This petition had 49 supporters


Protect the welfare of innocent children. Avoid senseless violence and needless deaths.

Section 1. As a member of the United Nations, the United States of America, and all its peoples, fully endorse and support the following statement of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child: all children everywhere have the same rights, no matter where they live or what they believe.

 

Section 2:  Every child born to this world has the right to life, survival and development; the child’s view should be taken into account in all decisions affecting his/her life.

 

Section 3. The best interest of the child will take primary consideration and will supersede all existing laws and amendments that otherwise could endanger the safety and welfare of children.

 

Section 4: All Children born to this world have the rights guaranteed by this amendment, without discrimination of any kind.

 

Section 5: The Congress shall have the power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.

 

Section 6: This amendment shall take effect immediately upon ratification.

 

 

Section 3 is the key to this concept: only after we, as advocates for children, can pass a law that supersedes the Second Amendment will meaningful legislation be passed in this country. 

 

This fight must have a beginning, so please work to ratify this proposed Children’s Rights Amendment to the US Constitution.
