Gun-Siezure Prohibition Passed Senate

Y'll recall N'awleans' little trouble with a big wind and lots of water.

During the aftermath, the "law enforcement" types literally ripped a revolver from the hands of a little old lady who had the weapon for self-defense (and defense of her property) because she had remained in the area.

The U S Senate passed an amendment to a bill which would PROHIBIT such siezures during "emergencies."

Here are the Senators who prefer dis-arming little old ladies, your wives and daughters, and you, by force, whenever an "emergency" is declared:

Akaka (D-HI), Boxer (D-CA), Clinton (D-NY), Dodd (D-CT), Durbin (D-IL), Feinstein (D-CA),
Harkin (D-IA), Inouye (D-HI), Kennedy (D-MA), Lautenberg (D-NJ), Levin (D-MI), Menendez (D-NJ), Mikulski (D-MD), Reed (D-RI), Sarbanes (D-MD), Schumer (D-NY).

Even Kohl and Feingold could not support dis-arming by force...

HT: John Lott

Wow, even Fiengold? Kohl doesn't surprise me, but, Fiengold? Wow.

Menendez surprised me. He is facing a challenger in November.
