Alan Keyes Agrees: #RepealThe17th #tcot #tpot #17A #2A

Surveying the constitutional changes adopted, by hook or crook, in the course of the 20th century, it appears as if some hidden hand carefully crafted the precise sequence of events Hamilton describes. The good offices of the state legislatures, as guardians of the sovereignty of the people, were not just corrupted, they were entirely eliminated by the 17th Amendment. Thanks to that change, the influence of elitist corporate money and media power came to dominate in the election of U.S. senators. This moved the U.S. Senate into the orbit of elitist national and international corporate interests, beginning especially with the financial interests that effectively nationalized America’s banks and the control of our national income and capital formation.

Disappointed with Live Video Call on #ArticleV #COS #tcot #2A #RepealThe17th

Just attended a live video call at http://conventionofstates.com

I’m very disappointed that repealing the 17th Amendment does not seem to be a priority with the leaders, even though it is clearly a priority with those volunteers attending the call, based on the number of comments urging repeal of the 17th Amendment (and the +1 votes those comments received).

There seems to be too many goals.  Yes, it helps to have controlling the Supreme Court as an objective, both politically and as a real and necessary goal.  But i do not understand why Michael Farris thinks repealing the 17th is not directly relevant to achieving that objective.

Repealing the 17th should be the major focus of such a convention, and if they have other ideas to check SCOTUS then fine they can add those for discussion.

Interesting trends in concealed carry laws #tcot #2A #CCW #OC

Of Arms and the Law: Interesting trends in concealed carry laws.

From an article in the Idaho Statesman (which cites Clayton Cramer and John Lott).

Between 1986 and the present days:

States prohibiting concealed carry, with no licenses to do so available, shrank from 16 to 0.
States allowing permits on a discretionary “may issue” basis shrank from 25 to 9.
States allowing permits on a “shall issue” basis rose from 8 to 36.
States allowing concealed carry with no permit rose from 1 to 5.

All this over a period when both total homicides and gun homicides have fallen by about half.
