Regarding any possible new firearms laws, restrictions or bans – Vote No!
It is a proven fact that restrictive gun control laws and bans do not work – look at Chicago with the highest murder rate in the country, despite the fact that they have the strictest guns laws in the country.
More gun laws and bans will not stop crime, murder or mass killings like the one in Sandy Hook. All new laws, restrictions and bans would do is make current law-a-biding citizens like you and I into criminals and cause crime and murder rates to go up. That is a proven fact. For example look at what happened in Australia after implementing their ill-informed “assault weapons” ban - crime and murder rates saw a sharp and steady increase….
The media blame the AR-15 rifle for what happened at Sandy Hook while seemingly forgetting that it was a man pulling the trigger. Why are they so focused on the rifle? It seems that they (the media) want us to believe that the rifle walked into the school of its own ability and started firing.
If you watched the news coverage during and after the Sandy Hook murders closely, you’ll remember that the AR-15 rifle was reported as being found in the murders car for the first several days after the shooting then the media story suddenly changed putting the rifle inside the school and as the main weapon used by the shooter.
Don’t you find that strange? I’m not sure that the rifle was even used… As you know the media can and often does have its own agenda…
Anyway, he or any other crazy murderer intent on killing a room full of people or children could just as easily have used a pump-action shotgun loaded with 00-buckshot. Or a .38 caliber revolver with two or three speed loaders for quickly reloading the revolver.
Even if there was a way to magically make every one of the estimated 300,000,000 firearms that are in the United States disappear (there isn’t) someone intent on doing something so dreadful as murdering someone or even a room full children (or adults) will find a way to do it.
Remember Timothy James “Tim” McVeigh who detonated a truck bomb in front of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City on April 19, 1995 killing 168 people. These crazies will find a way to kill and the method that they choose could be even more devastation in the number of lives lost than if they had used a gun.
But I’m sure that you already know all of this – anyway, I’ve talked to a lot of folks in our district and they have all said that they are against any new gun laws, restrictions or bans.
To vote yes for any new gun laws, restrictions or bans would be committing political suicide in this district come re-election time.
Say no to any and all new gun laws, restrictions or bans of any type. Vote No and I’ll press the button beside your name in the voting booth come next election. Thanks.
