I will be voting "NO" on a proposed constitutional amendment that would add language recognizing restrictions on our right to bear arms to our Declaration of Rights:
AS PROPOSED by Amendment No. 3 on the November ballot:
Article I, Section 26
(a) Every citizen has a fundamental right to bear arms in defense of himself or herself and the state. Any restriction on this right shall be subject to strict scrutiny.
(b) No citizen shall be compelled by any international treaty or international law to take an action that prohibits, limits, or otherwise interferes with his or her fundamental right to keep and bear arms in defense of himself or herself and the state, if such treaty or law, or its adoption, violates the United States Constitution.
CURRENT LANGUAGE of our Declaration of Rights:
Constitution of Alabama 1901
Article 1 Declaration of Rights.
That the great, general, and essential principles of liberty and free government may be recognized and established, we declare:
Right to bear arms.
That every citizen has a right to bear arms in defense of himself and the state.
Construction of Declaration of Rights.
That this enumeration of certain rights shall not impair or deny others retained by the people; and, to guard against any encroachments on the rights herein retained, we declare that everything in this Declaration of Rights is excepted out of the general powers of government, and shall forever remain inviolate.
You are going to Vote "NO" to that?
