Every able bodied individual in America should be required to own a firearm. Project Amendment 28 is dedicated to commonsense gun ownership and each citizen doing their fare share for the well-being of the United States.

In Switzerland, government funded civilian militias are the foundation of the most peaceful of European countries. All Swiss men get military training except for those who have opted for an alternative civilian service. If you do neither military nor civilian service you get taxed. After getting your Swiss Army training you go home and become part of the militia for the next 10 years or so, and your gun goes with you.

Kennesaw, Georgia requires gun ownership. In 2007, Family Circle magazine selected Kennesaw as one of the nations "10 best towns for families."

In Israel, every soldier carries his or her weapon at all times. Large numbers of citizens also carry firearms openly, or concealed. Street crime is non-existent and numerous terrorist attacks have been foiled due to the quick responses of average citizens.

The right, and obligation, of every free citizen to keep and bear arms is a fundamental bulwark against tyranny, an essential tool for self defense and a key to the self-reliance so essential to the American character.

We, the undersigned, call on the United States Congress to pass, and submit to the states for ratification, the following 28th amendment to the Constitution of the United States:

"In order to provide for the security of the individual, the state and the general well-being of the country, all able bodied individuals shall be required to own one modern firearm and ten rounds of associated ammunition.

Individuals are required to receive firearms training. Exceptions shall be made for those adjudicated mentally ill, convicted of a crime of domestic violence, a felony, or have been separated from the military with a Dishonorable Discharge.

Individuals that are fundamentally opposed to owning a firearm shall be taxed and each year shall register with the government as firearms objectors until age 62 or until proven by a medical doctor to be unable to operate a firearm.

If an individual is unable to purchase a firearm one shall be provided by the Federal Government."
