need to propose, pass & have states ratify a new amendment to supercede it
— Charles EP Murphy (@cepmurphy) October 24, 2017
And luckily for you, the Constitution comes with detailed instructions on how to change it. Good luck!
— Chuck Vipperman (@ChuckVipperman) October 24, 2017
Do it. Try to change it. Go ahead. Let’s see how that works.
— Brian Webb (@bwebbie) October 24, 2017
Go ahead and try. You'll fail, but at least you can say you tried.
— That guy (@jesterk1ng) October 24, 2017
We look forward to watching her and burly Aussie man dismantle our constitutional right to bear arms. Though inquiring minds wanna know: Why does Lauren need a burly Aussie man’s help to make a point?
Sounds like toxic masculinity to me. https://t.co/gLX8gLsfuz
