Newsom proposes amending U.S. Constitution to roll back gun rights


Gov. Gavin Newsom proposed Thursday an amendment to the U.S. Constitution that would dramatically roll back gun rights enshrined in the Second Amendment since the nation’s founding.

“The American people are sick of Congress’ inaction,” Newsom said through his personal Twitter account.

His proposed 28th Amendment to the constitution, he said in a tweet that included a video of him dressed in a blue suit and tie describing his proposal, would enshrine four “widely supported gun safety freedoms — while leaving the 2nd Amendment intact.”

His proposal calls for raising the minimum age to purchase any gun to 21, universal background checks on all gun transfers, a “reasonable” waiting period for gun buyers to pick up their weapon and banning the civilian purchase of “assault weapons.”
