Sen. Richard Burr
Rep. David Price
February 19, 2013
Please stand up for our rights, magazine restrictions will do nothing to stop violence.
Diane DeGette who is proposing this bill even stated herself - "I'm not so naive to think that we can pass some law that will stop a deranged person from taking a gun from shooting people." Right there she admits laws don't stop people from doing things.
This is a feel good emotional time with a senseless attempt to strip the rights of the people of the united states.
My thoughts mirror those of Senator TX Sam Johnson
"Protecting the Second Amendment
I am a proud supporter of the right to keep and bear arms. Hunting ranks among one of the long-standing shared hobbies and tradition in American families ��" that is passed down from generation to generation. We must protect that legacy of freedom. Our Founding Fathers would not have imagined that the right they listed second in the Bill of Rights, the right to bear arms, would be systematically attacked.
The Second Amendment states, "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
"This is a vital protection granted to a free people. It should not be infringed upon by local, state, or federal government. Citizens may choose to own a firearm for a variety of reasons: hunting, sport, collecting, or personal protection. Each is a valid, honest reason to own a firearm.
With more than 20,000 local, state and federal gun laws already in existence, adding even more gun laws is not the answer. I support the enforcement of existing laws rather than imposing new restrictions on gun ownership.
Criminals, by definition, do not respect the law. They will seek out illegal avenues to obtain guns and other weapons of choice.
Gun control laws do not make our communities safe. They do not take firearms from criminals, but rather from law abiding citizens. I have consistently voted to support the right of people to own a firearm, and I will continue to support the Second Amendment. Make no mistake - owning a firearm is a fundamental freedom protected by the Constitution."
Do the right thing and DO NOT add more Laws that DO NOTHING TO PREVENT CRIME.
Reject this Bill...... PLEASE DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT...
