Dear Senator Clinton.....
I just wrote the following letter in a very "stream of consciousness" type of mode. It's a first draft and I expect there are many errors in spelling, punctuation and such. Please ignore as they will be corrected before being sent out.
Though I am going to attach my name to it, I realize the letter may reflect the way many other people feel, so I am open to any constructive criticism that you may want to offer. Please do not be offended if the final draft does not include your suggestions.
I'm heading out for the better part of the day, will check back tonight.
Dear Senator Clinton,
I am writing you to ask that you please reconsider your stance
on issues involving the Second Amendment in New York state. As a
law abiding citizen of The United States Of America, I find it insulting
that you do not think that I should be able to defend my life or the lives
of those I love with the Rights that I am entitled to under the Second
Amendment. Furthermore, it's upsetting to constantly see your name
next to a checkmarked "NO", on any pro 2A legislation. Please vote
knowing that your vote affects lives. Yes, it is tragic when a child is
killed while playing with a loaded gun. Is it any less tragic when a
woman is raped at knifepoint? Is it any less tragic when a father is
killed for a few dollars? I submit that it is not. Bad things happen to
good people all the time. Why do you feel the need to deny people
of their right to defend themselves?
Gun laws are only effective when people obey the law. I think that we
can both agree, that, by nature, criminals do not obey laws. So I ask,
who is effected by gun laws? Would you not agree that it is cruel to
de-claw a cat and set it free in the wild unable to defend itself? I find
it difficult to believe that you would place less value on the life of a
human being, than that of a cat.
14 deaths in 13 days? Correct me if I am wrong but, does Washington
D.C. not boast having some of the toughest gun laws in the Country?
Congratulations, while not scientific fact, I believe the recent events in
Washington D.C. speak VOLUMES about how ineffective your gun
laws are. Just another 14 cases of criminals doing what criminals do and
good people doing what they do....being victims. Everyone involved
played their rolls to a "T". That includes the Police. Police Officers
RESPOND to crimes. Rarely do Police Officers know where or when
a crime is going to take place, making it near impossible for them to
PREVENT crimes. I know that you are not but, you really should be
ashamed of yourself. In my eyes, the laws you helped pass led to the
deaths of those poor people. I find it reprehensible that criminals are
freely enjoying the rights that I am entitled to, while I am forced to obey
laws that I completely disagree with. If you truely believe in equality, then
why do you deny the citizens of New York the same rights that most other
states grant to their citizens?
I would also like to congratulate you on ridding the State of New York of
1 more family. The very moment my wife retires, we shall be seeking
residence in a State that respects our rights as American citizens.
