The Bill of Rights can't be altered without an amendment
Wednesday, March 7, 2018
The present assault on the Second Amendment reminds us of the 2013 Western States Sheriff's Rebellion stopping cold President Barack Obama's new 23 executive orders further restricting the rights of gun owners without authorization from Congress. But today Republicans need to be reminded that neither the executive branch, through executive orders, nor the legislative branch, through laws, can constitutionally legislate away an amendment of the Bill of Rights. Therefore, banning AR-15s or bump stocks is unconstitutional. Only a new amendment with the support of three-quarters of the states, as outlined in Article V of the Constitution, can alter an amendment.
