Congressmen Signing onto DC Case

It’s good for us that there were only eighteen members of Congress who were willing to put their name onto a document
in support of a complete and total prohibition on handguns and other functional firearms.  It’s good, both, that there were so few which would go on record as supporting such, and because it makes the group small enough to list the Congress Critters here:

Representative Robert A. Brady (PA-01)
Representative John Conyers Jr. (MI-14)
Representative Danny K. Davis (IL-07)
Representative Keith Ellison (MN-05)
Representative Sam Farr (CA-17)
Representative Chaka Fattah (PA-02)
Representative Al Green (TX-09)
Representative Raul M. Grijalva (AZ-07)
Representative Michael Honda (CA-15)
Representative Zoe Lofgren (CA-16)
Representative Carolyn McCarthy (NY-04)
Representative Gwen Moore (WI-04)
Representative James P. Moran (VA-08)
Representative Eleanor Holmes Norton (DC)
Representative Bobby L. Rush (IL-01)
Representative Maxine Waters (CA-35)
Representative Lynn C. Woolsey (CA-06)
Representative Albert R. Wynn (MD-04)

Lead member on this brief is Congressman Fattah, who is from Philadelphia.  Bob Brady is also a Philadelphia Congressman.  Now at least we know which members of Congress can’t argue they are for “reasonable controls”.  These Congressmen and women favor and wills stand up for outright prohibition on all functional firearm possession.

    Alright! No one from NJ signed up! When you live here, you look for any glimmer of hope.
    By the way, I like the new side scroll when I navigate around…very fancy.

    Ah, Maxine Waters, the lovable race-baiter from my home state.
    If you ban guns, her constituents will be able to riot at will. Or, my apologies, engage in “urban uprising” without fear of being shot by deservedly infuriated Asians.

    likewise happy to see no nj names. But James Moran? WTF?

  5. Brad says:

    I was curious about the geographic spread of those who signed. There is a surprising lack of concentration from the usual roster of anti-gun States. It’s almost as if D.C. fished around for Congressmen willing to sign on from as large a geographical distribution as possible to provide at least a fig-leaf of ‘national’ support for their position.

    Even so, five of the eighteen signers are from California. How sad to see how far California has fallen, especially since I am stuck behind enemy lines in Commiefornia.
