The Arms of Everest

I just received a fabulous email from a political ally which said:

"Back in 1991, retired Supreme Court Chief Justice Warren Burger said in a television interview that the Second Amendment "has been the subject of one of the greatest pieces of fraud, I repeat the word 'fraud,' on the American public by special interest groups that I have ever seen in my lifetime." in his new book, "Six Amendments: How and Why We Should Change the Constitution," former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens called for the addition of five words to the Second Amendment to clarify its original intent — "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."

Those five words could have made all the difference between the life and death of thousands for which the arms of Everest are responsible. To amend the Constitution and most of all the killing machine's "glorious" Second Amendment is I know, a tall order.

The Second Amendment SHOULD have read as the quote states when our Founders convened to hone the Constitution itself but our Founders never envisioned a US as big as it is AND never envisioned a population so huge. Most importantly they never knew an AK47 nor did they know of the vicious NRA and a man as loathsome and mean as Wayne LaPierre who is its head armed with hordes of supporters and the millions of bucks they bring.

We must work for change one day at a time!

ELECT DEMOCRATS IN EVERY STATE, IN EVERY CITY AND IN EVERY TOWN. MOST ESPECIALLY ELECT DEMOCRATS TO THE CONGRESS AND OF COURSE THE PRESIDENCY. SEND HILLARY YOUR SUPPORT!
