    The Nation’s justice correspondent Elie Mystal argued the Second
    Amendment was only intended for preserving slavery and ending slave

    The frequent MSNBC guest appeared on Peacock’s "The Mehdi Hasan Show" Wednesday to discuss the revived debate on the Second Amendment. Hasan
    noted that Mystal’s book, "Allow Me to Retort: A Black Guy's Guide to
    the Constitution," claimed that the "original purpose" of the amendment
    was about slavery.

    "There was an original purpose to the Second Amendment, but it wasn’t
    to keep people safe. It was to preserve white supremacy and slavery,"
    Hasan quoted from the book.

    Mystal explained further that the need for "a well-regulated militia"
    came only out of the desire to put down slave revolts.


    Just think of the progress the US could have made if slaves had never
    been brought to this country. The progress we have made so far can be
    compared to to a ship sailing with its anchor down, trying to cross the Atlantic ocean.
