Micheal Moore Proposes '28th Amendment' to 'Repeal and Replace' 2A
Radical filmmaker pushes to scrap Second Amendment rights
Far-left filmmaker Michael Moore is continuing his aggressive push to strip Americans of their constitutional rights by putting forward a proposal to "repeal and replace" the Second Amendment.
On Sunday, Moore proposed a new amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
He argues that the American people should be afforded the right to be kept safe both from gun violence and the fear it could affect their lives.
Moore proposed a 28th Amendment to the Constitution — which he said would repeal and replace the 2nd Amendment.
He laid out a detailed description of what that new amendment would entail.
“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.
Moore suggested that "a mandatory system of firearm registration" that includes limiting licensing only for the purposes of hunting, target shooting, and "the few" who could demonstrate the need for protection.
Other requirements included a stricter background test, an annual written test, a minimum age requirement of 25 years old, and weapon and ammunition regulation.
"Congress shall regulate all ammunition, capacity of ammunition, the storage of guns, gun locks, gun sights, body armor, and the sale and distribution of such items," Moore insisted.
"No weapons of any kind whose sole intention is the premeditated elimination of human life are considered legal.
"Congress may create future restrictions as this amendment specifically does not grant any American the ‘right’ to own any weapon."

THE 28th AMENDMENThttps://t.co/0SRexdqO9b
Moore has frequently attacked the Second Amendment and recently called for efforts to repeal it by Congress.
In June, he repeated his cries to "repeal the Second Amendment," insisting that most people "don’t need a gun."
"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," Moore closed.
"These local authorities may organize a gun buy-back program to assist in this effort."
On Monday, Moore renounced his "full citizenship" privileges following the shooting at a Highland Park Fourth of July parade as well as the overturning of Roe v. Wade by the Supreme Court.
He also demanded the removal of "every single Republican from office in November" and reparations for black Americans in response to police shootings and mass incarceration.
In the aftermath of the Uvalde elementary school shooting, several media outlets began calling for the limiting, or the outright repeal, of the Second Amendment.
In June, liberal radio host Bill Press similarly penned an op-ed for CNN to call for efforts to "just get rid of" the amendment.
Others have insisted that there are no constitutional rights to own a weapon.
