The Gun of the Month was Home Protection Guns, one of

LEGISLATIVE REPORT, SEPTEMBER 19th, 2008
The major news this month is that the “do nothing”
congress has actually done something positive for the 2nd
They passed the 2nd Amendment Enforcement Act-HR
6842 in a bi-partisan vote in the House. It now goes to the
Senate where Sen. Kaye Bailey Hutchison of Texas will try
and get it passed. This Bill repeals the Washington. DC
To cut to the chase regarding Obama & Biden on the
2nd Amendment, it should be noted that both refused
to sign the “friend of the court” brief submitted by
more than 300 members of congress supporting Heller.
Looking at the states, the Ohio Supreme Court just upheld
that states preemption law. The anti-gun folks are still
trying to get local cities in all states to pass anti-gun laws
and support them in court. This causes the NRA and local
pro-gun groups to spend money fighting them in court.

Looking outside the USA, Great Britain is slowly going
back to English Common Law on self-defense. The
headline on the English Daily Telegraph read, ”You have
the right to shoot dead a burglar”. Of course getting a gun
will be a problem. Actually this law permits the victim to
fight back against a burglar or mugger without being
This change came about after a British shopkeeper fought
back against an armed robber, took away the robbers
knife and stabbed him to death. The shopkeeper was
actually charged but the prosecutor later dropped the
charges after some publicity.
