Dear Mr. A,
Thank you for contacting me about United Nations Small Arms Treaty. It is an honor to represent the people of Southwest Washington, and I appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts with me.
The U.N. Small Arms Treaty seeks to prevent international civil conflicts by regulating the international trade of some guns. I share the concerns many folks have expressed about how this treaty infringes on our constitutional rights. However, as you may know, the Senate must approve the U.N. Small Arms Treaty, not the House.
I took an oath to uphold the Constitution and I intend to fulfill my responsibility. Part of this duty includes ensuring that any actions of the government do not infringe upon our civil liberties outlined in the Bill of Rights. Going forward, I will be working to ensure these rights are protected.
Thank you again for contacting me on this important issue. I invite you to visit my website at www.HerrreraBeutler.house.gov
for additional information or to sign up to be kept up to date on this important issue. Please do not hesitate to contact me if I can be of assistance.
