You know what phrase I’m real tired of?
“It’s our constitutional right to bear arms…you can’t take that away from us!”
You know what? We can.
Just because something is constitutional, doesn’t mean that it’s a good thing. Take prohibition. The 18th Amendment made it illegal to produce, transport, or sell alcohol. For thirteen years, according to to amended constitution, alcohol was a substance that should be prohibited at all costs.
…and you know what happened?
Thirteen years later, we decided that it was a bad amendment and we repealed it with the 21st amendment.
When the constitution ceases to be beneficial to the people of the United States of America, then it’s time for a change.
…and every part of the constitution is up for change.
