Hot off the press... The House has abandoned the DC Voting Bill. The issue: The Gun Amendment, which was added as a result of the lobbying efforts of the NRA. I know it was a hard decision for many of our elected leaders, but it was the right thing to do. The residents of DC should not have to settle. We should not have to give up our right to control local gun laws in order to have the right to have representation. It's funny that the same conservatives that think the Federal government should not meddle in their business have no issue meddling in our business.
We just need to keep fighting. We may have lost this battle, but we haven't lost the war. As Lenny Kravitz said "Darling, it ain't over til it's over."
