APPEARS IN Second Amendment

Senate Version of D.C. Personal Protection Act Introduced!

Wednesday, March 28, 2007

This week, Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-Tex.) introduced S. 1001, the Senate version of the “District of Columbia Personal Protection Act,” with 41 original cosponsors! Like its House counterpart -- H.R. 1399, introduced on March 8, by U.S. Representatives Mike Ross (D-Ark.) and Mark Souder (R-Ind.) -- the Senate legislation seeks to restore the constitutionally-guaranteed Second Amendment rights of the residents of the District of Columbia by repealing the District’s onerous gun ban.

“For more than three decades, failed gun control laws have robbed the law-abiding citizens of Washington, D.C., of their Constitutional right to protect themselves,” said NRA-ILA Director Chris W. Cox.  We commend Senator Hutchison for her leadership on this issue and for her steadfast support of our Right to Keep and Bear Arms.  NRA asks all freedom-loving Americans to ask their Senators to vote for this bill.  We will continue to work until we right this injustice in our nation’s capital.”

Please be sure to contact Senator Hutchison and thank her for sponsoring this important legislation, and for her support of our Second Amendment rights.

Also, please continue to contact your U.S. Senators and your U.S. Representative and ask them to cosponsor and support H.R. 1399 and S. 1001. And please encourage your family, friends, and fellow firearm owners to do the same!

You can call your U.S. Senators at (202) 224-3121, and your U.S. Representative at (202) 225-3121.
