Yesterday, documentary filmmaker and left-wing activist Michael Moore took to Facebook, urging Congress to pass the 28th Amendment to the Constitution, which would repeal and replace the “ancient and outdated” Second Amendment.
The new amendment, according to Moore, would guarantee that “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).”
It would also allow “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).
Per the lengthy post, Moore is proposing the following language for the new amendment:
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.
Additionally, Moore said the amendment would include conditions to ban all “automatic and semiautomatic guns,” and would require that all guns be “smart guns.” Interestingly enough, there’s some convenient irony here, as most “smart gun” technology implemented to-date has been integrated into semiautomatic pistols.
Moore’s amendment would also require one’s guns be stored at a licensed gun club or government-regulated gun storage facility. “Believing that having a gun in your home provides you with protection is an American myth,” he claims.
As you can imagine, Moore is going to receive a lot of liberal support in this. However, we simply can not allow it. That said, we, too, need to let our voices be heard.
If we do not, according to the process for amending the constitution, all Moore and his liberal supporters would need is a two-thirds vote for the amendment in both the House of Representatives and the Senate. Beyond those votes, they’d simply need the support of 38 out of 50 states. After that, well…the repeal becomes real, and we can kiss our Second Amendment rights — as we know them today — goodbye!
