    Weird... when reading what he thinks about gun control it sounds very close to almost all the responses from other representatives I have read here at NWFA.




    "Congressman Smith Statement on President's Plan to Reduce Gun Violence

    Washington, Jan 16 - House Armed Services Committee Ranking Member Adam Smith (WA-09) released the following statement after President Obama announced his proposal to reduce gun violence:"

    “America is facing an epidemic of gun violence. We need to find a comprehensive approach that improves access to mental health services, closes loopholes in background check requirements, and bans military-style and excessively violent assault weapons and high-capacity magazines.

    “Today, the President offered an initial plan to reduce and prevent gun violence through executive actions. It is now Congress’ turn to act to create lasting reforms that keep our communities safe. As part of the House Gun Violence Prevention Task Force, I will work with my colleagues to review the President’s plan, as well as other proposals, to put policies in place that protect our children and communities while maintaining the rights granted by the Second Amendment.“

    Unfortunately, most politicians do follow party lines because they want to get re-elected and that is tough to do without the party support. It would be nice to see someone get elected out of the desire to actually represent the voters rather than getting into the club and staying there.

    Maybe if we write him a few hundred thousand e-mails he'll change his mind?

    Well I am glad he's not talking about my weapons. They are very docile and non-violent. :p

    That has got to be one of the dumbest statements I have heard yet.
