Hey, remember two weeks ago when congressional bodies were hitting the ground, and some guy named Loudermilk rushed to a microphone and said congressvermin should pass a law giving them the privilege of going armed anywhere they wanted? And then other, more populist-minded vermin patted the air with their hands and assured us that they’d never, never do such an elitist thing? Heh. Yeah. Good times.
Introducing H.R. 2940, The Congressional Self-Defense Act, “To allow Members of Congress to carry a concealed firearm anywhere in the United States, with certain exceptions.” Introduced 6 days after Loudermilk shot his mouth off. Still picking up co-sponsors as of Wednesday.
Notwithstanding any other provision of Federal law or any law, rule, or regulation of a State or any political subdivision thereof, a Member of Congress who is carrying the identification required by subsection (b) and who is not otherwise prohibited by this chapter from transporting, shipping, or receiving a firearm may carry a concealed firearm for any lawful purpose
Meanwhile National Reciprocity goes nowhere.
Sure glad all those conservatives voted in all those Republicans. Good to know we’re saved from the perfidy of lawmakers.
Better idea — since they “represent” all of us, let’s go the other way and say all federally elected office holders must abide by the most restrictive firearm regulations in existence anywhere in the United States; and violators will be subject to the whatever the maximum penalty is anywhere in the United States.
I’d bet big money on a sudden “constitutional awakening” to the value of the Second Amendment.
Never happen of course. Just sayin’,
Another step in the empowerment of the “ruling elite”.
Doesn’t improve my already-dismal attitude toward congresscritters. . . and their ilk.
“congressvermin” yep that about sums it up…
I was a loyal Republican for more than 40 years. Never missed an election, even when I was deployed overseas. But now I don’t consider myself a Republican. I don’t know what I am, but I’m done being “Step’n Fetchit” for any party.
According to my readings, in 2011 the California State Senate voted 28-2 to exempt themselves from California gun laws.
No torches, pitch forks, or decorated lamp posts followed.
Our forefathers are spinning in their graves.
“Gun violence” would virtually cease if we simply barred registered Democrats* from owning guns. Since most Democrats reject the 2nd amendment anyway, they’d likely consider it a good first step in disarming the whole country. Of course, the joke would be on them.
