To Herr Blagojevich Regarding His Gun Ban Proposal

Originally published on this website July 18, 2000

RE: http://www.msnbc.com/local/WMAQ/24083.asp

Mr. Blagojevich,
Rod.Blagojevich@mail.house.gov

Let me see if I get this straight. Your plan is to ban certain guns because gangs supposedly use and prefer them over other types of guns.

OK. Now, what if that particular model of gun, the gun model that you think, at this point in time, is "gang preferred", is owned by a law-abiding citizen? Is that law-abiding citizen automatically a criminal just because he/she owns a gun that you think they shouldn't? How long will the prison term be for that law-abiding citizen just because they might own a "gang preferred" gun even though they have never been, or never will be, a gang member?

Once you get a ban, if you get such an un-Constitutional ban, on "pocket rocket" type of guns, what type will be next? Will it be shotguns because they have the capability of shooting more than 6 projectiles with every trigger pull, in your opinion? Will it be guns with under a 48 inch barrel because they are too concealable, in your opinion?

Where will it all end? Will it end once and for all with "your type" trying to confiscate ALL guns from "my type"? Isn't that how this country got started? Didn't the Colonists do the same thing to the Brits way back when? Is that your ultimate goal, to start another war? If that is your goal just remember one thing, your group is the "Brits" group and they lost in the end to my group the "Colonists" group!

Why is it that your type of public official always blames the gun and not the person who pulls the trigger? Could it be because the gun can't defend itself and tell you its story? Is it easier for you to go after the gun and not the trigger puller because it's easier for you to hide behind a smoke screen? A smoke screen of trying to get gullible people to believe that you are doing such a good job in your public office that they will vote you in again, all the while you are actually taking their Rights away a chip at a time.

Have a great day.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
False is the idea of utility that sacrifices a thousand real advantages for one imaginary or trifling inconvenience; that would take fire from men because it burns, and water because one may drown in it; that has no remedy for evils except destruction. The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such a nature. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crime. Cesare Beccaria, quoted by Thomas Jefferson
