    Ohio Senator Portman's Response

    Here is what I got from Rob Portman -

    Dear XXXXX,

    Thank you for contacting me to express your concern about the rights of gun owners. It is good to hear from you.

    As you may know, I am firm supporter of Second Amendment rights. Like you, I believe that infringing on the rights of law-abiding citizens does not address the root causes of violence in our society.

    As you may know, I am a gun owner who believes in the right to bear arms in defense of self, family and property. During my 12 years serving in Congress, I received an "A" rating from the National Rifle Association for defending our Constitutional Rights. I opposed the so-called "assault weapons ban" and opposed the Brady Bill. I supported repealing both the Federal Assault Weapons Ban and the Washington, D.C. gun ban. I voted to protect the private information of gun owners; to protect state gun laws; and to protect firearm and ammunition manufacturers, dealers or importers from lawsuits and damages related to criminal misuse by a third party.

    Thank you again for taking the time to contact me. If you have additional questions, please use the contact form on my website Rob Portman, and I will look forward to responding to you.


    Sincerely,
    Rob Portman
    U.S. Senator

    That's the kind of response I like to see. Factual, taking a firm stand & not all wishy washy. Good for Ohio, good for us.

    He said he "opposed" the original ban. I hope he opposes a new ban too. We will see, there will be alot of pressure on he and his fellow Democrats to get into line and vote as a block.
    I'd rather be lucky than good any day

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

    Wow, I must be the most uninformed voter out there - I thought he was a Republican.
