Response from Joe Pitts.

Quote:Thank you for contacting me regarding the Newtown, Connecticut school shooting. I appreciate having the benefit of your views.



This kind of violence is horrifying and hard to understand. Two weeks ago, someone was pushed in front of a subway train in New York. Locally, we just learned of the torture of three elderly women in Clay Township. Six years ago, we experienced the Nickel Mines School shooting. I was deeply affected by that incident. Shortly afterward, I voted for a bill, the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) Improvement Act on June 13, 2007, that prohibited firearm purchases by people deemed by a court to be mentally ill or dangerous.



There are no easy answers and there are no quick fixes. We need to take an honest look at how we address mental illness in our country. We need to question why so much of our entertainment seems to revel in violence. Families, communities, and faith are weaker than they once were. I believe that plays a role in this. Yes, we should look at gun laws too, particularly at how we enforce them. We need to recognize, though, that no law can prevent insanity and that criminals and madmen do not obey the law



Rest assured, I will keep your views in mind. Thanks again for sharing your thoughts with me. Please don't hesitate to contact me in the future if I can be of any help to you or your family.


Sincerely,

Joe Pitts
Member of Congress


Hmm not sure how we should take this.

Sounds like he is on the right track.

but my responsibility to respond in the name of liberty.

I've spoken with Rep Pitts extensively and in person many times. I honestly feel that he is on our side when it comes to these matters.

Admit nothing.  Deny everything. Demand proof.
If we lie to the government, it's a crime. If the government lies to the people, it's called politics.
