Chicago Suburb Votes To Repeal Second Amendment

posted on November 16, 2016

Chicago suburb Oak Park had an extra question on last Tuesday’s ballot, and many of the residents there answered it in the wrong way.

The ballot question asked: “Shall the Constitution of the United States be amended as follows? The second article of amendment to the Constitution of the United States is repealed. The United States Congress shall regulate the licensing and use of arms.” About 65 percent voted “yes.”

“I’m very satisfied, and I will take it to the next level,” said University of Illinois at Chicago Professor Piergiorgio Uslenghi, who proposed the referendum. “We have to keep fighting for this. The business of having a loaded gun in your pocket has to stop.”

Fortunately for America’s law-abiding gun owners, just because mouthy, elitist gun haters despise the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms doesn’t mean they can repeal it with a single vote at the local level.
