An American Devolution?

... "... The language contained in the Second Amendment is quite clear. It was put there for ever more obvious reasons, as what the Founders feared is taking place before our very eyes. Those that claim to want to govern well still want to govern. It is also clear that the modern politician has lost sight of the mission, which is to limit their actions to those tasks enumerated in the Constitution. Today, regulations and rules abound, stifling our prosperity and our future. The collective American 'gut feeling' tells us as much." ...

"W. Gerald Massengill chaired the Virginia Tech Review Panel ... Mr. Massengill is also the former superintendent of the Virginia State Police. Thus, when he comes out in favor of ending the exemption on background checks in the sale or trade of firearms by unlicensed dealers, his is a voice that carries much resonance. We understand that."

"Nonetheless, we adjudge Mr. Massengill guilty of over-reaction, of throwing babies out with the bathwater. The horrific crimes of Seung-Hui Cho had absolutely nothing to do with the sale, purchase, or exchange of firearms at gun shows or auctions. Mr. Cho bought the guns he used with such deadly effect from a licensed gun dealer. ..." ...

"World record holding Xtreme Sport Shooter Patrick Flanigan fires 12 shells in just 1.442 seconds with the Winchester Super X3 Shotgun!"

"With just a few hours of familiarization time behind the trigger of his brand new Winchester Super X3 shotgun, Xtreme Sport Shooter Patrick Flanigan was able to fire a dozen Winchester AA 12 gauge shells in an astonishing 1.442 seconds, timed from first to last shot. The Winchester Super X3 used by Flanigan was not specially modified in any way other than having an extended magazine to allow for firing 12 shots."

"Frank D'Andrea's Connecticut gun shop was 'a convenient, one-stop shopping place for violent and prolific narcotics traffickers, convicted felons and other prohibited persons,' federal law enforcement officials say."

"His store sold hundreds of guns to gangsters and drug traffickers and was cited for hundreds of legal violations. But weak gun laws allowed D'Andrea to stay in business for more than two decades, until he was finally arrested and pled guilty to violating federal gun law. He was sentenced to three and a half years in jail, to begin in January 2008." ...

"It ought to review an appellate court ruling to make clear that the Second Amendment provides a right for individuals to own firearms, not just a right for states and their militias."

"The nation's highest court was expected to announce Tuesday whether it would hear an appeal of a case involving a Washington, D.C. ban on the ownership of handguns except for current and retired police officers.

Oppose Michael J. Sullivan as BATFE director

FULL TEXT BELOW:

Dear Senator,

I writing to ask you to oppose the confirmation of acting BATFE director Michael J. Sullivan as director. This man has a very dubious history and would be an extremely ill fit as BATFE director. Recently the BATFE has changed from a tax and licensing agency to a government agency of gun control. As Michael J Sullivan has a anti-gun bias, making him director of BATFE would increase the abuses of the BATFE against legitimate gun and gun store owners.

A government agency should not have a unconstitutional agenda. With Micheal J Sullivan as director of the BATFE this is what BATFE would become.

Please vote against confirming Michael J. Sullivan as director of BATFE.

Thank you,
David
