A guest letter to Congressman (from an old friend)

Congressman Baird,

I’m writing to ask you to please oppose ANY “anti gun bill” that includes ANY “gun ban” to repeal the Second Amendment to the Constitution.

I as a natural born citizen of the United States, do hereby demand that you vote “NO” on every unconstitutional bill to ban or confiscate the legally owned firearms of millions of law-abiding Americans. This includes the elimination of Gun Shows as proposed by the Obama Administration and Mr. Holder.

The founding fathers knew exactly what they were doing when they wrote the Second Amendment – they were giving the people the right to defend themselves against all threats – including the threat of an oppressive government.

Americans will be highly skeptical of any diversionary talk of “waiting periods”, “background checks” or “gun registration” and additional promises to enforce any new deeply flawed approaches.

If history is an accurate guide, banning guns would only embolden criminals and encourage crime leaving American’s defenseless and allow the uncontrolled and unacceptable to happen, making family security even worse than it is now.

Such legislation is a bad idea because it creates armed criminals to prey upon law abiding citizens. Further, it would be impossible to administer and even more unlikely to be enforced. Gun control is about controlling people, not making people safe.

That’s what is at stake here. Our freedom. Our future.

The most important job you have to do right now is to protect U.S. citizens Second Amendment Rights. Like millions of Americans, I’m sick and tired of the “inside the beltway” politics on this issue; I will NOT listen weasel words or slick excuses.

This issue is BLACK AND WHITE – there are no shades of gray! We need you to protect Americans RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS! Please oppose any gun bill, particularly if they include any gun ban provisions. I will be watching your vote on this issue very closely. Thank you.
