We feel that ANY legislation against citizen firearms violates a well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free State that shall not be infringed. Banning any legal current firearms will substantially weaken the citizen army’s ability to defend the United States against foreign invasion, should the U.S. armed forces be unable to perform this duty. We believe that any law prohibiting any currently legal firearm puts the freedom and very survival of the United States of America at risk.
The federal government has enough paper work to currently take care of any legal issues concerning weapons. The "Grandfather Clause" and fingerprinting is just another hurdle in the gun purchasing process that is ineffective against any kind of real crime prevention. Plus, most gun owners eventually get a concealed weapons permit which already collects fingerprints and does a background check at the applicant's expense.
Let’s look at the logistical ramifications of another magazine ban. Over the ten years of the ban, we never ran out. Not even close. Magazines are cheap and basic. Most of them are pieces of sheet metal with some wire. That’s it. Magazines are considered disposable so most gun people accumulate a ton of them. All it did was make magazines more expensive, ticked off law abiding citizens, and didn’t so much as inconvenience a single criminal.
Criminals and psychopaths do not care about laws and regulations. The only people that this legislation will hurt is the law abiding voter.
Would you feel safer having a weapon to defend yourself or a new law that takes away that possibility?
As my Honorable Senator, please consider this a request to vote NO for ANY type of gun control legislation.
