    Disappointed in both of the Georgia senators, looks like their email responses were both disingenuous.

    Boy am I PI$$ED!!!!

    I do not post alot, but, I have to post this. Below is a reply from Roger Wicker, Senator for Mississippi. :cuss::fire::mad:





    From: "Senator Roger Wicker" <DONOT_REPLY@wicker.senate.gov>
    Date: February 1, 2013 2:43:00 PM CST
    To: <redacted@gmail.com>
    Subject: Reply from Senator Roger Wicker




    Thank you for contacting me in opposition to proposals by President Obama and others to prohibit so-called "assault weapons." I am glad to have the benefit of your views on this important issue.



    Recently, the White House and congressional Democrats have put forward proposals for stricter gun control laws, including a ban on certain semiautomatic rifles, shotguns, and handguns. Since coming to Congress in 1995, I have been a strong and consistent defender of the Second Amendment. I have opposed efforts to impose gun restrictions on law-abiding citizens, and I do not feel more gun control laws are the answer to the problems confronting our nation. I believe tougher enforcement of existing laws is a more effective means of addressing crime.



    President Clinton signed the 1994 "assault weapons" ban into law before I was elected to Congress. The Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act prohibited the manufacture or importation of semiautomatic "assault weapons" and large-capacity ammunition feeding devices. The bill included a sunset provision limiting the duration of the law's authorization to 10 years. As a result, the ban on "assault weapons" expired on September 13, 2004. I do not support efforts to renew this ban.



    Be assured I will continue to defend our constitutional right to bear arms. Please do not hesitate to contact me if I can ever be of assistance.





    With best wishes, I am


    Sincerely yours,
    Roger F.Wicker
    U.S. Senate

    ggb3,
    I would be livid also. Just goes to show you how politicians give lip service to someone then sell them out. What a piece of "explicit removed". Coburn from Oklahoma is on my "explicit removed" list also. I will do my best to make sure he isn't elected next go round. Spineless cowards. All of them.

    What's everyone so upset about? This cloture vote is no big deal. Now if they get cloture of the filibuster on the final vote (in several weeks), that will be a big deal.

    JRH6856,
    I think it's that some senators are writing us telling us one thing and then voting another way. Maybe because they are afraid of big money operating against them in the next election like was promised. All that has to happen is for lies to be propagated and the damage will be done. And then some are voting because they are truely wanting to promote the lefts agenda.

    Tammy Baldwin of WI has always been a nut, no surprise there and Ron Johnson had my vote for life a while ago.

    Needed to post

    Hey all,
    I sent off another round of e-mails after I posted above. I very quickly received a reply and another this am. I felt it important to post Mr. Wicker's reply. I believe I may not have seen the forest through all the trees... Hopefully.

    Reply from Senator Roger Wicker

    Thank you for contacting me to express your support for the constitutional right of law-abiding Americans to keep and bear arms. I am glad to have the benefit of your views on this important issue.

    Since coming to Congress in 1995, I have consistently voted to protect our Second Amendment freedoms and will continue to do so. On April 11, 2013, I supported, along with 15 other Republican Senators, a procedural motion on debating S. 649, the so-called Safe Schools Act.

    I believe that S. 649 is deeply flawed legislation, and I oppose the measure. However, this vote signals the opening of a robust debate that will put the Senate on record regarding a basic constitutional right. Far from shrinking from it, I welcome such a discussion and believe it is long overdue.

    The Founding Fathers conceived of the U.S. Senate as the proper forum for public deliberation of this kind. Law-abiding gun owners should not be put on the defensive when it comes to a fundamental American freedom.

    In addition, contrary to the intent of the bill's authors, bringing this measure to the floor gives us the opportunity to vote to add provisions to strengthen gun rights, such as an amendment to protect veterans from unfair restrictions when purchasing a firearm. I would filibuster passage of a final bill that contained any increased gun restrictions or a weapons ban.

    I have worked to protect and preserve the Second Amendment. Rather than adding new laws and regulatory burdens, Congress should focus on ways to make existing laws more effective. The goal should be to increase safety and punish criminals – not unfairly hurt law-abiding gun owners.

    Be assured that as Congress considers gun control legislation I will continue to defend our right to bear arms. Please do not hesitate to contact me if I can ever be of assistance.

    With best wishes, I am

    Sincerely yours,

    Roger F. Wicker
    U.S. Senate

    We got what I expected from "Tricky Dicky" Durbin (D-IL) but I was disappointed to see relative new-comer Kirk (R-IL) vote for this PoS. :cuss: Either Kirk is a RINO or that stroke caused more damage than he thought. :fire::banghead:
