Political News:House Votes To Block Seizure of Legal Guns in Disasters….Clinton, Schumer, Pressed to Renominate Bolton

House votes to block police from seizing legal guns in disasters

Excerpt:Republican Rep. Bobby Jindal, the Louisiana lawmaker who sponsored the bill, said firearms seizures after Hurricane Katrina left residents unable to defend themselves.
“Many of them were sitting in their homes without power, without water, without communication,” he said. “It was literally impossible to pick up a phone and call 911.”
The House voted 322-99 in support of the bill. Senators voted 84-16 earlier this month to include a similar prohibition in a homeland security funding bill.

H.L.s Take
Now maybe Homeland Security won’t be so willing go show up at someones home, and kick them out into the street.

Schumer and Clinton Pressed To Reappoint Bolton

NY Sun
Excerpt:As the Senate prepares to consider anew the nomination of John Bolton as United Nations ambassador, Senators Schumer and Clinton are facing increasing pressure from pro-Israel groups to renounce another Democratic filibuster in light of the escalating war in the Middle East.

The Foreign Relations Committee is set to hold a hearing on the nomination tomorrow, and several Democrats on the panel have voiced their unswerving opposition to Mr. Bolton’s nomination.

From New York’s senators, however, there has been nothing but silence. Mr. Schumer and Mrs. Clinton voted to block Mr. Bolton’s confirmation a year ago, but they have not declared their positions this time around.
