State Representative Diane Patrick provided this response to an email asking her position on new gun control laws and support for changes to several existing laws.
I have a record of supporting Second Amendment rights, and I have no plans to file any legislation pushing for any additional gun control laws. Thank you for sharing your opinions. I appreciate hearing from constituents. Happy New Year!
Glad to hear that Representative Patrick and as I said in my follow up email; I also want a pledge not to support legislation filed by others.
Call, write, email, show up; keep pestering them until they realize this is any area where they should not even think about pushing restrictions.
I’m not sure if I agree with many people’s sentiment that gun control laws have no chance; Congress has pulled too many shenanigans for me to be comfortable with that thought. For way too long, We the People haven’t pulled our weight in making sure our representatives are just that.
We need to stand up and tell those making laws and regulations to increase liberty, not restrict it. We need to stand up and tell those pushing ineffective ‘gun control laws’ to address the real problems; mental health and a revolving door justice system to start.
Let’s not settle for another legislative act that hurts many for the actions of a few; we are better than this.
Please join the discussion.
