Supporters of gun control “should demand a repeal of the Second Amendment,” former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens says in a New York Times op-ed. Stevens authored an impassioned dissent from the Supreme Court's 2008 decision that affirmed an individual right to bear arms, and said in his op-ed that the court’s ruling “has provided the N.R.A. with a propaganda weapon of immense power.”

Between the lines: Since the 2008 ruling, the Supreme Court has allowed a series of state gun control laws to take effect, including assault-weapons bans passed in the wake of the Sandy Hook shooting. The court has declined to review lower court decisions upholding those laws — which isn’t quite the same as upholding them itself, but is still an indication that at least some limits on guns can survive, even with the Second Amendment intact.

The Rockefeller Foundation announced on Monday that it will allocate $1 billion over the next three years to address the pandemic and its aftermath.

Why it matters: The mishandled pandemic and the effects of climate change threaten to reverse global progress and push more than 100 million people into poverty around the world. Governments and big NGOs need to ensure that the COVID-19 recovery reaches everyone who needs it.

Fox News President Jay Wallace and anchors Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum are among those recommended to get tested and quarantine after possible exposure to COVID-19, the New York Times first reported Sunday night.

The big picture: The Fox News contingent, which also included "The Five" show hosts Juan Williams and Dana Perino, were on a charter flight from Nashville to New York following Thursday's presidential debate with a person who later tested positive for the coronavirus.
