Subject: [KABA-ADV] U.S. Senate response to terrorism

Senator Gregg:

First, my credentials: I'm a former U.S. Army sergeant, an active member of the Concord (NH) Republican City Committee, a candidate for election to the Concord City Council, and a board member of Gun Owners of New Hampshire. Yesterday, September 13, on the floor of the U.S. Senate, you called for a global ban on communications encryption products that don't have "backdoors" for government surveillance. Call it a wild guess, but I'll bet you also voted for yesterday's Dianne Feinstein-Orrin Hatch bill, the "Combating Terrorism Act of 2001," which enhances police wiretap powers and removes restrictions on Internet monitoring.

What the hell's the matter with you?

Do you want to be remembered as one of those who helped accelerate America's tumble into a police state? What honor is there in catering to the lowest instincts of the public, at a time of near-hysteria, when sensibilities are most vulnerable? Polls or no polls, now is the most important time to heed Benjamin Franklin's warning that those who give up liberty for safety deserve neither.

Next, or course, is even more unconstitutional gun control, because... well, there's no real reason, is there? ...except that governments have always used the threat of external enemies to increase their power -- and thereby become the internal enemy.

The central founding principle of this country, unique in world history, is the sanctity of individual liberty. When even conservative politicians forget that the purpose of government is to protect that liberty, I mourn for the country I love.
Shame on you.

Sam Cohen

**** RKBA! (...the exclamation point means "shall not be infringed!") ****

The "assault weapon" ban didn't stop the terrorists, Brady checks didn't stop them, the high capacity magazine ban didn't. Right to Carry would have. If it had saved only one tower and the people in it, it would have been worth it. GUN CONTROL KILLS.
