Pascal writes: “Before this gets deleted for not being gun enough, this new Google tool allows you to search through “Constitutions” from other countries. When talking about gun stuff, UK vs AUS vs USA it is interesting to compare the different documents out there. While the compare feature is not available yet, it is coming. Also, if the democrats wish to rewrite ours, I guess Google will help them along.” ThayneT adds: “I did a seach on right to bear arms. The constitutions for four other countries came up – Guatemala, Haiti, Iran and Mexico. If you want to see what the gun control advocates would like our second amendment to look like, here it is . . .
Guatemala: The right to own [tenencia] weapons for personal use, not prohibited by the law, in the place of inhabitation, is recognized. There will not be an obligation to hand them over, except in cases ordered by a competent judge.
Haiti: Every citizen has the right to armed self-defense, within the bounds of this domicile, but has no right to bear arms without express well-founded authorization from the Chief of Police.
Iran: …the government is obliged to provide a programme of military training, with all requisite facilities, for all its citizens, in accordance with the Islamic criteria, in such a way that all citizens will always be able to engage in the armed defence of the Islamic Republic of Iran. The possession of arms, however, requires the granting of permission by the competent authorities.
Mexico: The inhabitants of the United Mexican States have the right to possess arms in their residences for their protection and legitimate defense, except such as are expressly forbidden by law or which have been reserved for the exclusive use of the Army, Navy, Air Force and National Guard. Federal law will determine the circumstances, conditions, requirements, and places in which the bearing of arms by inhabitants will be authorized.
