Protect 2nd Amendment

To: All members of the 113th United States Congress

I, the undersigned, a lover of liberty, an American patriot, and defender of the right to bear arms, do hereby implore you, our elected representatives, to protect our Second Amendment rights and stop efforts aimed at "universal background checks."

Recent incidents of heartbreaking gun violence have brought the issue of gun safety into the spotlight.  Putting further restrictions on law abiding citizen-gun owners is not the answer.

We have gun laws in place, we need to work hard to enforce existing laws, not create new laws that do nothing to deter criminals and madmen.

The Second Amendment was drafted to protect our First Amendment rights, and according to my First Amendment right to petition, I expect review of this request, and will hold you accountable for your response to it.

Finally, I do hereby pledge to stand with Rick Santorum, Patriot Voices, and conservative patriots nationwide in support of the Second Amendment and against efforts to implement "universal background checks."

If all law abiding people had guns people would be less likely to shoot them in fear of mutually assured destruction of both gun owners

Please oppose by your vote gun control and gun control related legislation this includes motions to proceed and cloture votes that would likely result in gun control/gun control related legislation proceeding. Please also oppose by your vote the following items the poorly written plastic gun ban (this ban could be abused to grab more guns not made entirely of metal.), the expanded or universal background checks, the U.N. arms trade treaty, anti-gun related executive orders, and anti-gun judges. Please also oppose by your vote any attempt to deny, restrict, regulate or tax guns, magazines and ammunition. Please stand strong and steadfast in unwavering support of our entire U.S. Constitution that you have sworn to uphold and defend this includes our 2nd amendment. Our founding Fathers wisely sought the counsel of the Lord our God when they formed our incredible U.S. Constitution their wording of our 2nd amendment (the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.) this wording is explicitly clear. Our founding Fathers writing’s supporting the intent of our 2nd amendment are also just as explicitly clear. England had similar gun rights in their English bill of rights these rights were slowly compromised and regulated virtually out of existence. Please never ever in the disguise of moderation allow our 2nd amendment rights and freedoms to be compromised, restricted or denied. Thomas Jefferson’s Legal Commonplace Book has a quote from Cesare Beccaria an eighteenth century criminologist that says " Laws that forbid the carrying of arms tend to disarm only those neither determined nor inclined to commit crimes. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage rather than prevent homocide" gun owners of america website where anyone member or not can send really good editable letter emails to Congress on issues presently goin on in Congress Thank you respectfully William & Susan Liggett

i believe in the 2nd amendment. I believe it helps us to defend ourselves against people who want to take what we worked hard to have. plus it protects us from our own government and makes it more scared of us than us of it. we should never have to be scared of our own government taking what we have.

The Constitution and the Bill of Rights should never be diluted in any way, shape or form, else we lose our exceptionalism, else those who have bled and perished for our freedom will have died in vain. Let it never be so.
