Rep. John Conyers
Sen. Debbie Stabenow

March 7, 2013

Ladies and Gentleman I understand the issue of safety. I would ask that you look at the statistics of every country that has given up their rights to bear arms. It is very easy to look at the media hype and the glamorization of the recent events. But the recent gun proposals will do nothing but take these tools from responsible law biding citizens. I will bet my paycheck not one of these proposals will have any affect on a criminal. Not one! The media is designed to dramatize/scare the public. Hell court cases are judged by the media hype before they even start. People are judged guilty initially and then weeks or months after the truth finally comes out it gets a very small amount of attention because its not drama, its the truth. Do not vote off of emotion look at the research and the statistics, be unbiased and focus on the numbers. These proposals will do nothing but hurt America.
Focus on the existing laws which are not enforced. Less paper more action. Less Drama more facts. Less Politics and Listen to what the people want. Once we give away our rights they never, NEVER come back.
Thanks for your time I hope you actually see this.
