Year to reaffirm Second Amendment.

Is this 200th anniversary of the Bill of Rights the year for Congress to reaffirm its belief that the Second Amendment guarantees an individual right to keep and bear arms?

John Snyder believes so. Snyder, chief Washington lobbyist for the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA), told Shooting Industry, "I'm going to do everything I can this year to promote Congressman Crane's resolution."

Rep. Phil Crane (R-IL) introduced House Congressional Resolution 11 -- The Second Amendment Reaffirmation Resolution -- on Jan. 3.

The resolution has been introduced for several years without any success, and Snyder knows he faces an uphill battle this year.

But he thinks it's worth the effort because, "If we could press this resolution during the Bicentennial of the Bill of Rights, what a fantastic historical exclamation point that would be!"
