    Lightbulb The Second Amendment Book Bomb

    December 15 marks America’s Bill of Rights Day, the anniversary of the ratification of the Bill of Rights of the U.S. Constitution. To commemorate this event, we have created the Second Amendment Book Bomb, a unique and powerful way to communicate the importance of the Bill of Rights’ Second Amendment for the protection of liberty. With your help, we can launch constitutional rights to the top of national book bestseller lists, making a loud and clear statement that Second Amendment rights are inalienable!

    If a constitutional convention goes forward, you can kiss it all goodbye:
    U.S. now only 2 states away from rewriting Constitution

    I didn't read the whole thing. Have all 32 states requested the EXACT same thing (I.E. repeal of 17th Amendment)? If not, SCOTUS has said it doesn't count.

    Any specific amendments would still have to be ratified by 3/4 of the states to take effect.

    That kind of support does not currently exist for any major issue.

    I like the fact that folks bring these things up for everyone to be aware of but...

    I seriously doubt 3/4 of the states are gonna agree on abolishing the 2A.

    Kiss it all goodbye? Nah, the sky is not falling. Yet.

    Bump.

    The Founders' Second Amendment Book Bomb

    This is making the rounds of several right-leaning websites and blogs. It looks like a well-researched and solidly written book.

    The Southern states will not ratify a new Constitution unless it allows secession (which it most surely won't!) There are too many parts of this country that would seek autonomy or at least partial autonomy (the South, California, and Southwest.) A new Constitutional Convention would lead to political Balkanization and our government knows that. A new Constitution would mean the end of the United States we know and lead to more of a European Union type set-up, especially in light of current conditions and mutual distrust of the Federal government.

    I just started reading it ("The Founders' Second Amendment: Origins of the Right to Bear Arms", Stephen P. Halbrook, 2008). I am sure it is excellent.

    I just finished a library copy of a 1984 book written by the same author, "That Every Man Be Armed: the Evolution of a Constitutional Right". This book is fantastic! It covers the right of the armed citizen from ancient Greece and Rome, England, the American Revolution, and lists tons of details on lots of relevant court cases (SCOTUS and otherwise). I must buy a copy because it is an excellent 2A reference.
