Rep Pat Meehan response to my email
#1
Here's the canned response received from Pat Meehan ( R ) who represents the 7th Congressional District in the Philly burbs:

Dear Mr. Xxxxxx:

Thank you for contacting me regarding federal firearms legislation. I appreciate having the benefit of your views.
Like you, I was terribly saddened by the tragic shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, and the images of the victims still breaks my heart. I come to this debate after many years as a district attorney and U.S. Attorney who has prosecuted countless criminals for gun offenses. As U.S. Attorney, I spearheaded the Project Safe Neighborhoods program, which through tough, coordinated policing and federal prosecution of local gun crimes, we made a real dent over the entire region. Now, like back then, we need to put an emphasis on what works to keep guns out of the hands of criminals who would harm innocent, law-abiding people. The stakes are too high to pass legislation for its own sake that will not be effective.
As Congress begins to examine the President’s recommendations and others, I will be looking to support legislative proposals that meet two key tests: one, will it respect the constitutional protections of law-abiding citizens who have a right to defend themselves, and two, will it effectively curb gun violence or keep guns out of the hands of criminals. It is also correct to put a renewed focus on mental health, improving care for troubled young people, and the prevalence of violent movies and video games in our culture. I am ready to work with the President, Democrats and Republicans in Congress to take steps that will be effective in curbing gun violence. As this debate goes forward, please be assured that I will keep your views in mind.
Again, thank you for contacting me. For your convenience you can visit my website, www.meehan.house.gov, where you can sign up for my e-newsletter to receive regular updates about my work in Congress on your behalf.

Sincerely,
Patrick Meehan
Member of Congress

Typical politician response. These congressmen must run every two years. If he fucks this up and caves to anti's pressure, I will work hard to bounce him next cycle.

Vague reply is wordy and vague. And wordy.

Ditto. Is it just me, or does it seem like he's missed the cultural conflict aspect?

Completely.

Here is the reply a friend in North Carolina received from his representative

Quote:Dear Mr. :
Thank you for contacting me with your concerns regarding gun control initiatives in the wake of the recent shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut. I value your opinion and appreciate hearing from you on this matter.

No words can describe this unspeakable tragedy. My thoughts and prayers continue to be with the families and friends of those who lost loved ones in Sandy Hook.

In the days ahead, the American public and elected officials will examine all of the factors that played a role in this event, and others like it. As this conversation unfolds, let me state clearly that I will continue to stand up for the 2nd Amendment rights of law-abiding Americans. Furthermore, please know that I am strongly opposed to President Obama's implementation of numerous gun control initiatives through executive order. This is just another example of the president attempting to bypass the Congress and the Constitution in order to implement his extreme agenda.

Again, thank you for sharing your views on this issue with me. If you have any further questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Sincerely,

Walter B. Jones
