What one person wrote their congresswoman......

I will not register my weapons should this bill be passed, as I do not believe it is the government's right to know what I own. Nor do I think it prudent to tell you what I own so that it may be taken from me by a group of people who enjoy, and willingly pay for, armed protection, yet decry me having the same a crime. You have overstepped a line that is not your domain.

I am a United States military veteran of many years, and I will not have someone who proclaims the evil of an inanimate object, yet carries some and has many in their homes and places of work, tell me I may not have one.

I am not your subject. I am a man who has kept you free. I am not your servant. I am a person whom you serve. I am not your peasant. I am the flesh and blood of America.

I am a man who fought for your country and mine. I am a man who learned. I am an American. You will not tell me that I must register my firearms because of the actions of some evil person. I will not register any of my firearms because these other inanimate objects involved with human suffering are not registered:

* Arrows, swords, bayonettes, spears, knives, axes, hatchets, baseball bats, golf clubs, tire irons, box cutters, scissors, ice picks, pitch forks, crowbars and ropes that can be tied into hangman's nooses; they kill people.

* Telephones; they make obscene calls.

* Pens and pencils; they write bad checks.

* Cameras, crayons and paint brushes; they make pornographic pictures.

* Printers; they make counterfeit dollar bills.

* Containers, every bottle, can, jug, box, keg or barrel holding anything with alcohol, as alcohol, like other intoxicating depressants (yes it's a depressant), causes more deaths and harm to humans than firearms.

* Paper money of any kind, so, if paid to a criminal to commit a crime and are recovered as evidence, their serial numbers can be used to trace them back to their owner.

* Everybody's DNA profile and fingerprints, so, if it's in evidence found in a crime scene, they can be identified.

I will not be disarmed to suit the fear that has been established by the media and your misinformation campaign against the American public.

We, the people, deserve better than you.
