Hutchison wants a gun

U.S. Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison (R) wants a gun. She probably already has one or more, she is from Texas you know. The twist is that she wants to pack heat in the District of Columbia. At the very lease, she wants to keep a gun at her D.C. residence. There is the kicker though. For thirty years, the District of Columbia has laid claim to some of the strictest gun control laws in the nation.

Hutchison has suffered the agony of being Defenseless in D.C. for twelve years, but has decided that she’s mad as hell and … You know the rest. She has filed a bill that if passed would allow her to pack heat. Wait, there’s more.

The bill would, in one swoop, negate all the gun laws the district has adopted over the past 30 years, including pre-purchase criminal-background checks and bans on semi-automatic weapons and cop-killer bullets. If it passes the Senate, it is expected to breeze through the House, which passed a similar bill last September.
