Protect the 2nd Amendment!

Â Please do not use the tragedy in Newton, Connecticut to pass gun control laws that have NO impact to public safety like the 1994 Gun ban law. In fact, the "Assault Weapon" as defined in the 1994 bill only accounts for .2% of All crimes where a firearm is used, according FBI statistics! The only thing the 1994 Ban did do was restrict law abiding gun owners from owning certain weapons.
There is a reason criminals are murdering all these people in "Gunâ€'Free Zones". That's because they've been setup to be easy victims! By putting more restrictions on our Right to Bear Arms, you would only be making us all easier victims.
We've tried the "Assault Weapons Ban" before and we know it doesn't work! reâ€'instating the assault weapons ban in any form is just insane! Albert Einstein said it best. "Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results."
Let's try something different! Letâ€™s let the People decide whatâ€™s best for them. Government doesnâ€™t need to CONTROL every aspect of our lives.
Long Live the Republic and God Bless the United States of America!
