Reader comment on item: Islamists the Biggest Terror Threat to U.S.: Poll

Submitted by Mal Citron (United States), Jun 28, 2013 at 16:51

Mr. Pipes, is it time for this country to take an in-depth look at our constitution to see where we can modernize it to cope with current problems while still not endangering our freedoms? We do not live in an 1800s or 1900s environment and perhaps an amendment or two might be a good thing in our battle with terrorism.

I would be interested in your opinion on this.

Thank you M.C.

Daniel Pipes replies:

The legislative process is continuously updating the Constitution; there is rarely a need for new amendments.
