Firearms Restoration Act
June 01, 2000
(Updated February 2001)
All laws, regulations and acts which in any way restrict, regulate, permit or license the ownership or sale of personal firearms to legal, lawful citizens of any of the several states or territiories comprising the united States are hereby revoked and nullified.
- For the purposes of this act, personal firearms shall be defined as any firearm that can be reasonably carried and operated by a single individual, irrespective of magazine capacity, firing rate, "look", "feel", cost, bayonette lug, folding stock, pistol grip, barrel length or any other operational or appearance characteristic.
- For the purposes of this act, lawful citizen shall be defined as any citizen of any of the several states or territiories comprising the united States who is of legal age to vote and is not under any restriction as a result of any unfulfilled criminal conviction.
- For the purposes of this act, any citizen who has been sentenced to a criminal conviction that has fulfilled the requirements of that conviction (including all incarceration, probation and any other supervision required by the conviction), shall have their full 2nd amendment rights under this act restored. Existing restrictions or prohibitions on those citizens' 2nd amendment rights, who have prior convictions which they have fulfiiled are, in accordance with this section of this act, revoked and nullified.
- The supremacy clause of the Constitution of the united States shall be in full force and effect in relation to this act restoring the right to keep and bear arms throughout the several states or territiories comprising the united States.
No license, permit, waiting period, background check or other hinderance, restriction, or infringement shall be applied to any lawful citizen carrying a personal firearm on their person in any public place, or on, or in, their own property.
Any law abiding citizen in any of the several states or territiories has the right to keep and bear arms in their own, their community's, their state's or their nation's defense and for any other sporting, hunting or other legal purpose. This right shall no longer be infringed for any lawful citizen of the nation. The only law applicable to the keeping and bearing of personal firearms shall, from henceforth and forever, be the 2nd amendment to the Constitution of the united States.
- The 2nd amendment to the Constitution of the united States reads as follows: "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed."
NOTE: Regarding Section 1.3 of this proposed act : If we are willing to restore the liberty of an individual who has committed a crime, then we must also restore their ability to defend that liberty. Otherwise, their liberty is an illusion, as it would be with us should we ever lose the right to defend our liberty. If we do not feel an individual should have the ability to defend their liberty, that they "have not paid sufficently", or are "too dangerous", then they are not ready to be released into society.
