Dear (deleted), Thank you for taking the time to contact me to express your opposition to HR 3182, legislation to regulate certain 50 caliber sniper weapons in the same manner as machine guns and other firearms. I appreciate hearing from you. As you may know, I am a strong advocate of our right to keep and bear arms. I believe we should focus on enforcing the laws that are already on the books and not on further restricting the rights of law-abiding gun owners. You can be assured of my continued support for the Second Amendment. Again, thank you for taking the time to contact me, and please do not hesitate to call on me whenever I may be of service to you in the future. Sincerely, Jim Turner (dem) TS [X] At least its not bad news.

I believe he's legit. I've talked to him personally. He has helped me on other matters and I trust him. I posted this to show that legal political action can work. I won't everyone to contact his congressman & senators. TS [X]

Fine. Go ahead and go turn in your weapons NOW, since everything is useless. (hypothetical hyperbole) Or go shoot your representative for not representing you. I can't decide on which side of that equation you're on, but seems to me you should just go turn in your weapons. At least I talked with my congressman and he told me the above. If he doesn't deliver, I'll try to get another who will represent my interests, which happen to be the true foundation of this country. And Spectre, what else is a bolt action .50? A CQB weapon? Look at any SGN, that's how they're represented by "us." TS [X]

What do you think would happen if I wrote to my congress critter about HR3182. Well if she told the truth, this is what her letter would look like: --------------------------------------------------------- Dear mejames, Thank you for notifying me of your opposition to HR 3182, one in a series of laws leading to the total ban of all guns in America. I appreciate hearing from you, as it will make rounding up all gun owners much easier when the time comes. As you may know, I don't care about the Constitution, and your so called "rights" mean nothing to me. I believe that elite socialist Democrats, such as myself, are above the law, and we should focus on enforcing the laws only against people like you. You can be assured that I will not rest until all law-abiding citizens subjugated. Again, thank you for taking the time to contact me, there is no need to call as you name has been added to my list of potential terrorist. My personal JBTs will be at your door shotly to get a list of your guns and the names of other gun owners you know. Sincerely, Diane Fineswine P.S. Please have on clean underwear as my JBTs will be conducting a full body cavity search.

Is it me, or does every response from a politician seem to come from the same damn form letter? -Thank you for taking time to contact me... -I am a strong advocate of the right to keep and bear arms... -Enforce laws we already have... -Support law-abiding gun owners... etc, etc, etc.

It's a form letter, nothing more. I get the same one back from my congress critter's [republicans]. Just goes to show they never see this stuff. [smoke]
