About the “We need to amend the Constitution to ban the Second Amendment.”

Good luck with that. Statistics are not in your favor:

ammend constitution

And as for a Constitutional Convention, I think you have a better chance to get Medicare to pay for a Barret .50 BMG and thousand rounds of ammo. If what I read is accurate, 200 attempts have been made with zero results.

And, of course, there is that thing about the Bill of Rights being rights not given by the Constitution but just enumerated therefore outside the scope of a Constitutional Convention.

  1. Passing an Amendment is a pretty big hurdle. You need 2/3rds of Congress to begin with, and then 3/4th of all the States to ratify.

  2. The big thing to remember about a Constitutional Convention (the other way of proposing an amendment) is that once it is convened the floor is open to anything the members want to propose. I’m not worried about Congress so much as I am about the rabble that will most likely be voted/appointed as representatives to any ConCon.

    stay safe.

  3. I agree with skidmark. I am afraid any con-con will be populated by the same “activist” people that always show up to protest. The rest of us have jobs and lives. Who can take off six months or more to attend and vote?

    Also, what happens when you have “leaders” that fight as hard for your position like Boehner and McConnell are doing for the Republican cause?

  4. Even a Convention is a pretty high hurdle- 2/3rds of the States need to agree that it is needed, 2/3rds of the convention agree to pass the legislation, and then 3/4th of the States still need to vote yes for ratification.

    Plus, a Constitutional Convention is not an open attendance caucus. They would be picked delegates from each state, not whosoever decides to show up.

  5. This is suppose to be a free country we should never have to worry about our constitution or our rights being infringed.This is just not being a real american if you vote for this change,this should be considered a form of treason.

    1. No, the ability to vote to change Amendments is a Constitutional Right, actually enshrined in the document. If 75% of Americans think an Amendment must be tossed, and go through the Constitutionally designated means to do so, that is not treason in any way, shape, or form.
