When pushing for gun control, it’s often the “scary” guns that liberals go after. “Assault weapons,” “semi-automatic weapons,” and other scary-sounding terms that liberals don’t understand are usually the targets. I don’t think there’s any doubt that most gun control advocates would push to ban ALL guns if they thought it was politically feasible, but most realize that it isn’t.
Since they can’t propose such sweeping legislation, they go after individual types of firearms. The greatest threat to our Second Amendment rights isn’t a repeal of the Amendment, but rather death by a thousand (regulatory) cuts, as each cumulative minor gun control measure ads up.
Luckily for us, repealing the Second Amendment is easier said than done. In fact, as ReasonTV outlines, it’s pretty much impossible!
Here’s all there is to it:
Step 1: Elect. For a gun-free America, the first thing you’ll need is two-thirds of Congress. So elect a minimum of 67 Senators and 290 Representatives who are on your side.
Step 2: Propose. Then, have them vote to propose an amendment to the Constitution which repeals Second Amendment gun rights for all Americans.
Step 3: Ratify. Then convince the legislators of 38 states to ratify that change.
At this point, the Second Amendment is history, but you’ve done nothing to decrease gun violence. All you’ve done is remove the barrier for Congress to act.
Step 4: Legislate. You need to enact “common sense” reform.
You can try to do what Australia did and…ban all guns? That’s not at all what they did, but whatever, f*** it. Go big or go home, right?
It will have to be passed by Congress and signed by the president.
Great! The law is passed and guns are now illegal. The only thing left to do is…
Step 5: Enforce. Guns won’t just disappear because you passed a law. You need to confiscate some 350 million guns scattered among 330 Million Americans.
The rest you have to take.
It’s just that easy, right? It’s actually next to impossible, and that’s the entire point. Just don’t expect liberals to accept the reality of the situation.
