Liberal “filmmaker” Michael Moore, not being one who could ever let a good tragedy go to waste without leveraging it for media attention to keep himself somehow relevant in the mainstream, decided to voice his thoughts about the Las Vegas shooting and the Second Amendment.
Because we were all just dying to know what he thought about those two subjects, right? Yeah, me neither. But that never seems to stop the guy from running his lips.
Moore, who has been working toward making sure President Trump is “evicted” from office, stated that he believes it’s time to do something about that pesky right to bear arms nonsense.
I mean, if guns were illegal, no one would shoot anyone, right? I mean, it’s not like we already outlawed murder or anything.
This guy is nuts. Pure and simple.
Left-wing filmmaker Michael Moore took a detour Wednesday morning from his campaign to evict Republican President Donald Trump from office and set his sights on gun rights.
In the wake of the deadly Las Vegas mass shooting Sunday night, Moore proposed a 28th amendment to the United States Constitution that “repeals the ancient and outdated 2nd Amendment.”
He began his lengthy Facebook post with the following preamble:
“A well regulated State National Guard, being helpful to the safety and security of a State in times of need, along with the strictly regulated right of the people to keep and bear a limited number of non-automatic Arms for sport and hunting, with respect to the primary right of all people to be free from gun violence, this shall not be infringed.”
Moore — noting the Second Amendment was “written before bullets and revolvers were even invented” — said his proposed amendment “guarantees States can have State militias (a.k.a. State National Guards which are made up of citizen-soldiers who are called upon in times of natural disasters or other State emergencies), allows individuals to use guns for sport and gathering food, and guarantees everyone the right to be free of, and protected from, gun violence (i.e., the public’s safety comes ahead of an individual’s right to own and fire a gun).”
“As over 90% of gun violence is committed by men, in order for a man to purchase a gun, he must first get a waiver from his current wife, plus his most recent ex-wife, or any woman with whom he is currently in a relationship (if he’s gay, he must get the waiver from his male spouse/partner),” he wrote. “This law has greatly reduced most spousal/domestic gun murders in Canada.”
“All automatic and semi-automatic guns are banned,” Moore added.
“No gun or clip can hold more than 6 bullets,” he continued.
And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. His amendment goes on and on forever and a day.
Gee, since criminals don’t respect the laws as is and often obtain guns illegally, how is taking away guns from law abiding citizens going to help?
Short answer: It isn’t.
The right to defend yourself, your property, and your liberty comes from God, therefore, no man-made government has the right to infringe upon it, no matter what crazy criminals do.
Bad guys would love nothing more than to see America become an unarmed populace, ripe for the picking.
Let’s not make their job any easier.
