Unhinged Michael Moore Proposes Anti-Gun 28th Amendment

• By Michael Robison

Moore proposed his own 28th Amendment to the Constitution. He said the new amendment would repeal and replace the Second Amendment that guarantees Americans the right of gun ownership. He laid out a detailed description of what that new amendment would entail on his website.

"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," Section 1 of Moore's proposed amendment read.

Section 2 outlined the restrictions that would be imposed for the few situations in which guns could be owned. He noted a national registry and licensing program allowing guns to be used for hunting, target shooting, and most rarely for self-defense. 

The section also outlines an extensive background check, including a mental health check and interviews with partners and exes. It also includes a mandatory one-month waiting period.

Section 3 calls for a written test and a firearm safety course, something Moore says must be updated annually. 

Section 4 raised the minimum purchase age to 25.

Section 5 listed the firearms that would be banned under the proposed amendment.

All automatic and semi-automatic weapons 

Any weapon that can hold more than six bullets or rounds at a time 

All guns made of plastic or any homemade equipment and machinery or a 3D printer
