James H Jim Webb - It's my gun
Ward's post sends you to this article.
Q: Was the gun yours?That speaks for itself. Webb is saying I left my loaded gun unsecured and I don't have to answer as to whether I follow gun laws. Watch this video. At the 1 min 25 sec mark listen close. Jim says since 9/11 the need to defend oneself is important. You mean it was not important before 9/11? Is there a threat here at home Jim? Are you saying the same terrorists we are fighting over there are a threat here? Why Sen Webb are you claiming the right to protect yourself and not standing up for every American's right to do the same?
A: "It's my gun. But what I said in the [March] press conference is true. I did not give it to Phillip, nor did I ask him to do anything with it."
Q: Will you talk about the question of whether you comply with the District's handgun law?
A: "I don't think we need to discuss that any more."
