Response from Senator
 
I wrote to my Senators and said I would vote accordingly if they voted for any new restrictive gun laws. Here is the response I got today;


Quote:

Thank you for contacting my office with your thoughts on gun control legislation. I appreciate hearing from you about this important issue.



I am deeply saddened by the mass shooting in Connecticut that took the lives of 20 innocent young children and many of their brave educators. My thoughts and prayers remain with the victims of this truly shocking attack. Such unthinkable violence affects our entire nation and has no place in our society.



In response to this tragedy, we must employ a comprehensive approach to firearm safety that includes improving access to mental health services and better enforcement of our current laws. We also need to consider measures such as limiting magazine clip capacity and requiring better background checks. Please know that I will carefully consider any legislation that would impact Second Amendment rights.



I am a strong supporter of an individual's right to bear arms for hunting and self-defense, and I believe our tradition of gun ownership can be respected while also ensuring that our cities and towns, schools and public buildings remain safe. I have supported these rights throughout my career, and I will continue to be an advocate for responsible firearm use while a member of the U.S. Senate.



Thank you again for sharing your thoughts with me. Please feel free to contact my office with any future questions or concerns.





Sincerely,

Jeanne Shaheen
United States Senator
I am really tempted to reply and state that it is either a magazine, OR a clip, not both. And, further, ANY new restrictions, and I will not vote for her. Should I?

I would!


Just my 2cents

thum1995 01-15-2013 11:58 PM

Well would you vote for her if she supports any new restrictions? If not then yes I would reply.

clr8ter 01-16-2013 12:00 AM

No, I wouldn't, that's what the bottom part of my post says........
OK, I will, then!

YES but be polite. however. point out as mant facts as you can and also state that any new laws would effect millions of law abiding voting citazens. and look at NY. do you see criminals lining up at the police station because a new law was passed?? or something along those lines

Exactly what JJ said. Be nice and state facts.

I would think that you could point out that we currently have over 20,000 gun laws on the books nationwide, and adding another will do exactly jack sheet. Criminal who VIOLATE the law by committing murder, rape, assault, robbery, etc are already violating the law, with or without guns. What makes one think that they'd somehow decide it's ok to kill, but better go through legal channels to buy the gun. I mean, really, WTF is with congress, are they that stupid?

I would let them know that I vote. I would not point out their ignorance about terms...because they probably dont care anyway.

John_Deer 01-16-2013 12:22 AM

I wrote our Democratic senator to tell her that right now I am voting for the best candidate regardless of the party they represent. If politicians want to strip the second amendment I would be forced to vote single issue. I just left it at that...

Dude, its an auto generated response to appease both sides as fairly as possible.

Flooding her with emails from as many people as possible will help determine her vote in confress
