Some days back, when voting on the Feinstein
Make-It-Illegal-To-Possess-A-Modern-Firearm ‘Assault Weapon’ Ban bill seemed imminent, and Senator McCain was supporting measures designed to stop the filibuster measure against it (?!), I both called the offices of both AZ senators and sent them E-mails expressing my concerns and disapproval of both measures. And ANY and ALL ‘gun’ control measures.
(Have you contacted YOUR Senators, yet?)
The same day, Senator Flake sent me an Email confirmation of my communication, along with verbiage stating he was not in support of any such measure.
Senator McCain’s office response? (crickets – chirp-chirp-chirp)
Until, a couple of days ago! I finally received a form letter from Senator McCain’s office. It says in part:
On January 16, 2013, President Obama and his administration introduced a twenty-three point plan which lays out both executive and legislative proposals that would attempt to prevent future violence. As the details of the President’s proposals become more clear, I look forward to reviewing them, and working with my colleagues to find sensible solutions that respect the Second Amendment but also help us prevent these type of horrific events from ever happening again.
While I am an unwavering supporter of the Second Amendment, please know that I will seriously consider all reasonable public safety legislation…
The RINO is charging, yet again! When is he ever going to learn that more control simply means more control? And that acceding to the demands of the ‘reasonable-sensible solutions’ folks is simply more tyranny for the law-abiding?
There was a time that Republican meant smaller government. Of course, this was before a P.O.W. and veteran came forward to claim Barry Goldwater’s seat in the United States Senate.
Barry would be outraged.
