Thank you for contacting me with your concerns regarding gun control initiatives in the wake of the recent shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School.**I appreciate hearing from you on this matter.*No*words can describe the unspeakable tragedy that occurred in Connecticut.* With the loss of so many innocent lives, especially the young children, my*thoughts and*prayers go out to the families and the community around them.**Although I believe that gun owners must be responsible for the use and care of their guns, I do not want to see law-abiding gun owners penalized for the actions of reckless criminals such as the young man responsible for the tragic shooting in Connecticut.**With recent tragedies,*it is too easy to place the blame on guns, and their accessibility, rather than on the persons who committed the crimes.**Currently, there are numerous laws on the books regulating gun purchases and use; more legislation will not result in safer streets, offices or schoolyards.*I will continue to fight for the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens of this nation. At the same time, I will work for laws that deter and punish those who abuse these laws.*Again, thank you for sharing your views on this issue with me.**If you have any further questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.**Sincerely,*Walter B. Jones Member of Congress
