Governor Gavin Newsom (D) is proposing a 28th Amendment to the to take away .

On Thursday, the Democrat governor announced the proposed 28th Amendment that would implement “commonsense” gun safety measures he claims have widespread bipartisan support.

“Our ability to make a more perfect union is literally written into the Constitution,” Newsom said Thursday. “So today, I'm proposing the 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution to do just that. The 28th Amendment will enshrine in the Constitution commonsense gun safety measures that Democrats, Republicans, Independents, and gun owners overwhelmingly support – while leaving the unchanged and respecting America's gun-owning tradition.”

The Democrat governor's proposed rule would not abolish the Second Amendment, which establishes a right to bear for personal self-defense.

However, the 28th Amendment would raise the federal minimum age to purchase a firearm from 18 to 21; mandate universal background checks to purchase firearms; institute a waiting period for all gun purchases; and ban “assault weapons.”
