Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson

February 3, 2013

Hello,

I just wanted to send another simple note on my stance for my Second Amendment rights. I don't believe that Dianne Feinstein's new bill will solve any issues with controlling violence. Nor does the Vice President of the United States on his live chat on Google a few days prior.

I stand for stronger mental evaluations on those suffering from mental and emotional illnesses. I also will stand for armed security in our schools, and even support trained Principals and Teachers with CHL licenses to be able to carry to defend the lives of our children. But, as the Vice President stated in his own words:

"It is true that the vast majority of deaths in America are not a consequence of the use of an Assault Weapon."

I also believe that it is time to do what VP Biden suggested as well:

"Make your voices heard. This outfit...this town listens when people rise up and speak."

I am speaking today to you as my elected officials in "this town." I am stating that I believe these bans will not prevent crime, nor does the historical data in Chicago, the UK, and our own studies by the FBI. Please stand against these bans on magazines and assault weapons.

Thanks you for your time in reading this note. May God bless you and your families, and may God bless America.
