A day after the tragic shooting of House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La, and others in Alexandria, Va. Wednesday morning, multiple members of Congress have publicly pondered how to keep themselves and others safe from other such attacks.
Rep. Thomas Massie, R-Ky., has an idea: Give people the freedom to defend themselves in our nation's capital.
On the Fox Business Network Thursday, Massie announced that he would be introducing the D.C. Personal Protection Reciprocity Act (similar to a measure introduced by House Freedom Caucus Member David Schweikert, R-Ariz., last year).
The bill would honor people's concealed carry permits (not just members of Congress) in the District of Columbia, where even a 2008 loss at the Supreme Court for the gun-grabbers has not deterred the government from keeping a tight leach on people's exercise of their Second Amendment rights.
In D.C. guns are only allowed in the home, unless one can offer a good enough reason for the District to issue them a carry permit. And very few can.
