State Lawmakers Propose Legislation to 'Repeal' the Second Amendment

• By The Free Thought Project

Legislators in Hawaii, which has some of the most restrictive gun laws in the United States, moved this week to bring their concerns about the Second Amendment to the national level.

In Senate Concurrent Resolution (SCR) No. 42, introduced Tuesday, Democratic lawmakers assert that

in light of the numerous tragic mass shootings at schools, work places, and public events, this body believes that it is necessary to repeal or amend the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution.

In the resolution, lawmakers urge Congress to

adopt a proposed amendment to the United States Constitution pursuant to article V of the United States Constitution to clarify the constitutional right to bear arms.

The sponsors of the resolution suggest the Framers' use of the term "well-regulated militia" was "intended only to restrict the United States Congress from legislating away a state's right to self-defense."

If they repeal any of the Bill of rights, they will be shooting themselves in the foot. Why? Because the BoR doesn't give us our rights. Getting rid of any part of it will only wake us up to where our rights are found. --- They might call it a firearm. You call it your property. They can't force you to accept their terminology against your beliefs. But you have to say it, and stand your ground. Again, listen to to see what to do. Also, listen to for a good description by Gus of the difference between a man/woman and a person, as he explains it to Jessica Love.
