GOP PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE WANTS TO BOLSTER SECOND AMENDMENT FREEDOM IN OUR NATION’S CAPITAL
U.S. Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky has introduced legislation that would revoke Washington, D.C.’s invasive firearm restrictions. Paul’s bill – the “Defend Our Capital Act of 2015″- was introduced as an amendment to a health care bill.
The legislation would “remove existing restrictive firearm ownership laws in the District of Columbia,” while also requiring the district “to issue and grant reciprocity for concealed weapons permits for both residents and non-residents.”
“For too long the Americans who live in and visit their nation’s capital have been prevented from defending themselves and their loved ones,” Paul said. “No longer should our citizens have to choose between safety or visiting Washington, D.C.”
