Members of Congress Who Have Signed the Congressional Amicus Brief

These Minnesota members of Congress have signed an amicus brief urging the Supreme Court to uphold a ruling that the District of Columbia handgun ban violates the Second Amendment.

Sen. Norm Coleman
Rep. Tim Walz (MN-1)
Rep. John Kline (MN-2)
Rep. Michele Bachmann (MN-6)
Rep. Collin Peterson (MN-7)
Rep. Jim Oberstar (MN-8)

You can view the complete list of Congress people who have signed on to defend our constitutional right to keep and bear arms.http://www.nraila.org/Legislation/Read.aspx?ID=3451 This list is made up of a majority of the Senate and more than half of the members of the House. 55 Senators and 250 House members.

Sen. Kay Baily Hutchinson (R-Tex.), who led the effort to file the friend-of-the-court brief, said her staff could not find another instance in which such a large portion of Congress had taken a position on an issue before the court.

"This court should give due deference to the repeated findings over different historical epochs by Congress, a co-equal branch of government, that the amendment guarantees the personal right to possess firearms," their brief contends.

"The District's prohibitions on mere possession by law-abiding persons of handguns in the home and having usable firearms there are unreasonable."

I hope you notice the absence of Senator Amy Klobuchar, Representative Betty McCollum, and Representative Kieth Ellison.

Remember the 2006 election? I received a mailing paid for by the Minnesota DFL. It was a well done, colorful piece of literature littered with lies. It said "Amy Klobuchar believes in the peoples second ammendment rights to keep firearms for hunting, shooting, and self defense." If this is true, why is her name not included in the list?

I take no pride in saying that our US Representative here in SD39 is the little lockstep liberal, Betty McCollum. She is consistant. She can always be counted on to vote in a far-left, socialist fashion to denigrate our second ammendment rights. Lets flood her mail box. I doubt it will do a damn bit of good, but let's do it anyway. http://www.mccollum.house.gov/index.asp?Type=NONE&SEC={AC61FD79-AD5F-440D-A7F0-555B12349E5B

When I posted this, February 8th, I also emailed Betty McCollum and Amy Klobuchar. Guess what? No response at all. Just what I figured.

Another day goes by with no response from our ladies in Washington.

Still nothing from them.
