The esteemed and august Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison has introduced The District of Columbia Personal Protection Act in the U.S. Senate. The legislation aims to reverse the city's 28-year handgun ban and repeals D.C.'s gun registration law.
Gee, thanks, Senator Hutchison. Not that YOU live here year-round or anything! Not that YOU will ever have to ride the metro or a bus or walk home from a train station in a city where it will be LEGAL to carry handguns, assault rifles and assault pistols. Anyone over the age of 18 will be legally entitled to openly carry AK-47S, UZIs, AR-15s AND TEC-9s on the streets of DC. Thank you so much for restoring this "right" to the "law abiding" citizens of DC you continually trumpet. And congratulations on the big props you received from the NRA. Quote: "The National Rifle Association (NRA) commends Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison for her leadership on this issue, as well as the other co-sponsors of this important legislation," Chris W. Cox, NRA chief lobbyist, stated.
How nice for YOU that you want my child to have the "freedom" to live among assault weapons. Where do YOUR kids go to school, Senator Hutchison? When do YOUR kids walk home alone from public transportation? Any chance you yourself will be walking home alone or might suffer a home invasion by thugs armed with LEGAL military weapons? Yeah. I didn't think so.
Recognizing that your loyalty to the NRA will always trump your remotest inclination to give a d*mn about any citizen of the District of Columbia, I guess I do have the solace of knowing that you are a Republican: the party of homeland security. Because nothing says "homeland security" more than creating an assault weapons legal zone in the seat of American power. I'm so glad you are keeping America safe from its geopolitical core.
