This is just wrong on so many levels...
The Los Angeles Times has invited its readers to suggest new and "better" wording for the Second Amendment to the US constitution.( I wonder if the elites in LA take the paper?)
It's about the length of a tweet and has been interpreted to give us the right to bear arms. To own and carry a gun. To defend ourselves.But it was written more than 200 years ago. Are the words still relevant in 2017? How would you change the language in your revision? What details would you add to your interpretation?
What do you think? How - if at all - would you reword the Second Amendment? Given its history of widely differing interpretations, I'd simplify it, to remove any possibility of confusion. I'd word it like this:
The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.What say you?
