While it is true that our world is facing problems with crime and violence, (basically just about the same as it’s almost always been anyway), “Banning Guns”, “Making Guns Illegal”, or even just “Harder to Get”, is not the answer. Criminals will still find ways of brandishing or creating their own guns and weapons, such as, assembling the ever infamously known “Ghost Gun” piece by piece. And since these “Ghost Guns” can be assembled so easily in the privacy of one’s home, or anywhere else, they are impossible to track. This means that inevitably your new law systems with all this new protocol, and new proposals pertaining to guns are doomed for failure. All this would do is hinder innocent sportsmen, home defenders, as well as other responsible gun owners. The bottom line is it does more harm than good, and furthermore, “I state to anyone who would listen, that this could potentially cost more lives, and cause more deaths”. If you are responsible, rational, reasonable, or humane, I implore you to do the right thing. The real answer to these problems are more police, security in more places, and stricter enforcement of the laws already in place. Please consider this for yourselves, and the American People.

Yours Truly,

Ian M. Cavaletto

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 Patriot Voices and conservative patriots nationwide in support of the Second Amendment and against efforts to implement "universal background checks."
