THE SECOND AMENDMENT

One of the first things I do in the mornings is have a quick flick through the news to keep up to date with what’s going on in the world. Occasionally I will delve a little deeper into other little stories and one that caught my attention today is the unravelling story about Marjorie Taylor Greene, a Congresswoman (who is also head of the House Education and Labor Committee) in the US who…… to put it quite bluntly….. IS OFF HER FUCKING ROCKER!!

Firstly, she is a QAnon follower.
Remember this guy?

Twitter Has Removed More Than 70,000 Accounts Linked To QAnon Conspiracy  Since Capitol Riots

Yeah well, he and other QAnon followers rampaged through Capital Hill because they believed the following……
“QAnon is a far-right conspiracy theory alleging that a secret cabal of Satan-worshipping, cannibalistic pedophiles is running a global child sex-trafficking ring and plotting against former U.S. president Donald Trump, who has been fighting the cabal”.¬†Wikipedia.

ABSOLUTE WACKJOBS!

This bunch of wackjobs formed, unsurprisingly, in 2017. the same year Donald Duck became President. Coincidence?

Anyway, back to Marjorie. To say she is insane is an understatement. You only have to go and take a look at all the videos out there on the internet to realise she is seriously disturbed.
However, BEFORE she was even elected to congress, she was made famous for harassing David Hogg, a survivor of a mass shooting that took place on February 14th 2018 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.
David witnessed 17 fellow students and teachers lose their life while 17 others were injured, by a 19 year old gunman who opened fire with a semi-automatic rifle.
David was on his way to talk to lawmakers about Gun control.

This disgusting person used intimidation and harassment to try and get him to respond and with all due respect to David, he totally ignored her.

This video niggled me the most because she waffled on about her Second Amendment rights.
The Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States, or the right to bear arms as it is more commonly known.

Guns.
I Hate them.

Even here in the UK I know there are occasions when guns are needed and I totally get that.
People who own livestock for example, need to be able to protect their livestock from predators.

However, here in the UK, guns are generally ‘not’ owned by the majority of people.
Police don’t walk around with handguns attached to their belts… they don’t need to.

In fact handguns were banned in 1997 after an AMENDMENT to the Firearms Act.

I have always struggled to see why banning the every day ownership of guns in the US is so difficult.
I agree that livestock owners need to be able to defend their livestock.
I agree that shooting targets can be fun if properly controlled at firing ranges.
I don’t agree with people being able to own guns and keep them in their houses or on their person.

When I see Americans defending their right to bear arms because it’s in their constitution, I roll my eyes.
Seriously?

The definition of the word Amendment is as follows…..
An alteration of or addition to a motion, bill, constitution, etc.
A change made by correction, addition, or deletion.

The key words there are ‘alteration’ ‘change’ and ‘deletion’

By the very word ‘Amendment’, a change has been made to the constitution, 27 of them in fact with the last one being as recent as 1992 I believe.

100 plus years ago, I could totally understand the need for guns in the US, but we live in a totally different society now. Guns are not protecting people any more, they are killing them.

Someone please have the sense to make another Amendment to this outdated Constitution.
Times change.
Laws should be updated regularly to keep them fresh and relevant to the time.

Oh yeah, get this moron removed from the House Education and Labor Committee and Congress ASAP.
She is poison.
