Sen. Toomey E-Mail Update
#1
Just got this as (somehow) I'm on the mailing list:

Quote:This week, I worked with Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) to forge a common sense bill to help protect our communities from criminals and the mentally ill while at the same time protecting our cherished Second Amendment rights.

Pennsylvania has a long, bipartisan tradition of supporting gun rights. I am a proud part of that tradition. I am a gun owner. I revere the rights enshrined in our Second Amendment. My record shows this.

Criminal background checks are common sense. If you pass a criminal background check, you can buy a gun. It's the people who fail a criminal or mental health background check that we don't want having guns. This can be done without infringing on law-abiding people's gun rights.

This bill will not take away anyone's guns. It will not ban any type of firearm. It does not ban or restrict the use of any kind of bullet or any size clip or magazine. The bill will not create a national registry; in fact, it specifically makes it illegal to establish any such registry. I invite you to read a summary of my proposed amendment here as well as the full text here.

I thank everyone who took time to share their thoughts with me and my staff on this issue. As always, I appreciate hearing from you. I will continue to listen to your thoughts and concerns on this, and on every issue.

except of course all the ccw holders from Missouri that had all their info forwarded to Holder by the state highway patrol.

when was the last time anyone of significance in the government prosecuted?
It's the "BILL OF RIGHTS" not the bill of "needs"

Social security started out and the gov assured everyone the number would NEVER be used for purposes of identification.

The seat belt law started out here in Pa and would Neever be used as a primary offense.

Do we need more examples of the government lying about what would and wouldn't happen?
