Call Their Bluff

The House Republicans want to repeal its gun laws to consider voting rights. Call their bluff. Repeal will make moot the coming Supreme Court case, killing any chance that the brand new Rogers Court will have a shot at applying the DC decison nation-wide, thus validating the recent NRA legal theory on the Second Amendment (which flies in the face of decades of precident which says that the Second Amendment applies to militias and not individuals). Let it come to a vote, so that Norton can vote no for the sake of plausible deniability. This should never have been allowed to stop the vote, since the GOP was bluffing. To Mr. Conyers and Mrs. Norton: come over to my place for poker. You are welcome anytime.
