    A Response from a California Representative

    I thought I'd share my representative's response on the current issues going at the state level in California. I figure some of you might be surprised to find out we aren't all crazy.

    Dear Mr. ----:



    Thank you for writing about gun control.



    Laws that aim to restrict or eliminate the ownership of firearms are often justified by arguing that we need to keep guns out of the hands of criminals. The problem is criminals and madmen don't obey them; only honest citizens do. Gun control laws end up producing a society in which decent people are helpless and defenseless and a gunman can kill scores of people because nobody is there to stop him.



    It may be prudent for Congress to consider proposals to ensure that individuals purchasing weapons are, in fact, law-abiding citizens and competent to own a weapon. It may also be appropriate for states and localities to consider requiring licensing for gun owners who wish to carry their weapons in public.



    However, such measures will not earn my support if they infringe on the inalienable right of individuals to own and defend themselves with a firearm.



    You will find a copy of my speech in which I outline my views on this subject here.



    Thank you again for writing.


    Sincerely,

    Tom McClintock

    Love it...Good for you, California, and American politics to have a Rep that is rational and constitutional! I bet he's a like voice crying in the wilderness...not many politicians listening. Here's to him standing strong with citizens like you!

    That's the link to the speech. I can't get all the forum controls to work on this government computer.

    Love that speech - and double kudos to Rep. McClintock for having the cajones to stick to that position in Californicatia, of all places!
