TBKY Urgent Alert: Please Call Today toll-free 1-800-372-7181 and leave a message: "Tell the State House Elections, and Constitutional Amendments Chairman and Republican Members of the Committee to Oppose HJR 81 and HB 282."
This is a very scary example of what we will get with an Article V Constitutional Convention. One of the Big Liberals promoting a Constitutional Convention is former Supreme Court Associate Justice John Paul Stevens. In his book SIX AMENDMENTS: How and Why We Should Change the Constitution (2014), Stevens proposes that the Second Amendment be changed to say “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms when serving in the militia shall not be infringed.” The addition of the five words (when serving in the military) would essentially allow for the criminalization and disarming of law-abiding citizens unless they are serving in the “militia,” by which liberals such as Justice Stevens mean the National Guard rather than the historical definition simply referring to the average citizen. Call your Kentucky State Legislators and tell them NO ARTICLE V CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION. Call 800-372-7181 and leave a message for all State Legislators to oppose HOUSE JOINT RESOLUTION 81 and to oppose House Bill 282. Leave the U.S. Constitution alone.
