Sunday on Twitter, propagandist filmmaker and hate-mongering provocateur Michael Moore posted his idea for a new Second Amendment, one that would repeal and replace the original which features, among other gun-confiscating demands, a ban on all semiautomatic firearms.
Moore’s new amendment, for example, replaces the right to “keep and bear arms” with an “inalienable right to be kept safe from gun violence.”
It ludicrously requires “a strict vetting process with a thorough background check, including the written and confidential approval of family members, spouses and ex-spouses and/or partners and ex-partners, co-workers and neighbors. A mental health check will also be required.”
Moore’s gun-grabbing amendment also would raise the minimum purchase age for all firearms to 25 and put a one-month waiting period in place. Predictably, it would also mandate gun owner licensing and registration, because of course Moore wants the government to keep strict track of who might be an obstacle to its control of the populace.
It also bans semiautomatic firearms and any non-semiautomatic firearm that can hold more than six rounds. It puts ammunition under Congressional purview and makes clear that Congress will publish an ever-changing list of the firearms that are legal to own.
Moore is a Big-Government totalitarian who wants the citizenry disarmed. This is precisely the kind of tyranny the Founding Fathers had in mind with the original Second Amendment.
