He asked for your "input".
Not that it would matter in the grand scheme of things.

It pretty much refutes all his baseless claims, of which he doesn't have many.

The ONLY way to keep people safe from guns (which we all know guns are not responsible for shooting people) is to eliminate every single firearm on the planet. Take them from every law abiding citizen, individual, hunter, collector, security guard, contractor, mercenary, police force, 3rd world terrorist group, museum, military, secret service, celebrity body guard, gang member. Every pistol, revolver, shotgun, rifle, musket, muzzleloader, bb gun, pellet gun, airsoft guns, every firearm on the planet and if we've got any underwater, underground, or in space must be completely destroyed and any ability to manufacture must be destroyed also. After that they can start erradicating doctors, sharp objects, blunt objects, and etc. Should keep them busy for a few centuries until they finally have nothing left but the reason for it all-human beings.
We all know that evil people will find the tools they want for their evil acts. They've already decided to break the law against murder what good will some pesky firearm law do to stop them? Disarm the military, police, bodyguards and we'll see what kind of chaos ensues, that is if we can get everyone on this spinning rock to comply which such rediculousness.

Proud owner of a G35. And yes I carry it concealed.
He's probably a lost cause but I would respond anyway. Even on the Brady Campaign's website they link to a survey that says gun owners use guns to stop an estimated minimum 80,000 crimes per year. Their justification is that criminals commit more crimes with guns. They elect to leave out all the restrictions on gun owners and the small number of CCW'ers available to thwart crime. Congressman Yarmuth, in saying that semi-auto rifles are more likely to harm him than bad guys, is ignoring the fact that darn near revery police force in the US uses them. He is also ignoring that they are used in less than 1% of the crimes committed. I'm also with those that stated the individuals in the military would turn on citizens and just for mentioning that he should lose his position and demonstrates why citizens should have access to those weapons.
Your Congress critter wrote: "I believe even more fiercely that I have the right, and every child has the right, to be safe from guns without carrying a gun."
Let's see if this makes sense..."I believe that every child has the right to be safe from fire, without having to worry about fire extinguishers and smoke alarms."
"I believe that every child has he right to be safe from the flu, without having to get a flu shot."
"I believe that every child has the right to be safe from car accidents, without having to wear a seat belt or a booster seat."
The number of people killed because they didn't have "enough gun" is dwarfed by those who had none at all. Get a gun you will always carry, and add more capability as you grow.
