    Reply from my senator (PA)

    For what it's worth...

    Dear William,
    Thank you for contacting me about the killings in Newtown, CT. I appreciate hearing from you.
    Like all Americans, I was horrified and sickened to learn about the mass murder in Newtown, CT on December 14, 2012. As you know, Adam Lanza murdered 26 people that day, including educators and young children at Sandy Hook Elementary School and his mother at her house, before committing suicide. My thoughts and prayers are with the victims and the families who were affected.
    In response, we need to come together as a nation, carefully reflect on what happened, and have a thoughtful dialogue on how we can improve public safety and protect our children. Of note, this atrocity in Newtown was the direct result of serious mental illness - something we have consistently observed in other mass killings over the years. We therefore need to better protect ourselves from mentally ill individuals who seek to carry out such atrocities. We also need to review and improve how we take care of the mentally ill. I therefore value your input on this issue and look forward to Congress debating which policies should be implemented to improve public safety.
    Thank you again for your correspondence. Please do not hesitate to contact me in the future if I can be of assistance.
    Sincerely,


    Pat Toomey
    U.S. Senator, Pennsylvania

    Leaves latitude to go either way when voting time comes.
    I have a very strict gun control policy: if there's a gun around, I want to be in control of it.

    Interesting. He avoided any talk of the 2nd amendment whatsoever. I don't know if that's a good thing, or a bad thing...

    Carefully worded letter
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    I don't believe your Senator's views on the 2nd amendment are in alignment with your views.
