Rep. C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger
Sen. Benjamin Cardin

February 3, 2013

As a concerned citizen about the gun control issue brought to head. After reviewing the issues and what is to be banned or limited, I do not see how these restrictions on law abiding citizens will further protect us. Criminals break the laws and in thus will not obay bans on magazines and style of weapons. Not to mention Vice President Joe biden said it himself that these weapons have not been used in many crimes and are less leathal than a common shotgun and by definition Vise President Biden and congress woman Fistein have been misusing the word assult weapon, a assult weapon has select fire and can change from semi automatic to fully automatic with a flick of a finger, the weapons they are trying to ban are look alikes and do not operate the same. As for the possible limitation on magazines this issue can hurt someone trying to protect themselves I personally wouldn't want to be responsible for limiting how much a person can protect themselves in they're own home or if they have a permit to carry. Limiting law abiding citizens is not the answer. Looking over all the gunlaws in place these laws need to be enforced before we throw more into play.

thank you for your time.
