As you have probably already noticed, things have been realigned here at RNS.
I’d like to thank Craig at MTPolitics for taking some time to help me get some front page issues fixed.
You’ll also notice on the side bar that the search box is now up top for easier searches and that David’s links are now no longer in the basement.
Let me know what you think.
And now that I have probably completely lost your attention, I want it back so that I can tell you to Call Your Senators!
Texas Republican Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison and 46 other senators have asked for Senate floor time for House-passed legislation to roll back District of Columbia gun laws.
In a letter Thursday to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid , D-Nev., the group asked him to call up the bill before the end of the 110th Congress.
“We ask you to ensure that D.C. residents do not have to wait any longer to realize their constitutional rights,” Hutchison and her allies wrote. The letter was signed by five Democrats.
Pro-gun-rights lawmakers say the District government is not abiding by a June Supreme Court decision in District of Columbia v. Heller that voided the city’s handgun ban. The D.C. City Council promulgated temporary laws in July, and another set of temporary laws Sept. 16, even as city officials work on new permanent ones.
