House OKs resolution supporting 2nd Amendment

— The Arkansas House of Representatives has endorsed a nonbinding resolution urging the federal government to not infringe on the 2nd Amendment.

The measure passed on a voice vote Monday. The resolution does not require the governor’s signature, but Gov. Mike Beebe said last week that he supports the measure.

Republican Rep. Richard Womack said he filed the resolution to show his constituents that he hears their concerns about federal proposals to tighten regulations on firearms.

The resolution encourages federal, state and local governments to “respect and preserve” the right to keep and bear arms.

The resolution says a copy will be sent to President Barack Obama, leaders in Congress and other state legislatures.

Why doesn't any in the legislature care about the rest of the Bill of Rights? What's wrong with these people?

This is stupid. The SCOTUS has already ruled that the right to keep and bear arms is not absolute---else you could stroll onto an airliner with a .50 caliber--------so it will be up to the SCOTUS in the long run to rule on what limits will be allowed. This waste of time bill is just pandering and grandstanding instead of solving problems. Ugh.

Spending time doing something that has no effect is stupid. Nothing they are doing "protects" any of my rights any more than they are already protected.

The morons are once again buying into the shrill liars from Right Wing Media and responding exactly the way the RWM needs them to respond.
