The Armed Citizenry Amendment

The intent of an armed citizenry and of the right of the people to keep and bear arms is not sufficiently clear and protected in the Second Amendment, and thus a deeply entrenched culture has evolved where the government feels it has the right to disarm us, spy on us, indefinitely detain us, and even assassinate us. As a proportionate solution to such extreme and such deeply entrenched culture, and as a solution to the lack of clarity and protection in the Second Amendment, I therefore propose a new Freedom Amendment:

The Armed Citizenry Amendment

The right of the states and of the people to form militias shall not be infringed.

The right of the people to keep and bear any individual arms, such as those borne by any individual serving any branch of the government authorized in this Constitution, shall not be infringed.

The combined number of armed persons serving any branch of the government authorized in this Constitution shall never exceed one tenth of one percent of the people.

The government authorized in this Constitution shall never declare martial law. The states shall never declare martial law.

Persons serving any branch of government authorized in this Constitution shall never fire on the states or the people. Given any individual who, while serving any branch of the government authorized in this Constitution, has fired upon the states or the people, the right of the states and of the people to terminate the life of that individual and the life of the individual who gave him that order, shall not be infringed.

In a nutshell, the federal government might still develop and purchase military technology, but the actual defender of the states and the people, would be the states and the people – not the federal government.
