Liberal activist entertainer Michael Moore has posted a proposed constitutional amendment to replace the Second Amendment which discriminates against men – whether they’re gay, married or single.
Wednesday, on his Facebook page, Moore introduced his proposed amendment to repeal and replace “the ancient and outdated 2nd Amendment”:
“I, Michael Moore, along with all who support an end to this epidemic of gun violence, propose a new Amendment to our Constitution that repeals the ancient and outdated 2nd Amendment (which was written before bullets and revolvers were even invented), and replaces it with a new 28th Amendment that guarantees States can have State militias (a.k.a. State National Guards which are made up of citizen-soldiers who are called upon in times of natural disasters or other State emergencies), allows individuals to use guns for sport and gathering food, and guarantees everyone the right to be free of, and protected from, gun violence (i.e., the public’s safety comes ahead of an individual’s right to own and fire a gun).”
The first element of Moore’s gun control plan requires males to get permission from their wives - and both their current wives and ex-wives, if they’re divorced – “or any woman” they’re in relationships with, in order to purchase a gun.
If the male is gay, he must get permission from his partner – even though that partner is male:
• As over 90% of gun violence is committed by men, in order for a man to purchase a gun, he must first get a waiver from his current wife, plus his most recent ex-wife, or any woman with whom he is currently in a relationship (if he’s gay, he must get the waiver from his male spouse/partner). This law has greatly reduced most spousal/domestic gun murders in Canada.
Moore's plan does not require waivers for single men who are loners and shun relationships who want to buy guns.
An information sheet and firearm license application form posted online by the Canadian Royal Mounted Police suggests that conjugal partners don’t have to sign off on the license; they just must be notified of their partner’s intent to obtain one:
Boxes 18 and 19
The signatures of your current or former conjugal partners is not legally required. However, if their signatures is not provided, the Chief Firearms Officer has a duty to notify them of your application for a firearms licence.
