    Sen Wicker (R-MS) Response to My Opinion of AWB 2013 and EO's

    Thank you for contacting me in opposition to proposals by President Obama and others to prohibit so-called "assault weapons." I am glad to have the benefit of your views on this important issue.
    Recently, the White House and congressional Democrats have put forward proposals for stricter gun control laws, including a ban on certain semiautomatic rifles, shotguns, and handguns. Since coming to Congress in 1995, I have been a strong and consistent defender of the Second Amendment. I have opposed efforts to impose gun restrictions on law-abiding citizens, and I do not feel more gun control laws are the answer to the problems confronting our nation. I believe tougher enforcement of existing laws is a more effective means of addressing crime.
    President Clinton signed the 1994 "assault weapons" ban into law before I was elected to Congress. The Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act prohibited the manufacture or importation of semiautomatic "assault weapons" and large-capacity ammunition feeding devices. The bill included a sunset provision limiting the duration of the law's authorization to 10years. As a result, the ban on "assault weapons" expired on September 13, 2004. I do not support efforts to renew this ban.
    Be assured I will continue to defend our constitutional right to bear arms. Please do not hesitate to contact me if I can ever be of assistance.

    With best wishes, I am

    Sincerely yours,
    Roger F. Wicker
    U.S. Senate

    That's what I'm talking about. Good for him.
