Constitutional scholar Chris Cuomo reminds us rubes what the Second Amendment ‘was created for’ (and other fun facts)

CNN’s Chris Cuomo decided to keep the gun control town hall festivities going on Twitter this morning:
To those against removing ar style weapons, what about requiring the same process as a concealed carry permit to buy one?

NO. Nobody needs an AR or assault style weapon. Ask yourself WHY someone would need one, and the answer will be apparent, assuming you are a person who values life, and I believe you do.

Prepare to be schooled, Derrick:
Do you remember what the 2a was created for? That there was no individual right contemplated until Scalia read it in? If you are an originalist about the constitution you have no basis for thinking you and not the state controls access. https://twitter.com/nomad574/status/1159450129344147458

This is the guy CNN decided should preside over a town hall about guns.
Chris Cuomo, ladies and gentlemen.
His source is his own magnificent brain. Isn’t that good enough for you?

Both. He’s both.
This is a wildly inaccurate assertion, Chris, but you've already shown repeatedly that you struggle to understand law and the Constitution.

The 2A is there to deter against a tyrannical gov’t. The British confiscated weapons from the colonists IOT keep them in line and needful of the Crown’s defense rather than their own.

The Second Amendment doesn't reserve the right to keep and bear arms for the militia or the states. It reserves it to the people. Just as with the First Amendment, Fourth Amendment, and Tenth Amendment.

Oddly, we never see these sorts of arguments over who can peaceably assemble and petition the government for a redress of grievences. That's a right specifically resevered for the people as well.

Don’t worry — there’s plenty more where that came from:
Implied nothing. I am asking about why you need it. The argument “if I want it I get it” is not recognized under the law...even Scalia admitted there must be limits. Machine guns were outlawed because there was no need that justified the risk. Was that wrong too? https://twitter.com/editor_wp/status/1159450941915107328

Armalite. But as you know it is now expanded to encompass a style rather than a manufacturer. You don’t need to know the history of the weapon to question its use in these mass shootings. So calm down and focus on how to protect people better. https://twitter.com/k1erry/status/1159451520959766533

Big 2A supporter. I don’t own an AR, don’t need one, don’t plan on getting one. I don’t have a problem with an assault weapon ban. BUT. The concern I have is it’s a Trojan Horse for a complete ban on all guns. It’s a different climate than 1994.

Bernie Sanders wants to “ban assault weapons,” an intentionally vague term. Beto O’Rourke says as president, he’d institute a mandatory gun buyback, aka confiscation, program. Kamala Harris would send law enforcement to people’s houses to confiscate their legally owned firearms. This isn’t “paranoia and fringe right propaganda.” This is the Democratic platform. Chris Cuomo is free to surrender his gun to the government. He’s not free to compel anyone else to do the same.
If they can have an AR style weapon, why not full auto machine guns, rocket launchers, or even nukes? I think the answer is because it’s too dangerous to the rest of us.

Reduce the number of guns and reduce the number of gun deaths. It’s really that simple.

Chris, why is it that when SCOTUS declares that abortion is a fundamental right, but when SCOTUS reaffirms a long held historical right, somehow it's one justice's opinion and wrong. Note: it wasn't just his opinion.
