    Letter to Dianne Feinstein

    A few days back I sent a letter to Senator Feinstine. The letter was as such:

    Please do not go forward with the new gun control bill you have written up.

    Now, I do not have a heart wrenching story to tell you to further my point or to embellish my statements. All I am is one man who has never had a need for a firearm. I however understand their importance in America. I will spare you all the "guns don't kill people" statements since I am sure you have heard them all to often.

    I would ask you to think of the people you would be affecting who work for the firearms companies that produce the products that you are banning.

    I would ask that you take into consideration the importance of this matter. The Constitution of the United States and the words contained in that document are worth more than my life. They are worth more than 20 children. That document is worth every life of every person who says the Pledge of Allegiance and calls the United States of America their home.

    So, please, do not go forward with your proposal.

    Thank you for your time

    Today i got a response from Senator Feinstine. The letter was as such:

    Thank you again for contacting me, and I hope you will continue to do so in the future.


    Dianne Feinstein
    United States Senator

    So it is kind of obvious that even though she is trying to pass laws that concern every American, she has no interest in hearing from them. Apparently this is no longer a country for the people, by the people and of the people.
