                               RESOLUTION


 
   Commending the recent decision of the Supreme Court of the United 
States in District of Columbia v. Heller for upholding the right of the 
  individual to keep and bear arms under the second amendment of the 
                             Constitution.

Whereas the second amendment of the Constitution states, ``A well regulated 
        Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of 
        the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.'';
Whereas James Madison stated, ``The right of the people to keep and bear . . . 
        arms shall not be infringed. A well regulated militia, composed of the 
        body of the people, trained to arms, is the best and most natural 
        defense of a free country. . . .'';
Whereas Samuel Adams once stated, ``[T]he said Constitution [shall] be never 
        construed to authorize Congress to infringe the just liberty of the 
        press, or the rights of Conscience; or to prevent the people of the 
        United States, who are peaceable citizens, from keeping their own arms. 
        . . .'';
Whereas the right to keep and bear arms is now an indisputable individual right;
Whereas Congress must be vigilant to safeguard the second amendment, which is as 
        valuable today as it was at the birth of the Nation;
Whereas the Supreme Court opinion in District of Columbia v. Heller reflects the 
        view of our Founding Fathers that law-abiding citizens have the right as 
        individuals to defend their lives, families, and property; and
Whereas no laws shall infringe on the right of law-abiding citizens to keep and 
        bear arms: Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved, That the House of Representatives commends the recent 
decision of the Supreme Court of the United States in District of 
Columbia v. Heller for upholding the right of the individual to keep 
and bear arms under the second amendment of the Constitution.
