TBKY Urgent Alert: Please Call Today toll-free 1-800-372-7181 and leave a message: “Tell the State House Elections, and Constitutional Amendments Chairman and Republican Members of the Committee to Oppose HJR 81 and HB 282.”

This is a very scary example of what we will get with an Article V Constitutional Convention. One of the Big Liberals promoting a Constitutional Convention is former Supreme Court Associate Justice John Paul Stevens. In his book SIX AMENDMENTS: How and Why We Should Change the Constitution (2014), Stevens proposes that the Second Amendment be changed to say “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms when serving in the militia shall not be infringed.” The addition of the five words (when serving in the military) would essentially allow for the criminalization and disarming of law-abiding citizens unless they are serving in the “militia,” by which liberals such as Justice Stevens mean the National Guard rather than the historical definition simply referring to the average citizen. Call your Kentucky State Legislators and tell them NO ARTICLE V CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION. Call 800-372-7181 and leave a message for all State Legislators to oppose HOUSE JOINT RESOLUTION 81 and to oppose House Bill 282. Leave the U.S. Constitution alone.

HJR 81 is one of the worst bills of the session. This is a priority bill for TBKY to oppose. We do not need socialists, liberals, so- called progressives, and anti second amendment delegates messing with the Bill of Rights. or entire United States Constitution. Citizens are kidding themselves if they truly believe delegates will be appointed/selected that promote liberty, freedom,or true reform. We sight the State House Leadership sexual harassment scandal as another concrete reason to oppose this piece of legislation.

HJR 81: Apply to Congress under the provisions of Article V of the Constitution of the United States for the calling of a convention of the states limited to proposing amendments to the Constitution of the United States that impose fiscal restraint on the federal government, that limit the powers and jurisdiction of the federal government, and that limit the terms of office for its officials and for members of Congress; to state that the application be aggregated with the applications of other states limited for the purposes identified in the applications; state that the application be a continuing application until a convention is called or until the application is withdrawn by the Kentucky General Assembly.
