Basically she is telling me to go fuck myself, and that I don't know what the second amendment means.

Quote:Dear [Philadelphia Patriot],

As I work to meet the needs and priorities of our community and the nation, please know how much I appreciate having the benefit of your views. In response to your outreach to my office, I wanted to share my views regarding gun violence, particularly in the aftermath of the devastating shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. As Americans, we all felt the loss of each child and each teacher and administrator, and my thoughts and prayers are with their families and neighbors.

There are have been far too many incidents of gun violence in our nation and I believe that we must take action to end gun violence and increase gun safety. We should do so by recognizing the responsibilities of gun ownership; ensuring that guns do not fall into the hands of criminals or those who are mentally ill; and strengthening the safety and security of our homes, schools, communities, and our public spaces. I have long sought action to achieve these goals, and I am encouraged by the recent efforts by Congress and the Obama Administration to reach out to the many factions in this debate and identify meaningful action we can take to reduce gun violence. I have heard from many Pennsylvanians since the tragic shooting in Newtown, all calling for action to protect their families and their communities.

Democratic leadership in the House recently formed a new House Democratic Gun Violence Prevention Task Force, chaired by my colleague Mike Thompson, (CA-05), an avid hunter and Vietnam War veteran. As an active member of the task force, I am working with my colleagues as we reach out to law enforcement, gun owners, mayors, victims, mental health professionals, and experts in violence prevention to identify a comprehensive approach to reduce gun violence.

Recommendations are likely to include better enforcement of current laws and new provisions that will require either executive or legislative action. These include: reauthorization of the Federal Assaults Weapons Ban, tougher criminal penalties against straw purchasers, closing loopholes that enable millions of gun purchases to be made privately or at gun shows without background checks, ban on large magazines and multi-round ammunition, methods to better ensure accuracy and timeliness of database for seriously mentally ill who should not be able to purchase guns, and improvements in available treatment for mental illnesses, and research on gun violence and effective prevention strategies. I support these efforts.

In the new 113th Congress I have cosponsored several bills aimed at curbing gun violence including the Gun Transparency, Accountability and Enforcement (Gun TRACE) Act, which will enable the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (AFT) to release crime gun trace data to state and local law enforcement and the public; retain records of background checks on firearm purchases for 90 days; and require inventory audits of federally licensed gun dealers to prevent the illegal transfer of guns into the wrong hands. I am also a cosponsor of the Fire Sale Loophole Closing Act. Right now, when a gun dealer has their license revoked or denied renewal by the federal government, they are permitted to convert the gun inventory into a private collection to be sold without the requirement of performing a background check on the purchaser. This bill would end this practice of allowing evasion of background checks.

In addition, I am currently working with my colleagues to repeal existing prohibitions on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), National Institutes of Health (NIH), and Health and Human Services (HHS) to conduct crucial scientific research into firearm safety. Gun violence is a public health issue and public health agencies should have the ability to develop and pursue violence prevention and mental health research.

Now is the time for us to put our determination to end gun violence in our society to work to prevent both another tragedy such as happened in Newtown and the senseless loss of life that occurs almost daily across our nation due to gun violence.

Thank you for contacting me and for offering your thoughts on this important subject. Please do not hesitate to be in touch again to offer an opinion or if my office can be of assistance.


Sincerely,



Allyson Y. Schwartz

I'll bet that is the same email that the grabbers get. I'd be surprised if they even get tallied pro/con. They don't give a crap anymore what their constituency thinks.

Looks like the center for American progress has thoroughly spread their buzzword, "gun violence" in lieu of gun control.

Seems like they are blind to the gun violence taking place in the gun free zones like Chicago, Detroit and DC. I think like 22 people died from "gun violence" in Chicago already this year.

The Dems seem to have identical talking points. "gun violence", "meaningful action" "comprehensive approach", "prevention task force" I am sick of listening to them, they always talk like they have all the answers.. Democratic leadership my ass.

Thanks for writing her and posting her reply, as painful as it is to read.

That "Prevention Task Force was a joke" it was akin to putting Nazi's in charge of Jewish schools. They knew what they wanted from the beginning and NO amount of logic or common sense was applied. Write her back and tell her she got a volunteer for her next competitor next election.

That's strange, I have yet to hear of any gun shooting another gun out of anger, criminal intent, or negligence. Huh. I wonder where I have been. RolleyesTongue

Gun violence isn't the problem, human nature - which is often played out through the use of tools - is.

I got the same email from here.

Given the fact that she was a social worker and part of our/her district is in welfare and food stamp loving Philadelphia I am not surprised.
A gun rack in a pick-up is not for holding guns. Its a place for women to hold on to. Smile
