To the Honorable J. Gibbons, R-NV
I'm a constituent back here in Las Vegas. I vote.
I'm a former Marine. I'm a small business owner. Most of all, I'm a concerned
patriot (I was before this mess started, and I will be after the "fad"
fades). I'm writing this letter to urge you to do your damnedest to shut down
ANY gun legislation that appears before you, or which you are called to vote
upon. With over 20000 (that's Twenty THOUSAND) gun laws on the books nationwide,
I doubt I'd feel any safer with any more. As a matter of fact, as my representative,
I'd like to see you do your part to start paring down the excessive over-regulation
that besieges my Constitutional Second Amendment rights.
One example currently comes to mind (don't worry,
there'll be more...I've suddenly had a revival in my "write your congressman"
You're a standup guy by reputation, a fighter
pilot during the Gulf War, if I recall correctly. When Representative Blagojevich
from Illinois slimes his way out of his office to slander the gun-owning populace
of America, I'd like you to "call the ball" on his idiocy. Rep. Blagojevich
has gone on record as saying that the .50BMG (the "fifty cal"), a
cartridge that predates the Harding administration, is suddenly the "EVIL
GUN OF THE HOUR", endowing it with psuedo-magical properties that approach
science fiction. Rep. Blagojevich and his ilk have attributed the Fifty Cal
with the ability to pierce tank hulls, hit targets 4 miles away, down jumbo
jets, and other mishmash. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Rep. Blagojevich has vilified this rifle round
up and down in the press by blatantly spouting mistruths and outright lies to
forward his agenda, and unfortunately, a sheepishly large proportion of the
populace is listening to him. Now, they're even linking the Atrocity of September
11th to their efforts to ban this unrelated weapon (you'd think they'd ban box
cutters instead of fifty cals). This disgusting propaganda by the Left brings
me to my point.
There is a term that is used in the Marines (among
other places), and it is quite coarse and boorish, but it gets the point across
when you want something done, and done post haste. It's known as "putting
your boot up his ass", or in other words, getting things done expediently
I, the voting, small-business-owning, taxpaying
former Marine, demand you to put your legislative boot up Representative Blagojevich's
digestive-tract-output-ring, and all the output-rings of every other antigun
legislator you have the displeasure of crossing paths with. Figuratively, of
I want you to wheel, deal, scratch, carve, and
swindle my gun rights back into existence. I want you to fight as dirty and
underhanded to protect my rights as the Liberal Left does to take them away.
I, the person you represent, officially empower you to work your magic, do that
voodoo that you do so well, and keep the liars and gun-snatchers of the world
It won't be a popular stance. It won't be easy.
I believe you can do it, though, and if you can't, I'll elect some one who will.
For more information on the idiocy being spread about the Fifty Cal, I've enclosed
a link to a particularly informative web site that you or your staff are more
than welcome to analyze for future legislative ass-booting.
I thank you for your time in advance.
