My letter to Senator Isakson

Sent this by email tonight. For subject, I put "Gun Control/Pandora's Box":
Sen. Harry Reid's gun control bill may be as much as finding ways to turn gun owners into felons as it is about conducting more background checks. 
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." 
I believe you are making a short-sighted error in helping Democrats open this Pandora's Box. 
Your dinner with Obama Wednesday night may become a defining moment of your service as senator. Your legacy is fast becoming one where you are seen as betraying those of us in Georgia you were supposed to represent.
