In light of the shooting yesterday I hit up both of my Senators and my Congressman to tell them hands off the 2nd Amendment. Here is what I sent this morning.
In the wake of the horrific act by a depraved individual in Uvalde, Texas the usual suspects wasted no time in coming out to demand law-abiding Americans give up our rights because of the actions of a mentally ill monster. We are writing you to express that for us there is no acceptable gun control legislation and we ask that you stand in opposition to the inevitable demands to violate our rights.As is always the case there will be an enormous amount of pressure being exerted by interest groups on our elected representatives demanding “common sense gun control” and “compromise”, a word that in this context means we give up our rights and in return we are told we have to give up more of our rights in the future.We speak not as lobbyists but as constituents and citizens of the state of Indiana. The 2nd Amendment to the United States Constitution and Article 1, Section 32 of the Constitution of the State of Indiana are clear that the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. This is a non-negotiable position for us and our expectation is that our elected representatives in Washington will honor their oath of office and heed the opinions of the people of this state, and not the demands of special interest groups funded by leftist billionaires.We will be closely monitoring the actions of Congress in the days to come and urge you to uphold the Constitution by rejecting any infringements on our rights.Thank you for your time and attention
