DC Voting Rights Could Be Back Up

Apparently they’ve been peppering Childers district in Mississippi and Ensigns home state of Nevada with literature in an attempt to help them both get re-elected:

The measure, sponsored by Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-D.C.), was thwarted earlier this year in the House when Rep. Travis Childers (D-Miss.) attached an amendment to the bill that would loosen the city’s gun laws and lessen penalties for violating local gun laws.

The DC Vote advocacy group has spent the summer pumping Childers’ district with advertisements that denounce him for the amendment. It plans to continue the ads through September, adding a Nevada focus at some point to target Sen. John Ensign (R-Nev.), who sponsored a similar amendment to the Senate version of the bill.

Yes, I’m sure in Mississippi and Nevada that DC style gun control will be a very popular issue!  Go ahead and bring this turd back guys.  We’re ready with some polish.

“We’ll continue to push for passage of a clean bill within this Congress. I don’t know what’s going to happen with the NRA. We’re doing our part to continue to put pressure on people who are caving to the pressure of the NRA. So we’ll see what happens, but we’re definitely still hopeful.”

Yeah, you keep doing that.  I’m sure Senator Ensign and Congressman Childers appreciate the free campaign materials letting constituents know they support the Second Amendment.

  1. Childers likely blew his reelection chances for his vote on the stimulus package, He is from a conservative distric and hopefully will be replaced by a true conservitive.

  2. Travis the Weasel in favor of gun rights? Now THAT’s gonna really hurt him next fall in the First District. Yeah, right.
