The founders of the US had little knowledge of the Industrial Revolution, and No idea of what technology would be like in this century. So doesn't it follow that their vision, and the reality of today are don't match. Trying to apply the laws of physical presence to the virtual cyber world hasn't really worked. This is just one aspect of why we need to amend. I can't go in detail with only 600 char, but technology has changed even in the last 30 years that have made things really complex. Trying to apply the logic of the founders dn work, and add to that the 340 million people, and 50 states

Again, you think that the Status Quo is working for us?
You think that the constitution works well for 340 million people, 50 states, and 3 branches of gov that can be gridlock is a working constitution?
I agree, it is the people that need to start the process. The voters have not been helpful for a long time, and they seem to be taking the wrong turn.
Just my opinion, but the loyal party voters needs to at least turn a shade of purple :)

It's the best option we have. If you want change protest, vote, submit bills. If you want to rid the congress of corrupt politicians, vote them out of office. Establish a term limitation on the amount of time they can be there.
The founding founders dn have a clue of how we would be today. And we haven't voted intelligently in a 100 yrs. Loyal party voters keep electing the gridlock congress. The SC has become political and ineffective while congress is gridlock
According to this ?, that is your call, and I have mentioned some reasons there as well.
From a European perspective, the right to bear arms is total insanity. Although I’m sure most Americans will totally disagree, and will defend their rights under the Second Amendment to the hilt!
Arthur, the right to self-preservation (including self-defense) is one of the most basic human rights. Currently firearms are the best method of self defense. Protecting this most basic human right is just common sense.
Hi Levi, I know that is how Americans feel, I’ve corresponded with a few on this and appreciate that. However, from a European perspective it’s a belief we don’t hold; so we do find it incomprehensible how anyone would want to live in a gun culture!
