As with any mass shooting in America since Columbine, leftist filmmaker Michael Moore is one of the first to initiate a call for gun control measures. And with the extreme nature of the attack in Las Vegas, Moore laid out his most ambitious call yet: he actually wrote an entirely new amendment to the Constitution that seeks to both repeal and replace the “ancient and outdated” Second Amendment.
On Facebook, Moore’s grease-stained fingers typed:
My Proposal to Repeal the Second Amendment and Replace It With This:
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.”
Moore promises his amendment to be one that secures a “State National Guard,” made up of “citizen-soldiers who are called upon in times of natural disasters or other State emergencies.” In addition, personal guns can only be used for sport and hunting. The amendment also “guarantees everyone the right to be free of, and protected from, gun violence.” He adds, “[T]he public’s safety comes ahead of an individual’s right to own and fire a gun.”
But wait, there’s Moore! Heads up, men, he’s aiming right at you, especially:
As over 90% of gun violence is committed by men, in order for a man to purchase a gun, he must first get a waiver from his current wife, plus his most recent ex-wife, or any woman with whom he is currently in a relationship (if he’s gay, he must get the waiver from his male spouse/partner). This law has greatly reduced most spousal/domestic gun murders in Canada.
The proposal also includes mental health evaluations and being proactive to prevent suicides. Moore adds the “just like a car license” argument, stating anyone that wants to own a gun must complete gun training and safety courses and pass all background checks before a gun license is dispensed. He also wants the NRA to stop the Centers for Disease Control from studying the “gun violence epidemic in the US.”
Moore wants to severely restrict the kinds of guns men can own and how they are manufactured:
All automatic and semi-automatic guns are banned.
No gun or clip [idiot] can hold more than 6 bullets.
To activate a gun for it to be used, the trigger must recognize the fingerprint of its registered owner. This will eliminate most crimes committed with a gun as 80% of these crimes are done with a stolen gun.
Not that anyone will have a gun in arms reach, anyway, because Moore’s amendment won’t allow them to be stored in the owner’s home:
One’s guns must 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. People who die from a home invasion make up a sad but minuscule .04% of all gun murders in the US. And over a third of them are killed by their own gun that the criminal has either stolen or wrestled from them.
Come on, now, Moore is trying to be fair to everyone:
These are a few of the regulations that can be enacted to both protect society yet not deny hunters and sportsmen their fun. This is the sane approach that meets everyone’s needs -- everyone, that is, except those of the serial killer, the mass murderer, the violent ex-husband, the disgruntled employee or the disturbed and bullied teenager. We will never eliminate all murder; that’s been with us since Cain killed Abel. But we CAN join the community of enlightened nations where gun violence is that rare occurrence — as opposed to the daily tragedy we now suffer here in the United States of America. This can come to an end with the repeal of the 2nd Amendment and replacing it with the 28th Amendment.
Apparently, Moore has reversed his accusation that the U.S. is a nation of gun nuts. In conclusion, he writes about mobilizing the majority of Americans who don’t own guns to squelch the rights of the rest of us:
We are not a country of gun nuts. 77% of all Americans do NOT own a gun! If three-quarters of the country has decided they have no need for a gun, three-quarters of the country may also decide they have no need for an archaic amendment that allows retired accountants to own 47 assault weapons. LET’S ORGANIZE THE 77%!
Yes! Let's all be sitting ducks!
