VOTE NO TO AN ASSAULT WEAPONS BAN

RE: STOP FEINSTEIN'S SEMI-AUTO GUN BAN
I am writing to demand that you vote NO to an Assault Weapons Ban as well as a ten round magazine limitation bill.
Feinstein's 'Assault Weapons Ban' does not simply include military style rifles as they preach to the public. It includes many everyday handguns, rifles, and shotguns used for sport, hunting, and personal protection. The very types of firearms they tell the public will never be threatened.
There have been countless self-defense stories of victims needing more than ten rounds to defend themselves or their families. The argument that a limitation would prevent mass shootings has been proven completely false. Demonstrations show that even a novice shooter can shoot 30 rounds using five, 6 round, magazines almost as quickly as one 30 round magazine.
These proposed bills are infringing upon our Second Amendment right to Keep and Bear arms. It would be a travesty if this got passed in our United States. You must listen to the people of this great nation who are telling you we do not want such federal gun control to exist in our country.
We do not want our guns to be controlled by the government. Our forefathers wrote the Second Amendment to protect us from the overtaking of a tyrannical government which the democrats are denying. History repeats itself; the first step in a tyrannical take over is disarming the citizens so they cannot defend themselves. A ban such as Feinstein's would be a first step in doing so.
I thank you very much.
