A Goode effort to get behind

With the Bush administration's Department of "Justice" having taken the position in its Heller brief that "shall not be infringed" apparently means . . . something else, it's good to see a Republican Congressman speaking out against this mealy-mouthed attempt to protect tyranny. Representative Virgil Goode (R-VA) has done just that.

Read the letter (in the link), and use Gun Owners of America's web mail tool to contact your own representative, asking him or her to join Representative Goode's effort to persuade the Bush administration to withdraw the brief.

Likely to happen? Probably not, but it certainly won't happen if gun owners stick to our standard "strategy" of doing . . . very little.

UPDATE: Nicki is on this, too, and reminds us (how did I forget already?) that Rep. Goode is not the first congressman (or even the first Virginia congressman to speak out against the administration on this.

Yeah, I'm sorta in the same boat as dirtcrashr. Anything we do might just fall on deaf ears.
