Luckily, it would be hard for them to do that.

Quote:
1. Propose An Amendment
Either Congress or the States can propose an amendment ot 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.

2. Ratify An Admendment
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 (21st Amendment).

Is there a timeline for ratification? The US Supreme Court has held that ratification must happen within "some reasonable time after the proposal." Since the 18th Amendment, Congress has set a term of seven years for ratification.

Yet, they will still railroad us with gun legislation in a week and a half. Sometimes living in a representative republic where the people are willingly being ignored and all for the "greater good" of Mr. and Mrs. Ignorant Average America having to sleep better at night really sucks.

Should KFC biscuits still be pretty fresh more than 24-hours later being left out in just their closed box? The temperature in here stays between the upper 50's and low 60's, but still, I don't know if I should be amazed or sickened.

Well, with Twinkies (Hostess Breads) having gone out of business*, we'll need something other than cockroaches and Col. Sanders was, well, an officer.

*Can you believe that union? The cakes had to be delivered, even to the same places, in separate trucks from the breads!? Sick bastards!

Now the trigger bar hangs as limp as a boiled spaghetti noodle. The bar spring is supposed to press the bar upwards.

And now I'm smoking a cigar. And drinking a beer.
Can't you just take the gun apart again and put it back together right?

Easier said than done. Apparently the trigger is attached permanently. As is the trigger bar. Neither of these come out, and only have a limited range of motion. Cinder thinks she can poke the spring back into place with a pick.
