* will Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen act to keep assault weapons out of the hands of homicidal maniacs

Florida Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen

see previous post …

* thoughts on the 2nd amendment … who can and cannot carry arms? what sort of weapons can be carried by private citizens? where and when can arms be carried and where and when not?

******

I received the following email from my Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen …

The weekend’s murder of innocents in Tucson, Arizona and the attempted assassination of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords will be forever remembered as an American tragedy. This is a day the nation will deeply regret, mourning the dead, hoping the injured survive; a day when we deplore the senseless violence of this evil act.

the Congresswoman’s email

had not one single word

about one single action

she proposed to take

as a result of the Tucson murders

This was my response …

I appreciate your sentiments regarding the recent horrors in Tucson. But we need action as well as words. We need our Congress to consider what can be done to keep assault weapons out of the hands of homicidal maniacs. Will you be among those who will stand up to the ALL GUNS FOR ALL CITIZENS approach of the NRA?

    I am happy to do so Lew but like every other time we’ve had such tragedies, a little time will pass and the gun laws will go unstrengthened. Very disgusting that this country continues on this insistance on a literal reading of the Second Amendment. The NRA has a nonsensical hold over our congress and in the minds of too many Americans.
