Dear Donald: One of the rights specifically protected in our bill of rights, second only to the freedom of speech is that "...the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." The Constitution is clear about this. At your request I have signed on as a cosponsor to H.R. 1762 which would repeal the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act. The Brady Act was passed before I was elected and has not helped keep guns away from criminals. In fact, at times, it has kept law-abiding citizens from buying a gun when they wish. Unfortunately, this bill did not pass the House in the last Congress. I strongly oppose this law and will work to repeal it in order to give law-abiding gun owners the rights they are being denied. Warmest regards, Zach Wamp Member of Congress

I've always liked the Hon. Zach Wamp (the name simply cannot be forgotten) whenever he appears on the talking heads circuit. He's always right on during the minute speeches on the House Floor! I would say that he's a libertarian Republican, just as Texas' own Hon. Ron Paul. Eric The(And,Ahem...Me)Hun[>]:)]

When I wrote those type of letters I always worded them to the effect, "you are not alone in your concerns, countless constituents have contacted me to voice their support (or opposition) to H.R. XXXX. I have heard your words and I embrace them. Rest assured that I will support/oppose/co-sponsor this legislation when it reached the floor." Sorry, just a pet peeve, but if you post the member's address I'll consider making a donation to his campaign even though I live in the PRofNY.

Yeah, I've had better form letters, and I agree that this is a clumsy attempt at seeming to be at one with the people.

What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly; it is the dearness only that gives everything value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price on its goods.
