    Senator Tim Scott says it like it should be said.

    No beating around the bush here folks.

    Dear Mr. "DG",


    Thank you for contacting me to express your concerns regarding any legislation or treaty that would ban civilian weapons. I certainly appreciate your input on this important issue and the opportunity to share my thoughts with you.

    I have not seen a ban on a weapon that I agree with, and like you, I am an ardent supporter of an individual's right to possess and bear arms. This right is unequivocally protected by the Second Amendment and is a cornerstone of our democracy. As Americans, we have the right to defend ourselves, our families and our property, and the federal government should not interfere with this right. You can be assured that I remain steadfast in my commitment to defend and uphold this fundamental freedom and will keep your concerns in mind when considering pertinent legislation.

    Again, thank you for sharing your perspective with me; I hope that you will continue to do so in the future. If I can ever be of assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me or a member of my staff.

    For more information, please visit my website at Senator Tim Scott and subscribe to my monthly e-newsletter. I also encourage you to follow me on Facebook: www.facebook.com/SenatorTimScott and Twitter: www.twitter.com/SenatorTimScott for daily updates.

    Sincerely,

    Tim Scott
    United States Senator

    He is the one politcian that I have not received a response from yet. I have been patient because he is new and needs to get things up and running. I am glad to hear his views. Our Governor made a good choice.

    I've got one senator that would be like that, and the other one not so much, however she's due for re-election in two years.
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    Well stated, by someone who appreciates what "infringement" means and why it must be disallowed.

    If any of our elected officials,in S.C. are trying to get anything banned,it's really top secret.Obviously,doesn't mean someone isn't trying,but,they are doing it very quietly.

    The only thing that would have made it better would be if he included, "...and I'm going to start impeachment proceedings against all of those commie [insert expletive here] before sundown! Clean your guns and keep your powder dry."
