Whereas the right to bear arms is a cornerstone of our individual freedoms 
        guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution;
Whereas gun ownership is an integral part of our free society today; and
Whereas in the ruling of 5 December 2002, the United States Court of Appeals for 
        the Ninth Circuit reaffirmed the Circuit Court's prior ruling in Hickman 
        v. Block, 81 F. 3rd 98 (Ninth Cir. 1996) that the Second Amendment does 
        not confer an individual right to own or possess arms: Now, therefore, 
        be it
    Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), 
That it is the sense of the Congress that the Second Amendment to the 
Constitution of the United States guarantees individuals the right to 
bear arms.
