I've been writing almost every day the last week. It's important not to mention a fundamental right we have to speak out against the actions of our government.

Kay Hagan emailed this to me

Dear Friend,

Thank you for contacting me regarding the horrific tragedy that took place at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. I appreciate hearing your thoughts on this issue, and my thoughts and prayers remain with the victims and families of this senseless and appalling act of violence.

In the wake of the shooting in Newtown, which left twenty-six innocent members of the community dead, many of them young children, Americans across the country are searching for answers on how we can prevent such tragic events from happening in the future. I believe we must do all we can to put laws and policies in place to prevent future tragedies such as this one. Doing that will require a common-sense debate on a comprehensive approach that examines all relevant issues, including access to firearms, mental healthcare, and the prevalence of violence in video games and media. Additionally, Senator Feinstein has stated her intent to introduce legislation concerning access to firearms at the start of the 113th Congress. To date, that legislation has not been introduced. As always, it is important that we not unnecessarily infringe on the legitimate Second Amendment rights of responsible gun owners.

Like you, I have always been an advocate for Second Amendment rights. My family, like the great state of North Carolina, has a long tradition of hunting and gun ownership, and I take great pride in that heritage. During my tenure in the North Carolina Senate I continuously supported the responsible use of firearms. As your United States Senator, I will always be committed to protecting these fundamental, constitutional rights.

Congressman Walter B Jones

Thank you for contacting me with your concerns regarding gun control initiatives in the wake of the recent shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School. I appreciate hearing from you on this matter.

No words can describe the unspeakable tragedy that occurred in Connecticut. With the loss of so many lives, especially the young children, my thoughts and prayers go out to the families and the community around them. Many are attempting to politicize this issue, but as these innocent victims are still being buried, now is not the time. It is time to mourn their loss.

In the days ahead, law enforcement investigators will fully review the factors that led to this horrific incident. Once those details become clearer, the American public and elected officials can then have a frank discussion about all of the issues that played a role in this tragedy. But as this conversation unfolds, let me state clearly that I will continue to stand up for the 2nd Amendment rights of law-abiding Americans.

Again, thank you for sharing your views on this issue with me. If you have any further questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Congressional correspondence lackeys don't count form letters for much.
Write your own, keep it short and simple, make sure you clearly ID as in their district. EMail seems best these days, paper mail is slow and gets held for screening, then scanned and sent to the Email box anyway.

Use the form letters if you like, but don't use them as your ONLY method.

I did not use a form letter, I told them I was going to be direct and to the point.
That I did not support Diane Feinstein's purposed Assault Weapons ban, or any other infringements on our Second Amendment Right.

The responses I've gotten in Utah. My favorite response has come from my state government and sheriffs' office. (except the governor, his @$$ has to go next election)

Dear Mr. Utahgeoff:

Thank you for contacting me regarding your Second Amendment rights. This is a crucial issue and I appreciate the time you took to express your thoughts.

Recent and saddening acts of violence, such as those in Newtown and Aurora, have brought guns to national attention. These acts of violence, as terrible as they are, should not be used as justification to revoke rights outlined in the United States Constitution.

President Obama is urging Congress to pass an extensive ban on semiautomatic weapons. I am strongly opposed to such a bill. I am convinced that gun control measures will do nothing to prevent tragedies like that at Newtown, and will likely only make it harder for law-abiding citizens to protect themselves.

In June 2010, the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 in McDonald v. Chicago that the right to “keep and bear arms” was intended by our Founders to be an individual right, not merely the right of a militia. The opinion wisely held that the right to keep and bear arms is among the most fundamental rights necessary to this Nation’s system of ordered liberty and is deeply rooted in our history and tradition.

I support the Second Amendment and believe the right to keep and bear arms is a personal and absolute right. As a member of Congress, I will do all in my power to protect the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens.

To stay informed on this issue and others, feel free to sign up for my monthly e-letter by visiting stewart.house.gov. Again, thank you for contacting my office. If you have any other questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Sincerely,

Chris Stewart
Member of Congress
