After reading the text of your speech
I must say I am concerned.
Now that the 'Patriot Act' is being
used against common lawful American citizens, what will this project bring lawful
firearms owners? In a country where we are all innocent until proven guilty,
you have now made every firearms owner with an undeniable right to self-defense
someone that is now guilty until proven innocent.
With all of the people on the lookout
for someone with a gun, how many peaceable citizens are going to be harassed
"in the name of the children?"
This is just disgusting. Now for
every innocent person that makes a mistake, they are going to be portrayed as
an evil, malicious child killer with a gun. Example? Driving to a local gun
club and passing within 1000 feet of a school zone. That's a felony offense
now. Does this person go to jail for the maximum sentence? Where do you draw
the line? It's meaningless, feel-good tripe such as this that gets innocent
people in trouble.
Please consider the choices you
are making. "War time" is an excuse, not a reason. When you and Congress
stop using the Constitution (specifically the Bill of Rights) as a hand towel,
then those of us who believe in Liberty, will consider your reappointment.
"They that can give up essential
liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."
- Benjamin Franklin
