    Taking on bogie's activism challenge here, I had sent a short note to all of my congress critters back in February. Living in a liberal state, I expected to either not get anything back, or a form letter saying how they support "responsible" gun legislation.

    I had forgotten about this until today. Almost five months later I finally receive a response from Senator Chris Dodd. Here's what he had to say:
    Needless to say I was a bit miffed that it took almost 5 months to receive even a form letter. Not to mention the fact that the Virginia Tech massacre hadn't happened when I sent the note. Here was my response:

    I realize this e-mail won't go anywhere, and it'll probably be discarded or responded to in 5 months, but it made me feel better. I guess that's all that counts.

    I love it when they play the "we're trying to protect children" card. You can always tell they are lying when they start talking about the kids.

    I think you need to give his opponent a good long think in the next election.

    How many children under 12 die in bathtubs or 5 gallon pickle buckets?

    More to the point why does it matter? What does it have to do with the bill of rights.

    As soon as folks start talking apples and oranges its Bullpoop after that.

    More children die in swimming pools so does he want pool restrictions or pool safety? Politicos are just creepy people!

    Seriously, how many children really die each year? With all these child safety issues: playgrounds, Chinese toothpaste, sports accidents, being hit by cars. You'd think our world would be lacking for children, yet every Sunday, a good dozen of the little things, without fail, manage to scream their way though Mass. In fact, if children are seriously dying left and right, why is it there seems to be more and more of them everywhere I go? How come our schools are overcrowded if so many of these kids are being shot? And seriously, how many children really play with guns? I've only heard of this in rumor. I've never met or read in a newspaper of a kid shooting himself with his parents' gun. I'm not saying the aforementioned doesn't happen, I just think it's rather rare.

    trying to get a weasle like that to join the real world is like trying to teach a pig to fly. wastes your time and anoys the pig.

    Please lets not insult pigs by using them in analogies with politicians such as this.
