    I'm not big into politics, but the ease of emailing Senators and Reps. have encouraged me to be more active. Anyway, I emailed Blanch Lambert and was pleasantly surprised by her response.
    _________________________________________________
    Thank you for writing to me about the Protection of Lawful Commerce in
    Arms Act (S. 659).

    I am pleased to inform you that I am a co-sponsor of this legislation. I
    do not feel gun manufacturers should be held liable for the reckless and
    illegal actions of third parties. Furthermore, I have serious
    reservations about attempts by some to impose legal restrictions through
    court decisions that could not be achieved legislatively by elected
    officials.

    There are many firearms in this country today, yet only a tiny fraction
    of them have ever been used in the commission of a crime. I believe it is
    the intent of the user, not the gun, that determines whether that gun will
    be used in a crime. There is no evidence that this bill would do anything
    to curb gun violence in this country. This bill will protect law-abiding
    American businesses from having to spend time and money defending
    frivolous lawsuits.

    Again, thank you for taking the time to write to me. If you need
    anything further, please do not hesitate to contact me.


    Sincerely,



    Blanche L. Lincoln

    It is nice when they respond. :)

    I'm going to move this to Legal and Political.

    That would be great if I could get responses like that from Murray and Cantwell (senators from WA state). Instead I get crap about "it's for the children". Oh well, I feel better after I write it.
