Rep. Sander Levin
Sen. Debbie Stabenow

January 28, 2013

Dear Dually elected officials,
Please note that I am a tax paying citizen who has studied the trends of violence in America for the past 30 years. From these studies I have realized that any new laws ore restrictions would do either little or nothing to prevent further deaths. Previous to the gun free zones, there were very few mass murders of the likes seen at columbine, aurora, or sandy hook. Why, if this technology has been around for 100 years, is this activity trending only in the past 20 years? This happened directly after the creation of the gun free zone and the increase in the prescription of psychotropic drugs. A firearms/magazine ban is not the answer, because as recent examples have shown, a person defending their home from multiple attackers may need more than 10 bullets as a result of loosing most of ones finer motor skills in high pressure situations. You swore to defend the constitution which says that my right to bear arms as a law biding citizen shall not be infringed. The definition of Infringed simply means to limit. Thusly any law limiting my access to firearms (gunpowder ejected NON-exploding projectiles. IE: no grenade launchers or RPGs) is unconstitutional, and if you vote unconstitutionally, you and your party will lose my support. Remember, a truly democratic Government, can only derive its power from the consent of the governed.
