Bill Shuster response to my email
Dear Mr. ************:

Thank you for contacting me concerning the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty and the right of the people to "keep and bear arms." I appreciate hearing your views on this important topic.

As you may know, the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty would have established an international standard regarding the transfer of conventional weapons. During discussions, negotiators also attempted to include civilian firearms to be included in the ATT. With significant opposition from the U.S. Congress and citizens like yourself, the conference broke down and did not produce a treaty.

From the time I entered Congress in 2001, I have stood firm in my belief that the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution guarantees every law-abiding citizen the right to own and use firearms. The Founding Fathers believed that this right is essential, and forever protected it with the Second Amendment. As a defender of the Constitution, and a proud member of the National Rifle Association (NRA), I will continue to protect this right as your Representative in Congress.

An individual's right to own firearms for hunting, shooting and self protection is important to me, as a hunter and as your Congressman. Please rest assured I will not support any legislation that proposes to restrict the right of law-abiding Americans to own firearms. I believe a strictly enforced criminal code is the first line of defense in the fight against gun violence, rather than the limitation of a Constitutionally protected right. Please know that I will proudly support efforts to protect and promote the Second Amendment rights of Americans at every available opportunity.

Again, thank you for contacting me regarding this issue. Your thoughts and comments are always welcome. For your convenience, you can receive further information on issues important to the Ninth District at Also, please stop by our blog at, find me on Facebook at and on Twitter at
