Response from Bob Latta:D



Dear (ol' scratch)



Thank you for contacting me with your support for Second Amendment rights. In order to make sound voting decisions, I need to hear from the constituents in the Fifth Congressional District. I appreciate you taking the time to contact me with your thoughts on this issue, as I know how important it is to you.



As a lifetime hunter and a competitor at the National Rifle and Pistol Championship matches at Camp Perry, I fully support our Second Amendment right to bear arms. The framework for the Constitution gives us the rights that we as Americans have in this country. During my time in the Ohio General Assembly, I was the House Co-Chair for the Ohio Sportsmen's Caucus. In addition, as Chairman of the House Criminal Justice Committee, I fought hard for the citizens of Ohio in assisting to pass Ohio's Conceal Carry legislation. Here in Congress, I am a Co-Chairman of the Congressional Sportsmen's Caucus, as well as being a co-sponsor of numerous pieces of legislation protecting our Second Amendment rights.



One of our Founding Fathers, Thomas Jefferson, once said "Laws that forbid the carrying of arms...disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes...Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man." Please be assured that as I continue to represent the Fifth Congressional District, I will continue to protect our Second Amendment rights.



It is my great honor to serve as your Member of Congress and it is my number one priority to represent you and the best interests of the Fifth Congressional District. Please do not hesitate to call, write, or e-mail me in the future with any of your concerns or questions. For federal-related issues, you may reach my Washington, D.C. office by phone at (202) 225-6405, or my District office at (800) 541-6446 for constituent services. I encourage you to visit my website at http://latta.house.gov where you can sign up for my e-newsletter and text message updates. The website also provides links to my YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and Flickr pages, as well as my blog, the Latta Letter, all of which will help bring my work in Washington, D.C. home to you.





Sincerely,

Bob Latta
Member of Congress

You must be from my neck of the woods. Bob's a good guy. I've known him most of my life. He lives not far from my parents in Bowling Green.
