In[1]:=
a = {{1, 2, 3, 4}, {5, 6, 7,
8}, {9, 10, 11, 12},
{13, 14, 15, 16}};

In[2]:=
a[[All,{1, 2}]]

Out[2]=
{{1, 2}, {5, 6}, {9, 10}, {13, 14}}

In[3]:=
(Take[#1, 2] & ) /@ a

Out[3]=
{{1, 2}, {5, 6}, {9, 10}, {13, 14}}

And there are other ways using the functions in the package Statistics`DataManipulation` or the functions in the package LinearAlgebra`MatrixManipulation`
