Much to her surprise, a Texas law professor’s statement that it’s time to consider replacing the Second Amendment has unleashed a storm of controversy.

Mary Margaret “Meg” Penrose, a professor at the new Texas A&M University School of Law in Fort Worth, spoke Friday at the University of Connecticut School of Law’s symposium titled “Up in Arms: The Second Amendment in the Modern Republic.”

Penrose, whose areas of concentration include constitutional law, said she supports a states’-rights approach to the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

States, not the federal government, should be able to decide who has guns and how those weapons should be used, she said.

“Not one place did I suggest there should be a gun ban,” Penrose said Monday by phone.
