    BILL OF RIGHTS - CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENTS

    Over the years I've heard anti-Second Amendment activists and politicians talk about changing the Second Amendment or doing away with it.

    Regardless of where you stand on this, changing the Second Amendment is going down a slippery slope. If the Second can be changed why not the first, the fourth, etc. And as we have seen recently on college campuses there is a move to change and or restrict the First Amendment.

    I would like to see a Constitutional Amendment to the effect that the Bill of Rights is SET IN STONE and unchangeable. In short the Bill of Rights would stay in perpetuity - unchangeable.

    Only the Congress or the States or "Constitutional Convention," can change the Constitution and change has to be ratified by 2/3rds of Congress and States before it can take effect. The real danger is with the Supreme Court changing the "interpretation" of the 2nd Amendment or any Amendment for that matter.

      Or a POTUS that simply ignores the Constitution.

        I think the only thing lacking in the Constitution is any specific consequence for violating it. They figured we'd be wise enough to follow it forever.

          Right you are, John_R, many is the time I have thought that so much mischief might have been avoided if the Founders would have included Penalties for those who violate or seek to violate the Bill of Rights.

          In the New Republic, after the Fall of the United States of America; if we are still alive, let us remember to insist upon the inclusion of the Death Penalty for anyone--even Supreme Court Judges--for anyone who can be proven to have attempted to infringe upon our rights. That really is the only safeguard--death to any who try to take away our rights--that would be sufficient to keep us free.

            well for what iuts worth we have become subjects of rule of man rather than rule of law.
            The real rulers of this world are thr multinational coroprations.
            They can have the laws changed to suit their needs any time they want.
            We the people can only do that through constitutional convention.
            But most informed people are worried about thatprocess getting hijacked
            by money influence if it ever gets started.

              Well, delete or edit this if the mods see fit, but the framers meant for the 1A to let a free press expose abuse of power and tyranny, and for 2A to contain the solution. My, how times have changed.

                Well, the "powers that be" have chosen to ignore the 2nd & the press has elected to use the 1st to cover up what the "powers that be" are doing.

                  The 3rd Reich got the AP to be their propaganda arm, no reason not to believe the media doesn't still make these agreements with the powers that be. http://www.theguardian.com/world/201...iet-scharnberg

                      I think there is one thing we are not considering. The Amendments or Bill of Rights whichever you want to call it, is not and cannot be absolute. We cannot use our rights to violate the rights of another Citizen. All rights are equal. Their importance is not measured by their position in the Amendments. In other words, the 1st Amendment is not the most important and does not rule over all others.

                        That's where common sense is supposed to kick in. Sadly, common sense seems to have gone the way of the dodo bird in this country.

                          unfortunately, common sense appears to becoming quite rare.

                            For the record the 18th admendment was in fact repealed.. That's only 16 away from number 2.. And fact of the matter the bill or rights is just words. And if the courts or justice dep chooses to not uphold these words then they are meaningless.. Lately is seems like the justice dept is ignoring a lot of things..

                              Actually the 18th was voided by another Amendment (I think the 18th is still listed as an Amendment) the 21st which was ratified by 46 States. Connecticut and Rhode Island were the only two States that did not vote in favor. The Twenty-first Amendment allowed States to maintain an effective and uniform system for controlling liquor by regulating its transportation, importation, and use.. So there could be another Amendment approved by the States which would void the 2nd Amendment. But I can't see 66.6% of the States ratifying it. Congress would have to have 66.6% approval for any Amendment. A Constitutional Convention is a little vague. It requires 2/3rds of the States approving a Convention and then a percentage of Delegates from each State attend the Convention?
