St. Louis Mayor: ‘The Second Amendment Does Not Mean Everybody Should Have Access to Firearms’

‘They can take weapons out of the hands of 18-year-olds who have access to weapons of war, and be able to purchase weapons at 18’

EXCERPT:

JONES: “Right. The Second Amendment has been misinterpreted in recent years to mean that everybody should have access to a gun. And we all know that the Second Amendment, the reason the Framers wrote that was because — to have a well-regulated militia. Individual people are not a well-regulated militia. So the Second Amendment does not mean that everybody should have access to firearms. The background check issue is huge here too. Especially in issues of domestic violence. So we have to do something. I am cautiously optimistic that Congress will act, but unfortunately, we’ve seen this story before.”
