While DefenseReview is a tactical technology / military defense technology online magazine, and not a political magazine, and we therefore usually stick to the tech, we’re making an exception, in this case (excuse the pun). A professional contact of ours just sent us the link to Congressman and Chief Deputy Whip Eric Cantor’s petition to save the Second Amendment (a.k.a. 2nd Amendment) to the United States Constitution. Rep. Cantor created the petition in direct response to the recent and fairly reprehensible Department of Justice (DOJ) brief sent by U.S. Solicitor General Paul D. Clement to the U.S. Supreme Court regarding the Washington D.C. Second Amendment / gun-control cases District of Columbia v. Heller and Shelly Parker, et al. v. District of Columbia and Adrian M Fenty.

Clement filed the brief on behalf of the the Bush administration, which is troubling.

On its face, this would appear to be an attempt by the Federal Government to…

gut the Second Amendment, and thus retain as much power, and simultaneously limit the rights, and thus power, of individual citizens, as much as it can, which is profoundly disturbing, by itself. But the fact that it’s coming from the White House is especially problematic, since it means that Mr. Clement’s/DOJ’s brief carries a considerable amount of weight.

Anyway, we would encourage our readers (i.e. every person who reads this) to please sign the petition at the link below, and any/all other Congressional and/or organizational petitions supporting the Second Amendment that you can find.

Here’s the link:
