Democrat legislators in Hawaii, one of the most gun-restrictive states in the nation, are calling on the United States Congress to modify or repeal the Second Amendment as part of their latest insidious attempt at overriding the God-given, constitutional right of all Americans to bear arms.
Known as Senate Concurrent Resolution (SCR) No. 42, the measure urges Congress “to clarify the constitutional right to bear arms,” calling into question what Hawaii Democrats have dubbed the “individual right theory.”
According to these Hawaii Democrats, our Founding Fathers never actually provisioned for the individual right to bear arms, but rather intended the Second Amendment to cover a “collective” right – meaning the government gets to decide who can own and possess firearms, which in non-revisionist history books is precisely the thing from which our Founders were aiming to escape.
“The sponsors of the resolution suggest the Framers’ use of the term ‘well-regulated militia’ was ‘intended only to restrict the United States Congress from legislating away a state’s right to self-defense,'” write Carey Wedler and Jon Miltimore from the Foundation for Economic Freedom (FEE).

The whole scheme naturally centers around the numerous alleged mass shootings that have taken place in recent years, which Hawaii Democrats are now exploiting in yet another vain Leftist attempt at eliminating the most important right that Americans have in thwarting the totalitarian inclinations of rogue government entities.
And it’s hardly the first time that this threat to our Bill of Rights has emerged out of Hawaii, which back in 2016 became the first state to add gun owners throughout the state to a Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) database known as “Rap Back,” which allows federal authorities to notify local law enforcement whenever a gun owner is arrested.
It’s important to remember that the Supreme Court has already ruled that the right to bear arms is, indeed, and individual constitutional right that has absolutely nothing to do with collectivism. In the landmark District of Columbia v. Heller decision of 2008, the Supreme Court ruled that this individual right interpretation is correct, just as the Founding Fathers intended it to be. This same individual right interpretation was later expanded and made the law of the land in the McDonald v. Chicago decision of 2010.
Even Thomas Jefferson himself, while drafting the Constitution for Virginia back in 1776, clearly wrote that, “No freeman shall ever be debarred the use of arms” – clearly indicating that every individual in America has the right to own and possess firearms, and the government never has the right to infringe upon this right.
Remember this: If the tyrants are ever successful at eliminating the Second Amendment as they so desperately wish to do, they will then very quickly go after all of the other Amendments – not to mention the entirety of the Constitution – seeing as how there will no longer be an armed patriot populace to stop them.
“Mind you, the phrasing is on purpose: they are after all the rights, not just the Second Amendment,” comments Miguel from the Gun Free Zone blog about this very issue.
“But the 2A does get in the way to annul the rest of the rights. It is always hard to fill the boxcars going East when the passengers announce their refusal by volleys of projectiles. Remember the principle: If they hate the Second amendment (sic), there is a good chance they are not fond of the rest of the Bill Of Rights.”
