Messing About with Article II, Section 6

Filed under: Politics, Self-Defense — Tags: , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 9:00 PM

A few weeks ago, Albuquerque City Councilor Diane Gibson has gotten herself some no-charge campaign advertising, courtesy of the lamestream snoozemedia [1], on account of her calling for a State-level Constitutional Amendment to change Article II, Section 6 of the Constitution of the State of New Mexico from its current text:

No law shall abridge the right of the citizen to keep and bear arms for security and defense, for lawful hunting and recreational use and for other lawful purposes, but nothing herein shall be held to permit the carrying of concealed weapons. No municipality or county shall regulate, in any way, an incident of the right to keep and bear arms.

— to something that gives municipal and county governments more leeway to enact victim disarmament statutes:

No law shall abridge the right of the citizen to keep and bear arms for security and defense, for lawful hunting and recreational use and for other lawful purposes, but nothing herein shall be held to permit the carrying of concealed weapons.

Considering that the sorts of victim disarmament statutes desired by Gibson and her hoplophobe cronies only disarm those who need to own and carry weapons the most — the five-foot, hundred-pound woman who’s being stalked by her crazed six-foot, two-hundred-pound ex-boyfriend — and don’t actually disarm the criminal and terrorist types one bit, those of us who support and exercise the individual, civil, Constitutional, human right to own and carry weapons for “…. for security and defense, for lawful hunting and recreational use and for other lawful purposes ….” would prefer that IF Article II, Section 6 must be amended, that it should read like this afterwards:

No law shall abridge the right of the citizen to keep and bear arms for security and defense, for lawful hunting and recreational use and for other lawful purposes. No municipality or county shall regulate, in any way, an incident of the right to keep and bear arms.
