and I will not have some woman who proclaims the evil of an inanimate object, yet carries one, tell me I may not have one.
I am not your subject. I am the man who keeps you free. I am not your servant. I am the person whom you serve. I am not your peasant. I am the flesh and blood of America.
I am the man who fought for my country. I am the man who learned. I am an American. You will not tell me that I must register my semi-automatic because of the actions of some evil man.
I will not be disarmed to suit the fear that has been established by the media and your misinformation campaign against the American public.
We, the people, deserve better than you.

Apparently "gun grabber" is correct.
I saw this earlier. Good for him! Here is mine sent the other day.
Dear Ms. Feinstien,
I am writing you today to let you know how disappointed I am in the position you are taking against law abiding gun owners. Not letting a horrible tragedy go to waste you immediately took to the media and started your campaign against the rights of gun owners. You said and I quote “ we can’t allow the rights of the few overcome the safety of the majority”. ( had to rewind the DVR a couple times to make sure I heard you right) First off I should not have to remind a sitting Senator that the 2nd Amendment extends to all Americans with the exception of a few who couldn’t follow the law making them prohibited persons. Secondly you are eroding the rights of the majority over the actions of a few.
Your proposals will do nothing to end violence or prevent these tragedies. There are more guns now than ever before and yet violent crime is down. The last AWB really did nothing to reduce violence. The problem is a gun is just a tool and you always fail to address the reason these troubled individuals choose to be violent.
According to statistics there are about 10,000 homicides a year. Which is about the same number of people killed in drunk driving accidents. Yet I have not heard one proposal about banning alcohol or cars. Could this be because we blame the behavior of consuming alcohol? Why should guns be any different?
If you really want to do something meaningful for the lives of our children you and your fellow legislators should spend your time figuring out how to reduce our debt and get the country’s fiscal house in order. I fear what the future holds for my children and future grandchildren as you continually erode the rights of Americans while spending us into poverty.
