Two more letters I sent today.
Written myself. Open to anyone using them in part or in whole to contact their legislators themselves.
Letters sent to POTUS, VPOTUS, Sen. Nelson (Fl), Sen Rubio (Fl), and Congressman Buchanan (FL)
C'mon people, let's be heard!!!!
I am writing this letter as the President continues his effort to restrict the rights of law abiding citizens due to the actions of a few outliers in society. Capitalizing on the emotion of a tragedy such as the recent shootings at Sandy Hook is necessary to pass gun control legislation, because without the emotion of the moment, logic prevails and intelligent people acknowledge that added laws, by definition only affect the law abiding among us.
Additional laws will not stop or even reduce such tragedies. We need to focus on the root of the problems in our society: The ongoing "war on drugs" and the gang activity and criminal on criminal murders it causes, Mental health issues and the fact that nearly every mass killer in the past 20+ years has been using some type of drugs to fight depression or other psychiatric ailments, and the general acceptance of violence and de-sensitizing of our society. We need to get back to personal responsibility and proper parenting and mentoring of our young people.
A short term solution, such as adding law enforcement personnel, trained and background checked private citizens, or trained teachers and administrative staff in our schools would serve the immediate need. Look to Israel and even a few select areas in our country's high schools for the benefits of this. The long term solution, however is to spark some fundamental changes in society.
Gun control, or anything focused on the "instrument" of crime will be a failure. It has not worked in the past, and it will not work in the future. When law abiding citizens have their rights restricted because of the actions of a few, we lose sight of the basis on which this country was founded.
I urge you to reject any measures which will further limit our Second Amendment rights. I will do everything in my power to ensure that anyone who supports further erosion of the Second Amendment guarantee of our God given rights, does not get re-elected for further (dis)service to our great county.
