    Letter from my Congressman re HR 1096

    I'm liking this man more and more all the time:
    ----------------------------------------------------------------
    March 23, 2007

    Thank you for contacting me in regards to your support of H.R. 1096,
    the
    Second Amendment Protection Act of 2007. I appreciate your taking the
    time
    to share your thoughts on this matter with me.

    Introduced by Representative Ron Paul (R-TX), H.R. 1096 would repeal
    the
    Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act and the Federal Firearms License
    Reform Act of 1993. Additionally, this legislation repeals provisions
    of
    the Internal Revenue Code and the federal criminal code distinguishing
    firearms used or suitable for sporting, recreational, or cultural
    purposes
    from firearms used generally. It also repeals the Child Safety Lock Act
    of
    2005 and other provisions of the federal criminal code relating to gun
    storage and gun safety devices.

    As you know, the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution reads: "the
    right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."
    While
    others may disagree, the plain language of this Amendment guarantees
    the
    right of law-abiding citizens to keep and bear the arms of their
    choice. I
    am strongly opposed to any limitations on the United States
    Constitution's
    Second Amendment rights of law-abiding gun owners. While no one
    condones
    the purchase and use of guns by felons or other high-risk individuals
    to
    perpetrate any crime, we must not improperly hamper the right of
    law-abiding citizens to bear or purchase arms.

    As a member of the House Judiciary Committee, which has primary
    jurisdiction over gun control legislation, you may be assured that I
    will
    continue to monitor this legislation and will certainly keep your
    thoughts
    in mind should H.R. 1096 come before me.

    As your Representative in Congress, I appreciate your input in this
    matter. As always, if I may be of assistance to you on this, or any
    other
    issue, please feel free to contact me in my Washington DC office at
    (202)
    225-6365 or online at http://randyforbes.house.gov. With kind personal
    regards, I am

    I think retsupt captured my thoughts exactly. You're lucky to have a rep like that.

    If 51% of the politicians grew "apendages", then we would never have to hear about McCarthy, Brady, Pelosi, Guiliani, etc again. There are lots of politicians out there that feel this way, but some of them are scared or whatever to show their support of 2A. They are more concerned what their party wants and voting with them or keeping their job to do the right thing. They need to realize that they were elected to represent us, not rule us. my .02 cents
    A person is justified in the use of deadly force, if such person reasonably believes deadly force is necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm to such person or a third person.

    This clear thinking man has my vote. Isn't Ron Paul the guy who just recently put his bid in to run for President.

    I got pretty much the same letter from him vis a vis National Park Carry

    March 23, 2007

    Thank you for contacting me with your concerns regarding National Park
    Service regulations pertaining to the possession of firearms in a national
    park. I appreciate your taking the time to share your thoughts on this
    matter with me.

    As you may know, NPS firearms regulations (36 CFR 2.4) state that
    firearms are not to be allowed on National Park land unless the firearm is
    rendered temporarily inoperable (ammunition separated from firearm) and
    stored in a manner that prevents ready use (i.e., trunk). According to a
    recent inquiry I made to the National Park Service, the background and
    training requirements for concealed firearms possession vary significantly
    from state-to-state and trying to achieve uniformity of concealed firearms
    issuance throughout all 390 parks would be nearly impossible and
    unenforceable.

    The Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution reads: "the right of the
    people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." While others may
    disagree, the plain language of this Amendment guarantees the right of
    law-abiding citizens to keep and bear the arms of their choice. I am
    strongly opposed to limitations on the United States Constitution's Second
    Amendment rights of law-abiding gun owners. While no one condones the
    purchase and use of guns by felons or other high-risk individuals to
    perpetrate any crime, we must not improperly hamper the right of
    law-abiding citizens to bear or purchase arms.

    As a member of the House Judiciary Committee, which has primary
    jurisdiction over gun control legislation, you may be assured that I will
    keep your thoughts in mind should legislation pertaining to the right to
    carry firearms in our national parks come before me.

    As your Representative in Congress, I appreciate your input in this
    matter. As always, if I may be of assistance to you on this, or any other
    issue, please feel free to contact me in my Washington DC office at (202)

    I have known Randy for several years. You can count on him. And the fact that he is a House Judiciary member means that HR 1022 (the new AWB) will come before him as well. I have already contacted him by phone to talk about that one.

    He always seemed like a good guy to me. I "met" him a few times when he had his Dad in the ER. Just wasn't the time to talk politics.
