I heard back from Bill Nelson. This is his normal canned response. The only thing he has changed is he dropped the part that tells us he grew up on a farm. Like that makes a difference.
How many believe that AK 47s are "the" issue? I'm not sure what is magic about the 10 round limit -- but maybe they have figured out a way to get the gangs and home invasion crews to limit themselves to no more than 2 thugs per attack and promise to stand still while we get the first 10 shots plus time to reload.
Dear Mr. :
Thank you for contacting me about policy proposals that seek to reduce gun violence in the wake of the tragedy in Newtown.
I am a hunter and have always owned guns, and I support the Second Amendment.
But assault weapons such as AK 47s are intended for killing, not hunting.
Solutions for reducing gun violence must address many areas, from protecting law enforcement and keeping weapons out of the hands of criminals, to school safety, access to mental health services, and confronting a culture that sometimes glorifies violence.
I support reinstating the assault weapons ban and restoring the 10-round limit for ammunition magazines. And, I support universal background checks so that we can know if person buying a weapon has a criminal record.
I appreciate hearing your views on this very important issue, and I will keep them in mind. Please do not hesitate to contact me in the future.
Did anyone in FL expect anything different from him?
