Re: Assault Weapons Ban 2013 explained
Just wrote all of my senators, congressmen, the governor, and the president.
I am with every other member of this nation and believe that the recent mass shootings are utter and terrible tragedies. However, I do not believe that tragedies should be used as a political platform to springboard political policy. Please fight to protect our 2nd Amendment rights. I am an avid hunter and I choose to shoot throughout the year as a form of enjoyable recreation. I am also a firm believer that the 2nd Amendment is about making sure that no tyrannical powers are able to overthrow our government because our citizens are armed. This is a basic freedom put into place by our founding father's, and I am very thankful that they had the foresight to do so. ANY gun ban would be an infringement upon this basic right. Again, please be our voice and protect us from these possible "assault weapon" bans.
I think it is important to write Obama. He won't care, but numbers of people writing him that are opposed may change his view a bit...probably not, but worth a try...
