FROM THE LIBERTARIAN PARTY:
We worked with Rich Heller on the DC LP ballot access drive in 2004. He stepped in and paid us, and also personally petitioned with us, after the DC LP had no one else up to the task.
Last week, we had a great victory in the battle to protect liberty in this country.
Immediately following this morning’s Supreme Court decision on the case of DC v. Heller, where the court ruled that the second amendment protects an individual right to own weapons for self-defense, the Libertarian Party issued a release in which spokesperson Andrew Davis praised the ruling as a “landmark victory for the preservation of liberty in the United States”:
“Firearms are a distinct component of the American national character,” says Davis.
