Who Lives in Georgia?

I just saw the following story on Yahoo:
http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/ticket/g...-politics.html

Basically, Rep. Gingrey doesn't seem to get what an AR-15 is for, or why you may need one. Maybe some of our GA residents can shoot him an email or letter, and let him in on a few reasons? I believe this 'Republican' needs to hear from his constituency.

What a *********!

I don't live in his district but I used to live in Cynthia McKinney's. Now I need to decide who's worse.

I live in his district. Here is what I sent him:

"I was alarmed to see your comments in the Marietta Daily Journal! http://mdjonline.com/view/full_story...ome_lead_story


We have put our trust in you as our representative, and I, frankly, feel betrayed. Private, interstate sales are not the business of the Federal Govt., and your comments about larger capacity magazines sounded like Vice President Biden! Please ask your friend, Jay Wallace, to explain high capacity magazines to you. Liberty is liberty, and the Second Amendment is sacrosanct!


I have voted for you in every election, but I will never support a politician who will not protect the Second Amendment the way it was written. As of right now, I seriously doubt I will support you again."

I am also in his district. Just sent an email through his website:

"I am concerned with recent comments you have made about restrictions on the capacity of firearm magazines - in an article you are quoted as asking 'why' someone would need them.
I can give you an example of why - and it happened in GA just a few weeks ago. There was a woman in Loganville whose house was broken into, when she was at home with her children. She hid, and the man systematically searched the house until she was found. Luckily she was armed, with a revolver (6 shots), and she shot the man, hitting him 5 times. He lived, but the threat was stopped.

She shot the gun empty. If there were limits on magazine capacities, then everyone would be placed under a similar limit (10 rounds is the number being thrown around these days). My question is - what if there were more than one person breaking in? Should a person in that situation be forced to carry extra magazines to their hiding place just in case there is more than one attacker?

Lets look at what police have - typically a sidarm carrying 15-17 rounds in a magazine. Why should they need this? Does a police officer regularly encounter more than one or two criminals at a time? It seems to me that the preparation that an officer has should be the same preparation that a citizen has against criminals. Police even have partners, and backup on call - and they still feel that to be adequately prepared for one or two people, they need that much ammunition.

This type of legislation against capacity is also largely ineffective and only serves as a 'feel good' that we have 'done something'. It will not limit violent crime, or even gun crime.

Finally, the 'why' is that it doesn't matter 'why'. As a free, law-abiding citizen I should have the right to purchase whatever I want, regardless of what someone else *might* do with the same object - whether it be guns, cars, alcohol, etc. that can all be abused.

I and many other gun owners in your district will be carefully watching your comments and actions in any upcoming gun control debate. Many of us are single-issue voters. If you support any type of control or restriction on the second amendment - any - you will lose our vote."
