Title: Requires Courts to Apply "Strict Scrutiny" to Certain Firearm Regulation Laws

Vote Smart's Synopsis:

Vote to pass a bill that submits a constitutional amendment to the voters that requires courts to apply "strict scrutiny" to certain firearm regulation laws.

Highlights:
  • Requires state courts to apply “strict scrutiny” to a regulation that restricts an individual’s right to bear arms (Sec. 1).
  • Prohibits the enforcement of any international law or treaty which interferes with an individual’s right to keep and bear arms (Sec. 1).
Note:

NOTE: AN AMENDMENT TO THE CONSTITUTION REQUIRES THREE-FIFTHS APPROVAL IN EACH CHAMBER FOR PASSAGE. IT MUST THEN BE APPROVED BY A MAJORITY OF CITIZENS VOTING IN THE NEXT ELECTION TO BECOME EFFECTIVE.
