View Full Version : Florida - Senator Nelson's Response to HR 1022

I received the following from Senator Bill Nelson today regarding an email I sent to him asking for his stance on HR 1022 -
Dear Mr. Agerton:

Thank you for contacting me regarding legislation to reinstate the ban on assault weapons. As you may know, the ban expired in the 109th Congress when then-majority leader Frist failed to schedule time for debate.

Representative Carolyn McCarthy has introduced H.R. 1022 to reinstate for ten years the criminal provisions regarding assault weapons and large capacity ammunition feeding devices. The bill is pending before the House Judiciary Committee.

I support the constitutional right to bear arms. However, I also support efforts to reduce gun violence and promote firearms safety. It is imperative that assault weapons are kept out of the hands of criminals.

I will keep your thoughts in mind if companion legislation to H.R. 1022 is debated by the Senate. Please don't hesitate to write again on any other issues that concern you.

I wonder what our esteemed junior RINO Senator has to say about this... I assume you contacted his office as well. I guess he had nothing to say. :rofl:

Nelson is a ******. If he wants to keep Homeland Defense Rifles out of the hands of criminals, keep the criminals in jail. Don't take the Homeland Defense Rifles away from law abiding citizens. Oh, and don't blame Senator Frist for not bringing a law that abridges the 2nd Amendment for discussion and a vote. Nelson needs to get a grip on Constitutional law - he obviously doesn't understand it.

You're right, what was I thinking. He's still a mindless ******! Can't believe we have 5 more years of him - he's worthless.

Typical politician, says a lot, without really saying anything at all. I don't quite get his stance. I also believe it is imperative that assault weapons (actually any type of firearm, including rusty old .38's) are kept out of the hands of criminals.

I think the problem may be that he actually believes another law on the books will keep said criminals from obtaining said weapons.

By definition, only law abiding folks follow the law. That's why criminals are referred to as "outlaws".

Time to start sending letters again.
