By Fenit Nirappil March 21
A freshman Republican congressman from Virginia has introduced legislation to void the Districtâ€™s strict gun laws as one of his first bills, sparking a retort from Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-D.C.) that he should pay more attention to the lax gun laws in his own state.
Rep. Thomas Garrettâ€™s bill, filed March 15, would eliminate the Districtâ€™s prohibition on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines while making it easier for residents and visitors to carry concealed firearms.
The bill is the House counterpart to legislation reintroduced this year by Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.)
â€œMy citizens should be able to come to their capital and protect themselves, just the way they can at home,â€ said Garrett, a former state senator who represents Charlottesville and a conservative swath of central and southern Virginia. â€œThis should be something that D.C. leadership looks at. Itâ€™s their responsibility to protect their citizens.â€
