Finding New Ways to Undermine the Constitution

A bill to eviscerate the Washington, DC gun bill is before the House. Currently it is supported by 50 Democrats and several Republicans. The bill would make it legal to carry guns, riffles, and even semi-automatic weapons in DC. Furthermore, it completely ignores Washington, DC’s right to govern and legislate itself! This is wrong and yet another example of DC’s continued, unconstitutional, and illogical taxation without representation.

It is amazing to me, that Sarah Palin, Republicans, and conservatives can imply that Democrats and liberals want the “government to tell you what to do; to make your choices,” and yet they support efforts that undermine the votes, thoughts, and concerns of half a million people. It is outlandishly offensive.

Here is the NY Times article: http://www.nytimes.com/2008/09/10/opinion/10wed2.html?th&emc=th
