HI Resolution In US Congress: Repeal 2nd Amendment Or Make Right To Bear Arms 'Collective' Not Individual

Totalitarianism means absolute total control over the populations. Disarming the public is necessary to achieve the goal. Made absolutely defenseless, subjects of the would-be ruling-class. There is no plan 'b'. The next step has now been taken. Done so by HI - first state in the nation. This action is a resolution, put forth here as a proposal. It may go no further than this now, but nonetheless bringing it to this point clearly represents an avowal of the end-goal. Note the wording: repeal Second Amendment outright or amend to say 'right to bear arms' not individual but collective:
Hawaiian Lawmakers Introduce Resolution Calling For 2A Repeal


Five HI state senators (the Hawaii 5-NW-O Stanley Chang, Karl Rhoads, Rosalyn Baker, Dru Mamo Kanuha, Laura Thielen) introduced the resolution - Senate Concurrent Resolution SCR 42 [full text in scroll window below - source]:

  • Urging the United states congress to propose and ADOPT a proposed amendment to the United States Constitution pursuant to Article V of the United States Constitution to clarify the constitutional right to bear Arms.
  • WHEREAS, the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution reads: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”; and
  • WHEREAS, this language has created considerable debate regarding the constitutional provision’s intended scope; and
  • WHEREAS, some believe that this constitutional provision creates an individual constitutional right for citizens of the United States; and
  • WHEREAS, under this “individual right theory”, the United States Constitution restricts legislative bodies from prohibiting firearm possession, or at the very least, the Second Amendment renders prohibitory and restrictive regulation presumptively unconstitutional; and
  • WHEREAS, however, others contend that the prefatory language of “a well regulated militia” indicates that the framers of the United States Constitution intended only to restrict the United States Congress from legislating away a state’s right to self-defense; and
  • WHEREAS, under this “collective rights theory”, the Second Amendment asserts that United States citizens do not have an individual right to possess guns and that local, state, and federal legislative bodies possess the authority to regulate firearms without implicating a constitutional right; and
  • WHEREAS, these two interpretations of the Second Amendment have been considered and adopted by the United States Supreme Court; and
  • WHEREAS, in 1939, the United States Supreme Court adopted a collective rights approach under United States v. Miller, 307 U.S. 174 (1939) by determining that the United States Congress could regulate a sawed-off shotgun that had moved in interstate commerce under the National Firearms Act of 1934; and
  • WHEREAS, the Miller Court determined the evidence did not suggest that the shotgun had a reasonable relationship to the preservation or efficiency of a well-regulated militia; and
  • WHEREAS, the Court further held that the framers of the United States Constitution included the Second Amendment to ensure the effectiveness of the military; and
  • WHEREAS, the precedent established under United States v. Miller stood for nearly seventy years until the United States Supreme Court revisited the issue in 2008 under District of Columbia v. Heller, 554 U.S. 570 (2008); and
  • WHEREAS, the plaintiff in District of Columbia v. Heller challenged the constitutionality of the District of Columbia handgun ban, which is a statute that stood for thirty-two years; and
  • WHEREAS, the Heller Court held that the Second Amendment established an individual right for United States citizens to possess firearms and struck down the District of Columbia handgun ban as a violation of that right; and
  • WHEREAS, the majority in Heller carved out Miller as an exception to the general rule that United States citizens may possess firearms by claiming that law abiding citizens cannot use sawed-off shotguns for any law abiding purpose; and
  • WHEREAS, thus, the United States Supreme Court has revitalized the discussion of whether the Second Amendment is a collective or individual constitutional right; and
  • WHEREAS, in light of the numerous tragic mass shootings at schools, work places, and public events, this body believes that it is necessary to repeal or amend the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution; now, therefore,
  • BE IT RESOLVED by the Senate of the Thirtieth Legislature of the State of Hawaii, Regular Session of 2019, the House of Representatives concurring, that the United States Congress is urged to propose and adopt a proposed amendment to the United States Constitution pursuant to article V of the United States Constitution to clarify the constitutional right to bear arms; and
  • BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the United States Congress is requested to consider and discuss whether the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution should be repealed or amended to clarify that the right to bear arms is a collective, rather than individual, constitutional right; and
  • BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that certified copies of this Concurrent Resolution be transmitted to the President Pro Tempore of the United States Senate, Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, Members of the Hawaii congressional delegation, and the Governor.

March 2019 - change constitution to get the guns. They have no plan 'b'.

[note: author of above article 1st screenshot is from suggests that such action as proposed would bring strong resistance, possibly leading to "civil war". Mental note on that suggested.]

Rev. 18:4
Proverbs 21:31 'The horse is prepared against the day of battle: but safety is of the LORD'

Wine and Roses

An Original Work / March 10, 2019

Days of Wine and Roses,
Watching all the poses.
Underneath our noses,
Nothing left supposes.

Nothing left for guessing.
They are now undressing.
Rid of all the besting,
Now their sins are nesting.

Talk of tribulation
Coming to our nation.
No more on vacation;
Only devastation.

Breaking through our borders,
All of them are hoarders
Coming to our quarters.
They are now our boarders.

Beastly now invasion,
We can now envision.
They are on a mission,
Causing us division.

Families divided.
Marriage is derided.
Couples not united.
Children are collided.

Foreigners not of them.
Sharers of our anthem.
Sayers, they are, of Him,
But the fruit not in them.
