D.C. Voting Rights: Gunned Down?


A bill to add a voting member of Congress for the District of Columbia (and another to Utah simultaneously, so that delicate balance of Dem/GOP power wouldn't be disrupted and kill the idea dead) passes the Senate---but is currently stalled in the House since the Senate added a measure that would overturn D.C. existing gun possession restrictions, and House Dems don't like that a bit.

D.C. City Council member Mary Cheh contemplates continuing to support the bill--if the same gun laws apply to the Capitol and federal buildings.

Steven Chapman was against the idea of D.C. voting rights, on constitutional grounds, last week at Reason Online.
