Today I received a refreshing response from WA house representative Ed Orcutt as follows:
I appreciate having some elected officials who get it.XXXXXX,
I am opposed to gun control as well. And I have even told that to the gun control proponents (although I am hearing more people say stop gun control than support it). The problem that leads to mass shootings is the lack of respect for human life and the lack of respect for the laws protecting human life -- not the gun, not the ammunition, not the size of the clip.
