As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths.
–Isaiah 3:12, KJV
Michael Moore is proposing that the US repeal the Second Amendment and replace it with a new amendment. Moore’s proposed amendment would include a provision to make a man get permission from his wife or girlfriend before buying a gun:
As over 90% of gun violence is committed by men, in order for a man to purchase a gun, he must first get a waiver from his current wife, plus his most recent ex-wife, or any woman with whom he is currently in a relationship (if he’s gay, he must get the waiver from his male spouse/partner). This law has greatly reduced most spousal/domestic gun murders in Canada.
CNS News points out that Moore is not entirely accurate in his description of Canada’s law:
An information sheet and firearm license application form posted online by the Canadian Royal Mounted Police suggests that conjugal partners don’t have to sign off on the license; they just must be notified of their partner’s intent to obtain one
CNS News also notes that under Moore’s proposed amendment MGTOW’s would be treated like adults and not need a woman’s permission to buy a gun.
Moore’s plan does not require waivers for single men who are loners and shun relationships who want to buy guns.
As absurd as Moore’s proposal is, it is being presented as a serious solution from the left. The Hill closes Michael Moore proposes ’28th Amendment’ to regulate gun ownership with:
Democratic lawmakers are facing pressure from the left to introduce new anti-gun violence measures after Sunday’s shooting, which was the most deadly in modern U.S. history.
Republicans have rejected the idea that such violence has a legislative solution.
