The Senate in Hawaii voted the week of March 7th to propose repealing the second amendment to the Constitution. In their resolution (SCR) No. 42 Democratic lawmakers (no surprise there) assert that “In light of the numerous tragic mass shootings at schools, work places, and public events, this body believes that it is necessary to repeal or amend the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution.” They want to amend the United States Constitution via article V to clarify what our right to bear arms really means.
They assert that the use of the term “well-regulated militia” was only intended to prevent the federal government from legislating away a state’s right for self-defense. They believe in the collective rights interpretation to the constitution not the individual right with regards to the second amendment.
Every other right in the bill of rights is individual except of course the second amendment.
Antonin Scalia wrote:
“The Second Amendment protects an individual’s right to possess a firearm unconnected with service in a militia, and to use that arm for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home.”
And of course, Thomas Jefferson said it this way in 1776 while drafting the Constitution for Virginia:
“No freeman shall ever be debarred the use of arms”
This has long been the desire of the totalitarian, despotic, Democratic party to disarm the citizens of the United States. We will see how far they push this scheme at the national level.
