Michael Moore said it’s time to repeal the “ancient and outdated” Second Amendment in response to the Las Vegas massacre that left more than 50 people dead and hundreds injured.
“My Proposal to Repeal the Second Amendment and Replace It With This,” the 63-year-old filmmaker wrote in a lengthy Facebook post Wednesday, as he mentioned his proposal for what he called the 28th Amendment.
“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,” he added.
“I, Michael Moore, along with all who support an end to this epidemic of gun violence, propose a new Amendment to our Constitution that repeals the ancient and outdated 2nd Amendment (which was written before bullets and revolvers were even invented), and replaces it with a new 28th Amendment that guarantees States can have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,” he continued.
