Mark Levin doesn’t have any patience for groups that use baseless scare tactics to discourage Americans from supporting the only constitutional means of limiting the power of the federal government.
In the video below, he takes on the idea that Article V might be a threat to the Second Amendment.
In the above clip, Levin angrily corrects a caller who calls an Article V Convention of States a “Constitutional Convention.” The caller says he gets warnings from other conservative groups saying that the Article V convention might be out of control.
In truth, Article V includes numerous safeguards that protect the U.S. Constitution and ensure that only widely approved amendments are adopted. The strongest safeguard? Any amendment proposed by the Convention goes through the exact same ratification process as amendments proposed by Congress. It must be approved by 38 states. That means if only 13 states vote no, the answer is no. It doesn’t get much safer than that.Levin, in his rant, yells at the caller, who can’t get a word in edge-wise. He says, “I wouldn’t be talking about this if the government wasn’t out of control.” He also added, “The Threat to the Second Amendment is in DC, not Article V!”
And lastly, he asked, “What are we going to do? Sit back and keep taking this?”
Exactly. A Convention of States is the best — and only — way to rein in an out of control government.
