I sent some letters to my congressmen and State legislators recently regarding the impending attacks on law abiding citizens via restrictive legislation. The scenario above was one of the possible situations I reminded them I would be watching for. Then I politely told each one that my vote and the vote of everyone around me would depend solely on the way they voted for any bill containing anything that could be construed as "gun control." ANd my view of gun control fit into the framework of the quote below by TX Rep Hupp.
I went on to add that before the recent threats by Diane Feinstein and NY Governor Andrew Cuomo, I was content to write a letter or two expressing my opinion. Should any of their garbage pass into law, I would be forced to become infinitely more active in politics, particularly at election time.
I don't know if they take me seriously BUT yesterday, I got a reply letter from one of my Senators, Chuck Schumer. For those who do not know about him, he's usually the one in front of the camera. Anyhow, this is the first reply I think I've ever gotten from him. (I still think I can throw a Buick further than I trust him.) In that letter there was some drivel about how he is there for hunters and sportsman and all the good things he has done for us. (refer to the statement previous about tossing a Buick.) I'm still waiting for the rest to reply.
