    Do we need state legislatures stating the obvious?

    Considering the fact that the US legislators and Executives seem to keep forgetting it... it would seem so.

    I am disappointed that:

    1) The resolution was not drafted to address the rights of Virginians under the Virginia Constitution; and

    2) The resolution was not drafted to express the sense of the General Assembly to respect and preserve the rights of Virginians under both the Virginia Constitution and The Constitution of the United States of America; and

    3) that the resolution was not drafted to express the sense of the General Assembly that Congress must respect and preserve the rights of The People to keep and bear arms as expressed in The Constitution of the United States of America.

    Other than, that, it seems to be a fine resolution.

    I have sent the Senator Delegate an email regarding these points, with a specific request that the resolution be amended to address the points above.

    stay safe.

    I am also disappointed that he specifically mentions sporting, hunting uses of firearms but neglects to state the actual purpose of bearing arms to resist tyranny!

    If VA legislatures really would like to help protect us from "infringements" on the 2A from the Federal Government they could nullify the Gun Control acts of 1934, 1968, 1986!!!!!

    That would be a good start!

    Here's something new (GPO hasn't printed the text yet).

    Sen Rand Paul (KY) has introduced S.82, "A bill to provide that any executive action infringing on the Second Amendment has no force or effect, and to prohibit the use of funds for certain purposes."

    He doesn't have any co-sponsors (yet). I don't imagine our own Senators would sign on to this.

    Joint Resolution on the Second Amendment

    No, our two senators would be opposed to such defense of the Constitution. It would be such heresy within the DNC to overturn the Mad King's decree that they would be pariahs.

    Well, DiFi's bill is here at last. (on line text unavailable as of 1/26/2013).

    S.150
    : A bill to regulate assault weapons, to ensure that the right to keep and bear arms is not unlimited, and for other purposes.

    However, here's an alternate link.
