The Debate Over Amendments to the Constitution

Federalists greatly feared such a convention. Report this Argument Con You have already made the point that in the U. Article Five of the United States Constitution details the two-step process for amending the nation's frame of government. Although Federalist Madison was originally a skeptic about needing a Bill of Rights, like Randolph, Mason and Gerry he came to believe that the inclusion of personal rights was imperative to be added to the United States Constitution.

To quote you "Without, the 2nd amendment, the government could do anything they wanted, and their citizens could do nothing to stop them," You make it sound like the people of this country can do no wrong but we are as inherently bad and flawed as the people in government.

Four of the next five states to ratify, including New HampshireVirginiaand New Yorkincluded similar language in their ratification instruments.

The Articles of Confederation, sent to the state legislatures for their unanimous approval in Novemberprovided that any amendments had to be approved by Congress and then ratified by all of the state legislatures. Scholars are split on all those issues. They left the issue of individual rights without adding it to the Constitution during that meeting.

Now, do not get me wrong, guns are sad things…They are killing machines…in reality it would be better off if they did not exist in the first place…But since they DO exist, and since the government will have guns whether we like it or not…we might as well have guns as well.

Antifederalists wanted the state conventions to consider amendments to the Constitution that would be submitted to the Confederation Congress, which would call a new general convention before the Constitution was put into effect.

History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing" -Adolf Hitler An insane lunatic, a complete raving hateful, lunatic, an evil genius, who was well aware of the people's ability to riot, when owning fire-arms, and worked against it, being the authoritarian, Nazi ruler that he was.

Having this, we keep our government in check. Federalist leaders ingeniously met the challenge. Do you see now, there have been many instances "in the course of human events" in which it has served the people very well to have fire-arms in revolting against the government.

Let them take arms. They supported the Constitution, and attempted to convince the States to ratify the document. Freedom of expression allows open discussion and debate on public issues.

Just look at the death and destruction that guns cause and I don't mean a gun belonging to a corrupt member of the army or some CIA operative, I am referring to guns owned by average U.

If [1], then you have oligarchy and tyranny. But since self-government is strained if not impossible over larger areas, then The Federalist becomes a manifesto for Empire. But the individual-rights interpretation, as Siegel observed, prevailed not only in the courts but also in public opinion.

In other words, if the government is the ONLY one to own guns, than they are the only ones with power, contrary to the concept of democracy. So, in conclusion, owning fire arms is very necessary to the securing of liberty to each and every individual in the US.
