Mr. President Bush, May 13, 2003
I am writing to you because Iíve been told that you listen to the people who vote. I have E-mailed you in the past, but this issue is too big to address with a few simple lines that are answered with a computer generated response.
The 1994 ďAssaultĒ weapons ban is due to sunset in 2004. There are some in political office who have introduced new legislation that supersedes and continues this grossly Unconstitutional infringement of my rights, as an AMERICAN. The old ban was bad enough, and I would like to see it sunset as designed. There is no reason to regulate the cosmetics and design of rifles and firearms, as it does not prevent crime. It does infringe on my Constitutional rights to bare arms.
We both could quote statistics from various studies, for and against, but they do not tell the truth of the matter. The truth is evident, My government wishes to regulate free people from their freedom. My family and I enjoy going to the target range and we also hunt on occasion, but this is not the purpose of baring arms. We have a given right to protect ourselves and I will not bow down to someone who wishes to take that right away.
I would like to extend an invitation to you or any Representatives / Senators, to join my family at our local range for some target shooting and discussion of our rights. I would like a response as how you intend to vote on this issue. Thank you.
Me (no I didn't put Bluetic at the end
