Pat Toomey's Response to My Email

Dear (Philadelphia Patriot),

Thank you for contacting me about the killings in Newtown, CT. I appreciate hearing from you.

Like all Americans, I was horrified and sickened to learn about the mass murder in Newtown, CT on December 14, 2012. As you know, Adam Lanza murdered 26 people that day, including educators and young children at Sandy Hook Elementary School and his mother at her house, before committing suicide. My thoughts and prayers are with the victims and the families who were affected.

In response, we need to come together as a nation, carefully reflect on what happened, and have a thoughtful dialogue on how we can improve public safety and protect our children. Of note, this atrocity in Newtown was the direct result of serious mental illness - something we have consistently observed in other mass killings over the years. We therefore need to better protect ourselves from mentally ill individuals who seek to carry out such atrocities. We also need to review and improve how we take care of the mentally ill. I therefore value your input on this issue and look forward to Congress debating which policies should be implemented to improve public safety.

Thank you again for your correspondence. Please do not hesitate to contact me in the future if I can be of assistance.

Sincerely,



Pat Toomey
U.S. Senator, Pennsylvania

I hope this means he will vote against gun control measures. Shrug

Me too. Guess the beleaguered staffer got around to finishing the boiler-plate response and hit send on the mail merge on the way out to Friday night cocktail hour. No response from Casey or my Rep, Meehan, so far.

I emailed my rep again a few minutes ago. Sent him a very long message reminding him that these anti gun bills do nothing but punish those who have committed no crime. I also reminded him that he works for us and thay voting yes on any law that restricts my rights could very well lead to an end of his Congressional career as happened in the 1994 mid term elections. If I hear back I'll post his response.

I received the same email from him.

I take it he will put the burden on mental health issues and preventing mentally ill individuals from acquiring firearms as opposed to "gun control".
A gun rack in a pick-up is not for holding guns. Its a place for women to hold on to. Smile

Hah just got another one from Barletta. Still the same canned response for the UN treaty.
