I was on the GOA website and sent Tommy boy one of them form letters about the pertaining frivolous lawsuits against gun manufacturers and the slimeball was kind enough to send me a reply of political doubletalk that says nothing firm.

Thank you for contacting me regarding S. 659/H.R. 1036, the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act. I appreciate hearing from you.
As you may know, this legislation is designed to strengthen protections against lawsuits that seek to recover damages from the industry for harm caused by criminal misuse of firearms. I share the goal of eliminating frivolous lawsuits, and support legislation to provide a reasonable level of legal protection to gun manufacturers and dealers. I also believe, however, that we must be very careful that, in doing so, we do not give legal immunity to businesses that knowingly put weapons in the hands of criminals, or that operate in clear violation of our nation's firearms laws.
As we work to protect legitimate businesses from unfair lawsuits, I want to be sure that we do not create a situation where gun dealers cannot be held accountable for failing to keep track of guns in their inventory that are later used in crimes, or where manufacturers are not legally liable for product defects that result in accidental deaths. As you may know, this legislation has been passed by the House of Representatives, and is currently awaiting action by the Senate Judiciary Committee. I look forward to working to foster a dialogue between representatives of all involved parties so that we can produce a bill that balances the legitimate desire to discourage frivolous lawsuits against responsible manufacturers and dealers, and the need to keep guns out of the hands of criminals and children.
Again, thank you for contacting me. Please stay in touch.
Here's a thought - why don't you have yer little brudder, or somebody else that you know and trust, send yer esteemed Senator another letter, but this time with the opposite point of view of the one that you sent. Might be very interesting to see what the reply would be.
I like 280's idea about the opposite view. when he reponds you can compare the 2, you know he's gonna be sittin on the fence, but which side does he have his boney butt shifted to. Then send both letters to the GOP or who ever his opponent is. Let'em us it for campaign propaganda.
Great News, I recently heard that John Thune is gonna run against tom daschle in the next election. I can only hope that this is true so that I can give my father-in-law a great big rasberry. And more importantly get that little worm out of office.
