A Temporary Reprieve

Posted by revkharma on March 3, 2009

I have written several times about the attempts by the Pelosi led House to ram a bill through the House of Representatives to create a full seat for the District of Columbia. Virtually anyone involved has agreed that this is, at the very least, of dubious constitutionality. Eleanor Holmes Norton, DC’s current non voting representative has said, essentially ” So, sue me!”.

Well, it seems the folks at the NRA have managed to apply some political pressure and it has worked.Writing in Human Events, Jed Babbin has stated that the Blue Dog Democrats were swayed by the potential of being exposed by the NRA as anti gun. Good for them!  There is no certainty that this bill will not resurface sooner or later, but for now, it appears it has been pulled. I have only a single source for this, but will dig further. But, at least this is good news amidst the rubble that the US congress has provided so far

Keep the Faith!
