Just when we thought the radical left — inspired by a bunch of wayward high school kids — had finally jumped the shark on gun control, former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens takes the cake.

“But the demonstrators should seek more effective and more lasting reform,” he continued. “They should demand a repeal of the Second Amendment.”
