no new gun laws

Rep. John Shimkus
Sen. Richard Durbin

March 7, 2013

Your support for new gun legislation will result in both my vote, and my wallet supporting your opponent in the next election. There is no asterisk after the 2nd amendment, and non of the laws proposed have even shown to reduce crime. Some have even increased it!

The only thing that has shown to reduce crime is a shall issue carry program. How about we implement one of those on a national level instead of focusing on ensuring criminals are better armed than law abiding citizens.
