A new video uploaded to YouTube on Friday shows multiple individuals near the National Mall unable to successfully list three amendments to the U.S. Constitution.
The video, reportedly filmed this past week on Constitution Day, depicts Media Research Center reporter Dan Joseph interviewing individuals near our nation’s most historic monuments in Washington, D.C.
“Can you name three amendments, any of the amendments, to the Constitution,” Joseph asks one person.
“Yeah, the first, second and the third,” the man replies, later adding “I’m clueless, I’m drawing a blank right now.”
“Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness,” another individual says, not realizing he is quoting from the Declaration of Independence.
One woman even suggested removing the Second Amendment, suggesting learning Tai Kwon Do for self defense would be an adequate replacement.
“There is too many people getting killed with guns that should not be in this world,” she said. “There is other ways to protect yourself.”
“Like?” Joseph asked.
“Ugh … Tai Kwon Do,” she replies.
