Mark Cuban Wants to Change Second Amendment in Three Ways

In a new interview, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban proposed an “update” to the Second Amendment that would protect the rights of gun owners and bolster the authority of states to dictate firearm policy within their borders. “I would go to change the Second Amendment in ways that people probably wouldn't expect,” says Cuban, who backed Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election and is mulling a 2020 bid as an Independent.

Well, maybe give an "A" for effort.
The second amendment is clear as it is and the politicians twist it into kindling and spit on it.
Changing it's wording is not going to stop this.

And, some of Cuban's ideas .... reveal less than noble intent.

One-word answer: NO.

This debate was had at the Constitutional Convention, and its conclusion ratified by the states.

It is a fundamental right and a cornerstone of this country. The 14th Amendment extended the commands in the Bill of Rights to bind the states, effectively altering the 10th Amendment. The Supreme Court confirmed it viz the 2A in 2008. If it doesn't sit well with Cuban, that's too bad.

The principle is that no level of government can effectively disarm the American people, either outright or by whittling away at the edges, and that founding tenet is essential for our liberty.

“If you live in a state like Texas, if the law in Texas is open carry, so be it,” he adds. “If you live in Pennsylvania where they are more stringent and they don't want you to be able to have a gun other than in your own premises or under lock and key or you have to do a background check, then that's up to them to decide.”

Besides his idiotic opinion, he is just plain wrong.

I lived in Pennsylvania for 60 years and now live in Texas. Texas has more stringent gun laws and restrictions than Pennsylvania.

You can carry open in Pennsylvania without a permit. You can't in Texas.

You can carry concealed just about anywhere in Pennsylvania. You can't in Texas.

It is much easier and cheaper to get a carry permit in PA than in TX.

If that were to happen, citizens in a dozen states would lose almost all of their rights to bear arms.

The only thing maintained the gun rights that still exist in CA, WA, NJ, NY, HI, IL, MA, MD and several other states is the US constitution.

A nation of sheep will beget a government of wolves. — Edward R. Murrow
