Well, if that’s how they’re gonna word it…

…it might as well not even exist:

 PROPOSED AMENDMENT (2nd Amendment — ed.) : “Because a well-regulated National Guard and Reserve, and well-regulated Federal, state, and local public safety departments, are necessary to the security of our free states and our free nation, the rights of citizens, while serving in their capacity in the aforesaid organizations, to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”

So, in other words, they think the Second Amendment should perhaps be redefined to say the government shouldn’t take guns away from the National Guard or any other government agencies — or worse, that the only time a citizen has a right to own a gun is when he or she is wielding it on behalf of the government. That’s not much of a right. I shudder to think of what they propose be done to the other amendments.

    Hmm, let me try my version

    PROPOSED AMENDMENT (2nd Amendment — ed.) : “Because a well-regulated National Guard and Reserve, and well-regulated Federal, state, and local public safety departments, are often antithetical to the security of our free states and our free nation, the rights of citizens, while serving in their capacity as a check on the aforesaid organizations, to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed ; up to and including what every weaponry shall be possessed or used by the aforesaid organizations.

    What say you?

    Okay, if you include every federal agency, UN task force, and US military. Otherwise the National Guard etc., will be completely disarmed.
