And in an interview with The Washington Post on Tuesday night, Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah), chairman of the powerful Oversight Committee, said he was inclined to support proposals to roll back D.C. gun laws.

“I come from a belief that the Second Amendment should be equally implemented here in the District of Columbia. I should be able to carry if I so choose. I feel safer doing so.”

It would be gratifying to see the Committee say...

"We regret that Congress hasn't been following the Constitution with regards to the District of Columbia. We have been reminded that Congress is supposed to exercise '...exclusive Legislation in all Cases whatsoever...' within the district pursuant to Article 1, Section 8.

Therefore, we are proposing a Bill to void all District laws, and all City Ordinances, and return that exclusive legislative authority to Congress, adopt the criminal code and traffic laws from the State of Maryland, and set up a Committee to review and promulgate appropriate legislation as mandated by the Constitution, thereby fulfilling this one, at least, of our responsibilities"
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
I know of no safe depository of the ultimate powers of the society but the people themselves; and if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them but to inform their discretion. —THOMAS JEFFERSON
