hey I found one of the letters I wrote
This is one of the letters I wrote to Feinstein , Boxer and Davis .
Hi I hope the holidays were good to you and your family . I'm writing to ask you not to offer any gun legislation now or in the future .I do know it seems like a good way to prevent gun crime but IMO it will not . The shooting in CT was done by a young man that seemed to be very troubled . I think are focus as a nation should be to help people with mental illness and the ability to recognize it before tragedy's like the one in CT happen .
Stopping me from buying any particular firearm will not stop anybody from
breaking into my home ,stealing the guns I already own , kill me and using them in a crime . It's my understanding that the young man in CT did that very thing . No he may not have broke in to the house but he did steal the guns and kill the legal owner and then used them in the most awful crime I have ever seen . Even if not one more gun was sold in the US again we still would have a few hundred million guns here . Banning a few gun from this day foreword will not stop gun crime or even reduce it .
I know there is not enough money to put a cop in every school . I ask you to
consider a school Marshall program similar to the air Marshall program .Maybe 1 Marshall for every 5 to 10 schools . They can rotate and the bad guys will not know what school has the Marshall in them . I believe this would be a good deterrent and would be 1/5 to 1/10 the cost of putting a cop in every school .
I know we as a nation and human beings can't sit by and do nothing when 20
children get killed but new gun control will not stop this from happening again
Thanks for your time
