Thank you so much for contacting me with your concerns about HB2264. I always enjoy hearing from my constituents, especially when we are in such complete agreement.
Rest assured that I will do all I can to oppose such blatant draconian efforts to punish law-abiding individuals just because the government is afraid of an armed populace. I am and have been a firm defender of our second amendment rights. I have also taken an oath to defend the Washington State Constitution which says in part “The right of an individual citizen to bear arms in defense of himself or the state shall not be impaired”. I will continue to speak up for the law and will be sure to oppose HB2264.
Thank you again for e-mailing me and if you have any other questions or concerns feel free to contact me by phone (360-786-7632) or e-mail (Benton.email@example.com).
BILL: 2264 (Against)
SUBJECT: HR 2264 sale of firearms at gun shows and events 2 amending RCW 9.41.010 adding a new section to chapter 9.41 RCW
Having read through this Bill, I see no legitimate use for it other than just a tool to further open the door to further punitive restrictions on law abiding gun owners and is another back door assault on the 2nd Amendment. I strongly urge a down vote on this as we already have adequate background check laws on the books. As always, I follow your voting record and use it as a guide to my own voting come the next election cycle. Any further legislation aimed at the 2nd Amendment will be watched closely by all voters who are concerned about this ever increasing encroachment on this important and foundation Amendment.
In reading this article, keeping in mind that everything that comes out of the Soviet press is propaganda, this still is disturbing. Because of Obama’s gaffs and mishandling of the economic mess, we are shrinking and loosing status in the global court of influence and leadership. Obama is showing the world how we he is and by extention, us as a nation. He is sending all the wrong messages and if he does not do an “about face”, we will loose our stature and place of promenence in the world. My question is, Is that is truel goal? What is happening is so appearant, how can he not know?
I am getting sick and tired of the Libs using the terms “Democrat” and “Democratic” thinking they are the same. For the record…THEY ARE NOT SYNONYMOUS!! Just because your a member of the Democrat Party does not mean you are or belong to a Democratic Party. If anything, the Democrat Party now is just about as far as you could get from being Democratic. The Dems are all for big government that intrudes on every aspect of your life. That fact has never been so true as it is today. If “The ‘Bama” has his way, I expect us to all be under the totalitarian over-watch of the new Federal Government in ways we could scarcely imagine. Before he is done, the government will be dictating all manner of things, especially energy usage, that would never stand under a “Democratic” government. So, to all you Flat Earth, Tree Hugging, Can’t we all get along, I’m sticking my nose in your business, drones, I hope you are happy now. You and your ilk have managed to tear asunder in a few short months, what took hundreds of years to build, by the way, with the blood of hundreds of thousands of our Forefathers and Patriots. You have managed to marginalize, minimize and invalidate all of their sacrifices and deaths in their struggle to preserve and protect our hard earned Democracy. In my opinion, you are all treasonous. I was vilified for trying to tell all before the election what was going to happen, and damned if I not right. It is all going to come to pass. You traded our Democracy for “Change”. Now you and the rest of us are going to have to live with what you have done. Your so busy listening to CNN and their half truths, and lies by omissions, and other main stream media, you either cannot or will not bring yourself to see the real truth. You are not deserving of the liberties so many died for, for you…….Enjoy your “Change” You live up to the Democrat symbol, The Ass
