Some of this was available on the NRA site with some additional comments of my own. Hopefully you can utilize it in your own writing style for your letter writing campaigns.

As your constituent, I strongly urge you to oppose any legislation to ban so-called "assault weapons" and "large" ammunition magazines.

A previous ban on these inanimate objects was in effect from 1994-2004 and had no discernible effect on violent crime. In fact, a study of the ban mandated by Congress found: "At best, the assault weapons ban can have only a limited effect on total gun murders, because the banned weapons and magazines were never involved in more than a modest fraction of all gun murders."

Tens of millions of Americans choose to own semi-automatic firearms with ammunition magazines that hold more than 10 rounds for the same reason as law enforcement officers: they are effective for self defense. One never knows how many rounds he or she will need for self defense or defense of others, or how many criminals may attack. Thus having a firearm that allows its lawful user to discharge multiple shots can often be the difference between life and death. In fact, a number of studies have shown that firearms are used for self defense hundreds of thousands of times to 2.5 million times annually.

Rather than expanding previously failed legislation that won't curb violence, but will affect law-abiding gun owners, I urge you to support legislation to enhance school security and improve our nationís ailing mental health system.

I urge you and your fellow lawmakers to read the final chapters of Lt Col. Dave Grossman's book "On Killing: The Psychological Cost of Learning to Kill in War and Society." He builds solidly the effects of what our young men are feeding their minds with to commit these atrocities without conscience. His credentials include: American Board for Certification in Homeland Security; Member, American College of Forensic Examiners Institute.


Please reply to me indicating your position on Sen. Feinstein's most recent proposal.
