The problem I have with the idea of revising or changing the U.S. constitution is primarily that no one can seem to bring any relevant information to the table about what it is specifically that they want to change. Words like "Archaic" and "Outdated" have been used alongside words like "Ancient". What is it specifically that needs to be thrown out? What specifically needs to be added? Most references that I've seen that contain any type of specifics as to the suggestion of change are concerning the "Right to Keep and Bear Arms". Additionally these suggestions for change also mostly include the demand that the 2nd Amendment was somehow referring to the right to have hunting weapons or the right to have a self-defense weapon and this ideology is so far off in left field that it's shameful to listen to or read. Regarding the right to keep and bear arms, this "Right" was established as a preventative measure to keep the U.S. Government from becoming tyrannical or oppressive...that's it. Our Forefathers saw exactly what happens when there is no way to keep the Government in check and therefor created a system that would prevent their new Country from ever having the same issue. Simply put, if the Government has Assault Rifles...then we need them to. If the Government has fully-automatic weapons...then we need them too. Our Forefathers left the burden of keeping the Government in check on the shoulders of the people...should we then expect the people to fight back against the Government with pistols, shotguns and hunting rifles when they have Military grade weapons?
I wouldn't mind seeing an amendment requiring Congress to have a balanced budget, or at the very least, a budget.
