    Thumbs up Texas Senator Responds!

    I received this today. Makes me like Texas!

    Dear Mr. Rock and Glock:

    Thank you for contacting me about federal firearms laws. I appreciate having the benefit of your comments on this matter.

    It is essential to safeguard the law-abiding citizen's right to own and use firearms designed for legitimate purposes such as hunting, target shooting, collecting, and self protection. Restricting this right runs counter to the intent of our Founding Fathers, who expressly guaranteed that citizens would retain the right to keep and bear arms.

    As a former Texas Supreme Court Justice and Attorney General, I have firsthand knowledge of crime-fighting policies that work, and I believe that citizens' Second Amendment rights should not be restricted because of the actions of criminals. Rather, we must respect the rights of law-abiding citizens and focus our attention on the source of violent crime: criminals who use firearms to commit crimes. I believe that strictly enforcing the law and meting out longer sentences for career criminals and those who use firearms when committing crimes will reduce crime much more effectively than gun or equipment bans.

    I appreciate the opportunity to represent Texans in the United States Senate, and you may be certain that I will continue working with my colleagues to uphold our Second Amendment rights. Thank you for taking the time to contact me.

    Sincerely,

    JOHN CORNYN
    United States Senator

    Makes me want to move to Texas. We need more of these sensable people representing us.

    God Blessed Texas...
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    Cool Senator Cornyn

    I have the utmost respect for our Senator Cornyn. He has been a great voice against illegal alien immigration.
    If I remember correctly, I have heard there is a dem in Houston who will try to unseat him this year.
    IMO, it would be a great loss to the citizens of Texas were the Senator to lose.
    What I fear the most is the illegal vote in Texas.
    The Republicans will have on the primary ballot a bill as to whether or not one must show citizenship ID at the ballot box to vote. The dems do not have anything similiar because they do not want the requirement enforced.

    And it was our other Texas Senator, Kay Bailey Hutchison, that led the charge for the Amicus Brief submitted to SCOTUS in Heller!

    Is the Democrat in Houston that lady that is virulently anti-self-defense?

    What a team, eh! Hutchinson and Cornyn.

    The letter above was precipitated by a "Thank You" note I sent to both on their staunch 2A positions.

    I'm extremely jealous of you. Your Senators are so much better than mine.

    No, I think it was a man and I believe he is pro illegal alien immigration.
