    I just looked up the text of the 21st Amenment on wikipedia.

    I would propose the following wording:

    Section 1. The second article of amendment to the Constitution of the United States is hereby repealed.

    Section 2. The transportation or importation into any State, Territory, or possession of the United States for delivery or use therein of firearms, in violation of the laws thereof, is hereby prohibited.

    Section 3. This article shall be inoperative unless it shall have been ratified as an amendment to the Constitution by conventions in the several States, as provided in the Constitution, within seven years from the date of the submission hereof to the States by the Congress.

      There is no requirement to set time limit.

      Setting a time limit is the way the GOP has introduced to kill amendments.

      If it takes 20 or 50 years to get the states to ratify the Amendment so be it. But setting a time limit is self defeating.
