    It seems the drumbeat is on again... well good luck. Lol

    STEP 1: PROPOSING AN AMENDMENT

    Either Congress or the states can propose an amendment to the Constitution.

    • Both houses of Congress must propose the amendment with a two-thirds vote. This is how all current amendments have been offered.
    • Two-thirds of the state legislatures must call on Congress to hold a constitutional convention.
    STEP 2. RATIFYING AN AMENDMENT
    Regardless of how the amendment is proposed, it must be ratified by the States.

    • Three-fourths of the state legislatures must approve of the amendment proposed by Congress, or

    • Three-fourths of the states must approve the amendment via ratifying conventions. This method has only been used once, to repeal Prohibition with the 21st Amendment.

    Every time anyone calls for so called “universal background checks”... its a dog whistle.

    No, not really. You could have universal background checks and not go through the process you listed above. So, they really are not connected at all.

    A bigger concern is universal gun registration. Though it would be a pipe dream as too many people have guns that would never register them. I know I sure would not.

    Nah we ALL know by now calling for outright ban doesn't work. They will call for bans on certain weapons,expanded checks,bans on clip size,tighter registration etc..give an inch they take a mile.

    I'd just settle for a repeal of both the National Firearms Act of 1934 and the Gun Control Act of 1968 . Machine guns and silencers are just too damned expensive these days, thanks to the first one. And I miss having the Post Office deliver inexpensive firearms to me door like they did before the second one.

    I bought two WW2 German Mausers in 1967 for $15 bucks apiece. The Post Office charged me $4 apiece for shipping.

    We already have background checks, everyone that buys a firearm from me has to. Usually it takes less than five minutes(which is way too slow) and they are out the door.

    Private sales are none of the federal governments business...
