JWR & HJL:
After reading the article Bloomberg’s Anti-National Concealed Carry Reciprocity Bill Editorial Shoots Itself in the Foot – DSV, with reference to ten years from now, I was reminded of an article concerning the proposed Article V Convention. This I believe is one of the most, if not the most, important matter we need to keep ourselves aware of and do all in our power to defeat it before the required number of states can be met. This is an outstanding website with untold valuable information concerning our country and Constitution. I believe your readers would benefit from using the info contained to educate themselves and others on how our Republic was set up and how it’s “supposed” to work.
This particular article has links referencing one of the supposed new constitutions (there are five already pre-written) that could be enacted should an Article V Convention be called. Reading the one linked is nothing short of scary, and I served three tours in Southeast Asia and don’t scare easily. One in particular: Article I – B – Section 8 reads; “SECTION 8. There shall be a responsibility to avoid violence and to keep the peace; for this reason the bearing of arms or the possession of lethal weapons shall be confined to the police, members of the armed forces, and those licensed under law.”
Please read through the proposed “Constitution for the Newstates of America” and come to your own conclusions.
I don’t hear much regarding this matter posted anywhere and believe your readers, and many more, need to be made and kept aware of it. It is my firm belief that should an Article V Convention be called, with this present day political climate such as it is, America as we know it will cease to exist, and the conclusion will be a most disastrous affair. It will, I believe, inevitably lead to the second revolution with the outcome the same, with many more deaths. But perhaps that is what is needed in our present day– for the Tree of Liberty to be nourished with the blood of Patriots and tyrants. Semper Fi – God – Country – Corps – N.S.
