    Looking over his other stances, he is a classic party line toter. Interestingly he is also a party flip-flopper.
    This quote really pisses me off!!!!!!!

Mr Yarmouth preceded to say, and I am paraphrasing here, " the government spends 25% on the military. Anybody who thinks they can withstand our military is delusional." I was speechless. Think about that. This is a person who took an oath to protect the constitution of the United States saying if you resist us we could easily take you out.
    I would have called in and told him that anyone who thinks the majority of the military would blindly march lockstep against the Constitution, and the American people, is even more delusional...

    As I have stated, I agree that Americans have the right to defend themselves and their property. 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. That gun, by the way, is statistically far more likely to result in the injury or death of someone close to me or them, than someone bent on doing harm. Moving forward from the terrible tragedy in Newtown, CT, we must have a discussion on where we draw the line between keeping our citizens as safe as possible and pro tecting the right to bear arms. Currently, I believe that line is not drawn enough toward guaranteeing the safety of our citizens.

    Have to say, he gave you a reasoned response. Follow it up, keep the dialogue going. I wrote to the Mayor of San Diego back when they were contemplating banning "saturday night specials". She responded, and they weren't banned. Stay on top of this, just not voting for him next time's going to be cold comfort.

    He asked for your "input".

    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.

    Now, that is the unadulterated, absolute truth.

    But, we still gotta stop 'em. 'cause they still think it'll work.

    He didn't. He copy/pasted from one of his own websites sections and added in the word "I disagree".

    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.

    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."
