Really, why stop there? Why not buy and distribute guns to everyone while you're at it?...ASSES.

On the heels of Bush's passive-aggressive maneuver yesterday that let the Assault Weapons Ban lapse, the House of Representatives (that is, the Republicans therein) is on track to pass a bill repealing most of D.C.'s gun restrictions. Fortunately the Senate looks likely to put the kaibosh on it, but even introducing the idea is so ass-backwards and to my mind obviously FUCKING CRAZY.

A particularly interesting tidbit:

Souder's bill also would deny the District's elected officials "authority to enact laws or regulations that discourage or eliminate the private ownership or use of firearms."


Souder...said his proposal is based on the Second Amendment's guarantee of gun rights. "This is a constitutional issue, not a home rule question," Souder said. "The fact is, we didn't allow the District to have home rule on the selling of slaves, either."

What a tactless and anachronistic argument you got there, Chiefy. Again, why not just call a spade a spade? Hand guns out to people while simultaneously telling D.C. residents to go fuck themselves and their right to have any voice in what happens to them.
