Seriously, I have to ask. Are you short-sighted in your desire to help the Democrats move talk of gun control and background checks to the floor of the Senate. Or are you intentionally complicit in the treachery?
The Heritage Foundation notes:
"Under Senator Harry Reid’s (D-NV) gun control bill (S. 649), if somebody steals your firearm or you lose it, you can go to prison for up to five years if you have not reported the theft or loss to local police and to Attorney General Eric Holder within 24 hours.
"The provision merits ridicule for treating as a felon someone who misplaces a firearm and does not report it to the police and the federal government fast enough."
You've said in past letters you want a serious discussion on gun issues. Yet you help Democrats move forward despite their exaggeration and insincerity.
Even the president last week dared to claim the Newtown killings were carried out with a "fully automatic weapon."
You tremendously disappoint those who elected you. The legacy you are creating for yourself may well be one of someone who sold out liberty for the sake of debate and compromise with a den of vipers.
