I Hereby Propose that California call for a Constitutional Convention in order to pass this law at earliest opportunity.
(Explanation on the flip)
There are two methods for proposing an amendment to the Constitution. One has been used by every amendment thus far.
The second is at the level of the states, and requires that 2/3rds of the states legislatures call for a constitutional convention.
With the current gridlock in congress, and the failure of our elected representatives to even discuss real solutions, instead falling back on the 2nd amendment as interpreted by Scalia et al, it's time that we as voters actually stand up for what we believe in.
I highly suggest that California be one of the first states to call for this, as we are a state with a vested interest in gun control, seeing as we have been a state that traditionally has had a strong policy on gun ownership.
My cards are on the table. This is what I feel should be done, and I am not going to be ambiguous about it. Arguing the minutiae of gun control laws can be left up to the states, but first and foremost we need to deal with the amendment that prevents that.
