I just sent that video to two of my State Senators. Both senators responded to emails that I'd sent them, asking them to oppose any new gun control laws, generally, and to oppose Diane Feinstein's latest gun ban effort, specifically. Both senators told me that they supported further gun restrictions.

Just wonderful........Are they both Dems?

Blue said...

It shouldn't matter what they support, it should matter what their constituents want. That's the problem with the ass lickers in the Senate (and the house).

I sent the GOA letters the past two days to my senators, too. I will receive responses from them in a month or so. Grassley will tell me that he supports The Second, Harkin will tell me he is a hunter himself and that he doesn't want to prevent people from hunting but that we need more and stronger gun control laws to prevent further massacres.

They do not care about us. Their goal is to play supreme ruler and to glorify themselves while perpetuating their careers.

F--- them all.

Blue said...

yep. :)

Karma, bay-bay.

Brock: Yes, they're both Democrats.

Blue: I doubt, seriously that: a. they hear from many constituents on either Federal or State issues, and, b. they care what constuents think. They both answerred saying that they "think" there should be stronger gun control. "They think", not "their constituents want".

I believe this is the FBI chart that was used in the video:

David... I have found over the years that they don't give a fat rat's ass what their constituents think, at least at the federal level.

My U.S. Representative is Bruce Braley. He does what the UAW boys that elected him tell him to do. I think he votes with his party something like 99.9% of the time. All that tells me is that he is unable to think for himself. He doesn't realize that he has other constituents. He fails to realize that his job is to represent EVERYONE in his district.

He sent me an email last year that said "Paul, it is apparent that you and I are probably never going to agree on anything. Please feel free to continue contacting me to express your concerns". Ever since that time, every email I have sent him has been responded to with a blank email from him.
