Fl sen (small "s" on purpose) Bill Nelson's response

Thank you for contacting me about policy proposals that seek to reduce gun violence.

I support reinstating the assault weapons ban and restoring the 10-round limit for ammunition magazines. AK 47s are intended for killing, not hunting. I support universal background checks, and voted for them in the Senate this April.

Solutions for reducing gun violence must address many areas, from protecting law enforcement and keeping weapons out of the hands of criminals, to school safety and access to mental health services.

I will continue to seek a path forward to reform our nation's gun laws. I appreciate hearing your views on this very important issue, and I will keep them in mind as the debate on gun control moves forward. Please do not hesitate to contact me in the future.

Sincerely,
Bill Nelson

And here's his response to me in March prior to the vote. Condescending political rhetoric.

Vote him out.

" Thank you for contacting me about protecting Second Amendment rights.

I grew up on a ranch and have been a hunter since I was a boy. I have had guns all my life. I support a person's constitutional right to bear arms. I support the Second Amendment.

In 2008, the Supreme Court of the United States affirmed that the Second Amendment protects a person's right to possess a firearm, unconnected to military service, and to use that firearm for traditional lawful purposes like self-defense within the home. This is the law of the land.

I appreciate hearing your views on this subject. Hearing from you helps me to better serve you in the Senate."

Sincerely,
Bill Nelson

How does that Oath of Office go, again, Mr. Nelson? No respect for him at all.

Senator Nelson is telling you that guns are for hunting and nothing more. I haven't been hunting in over 20 years. I keep guns to protect myself and family. That may require more than 10 rounds.

We had a chance to vote him out last year but he won by a landslide. This state has a republican governor and republican dominated legislature. I can't think of a single reason that the voters put Nelson back in office.

FL is known for being a gun friendly state but that is changing slowly. I will be watching elections very closely from now on. In many counties "gun show loophole is closed" and the wait time is extended to 5 days. They are also ready to sign in a bill for further mental health exclusions that have passed the house and senate.
