    A little while back I wrote Senator Cornyn a message regarding the AWB talk that began surfacing along with the letter to Eric Holder. I received a reply today that I wanted to post here for everyone. I appreciate Senator Cornyn's time and reply.

    I encourage everyone to keep informing our representatives, no matter what party affiliation, what we think and why we think it. Don't let them forget where they come from. Thank them when they do something you approve of. Let them hear about it when they don't.

    Stay in their ear, no matter who it is. This is our country :patriot:

    Dear Mrs. K[edit]:

    Thank you for contacting me about federal firearms laws. I appreciate having the benefit of your comments on this matter.

    It is essential to safeguard the law-abiding citizen's constitutional right to own and use firearms designed for legitimate purposes such as hunting, target shooting, collecting, and self-protection. Restricting this right runs counter to the intent of our Founding Fathers, who expressly guaranteed that citizens would retain the right to keep and bear arms.

    As a former Texas Supreme Court Justice and Attorney General, I have firsthand knowledge of crime-fighting policies that work, and I believe that citizens' Second Amendment rights should not be restricted because of the actions of criminals. Rather, we must respect the rights of law-abiding citizens and focus our attention on the source of violent crime: criminals who use firearms to commit crimes. I believe that strictly enforcing the law and meting out longer sentences for career criminals and those who use firearms when committing crimes will reduce crime more effectively than gun or equipment bans, which primarily serve to take firearms away from law-abiding citizens.

    I appreciate the opportunity to represent Texans in the United States Senate, and you may be certain that I will continue working with my colleagues to protect our Second Amendment rights. Thank you for taking the time to contact me.
