(CNSNews.com) - A Maryland Republican has introduced a bill protecting the right of law-abiding Americans to use guns in self-defense.

The proposed Citizens' Self-Defense Act of 2005, introduced last week by Rep. Roscoe Bartlett of Maryland, would specifically protect the right of law-abiding citizens to use handguns, rifles and shotguns in defending themselves, their families or their homes.

The bill also would allow people whose self-defense rights have been violated by any government entity to bring legal action in federal court.

The bill, H.R. 47, has been referred to the House Committee on the Judiciary. It has the "enthusiastic support" of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA), which is urging swift consideration of the bill.

I mean, is there anything in this bill to not like? Can you imagine NYC, CA et. al. being inundated by citizens demanding their 2A rights back?

We have GOT to get ORGANIZED behind this Bill!

Write your congress critters! MOBILIZE PEOPLE!

Sounds great to me, and I would question the motivations and/or sanity of anyone who opposes it. That said, it probably won't pass.

But good luck to it all the same. I'll write my Rep.

But only until the criminals wised up or were all shot.
