    Newsom Launches Drive For 28th Amendment Focused On Gun Control

    Newsom Launches Drive For 28th Amendment Focused On Gun Control

    SATURDAY, JUN 10, 2023 - 06:00 PM

    Governor Gavin Newsom on Thursday announced a California-led drive to amend the US Constitution to impose new, nationwide restrictions on gun ownership
    .
    "The 28th Amendment will enshrine in the Constitution common sense gun safety measures that Democrats, Republicans, Independents, and gun owners overwhelmingly support – while leaving the 2nd Amendment unchanged and respecting America’s gun-owning tradition," said Newsom in a statement.
    His claim that such a move would "leave the 2nd Amendment intact" is quite an eye-roller: While the 2nd Amendment's language may not change, Newsom's 28th Amendment would clearly represent a frontal assault on the scope of the 2nd Amendment's protection of the right of armed self-defense.

    Newsom didn't propose specific language, but he did outline five goals:

    • Setting 21 as a national minimum age for buying a firearm
    • Imposing a universal background check regime
    • Barring sales of "assault weapons that serve no other purpose than to kill as many people as possible in a short amount of time"
    • Imposing a "reasonable" waiting period for every firearm purchase
    • "Affirm[ing that] Congress, states, and local governments can enact additional common-sense gun safety regulations that save lives"

    It's worth noting that his "assault weapon" ban would only apply to "civilians." It seems he's content for police to have weapons "that serve no other purpose than to kill as many people as possible in a short amount of time."
    Regarding his proposed minimum purchase age, Newsom said, "if you can't buy a beer, you shouldn't be able to buy a gun." Of course, the requirement to be 21 years old to buy alcohol is itself a form of tyranny.

    Gavin and his ilk see mass shootings as opportunities to be exploited. California has had multiple mass shootings this year, and already has all the gun laws Newsom would nationalize under the "28th Amendment", and more.

    Gun control advocates have been reeling since last summer's momentous Supreme Court decision
    that created a new test for determining the constitutionality of gun control measures. Unless a given measure is found to be "consistent with the nation's historical tradition of firearm regulation" -- and specifically, tradition dating to the founding era -- that measure is invalid. Courts have been shooting down gun laws left and right.
    “We’re sick of being on the defense and throwing up our hands," Newsom told Politico. "We want to go on the offense and be for something and build a movement that’s bottom up, not top down.”
    In collaboration with California state legislators, Newsom is championing a national amendment convention focused on gun control. Under Article V of the Constitution, amendments can be proposed by Congress, or they can be drafted by states in "a convention for proposing amendments."
    For such a convention to happen, Newsom and other gun control advocates will need two-thirds of the state legislatures to call for a convention. (Governors have no role in the process.) That translates to 34 states, a daunting threshold considering Democrats only control 20 state legislatures.
    Newsom's announcement looks more like a publicity stunt than a sincere effort to mold the Constitution. He's funding the push with leftover money from his 2022 reelection campaign.

    "Assuming Newsom is serious (which seems highly doubtful), he wants to treat the U.S. Constitution as a vehicle for detailed public policies rather than a framework that constrains those policies," writes Jacob Sullum at Reason.
    In branding his proposal as the "28th Amendment," Newsom assumes no other new amendments will precede it. While the convention-of-states avenue has never produced an amendment, an ongoing, conservative-led drive for a convention crossed the halfway-point to 34 states last summer. Goals for that convention push include congressional term limits, repeal of the income tax, and giving states the power to negate any federal law or regulation with an official rejection by three-fifths of the legislatures.

    Gov. Newsom of California wants to SCRAP the Second Amendment by pushing new 28th Amendment

    (Natural News) Since he and his party have been unsuccessful in their attempts to scrap the Second Amendment entirely, California Gov. Gavin Newsom proposed a new 28th Amendment this week that would “enshrine fundamental, broadly supported gun safety measures into law.”
    In a press release, Newsom claimed that his 28th Amendment plan will “leav[e] the 2nd Amendment unchanged” while “respecting America’s gun-owning tradition,” even though it would impose sweeping new “common sense constitutional protections and gun safety measures that Democrats, Republicans, independent voters and gun owners overwhelmingly support.”
    What do these “common sense constitutional protections and gun safety measures” entail? According to Newsom, they include instituting universal background checks, raising the firearm purchase age to 21, mandating a firearm purchase waiting period and stopping the civilian purchase of so-called “assault weapons.”
    (Related: Newsom had a meltdown recently over Target’s decision to remove satanic LGBT pride apparel for babies from some of its retail stores.)
    Nothing about Newsom’s 28th Amendment proposal is constitutional

    Newsom did not actually come up with the idea, but rather stole it from left-wing filmmaker and propagandist Michael Moore who nearly a year ago wrote the following about what a newly imposed 28th Amendment would do to the Second Amendment:
    “The inalienable right of a free people to be kept safe from gun violence and the fear thereof must not be infringed and shall be protected by the Congress and the States. This Amendment thus repeals and replaces the Second Amendment.”
    In other words, Newsom’s press release is riddled with lies that make it seem like a 28th Amendment would not in any way infringe on the Second Amendment, which is patently false.
    Moore’s proposal includes a total of eight sections’ worth of new restrictions such as mandatory licensing and registration of all guns; requiring proof “for the few who can demonstrate a special need for personal protection”; a new vetting process whereby government authorities are free to anonymously interview anyone a person has ever known, including exes and enemies, before allowing a gun purchase; requiring attendance at annual classes and the taking of written tests to keep one’s firearms legal; a minimum age requirement of 25 with annual licensing renewal mandates; and an approved firearms list that includes bans on semi-automatic rifles along with any weapon that holds more than six “bullets.”
    Moore also wants to ban 3D-printed “plastic” or printed guns, as well as impose new purchasing restrictions on ammunition. He also wants to force authorities to obtain psychic powers by requiring that no weapons of any kind be sold to people “whose sole intention is the premeditated elimination of human life.”
    Moore’s version of the 28th Amendment would also require that police officers receive special scrutiny for “violent or racist behavior,” using Antifa’s “standards” for determining what is “racist.” While officers of the law certainly need to be reined in from committing police abuse, Moore’s proposal, like most leftist proposals, makes it all about skin color and politics.
    “Persons already owning any of the above banned firearms, and who do not fall into the legal groups of restricted firearms owners, will have one month from the ratification of this Amendment to turn in their firearms for destruction by local law enforcement,” reads Section 8 of Moore’s 28th Amendment proposal.
    To be fair, Newsom’s 28th Amendment proposal is not nearly as draconian as Moore’s which technically makes it more dangerous because it has a much greater chance of receiving enough public support to eventually, potentially, get it added to the United States Constitution.
