    Re: BILL OF RIGHTS - CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENTS

    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.

    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.

    Or a POTUS that simply ignores the Constitution.

    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.

    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.
