    This is part of a response (the meat) from Florida Senato Bill Nelson.
    He voted Yes on the extension of the AWB.

    It's all about the children...

    Hey, I got that one too.....

    Was this the whole text?:


    Dear {fallingblock}

    Thank you for contacting me regarding S. 1805, the Protection of
    Lawful Commerce in Arms Act.

    As you know, S. 1805 seeks to prohibit third-party civil
    liability
    actions against gun manufacturers, distributors, dealers, and importers
    when guns are misused. Similar legislation (H.R. 1036) was introduced
    and
    passed in the House. During the recent Senate debate, several
    amendments
    were offered and passed, including a 10-year extension of the assault
    weapons ban currently set to expire on September 13. Language was also
    added to require that child safety locks or storage devices be sold
    with
    all handguns, and that criminal background checks are performed at gun
    shows where at least 75 guns are sold. Despite intense debate of this
    legislation, it failed on final passage. Separate senate bills may be
    considered regarding each of these amendments.

    While I support the constitutional right to bear arms, I also
    support efforts to reduce gun violence and promote firearms safety.
    Every effort must be made to ensure that our children, and society at large, are protected from firearms violence. I appreciate your letter. Your
    communication helps me serve you better in the Senate.


    Sincerely,
    Bill Nelson

    Looks like we all got the "canned" response letter. At least we know we're working together, by contacting our senators I mean.

    P.S. - I'm right up the road from Orange Park. Probly 2 hours from Orlando. We'll have to set up a shoot or lunch sometime.
