Maybe it is time to propose a new Amendment to clarify and modernize the “right to bare arms” in the Second Amendment. I propose the following:

Proposal of a 28th Amendment to the Bill of Rights of the Constitution of the United States: In respect of the Second Amendment and to clarify and modernize its intent; Congress nor any state in its union; that does not have legal evidence of an unlawful violent crime, tendency or intent; shall deny a citizen of voting age; after responsible verification and due process; the right to own or use a weapon of less than mass destruction for the purpose of protecting ones person, family, community and property.

The Civil Code definition of “weapons of mass destruction” can be found in 50 USC § 2302 – Definitions “(1) The term “weapon of mass destruction” means any weapon or device that is intended, or has the capability, to cause death or serious bodily injury to a significant number of people through the release, dissemination, or impact of— (A) toxic or poisonous chemicals or their precursors; (B) a disease organism; or (C) radiation or radioactivity.”

To make the amendment effective, this definition may need to be redefined to include “any weapon that can kill and bring significant harm to a large number of humans in a short amount of time.” With specific definitions of “large number of humans” and “short amount of time” set by congress.

David Barton: People Are On Welfare Because They Don’t Read The Bible

This comment is pending approval and won’t be displayed until it is approved.

Let me do some reading. I don’t want to go on welfare:

Exodus 22.25: If you lend money to my people, to the poor among you, you shall not deal with them as a creditor; you shall not exact interest from them.

Deuteronomy 15.11: Since there will never cease to be some in need on the earth, I therefore command you, ‘Open your hand to the poor and needy neighbour in your land.’

Psalm 10.2: In arrogance the wicked persecute the poor— let them be caught in the schemes they have devised.

Psalm 72.4: May he defend the cause of the poor of the people, give deliverance to the needy, and crush the oppressor.

Proverbs 19.22: What is desirable in a person is loyalty, and it is better to be poor than a liar.

Proverbs 21.13: If you close your ear to the cry of the poor, you will cry out and not be heard.

Matthew 19.21: Jesus said to him, ‘If you wish to be perfect, go, sell your possessions, and give the money* to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; then come, follow me.’

Revelation 3.17: For you say, “I am rich, I have prospered, and I need nothing.” You do not realize that you are wretched, pitiable, poor, blind, and naked.

And this is just a few examples. I don’t want to be Barton when he sees Jesus. Judgement will be his fate.

Defense Of Marriage Act Ruled Unconstitutional By Another Federal Judge

I always thought you can argue that it is “gender” discrimination. Its because I am a man I can not marry a man. Or if I am a woman I can not mary a woman. I believe it is that simple an argument. Don’t have to fight the gay rights discrimination with anymore complexity.

Bleeding Cash Conservatives Wasting Money To Punish Vulnerable Americans

So much money wasted. So many go hungry. What would Jesus do? Feed the poor with all that money. Do the extreme right understand that? They preach that the world is unGodly, yet they are so greedy. The BIG LIE is so powerful, because they are starting to believe it themselves.

Jon Stewart Criticizes Bloomberg’s New York Soda Ban (VIDEO)

Love THE DAILY SHOW. As a NYC resident, I think they should do what they did with the calories on menus. Its very reviling seeing the true calories of your value deal. Banning may go too far. The only reason I buy a 20 oz soda at the c-store is because I can put a lid on it. The sizes below 20 oz only come in cans. Maybe forcing them to offer a 12 or 16 oz bottle would go far.
