Urgent Call for Action: DELCO/CHESCO Voters in 26th District
#1
Just got notice from the NRA that my Republican Senator, Edwin (Ted) Erikson from the 26th PA District, is the lone Republican who has gone rogue and co-sponsored Senate Bill 435, Assault Weapons and high-cap mag ban.

I urge all DELCO voters from towns in the 26th District to stop what you're doing and call or write Erikson immediately to express your strong opposition. He's been basically 2A in the past and I believe enough pressure can convince him to see the error of his ways and withdraw support.

(717) 787-1350 or eerickson@pasen.gov

Don't put this off

Quote:Senator Erickson,
I am strongly opposed to your support of Senate Bill 435.

Why is it that politicians always want to punish law abiding citizens for the deeds of criminals? I’m sure you have access to the results of the federal assault weapon ban, which concluded that the ban had no affect on gun crime. Why is it so hard for politicians to understand you can pass all the laws you want, criminals will do what they want no matter what you tell them they can’t.

I would suggest you take a look at a common sense opinion to gun control found here: http://larrycorreia.wordpress.com/2012/1...n-control/

Got a response .....


Quote:Dear William:

Thank you for contacting my office to express your opposition to Senate Bill 435. As you may know, I have long been a supporter of our rights under the Second Amendment. Unfortunately, prior to its introduction, the nature and intent of this legislation was misrepresented. I have therefore taken action to remove my name as a co-sponsor of Senate Bill 435.

Thank you again for contacting me in regard to this important issue.

Sincerely,



Edwin B. Erickson

So he supported something without actually reading the Bill?

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.

.... and this surprises you? I wonder how many of our lawmakers read Obamacare before passing it.

Not surprised one bit. Its typical politician behavior.

Or, the sponsorship memo misrepresented while the bill was still a place holder with no substantive language. Knowing Ted for many years, coupled with his direct response, I will give him the benefit of doubt and take him at his word.
