Dear Mr. Brown:
Thank you for contacting me regarding the recent proposal to require each state to honor concealed weapon permits issued by other States.
I support the constitutional right to bear arms. I grew up on a ranch in the Florida countryside and have been a hunter since I was a boy.
As for the legislation on concealed weapon permits, I believe that each State should be free to decide whether to recognize another State’s permit. The Federal government shouldn’t force a State with tougher permit requirements--attendance at a gun safety course, for example--to honor permits from States with less stringent requirements. Those decisions are best left to the States.
You can be sure that I will keep your thoughts in mind whenever firearms issues are considered by the Senate. I appreciate your letter. Your communications helps me serve you better.

I gave up writing to Bill Nelson. He has consistently sold the state out. He is Obama's waterboy. Time for him to be voted out.

Sen. Nelson is a nimrod who constantly spews toro feces...but I mean that in a nice way.

Another one of those "I will keep your thoughts in mind" pieces of crap. The same kind I get from Sen. Jeff Bingaman (D)NM.

I hate when politicians, whenever discussing gun rights, bring up hunting. Either they support hunters or they used to hunt or whatever. The 2A is not about hunting. It is about freedom and security.
