Dear M-Cameron,

Thank you for contacting me about gun control legislation.

Like millions of people across the country, I was heartbroken by the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School last December. I do not know how to explain the deaths of twenty innocent children or why six heroic teachers had to make the ultimate sacrifice for their students.

I also grew up in family that used guns. My older brothers hunted, and I learned to shoot when I was in grade school. I have great respect for the role that hunting and guns play in many communities across the country and believe there is a place for responsible gun ownership in our society. But I also don't think anyone needs military-grade assault weapons to hunt or Rambo-style high capacity magazines to protect their family from intruders.

That's why I support a comprehensive set of reforms to reduce gun violence. I strongly support reauthorizing the expired ban on federal assault weapons and high capacity magazines. I also support closing the loopholes in federal background checks for gun shows and private sales. The President has put forward a slate of proposals to help address gun violence and gun safety, and I support those efforts as well.

There is no one way to stop gun violence, and there is certainly room for disagreement on the steps that we should take. But I hope that we can agree that we have a responsibility to ourselves and to our children to take the steps we can to stop the violence. I believe that a reauthorized assault weapons ban and the President's proposals represent a responsible path forward. I will keep your thoughts in mind as I continue to look for other steps we can take to protect our children and families from these terrible tragedies. I believe that is my responsibility as a United States Senator -- and as a mother and grandmother.

Sincerely,
Elizabeth Warren
United States Senator

pretty much the standard "I support Hunters, but not gun owners" routine....

i especially loved the bit about "Rambo-style high capacity magazines"....that one made me chuckle.


and apparently Warren is also a sponsor of Feinsteins proposed AWB...

not that i think it will do much good, but does anyone have any ideas on how to respond?

She will support any and all gun control offered. She's a crazy radical lib who would vote to suspend the 2A if given the chance. Her election was a major disappointment. Of course she uses the "I'm a gun owner, too..." that finishes with "but we need to throw all guns in the ocean." They think saying they own guns somehow fools us.

Lying ... OK, can't say what I am thinking.
