‘The owners’ manual for Congress’

Jeff Soyer notes NY Congressman Eric Massa (D-Corning) speaking to high schoolers:

After a question about gun control, he reached into his pocket and pulled out a copy of the U.S. Constitution.

“This is the owners’ manual for Congress,” he said, flipping to the section containing the amendments and reading the second amendment, the one that establishes the right to have a militia and to bear arms.

“I will not, have not and won’t vote for any new gun control regulations,” he said. “We have not begun to enforce the laws we have.”
