Senate passes limit on gun confiscation during disasters
The Senate yesterday voted for the Vitter Amendment, an appropriations rider prohibiting use of federal funds to confiscate guns during a natural disaster. It now goes on to the House.
Vote was 84-16. You'd wonder that the 16 didn't even bother to pose as "we really don't want to confiscate anything, we just want reasonable regulation."
UPDATE: Bitter's on a roll on this one, noting that Kerry managed one of his "I voted for it before I voted against it" moments.
