Our RIGHTS and FREEDOMS
PART. I. RIGHTS and RESPONSIBILITIES
Section. 1. Requires background checks for mental instability, drug addiction, violent offenders, no-fly listers:
Armed or violent felons, drug addicts, mentally unstable, and those on “no-fly” lists cannot buy or own guns.
… prohibits “bump” stocks:
“Bump Stocks”, which enable semi-automatic guns to have “fully automatic” properties, will be prohibited.
… test for marksmanship and safety within 30 days:
Not currently required, safety and marksmanship tests will ensure all gun purchasers can safely handle their guns, and hit what they aim at.
… “carry” permits require test under stress:
Florida 45 minute “carry permit” has not live safety handling, shooting or marksmanship. Texas’ is 8 hours of school and range safety, handling, marksmanship instruction and testing. People who fold or get reckless or forget training under pressure will NOT be allowed to carry guns.
… 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 check and balance on criminals, bad cops, private security forces and military coups is worthless if Citizens are underpowered.
PART. II. PUBLIC SCHOOLS
Section. 2. Relationship class:
Daily relationship class prevents spree killings by exposing animosity and eradicating bullying before they manifest violence or reprisals. P-12 students will 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. Available to adults at night and on weekends, relationship class will defuse bitterness and engender happier communities.
… 1 month of military boot camp during high school:
Most high school students will attend military boot camp for one month to learn discipline, responsibility, team work, maturity, firearm safety and marksmanship, and emergency protocols to execute their role in any given emergency and crisis situation as outlined in other provisions.
Gun owners would agree to this deal, and anti-gun folks should take it because: 1) most Americans support this check on government and criminal power, which is why 2) candidates, nonprofits and protests have all failed to pass restrictions, because 3) gun rights are foundationally and constitutionally guaranteed, and 4) won’t be given up without a civil war. Pro-gun folks stop having their check on power challenged. Anti-gun folks get their restrictions, teach prevention in relationship class, and team up with ATF, RSOs and range rats to ensure safety and handling.
SPEAK POWER to POWER
Nonprofits, protests, parties, candidates, Presidents with 2 house majorities, none have solved our persistent problems. Instead, polarized sides concern themselves and us in the petty details of their competing investigations. Valentine puts the solutions we need into written legislation we can demand by reserving our votes for candidates who support ratification.
Women and LGBTs want equal rights and pay. Parents want schools that develop children’s gifts into profitable skills. Un(der)employed adults want similar free after school classes. Workers prefer a $20 minimum wage to welfare. Blacks want a fair policing and court system. Fiscal conservatives want accountable, deficit free government and a single 5% tax. Environmentalists, fishermen, etc want sustainable energy, farming, fishing and forestry practices. Celebrities want an end to the paparazzi; and gun owners would agree to background checks. Our current Constitution fails on these issues. This constitution includes them all, and our foundations and rights.
With inclusive legislation to team up behind, this coalition of left and right voters is powerful enough to dictate the outcome of any election. Add sports, music and movie celebrities, and nonprofits dedicated to these provisions, and this constitution will be easily ratified. Polling will force candidates to vote FOR RATIFICATION or not be (re)elected. Recommend ratification, in person, on social media, post a selfie or selfeo saying “Ratify The Valentine Constitution”, join one of our Facebook groups …
