Oh, man. So as you may recall, I would like to see Washington, DC’s handgun ownership ban significantly weakened. I also wouldn’t mind having some congressional representation. Well, Democrats in congress had cooked up a plan to get me some. Instead of zero senators and zero members of the House, we were going to get bumped up to zero senators and one member of the House. But then along comes Rep. Lamar Smith of Texas who “proposed sending the bill back to committee with additional language gutting the city’s gun restrictions” (that liberal media, I guess). So then “Democrats retreated, fearing that conservative, pro-gun members of their party could be tempted to side with Republicans.”
Thus, though I appeared to be on the very verge of getting both congressional representation and a handgun, for now, at least, I have to settle for neither.
