Support The 2nd Amendment Rights of D.C. Residents

Even in the face of an unambiguous Supreme Court decision, Washington D.C. government continues to to illegally make effective self-defense impossible.

See here for what you can do about it.

In a strong bipartisan effort, House Democrats and Republicans recently joined forces to introduce H.R. 6691, the “Second Amendment Enforcement Act.” This critical NRA-backed legislation would overturn Washington, D.C.’s newly enacted “emergency gun control laws,” which continue to defy the U.S. Supreme Court’s unambiguous decision in District of Columbia v. Heller by continuing to restrict D.C. residents’ right to self-defense....

H.R. 6691 currently has 116 cosponsors, but we need more! The bill is expected to be considered on the House floor next week, so please be sure to contact your U.S. Representative -- AS SOON AS POSSIBLE -- at (202) 225-3121, and urge him or her to cosponsor and support H.R. 6691 (“Second Amendment Enforcement Act”).

Let Carl have his Sig!

I am delighted to see that so many Democrats in Congress are willing to stand up for the Second Amendment.

That woman had big ones! (And I don;t mean ta-tas!) That's why Kathy Jackson (aka "pax" on the gun forums) corectly quotes Kipling.

About Me

I'm a 57 year old geek. I voted Democratic for 20 years, because I disliked the Republicans more. But now, nobody really speaks for me. I'm for Guns, for more correct government regulation of the financial world, against illegal immigration and amnesty. (in 2008 I ended up voting Republican - too many questions about Obama, and voting against anybody who voted for TARP 1.) In 2010 I voted a stright republican ticket because the Democrats have completely lost their minds.
