This would be a good start.
The Second Amendment only applies to members of Congress?
Congresses only ones legislation....
I have a huge problem with this. Members of Congress are public servants who asked for the job their in. Their lives are of no more value than the other residents of D.C. They get pad very well for the job their in and no one forced them to take the job. Why should they have any special rights that other citizens, whom they work for do not have. This is typical ruling class mentality and has nothing to do with supporting the 2A.
It's a horrible proposal, but think of class action suits that could spin off of this, countrywide, and demanding equal protection under the law. "Congress shall make no laws.."
It's a horrible start. If lawmakers allow themselves this or other exceptions, where's the incentive to do the same for us, the great unwashed?
Yes this is unacceptable. This type of thing makes my blood pressure rise.
If only some enumerated power existed for some group that Rep. Gohmert could get in touch with allowed that group to set and change DC laws...
Surely somebody up there has seen that in a document somewhere...
This is one mass demonstration that I would not miss on the steps of the Nation's Capitol!
OMG could you imagine being around a bunch of crazed politicians that carry guns, when your not allowed to carry?
As it currently stands, they do not even have enough sense to not spend money that we do not currently have.
Maybe they need to have someone read the Constitution to them again. They seem to have missed the "...shall not be infringed..." part.
As regards passing laws which make congress-critters exempt from those burdens faced by us mere mortal citizens... we need less of that, not more of it.
Bill To Let Congress Carry Guns In Capitol and DC is
This with a quickness! ^^
Is there someone (Coffeemate?) who would write a petition, that we could all subsequently sign, and forward to our legislators, along with the request that it be read aloud in the House?
All of a sudden I have this picture in my head of Cynthia McKinney drawing down on the
capitol police when they won't let her bypass security...
I suppose we'll have to throw "Whereas..." in there a few times, huh?
I hear he owns a thesaurus. He'll be good for it.
Well, here's a first draft...
I think it needs some work... (I don't know, is the ending too strong?)
The main points I was trying to communicate are...
1) These infringements shouldn't even exist at all
2) It's disgusting that a Congressman would even consider something like "...let's make ourselves exempt but keep them in place for everyone else..."
3) We're sick of this kind of stuff and we want our Federal government back!
