Looks like he is on the right side.
Thank you for taking the time to contact me regarding your thoughts on federal gun control measures in light of the recent tragedy in Connecticut.
A terrible and incomprehensible act of violence took place at Sandy Hook Elementary School. We are all deeply impacted by the horror of little children and brave adults being murdered. There are many serious issues that will need to be discussed and considered in the weeks and months to come. But right now, our primary concern should be for the families and the community of Newtown.
At moments like this, America comes together to mourn and support one another. We will do so again in the coming days, and then search for answers on how to prevent such tragedies in the future
As your Senator, I believe it is my primary responsibility to uphold the Constitution and the Second Amendment is no exception. I will continue to strongly support our Second Amendment rights. One of the bills I have chosen to cosponsor regarding the Second Amendment is S. 570 introduced by Senator Jon Tester (D-MT) on March 14, 2011. This bill would prohibit the Department of Justice from tracking and cataloguing the purchases of multiple rifles and shotguns.
Thank you again for taking the time to share your thoughts. It is important for me to hear the views and concerns of the people I serve. Please feel free to contact me in the future if I can further assist you or your family. It is an honor representing you and the good people of Wisconsin in the U.S. Senate.

Yep, Ron Johnson's one of the "good" ones. Now, as far as Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) goes...don't forget to flood her mailbox and phone with letters and messages (she conveniently has no email or fax listed).

Is he good or what? Too bad we elected Tammy Balwin as our other senator ( well I did not) . She is the first openly gay senator and is left of Nancy,Harry and Barney Frank combined.
thanks Ron Johnson !
Proud to vote for this guy, if I could.

I received the same response from him today. Great to see. I'm not expecting anything like this if / when Tammy Baldwin responds to my letter. Well, at least were batting .500 here.
You can count me among those who received this reply from Senator Johnson as well. I like the guy, and I hope he continues to earn my trust and support. Tammy, on the other hand, well.... :(

Yup, proud I voted for him. Baldwin is as bad as Feinstein.
OK it's a nice start to say no file tracking. BUT...what about any NEW weapons or firearms accessories or ammo bans or any additional NEW laws Senator?
And his Bill ( S. 570 ) Died.
It was introduced 10-months ago so this isn't anything NEW that's going on. It was just flushed to the forefront pending recent events.
I also received the same letter today. Thanks Ron Johnson. I don't expect a favorable response from Baldwin... I think she's a bit left of Feinstein.
