March 12, 2013

 I thank you for your continued resistance against the proposed AWB legislation in all its forms. I know you stand with your constituents in protecting our Constitution and its provisions like the 2nd Amendment in its entirety. However if you need more leverage in committee please communicate thefollowing to the members:1) A huge campaign of disinformation on guns is pushed daily on our TVs and devices. It has nothing to dowith public safety and preventing future mass shootings of innocent people; no gun law would have stoppedAdam Lanza
. Violent criminals will always break laws and be violent, with all kinds of devices. They will steal and disobey any laws that stand in their way; just like in CT.
If we truly wish to increase public safety then we should make laws whereby immediate armed response by good civilians is allowed and encouraged.Now that will save our children and stop these senseless massacres by madmen.2) This movement is more ominous in nature and it ties into an alarming political change in the US. The exact kind our forefathers worried about.
It seeks to fully disarm the American people over a period of years. Is this Constitutional? The proposed AWB and its associated bans (magazines) will make great in roads to this purpose. I and millions of others wish to prevent this and work to preserve rule of law in this country.3) Our Bill of Rights was specifically included by our forefathers to protect this important right of self defense and of being armed. It ranks only behind freedom of speech in importance. The 2nd ensures the others rights can remain protected and prevents the destruction of personal liberty. Like we are seeing right now.
