"It is the common fate of the indolent to see their rights become a prey to the active. The condition upon which God hath given liberty to man is eternal vigilance; which condition if he break, servitude is at once the consequence of his crime and the punishment of his guilt." -- JP Curran, 1790

Citizens' Self-Defense Act of 2009 (H.R. 17) Update

I've posted previously about H.R. 17, and I just wanted to give the Offering "Common" Sense readers an update on the progress that the House Judiciary committee has made since this bill was introduced and referred to them:

NSTR - Nothing Significant to Report

Seriously, folks, that's it. There is no significant action on a bill that seeks to help protect our 2nd Amendment rights, and our right to self-reliance. This basic, fundamental freedom is essential to a free society, but we can't continue to sit and watch Congress fumble over how to spend more of our children's [not even yet] hard earned money while they ignore voting on our fundamental rights.

First and foremost, want to commend the sponsor and co-sponsors of the bill:


Now, for some real action. Here's the house judiciary site, complete with contact information for Chairman John Conyers (D-MI). Perhaps it time for Americans to tell Rep. John Conyers that he should stop wasting his time issuing politically-motivated subpoenas to Karl Rove and others, and push this bill out to the full House for a vote. Ladies and gentlemen, contact Chairman Conyers and ask him why he favors petty politics over true policy, and insist that the House Judiciary move this bill out of committee today!

I believe in the 1st Amendment. Say whatever you want. If you're a moron, I may point that out...if I have time. :P
