Draft Amendment – Gun Rights and the Death Penalty
This amendment is proposed in order to update and clarify the meaning and public intent of the 2nd Amendment of the US Constitution,
Right to Bear Arms.
The exact wording of the 2nd Amendment to the US Constitution is as follows:
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.
The 2nd Edition of the CS2News Report presents a direct and practical response to the shootings at schools and public events in recent times. The proposed Amendment I first posted on the main website www.commonsense2nd.com last year. I have expanded the scope of that draft Amendment to meet this situation. The updated draft is posted on the website under the Amendments option. It will be refined basis public feedback from all parties involved in this important issue.
I prepared this YouTube video and PodCast in direct response to the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL. The students and families from that High School and tens of thousands more around the country are actively pursuing this type of legislation. They do not want this to become “just another mass shooting”. And neither do the rest of us. We are tired of the senseless killings and the excessive and lingering legal aftermath. And tired of the NRA forcing Gun Rights legislation that only protects gun manufacturers!
We the People, the nation, needs this timely draft Amendment to be debated and finalized with our citizens approval. In that way, gun owners can be secure about their weapons and that the general public will feel that the risk of more mass shootings is be reduced (it can never be eliminated unfortunately) through targeted legislation and its aggressive enforcement. *-
I ask you to read, consider, and maybe send in some sincere comments. I especially need gun owners to consider supporting the raising of the general age of gun ownership to twenty-one (21) years of age. Also, to help in compiling a detailed list of certain rifles that would be allowed for ownership by someone in the 18 to 21-year-old age range.
This proposed Amendment intends to literally guarantee gun owners their ownership and privacy rights. And at the same time legislate to deter anyone from using any type of weapon to seriously assault or kill another person.
This is your Amendment. Treat it with care and respect! Work with me to refine a piece of common sense legislation that will make a real difference, end the on-going battle over Gun Rights, and demand an effective deterrence to free-will murders.
Please forward "constructive" comments and suggestions on the draft to email@example.com and/or firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks and take care, A J
