 I am writing to protest the gun control bills before Congress. AS you know Gun Control does not work. Criminals do not obey laws! What is happening is that you are punishing law abiding citizens for the actions of mentally deranged individuals. Clearly there is an agenda here that Congress is pursuing that has nothing to do with guns.

Why is DHS arming themselves with BILLIONS OF HOLLOW POINT BULLETS, which are not permitted by the Geneva Convention. They can only be used on American soil. Also the DHS ordered 7000 Rifles that are on the banned list and they state they are the perfect home defence weapon. So I ask what is going on up there? This is the ultimate hypocricy. History has proven that gun bans do not work. Look at Chicago and New York,they have the toughest laws and the highest crime rate. Why do you all ignore the facts. The lowest crime rates are where there are the least gun control laws it's simple, gun bans do not work.
Universal gun registration is a prelude to confiscation and infringes on our 2nd Amendment. That is a U.N. agenda and does not sit well with most Americans.

We did not put Representatives in Government to run our lives. We are not happy with this nanny Government that is developing. If you want to cut the budget, get rid of the bloat that is DHS and TSA. You could save millions. Thank you for your attention.
