    Saxby Chambliss - Senator from Georgia

    Just received a response from Senator Chambliss:

    Dear Mr. :

    Thank you for writing me regarding the right to keep and bear arms as guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution. Your taking the time to contact me is appreciated.

    I have always been and remain a strong supporter of the Second Amendment. While I am certain that the president's proposal is well-intentioned, it is Congress' responsibility to make sure that Americans' constitutional rights are protected. We must make certain that the rights and freedoms of law-abiding citizens are not unfairly impeded. I believe that the ability of sportsmen, hunters, gun enthusiasts and citizens concerned with their personal safety to own a gun, whether for sport or protection, is clearly defined in the Constitution and must not be compromised.

    In response to recent tragic and high-profile acts of violence, there is a renewed focus on government regulation of guns. It is likely that Congress will soon have an extensive and detailed conversation about all of the potential causes of these crimes, including mental health issues, depictions of violence in television, movies, and video games, and firearms.

    I know that dialogue regarding acts of violence will likely result in a wide range of legislative proposals seeking to address the underlying causes. As these pieces of legislation come before me in the Senate, I will keep your thoughts in mind.

    Please do not hesitate to contact me if I may be of assistance to you in the future. In the meantime, if you would like to receive timely e-mail alerts regarding the latest congressional actions and my weekly e-newsletter, please sign up via my web site at: www.chambliss.senate.gov.

    So he didn't say he was for or against more needless gun legislation?

    Actually, it's more the SCOTUS responsibility for that. It gets the final say so.

    He's a long time politician; what more can I say?

    Sounds like he's trying to be a politician about it, but it sounds more pro-2A to me.

    I'm sure he'll vote against all anti-gun moves, right before he votes for them.

    If he was really a pro-gun believer, he would have said so.

    My two concerns with the letter are its attributions of "well intentions" of a scholar president who knows the history of government and the dangers to which it submits its citizens - even unintended dangers that come from "well intentions" - and the coming "dialogues" that are mostly of no legitimate substance of a government conceived in liberty unless that government now has a blank check on control of its citizens.
    It is incumbent on me and my civic duty to remind my reps of the Constitutional constraints on government.
    Americans understood the right of self-preservation as permitting a citizen to repel force by force
    when the intervention of society... may be too late to prevent an injury.

    Actually, all members of Congress take the oath to support and defend the Constitution of which the Bill of Rights is part. So they really are supposed to protect our rights by the support of the Constitution and striving to pass constitutional law. SCOTUS ultimately decides the constitutionality of those laws passed by Congress and signed by the President. Sadly, IMHO, they all get it wrong all too frequently.

    This is the BS line. The only legislation we will see will relate to firearms restrictions on law abiding citizens.

    That is a seriously canned NON answer.
    As Benjamin Franklin left the hall in Philadelphia, he was asked, “What kind of government have you given us, Dr. Franklin?” He replied: “A republic, if you can keep it.”

    Actually it's the responsibility of all three branches to do that, though given their behavior since before you or I were even born, I wouldn't fault you for thinking otherwise.
