    Done and my "personal note"

    "I oppose Sen. Feinstein's New Version of the Federal Assault Weapons Ban because treating a nation of 314 million as if they were all like one criminally insane madman who committed one atrocity is indefensible, unworkable, and uses the corpses of the children of Newtown as a platform for Senator Feinstein's own private agenda she's advanced herself with for 20 years. "

    Done

    My note:
    I oppose Sen. Feinstein's New Version of the Federal Assault Weapons Ban because the Second Amendment is not a matter of convenience, to be disregarded at the whim of any lawmaker who has a personal anti-gun agenda. We the people of the US have the absolute right to own, buy, sell, and keep the weapons she wants to ban. We have the right to defend ourselves the best way we know how against criminals and any other threat that rises to challenge the liberty of America. Reducing the capabilities of law abiding gun owners only serves to strengthen those who disregard law and order in the first place.

    Voted in both. I've already sent my Congressman and my Senators an extensive message concerning these issues but will send another after voting in the Mayor's poll (I didn't take advantage of their offer to forward it for me):

    [begin letter]
    I recently voted in a poll with the quite-biased options of voting for or against "Common Sense Legislation to End Gun Violence" (here: https://www.popvox.com/bills/us/113/x101).

    I oppose the so-called "Common Sense Legislation to End Gun Violence" cited in this poll because...
    There is no Common Sense in the legislation being proposed in this poll. The recommendations cited represent ideas that have repeatedly failed to have any positive effect on gun violence.

    I favor common sense approaches to violence which will have some possibility of exerting control over the perpetrators of the violence and will oppose any legislator at any level whose ideas would result in further restriction of law-abiding citizen's rights with no possibility of having a positive effect on violence.

    To repeat; I am For, and will support, any action which will help reduce violence in our society. I see none proposed associated with this poll.

    I am against any action which serves only to restrict rights and does nothing to help solve the problem, and will work hard to replace such public servants who advocate the same.
    [end letter]


    Don't know how much these things help, but the letters to our elected public servants can't hurt.

    I don't know how much our Congresscritters will listen to their constituents, but I answered both polls also.

    Wow! This is absolutely the best punch lead I've read on the entire issue, and I have been on many forums and freedom sites operating coast-to-coast.

    The clarity of the statement stings like a slap even when you're on the right side of this issue; and we should be slapped, as a nation, for allowing any politicians ground to use such tragedy as a means of manipulation.

    I did my duty and voiced my opinion in all the polls, the following is the message I sent to my officials regarding gun free school zones, feel free to use it if you like.

    I support H.R. 133 ("To repeal the Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990 and amendments to that Act.") because...I support this bill because gun free zones do nothing to protect the innocent they were designed to protect, but instead provide venues for criminals to commit unspeakable acts in which they know that no law abiding citizen will be armed and therefore there will be no one with the means to stop them.
