D.C. City Council Wants Congress To Take Away 2A Rights

posted on December 24, 2015

The Washington, D.C. City Council unanimously passed a resolution urging Congress to impose “sensible and comprehensive gun control” in a city that already has some of the nation’s most onerous anti-gun laws, and the crime that naturally follows those left defenseless by such laws. 

Ironically, just seven years after the U.S. Supreme Court restored the Second Amendment rights of D.C. residents—and on the 224th anniversary of ratification of the Bill of Rights—the District saw fit to turn back the clock, noting in its symbolic legislation that 51 percent of residents surveyed would like to see the city re-impose its total handgun ban. 

While even D.C.’s police chief admits a gun may be victims’ best defense, city council busies itself issuing resolutions that read like press releases dashed off by the gun-ban lobby—further proof of how insulated and uninterested they really are about fighting crime or protecting good people.
