Our RIGHTS and FREEDOMS
PART. I. RIGHTS and RESPONSIBILITIES
Section. 1. Requires background checks for mental instability, drug addiction, violent offenders, no-fly list:
Armed or violent felons, drug addicts, mentally unstable, and those on “no-fly” lists cannot buy or own guns. No guns allowed where mentally unstable people reside.
… prohibits fully automatic and “bump” stocks:
“Bump Stocks”, which enable semi-automatic guns to have “fully automatic” properties, and the fully automatic weapons used by our military, will both be prohibited.
… test for marksmanship and safety within 30 days:
Not currently required, new stringent classes, live shooting and tests will ensure safety, accuracy, awareness.
… “carry” permits require live-shooting test under stress:
People who fold under pressure, or get reckless under pressure, or whose training goes out the window under pressure will NOT be allowed to carry guns in public.
… protects the right to bear arms:
The right to bear arms will continue to be protected including the assault rifles, high capacity magazines, and green tip bullets necessary for the adequate defense of democracy, property, (and water and food during upcoming shortages). This foundationally guaranteed check and balance deterrent to criminals, bad cops and military coups is worthless if Citizens are underpowered.
PART. II. PUBLIC SCHOOLS
Section. 2. Relationship class:
Another way The Valentine Constitution addresses bullying and hate crimes is a daily relationship class which will allow K-12 students to share their life stories and find sympathy, advice and programs to solve their personal problems. A modicum of empathy by others would have prevented most spree killings by identifying mentally unstable spree killers and/or alleviating the bitterness before it developed into animosity and violence. Available to adults at night and on weekends, relationship class will defuse animosities and engender happier communities.
Anti-gun folks should take this deal because 1) it’s the best they’ll get, and why 2) candidates, nonprofits and protests have all failed to pass restrictions, 3) gun rights are foundationally and constitutionally guaranteed, 4) most Americans support this check on government and criminal power, 5) and won’t give up their guns without a civil war. Pro-gun folks stop getting hassled. Anti-gun folks get restrictions like new stringent required classes and tests which magnify gun safety. All the pro-gun and anti-gun lobbying money will instead go into gun safety, awareness, and spree-killer prevention programs like adult relationship classes and others to identify mentally unstable people before they turn to guns or knives or cars or bombs.
SPEAK POWER to POWER
Keeping 90% of our current Constitution, foundations and rights intact, The Valentine Constitution modernizes our unaccountable government to assist rather than restrict citizens.
Women, LGBTs, blacks, anti-tax and anti-deficit groups, environmentalists, 80% of America will get what they want most.
Candidates, nonprofits, foundations, protests and fundraisers have failed for decades to fulfill their missions. If they were going to solve our problems, they would have by now. How much longer will you hope that government or Wall Street or scientists solve your problems when they haven’t yet?
Even if your wish list of candidates were elected, what legislation would they pass? They’re too polarized and stalemated, between and within parties, to pass all the legislation needed to solve our many problems, and how long would it take them? It took Valentine 12,000 hours over 45 years! Unless we dictate play, our problems will never be solved.
Left, right and center voters, nonprofits, causes and celebrities can combine their considerable power to get the word out to dictate to candidates to vote FOR RATIFICATION or not be (re)elected.
The hard work’s been done. All you have to do is say you want it to trigger positive polling and they’ll ratify it to get your vote, then we can finally fix everything.
