 Hi, and Thank You for taking the time to read this message! I would like to take a moment to share waveith you my view on increased gun /magazine laws, the only people that will be affected will be the law abiding citizens. Criminals will be criminals, they won't surrender anything that they have illegally. They will use this to their advantage to outnumber the first line of defense which are always police, they are people like me who lawfully protect my family in the home or out among the masses. So please take in to consideration that you might not be in favor of firearms, possibly due to misunderstanding or under education of the purpose and safety of a good guy with a gun. Is not the guns that kill, it's the person behind it, the gun is just a tool.

I think a bigger concern is balancing our economy, reducing outsourcing, and increasing available jobs. Many who lack a jobrely on a government system of entitlement. Reduce the entitlements will require less tax increases on the TAX PAYERS. If the government is unable to balance an economy because it is insistent on outsourcing, we are all in trouble. Outsourcing means fewer jobs for the people, increased crime (because of a lack of money) and many more people expecting entitlements.

Please work wisely, I do at my job, but I am becoming frustrated because of those who think they deserve entitlements who have never worked a day in their life or are here illegally living off the systems our government offer but they respectively deserve.
