Any suggestions to the letter before I seal the envelope?

* I did steal one paragraph from the letter by the Linn County Sheriff in Oregon.*


Dear Mr. Curry,

I am writing to ask your opinion on the current political fight over the 2nd Amendment in Washington D.C. and what your position is on the issues at hand.

In the wake of the recent criminal events, politicians are attempting to exploit the deaths of innocent victims by advocating for laws that would prevent honest, law abiding Americans from possessing certain firearms and ammunition magazines. We are Americans. We must not allow, nor shall we tolerate, the actions of criminals, no matter how heinous the crimes, to prompt politicians to enact laws that will infringe upon the liberties of responsible citizens who have broken no laws.

As I am sure you are well aware of, the State of New York just passed sweeping new bans on firearms and magazines. Magazines were limited to seven rounds, which affects nearly every firearm with a removable magazine. Even the most popular target/ plinking rifle, the Ruger 10/22, has a standard magazine that last week was legal, and this week makes you a felon.

Several Sheriff’s across the country have publicly stated that they would not enforce any Executive Order or Act passed by Congress that they deem unconstitutional. A few have even gone so far as to vow to arrest any federal officials attempting to enforce any unconstitutional confiscations or bans.

I would like to ask you, your opinions on several issues:
- What is your stance on an “assault weapons ban”?
- What is your opinion on magazine capacities?
- If any Unconstitutional Executive Order or Act Passes Congress will you and your Office stand with the rights of the people?

I would like to add that I think you run a fantastic Sheriff’s Office, with deputies that seem to represent the good, honest, morals that the people of Shelby County have come to expect.

Sincerely,

I believe the NY law turns lawful citizens into misdemeanants, not felons.

I use "criminal" whenever I'm not certain of whether a felony or misdemeanor results.

Criminal is what I ended up changing it to. Letter is in Mail.

Also sent an email to my local police chief.
