As a voter and poll worker in your district, I wanted to express my concern to you regarding the unconstitutional, fear mongering based attempt to disarm American citizens. Even more disconcerting is the fact that the president and his administration believe that they can exert dictatorial power, circumventing Congress to attack our Second Amendment rights.
Criminals do not care about laws. They will acquire guns, or whatever weapon they want to use for their nefarious activity, regardless of what the law is. The only thing this unconstitutional gun grab will do is put innocent, law abiding citizens in harms way by preventing them from protecting themselves, their property, and their family.
If stringent gun control, which strips Second Amendment rights from the people, were the answer to alleviating violence, then the city of Chicago would be a model of safety. Instead, Chicago, which has some of the most strict gun control laws in the nation, led the country in number of deaths related to firearms at 532. The people could not protect themselves against the criminal activity around them and many paid for it with their lives.
Every day hundreds of Individuals Protect Themselves and Others with Guns. We are All the Safer for That. A Society where the Lawful are Armed the Unlawful live in Fear. A Society where the Lawful are Unarmed the Unlawful Run Free.
Let me assure you, I am a real person and I live in your district/state. Whether they are a Democrat or a Republican, the American people deserve to have elected officials who live up to their promise to protect and uphold the Constitution.With Freedom comes Responsibility. When Government takes away Individual Responsibility it Destroys Freedom for All.
