“First, the easier it is to get a gun, the easier it is to make use of one.
Second, a violent act involving a gun is far more likely to result in fatalities or multiple casualties than a violent act involving some other type of weapon.
The notion, therefore, that there is no meaningful correlation between the nation’s relatively lenient gun control laws and the extent of the nation’s gun violence simply defies common sense. It also contradicts the empirical evidence.” NY TIMES”
The Second Amendment was written in 1791. Relevant in 2017? Hear a resounding ” No! “
It doesnt take a genius to compute: This was Written over 220 years ago
(NOTE: was written before bullets and revolvers were invented)
adopted on December 15, 1791, as part of the first ten amendments contained in the Bill of Rights
States: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
Such language has created considerable debate regarding the Amendment’s intended scope.
Michael Moore proposes:
PROPOSED 28th AMENDMENT TO THE US CONSTITUTION
“A well regulated State National Guard, being helpful to the safety and security of a State in times of need, along with the strictly regulated right of the people to keep and bear a limited number of non-automatic Arms for sport and hunting, with respect to the primary right of all people to be free from gun violence, this shall not be infringed.”
I, Michael Moore, along with all who support an end to this epidemic of gun violence, propose a new Amendment to our Constitution that repeals the ancient and outdated 2nd Amendment
(which was written before bullets and revolvers were even invented),
and replaces it with a new 28th Amendment that guarantees States can have State militias (a.k.a. State National Guards which are made up of citizen-soldiers who are called upon in times of natural disasters or other State emergencies),
allows individuals to use guns for sport and gathering food, and guarantees everyone the right to be free of, and protected from, gun violence (i.e., the public’s safety comes ahead of an individual’s right to own and fire a gun).
Mike and Cindy tell everyone their small arsenal of guns – are to protect their home. While they can’t quote the Second Amenedment – they are card carrying NRA members – who stand behind The Secondn Amendment.
