Let’s Amend The 2nd Amendment

4

I have to agree with the Lefties (sort of). I think it is time we amend the 2nd Amendment. For over 230 years the 2nd Amendment has been in effect protecting its citizens from the hands of those who would seek to deprive us of the Liberty so valiantly obtained. The words within the 2nd Amendment have been strongly debated in recent years. We need to change this aging document to reflect the realities of the 21st century. In the past 4 years our government has engaged in activities to corner the ammunition market with tactics similar to what the Hunt brothers did to silver in the late 1970s, except no one will fine the US government $10,000,000 for their hoarding actions.

The 2nd amendment needs to be amended to include wording to the effect that the United States government cannot corner the ammunition market and artificially inflate the prices on citizens of the United States. No, let’s amp it up and go one step further by including in the 2nd Amendment that the plethora of governmental agencies that have been buying up ammunition like a drunk in a liquor store who just robbed a bank must liquidate all excess ammunition hoards at the end of each fiscal year to the citizens at the price the government paid for it.

Really, what does the Social Security Administration need with 174,000 rounds of 357 Sig, the US Forestry with 300,000+ rounds, the FBI with 100,000,000 rounds, and the Department of Homeland Security with 1,600,000,000 rounds (yes, billion) of ammunition??? Much of these purchase hollowrequests include Hollow Point bullets, outlawed by NATO for use in modern warfare, but they can be used within our borders. I’m not willing to jump onto the conspiracy bandwagon, but come on, the US military only burns through about 70,000,000 rounds of ammo a year during a time of war. Since the left is so keen on one’s sanity being grounds for gun ownership, should we really trust guns in the hands of a government who would spend $1,500,000 to study why ¾ of lesbians are fat in the US?

Immediate action is required. Take time to write your federally elected public servants now and demand that they release the ammunition back to the people, at cost. After all, didn’t they use our money to buy it anyway?

    Having trained with Federal agencies over the years, they use HPs for both training and duty ammo. They qualify 4 times a year. When you do the math, they burn thru a lot of ammo. They do not use FMJ for anything.

    I know people are going to cry BS. I know people are going to cry that HPs for training is a waste of $$. I know people are going to argue about HPs and the military, which were banned under the Hague Convention in 1899-Hague Convention has nothing to do with federal law enforcement.

    I don’t like their hoarding anymore than anyone else, but I think the biggest problem is how much these agencies have grown and how much their powers have been expanded over the years and the seemingly never ending mission-creep.

    Not the point demand accountability then arrest the SOB’s and convict them of Fraud waste and abuse of tax payer money, conspiring to endanger the citizens of this country.

    Sir, I beg to differ, the risks of allowing any change to the 2nd are both unnecessary and introduce risks due to the now long time since the fresh in mind period when it was adopted.

    It is unnecessary to amend it in any way, it is the one right that was explicitly not open to limits. The word “infringe” means what it means, and gov’t hoarding is an infringement and there is ample evidence to prove that the founders meant it to include such “gunpowder embargo” like gov’t action.

    Beyond that, the problem is not in the verbiage, it is in the fact the gov’t has and believes it is empowered to ignore it.. The fact there is one gun control law in existence regarding owning, carrying and infringing the ability to train, aught to have alerted us to the fact that the gov’t has reached tyrannical proportion and must be corrected.
