My proposal to repeal and replace the 2nd Amendment
Michael did the draft so our elected officials don’t have to strain themselves to do the necessary thinking part. To the others who commented: If we are fans of MM, let us not nitpick the details. The essence is the goal of common sense gun management, aka, allowing Americans live without fear.
Remove (a) licensed hunters of game; and I’ll vote for it. We don’t need to abuse and shoot wildlife but need to protect it.

“There will be a waiting period of one month to complete the full background check.”
The waiting period should be a minimum of one month and up to six months.
Question our military industrial complex about which Eisenhower warned us
but we have failed to address.
I love it. And I know it doesn't have a chance in hell of getting anywhere. :(
Michael, this is the most comprehensive, logical, and important proposal to address the epidemic of gun violence in this country I have seen or heard of. No one else has the insight or motivation to put forth a realistic response to this crisis. Other countries have accomplished more safe living conditions for their citizens; the US can do this, too. I support your efforts and pledge to help work for the passage of this amendment in any way I can--LTEs, marches, sharing information...let me know, please. And thank you for always working for the health of this country. Love you, Man.
I love it.
Would it be possible to include taxation on bullets to pay for any ensuing carnage?
Wholehearted agreement with section 1. Well thought out details. Thank you!
Precise and well reasoned Michael. You have a very unique set of talents -- passion with practicality.
As usual, Michael Moore has exactly the right idea. Needs a little work, but that's what the rest of us human beings are for. Saving humanity is not a one-person job. THIS IS DEFINITELY THE RIGHT IDEA!
Noooo. The ERA IS THE 28th Amendment. You can propose a 29th Amendment about gun violence. Please read 6/17/22 letter to the White House counsel here. BIDEN NEEDS TO PUBLISH THE ERA. It is the 28th Amendment regardless of publishing, SCOTUS knows this and has failed their jobs and the American people by ignoring the ERA.
The 28th Amendment would effectively end the flood of gun violence that has afflicted America since its inception.
Unfortunately, its passage is an impossibility in a country not based on democratic principles. A country ruled by a minority of capitalists, gun nuts and politicians with a limitless tolerance for the deaths of innocents will ensure our status quo is maintained.
God help America.
So sensible! It breaks my heart knowing this will not fly!😢
Sorry, but it will never get passed if hunters are also removed. You can't have everything. It will never get passed anyway, but it's a great idea, Michael!
Good idea, only this is going too far and will also go against the grains of those politically on the right side of history on most all other progressive issues. Gun ownership is something too traditional and engrained into the American psyche and will be one of the last things to be tolerated to be taken away for good. Fight for substantial background checks, mental health checks, certain associations e. g. With extremist groups, age limits for gun ownership, and keep military style weapons out of the hands of civilians. This would really go a long way.
The only way we have a chance in hell of achieving forward movement in gun control is by uniting ALL gun control groups into a single powerful organization. Over the decades (I'm really old) when I realized giving money to each new group for each new shooting was only making us weaker I stopped giving money. It was only encouraging division. If we had a single functioning gun control organization we could raise much more money and way out power the NRA. We've divided ourselves so now we are ruled by gun maniacs. Come on liberals, get it together!!
