Two bills introduced- HR1399 (which already has enough co-sponsors to pass) and S1001 (which is at 47 co-sponsors- 3 short) to order DC to lose the "Semi auto as Machine gun" language.

Time to start calling our Congressmen and Senators.

Amends federal law to eliminate criminal penalties for carrying a pistol whether loaded or unloaded in one's dwelling house, place of business, or on land possessed by such person.

Sounds as if this would negate Overturf???

No... This is an act of CONGRESS, specific to the District of Columbia (which they have ultimate legislative authority over).

Overturf is a California case regarding California law.

As much as I would miss the DC smack down in court (giving us some more case law), if this passes then Gura can spend his time dealing with carry out side of the home in DC and not over bizarre non-machine gun machine gun definitions!:43:

If Congress is going to force DC to fix its laws, they should also force DC to go shall-issue. Obviously DC isn't able to manage its own affairs, so Congress should set things right.

AWESOME!!! The government is finally getting it! Americans want their guns, and they are helping.

This is such good news! And will be way cheaper for the tax payers in the long run.

Sorry, I saw the "Federal Law" and took it out of context.

A personality trait and the levels of intelligence the Mayors of Washington DC, Chicago and New York all share.:D

We can expect the same kind of "childish behavior" in this state also when we really start to implement Heller.

Reminds me of a colleague commenting on one of the top adam henries at work:

"I can tolerate arrogance when it is based on ability. In his case, it isn't."

1) I don't trust a bald man who wears a hat.

2) An ambitious man with talent - fine. A man with no talent and no
ambition? Well, at least they're too lazy to do any damage. But beware
the ambitious man with no talent, they are a threat to any organization.

That's a good one. I'll remember it.
