A gun sitting on the table is no danger to anyone.
Unless the wrong person grabs it. Then it’s a danger to everyone.
That’s how it is with a New York constitutional convention. In theory, it’s a fine thing. In reality, it would be a catastrophe.
Because it would fall into the wrong hands.
If New York exercises its every-20-year option to convene a constitutional convention, to rewrite the basic law of the state, that convention will be packed with the slime that comprises the state’s political class.
