although I'll be voting for Kevin Brady's replacement out here in the burbs,
a friend of mine pulled this off a Houston newsgroup, thought you inner-loopers might find it interesting:


One of the guys posting to the tx.guns newsgroup had written to
Congressman Gene Green inre the Assault Weapons Ban Sunset next
September. Below is the respons he got from the Congressman.

The reference to Senator Kaye Bailey Huthison (aka BigHair) is inre a
letter some had received from her saying she was going to study the

Just as an example of a counterpoint to Senator Hutchinson's letter,
let me share the letter I just received today from Rep. Gene Green:

Dear Mr. McGrew:

Thank you for contacting me regarding your opposition to the
semi-automatic weapons ban in the 1994 Crime bill. I appreciate
hearing your views on this issue.

Under Texas law we have the right to protect ourselves or our property
in self-defense. I am opposed to restricting law abiding citizens'
access to firearms. Gun control proposals may be well intentioned
when the aim is to reduce crime, but these laws simply do not work.
Criminals continue to gain access to guns, and restricting the ability
of law-abiding citizens to defend themselves is not a solution to our
overall crime problem. As a result, I will not support efforts in
Congress to extend the semi-automatic weapons ban when it sunsets next

He was a city councilman many years ago.

Senator Hutchinson has not yet honored me with a response to my AW ban letters/emails etc.

Can you copy her letter in that thread? It sounds like she may need some extra encouragement.

I know Senator Cornyn is onboard with us.

Bartholomew_Roberts it has been my experience in the past that it will be a cold day in hell before she responds. On much of anything. Phil Graham and Ralph Hall would respond with at least a blue form letter to almost anything you sent them but I have never had a reply of any type from the former UT Cheerleader. Period.
