I got a response from Senator Stabenow, also from Michigan, that she will not support further gun control at this time. We'll see.
Apparently she is lying to one of us. A politician lying. Go figure.
Thank you for contacting me about the tragic and senseless violence in Newtown, Connecticut. I appreciate you sharing your thoughts and concerns with me.
If there is anything that deeply unites Americans across the country it is our love for our children and grandchildren and our desire to keep them safe. In the wake of the heartbreaking tragedy at Sandy Hook elementary, all of us must come together to determine what steps can be taken to protect our children. That means discussing how we can strengthen our gun laws to help stop attacks like this from happening again, while protecting responsible gun ownership and preserving our hunting heritage. It also means strengthening mental health services, and focusing on the broader culture of violence in the media and our society. These solutions may not be easy, but one thing should be clear – complacency and inaction until the next attack must not be an option.
Thank you again for contacting me. Please continue to keep me informed about issues of concern to you and your family.
United States Senator
She says "strengthen our gun laws". I don't see anywhere in mine where she will not support further gun control. In fact it seems the exact opposite. Oh and I didn't mention Newtown at all in my letter to her. I mentioned the political climate and how she should uphold her oath to protect the constitution namely 2A.
