“Public Safety and Second Amendment Rights Protection Act”

April 10th, 2013

Yes, that is the name of the imminent gun-control legislation. ABC notes:

The name of the agreement underscores its goal to try to appeal to both sides of the gun debate

I renew my call to *not* name a law after potential victims, and that includes those who would benefit from “public safety.” As for adding the “Second Amendment Rights” to the name, I am shocked at how far this Amendment has come. I have gone back and read the debates over the Brady Bill in the early 1990s, and there is nary a mention to the Second Amendment .Now, in 2013, it gets top billing.
