    Great, Now I am getting emails from Obama so here is my response.

    Got this today from whitehouse.gov

    Dear _______

    Thank you for taking the time to write. I have heard from many Americans regarding firearms policy and gun violence in our Nation, and I appreciate your perspective. From Aurora to Newtown to the streets of Chicago, we have seen the devastating effects gun violence has on our American family. I join countless others in grieving for all those whose lives have been taken too soon by gun violence.

    Like the majority of Americans, I believe the Second Amendment guarantees an individual right to bear arms. In this country, we have a strong tradition of gun ownership that has been handed down from generation to generation. Hunting and sport shooting are part of our national heritage. Yet, even as we acknowledge that almost all gun owners in America are responsible, when we look at the devastation caused by gun violence—whether in high-profile tragedies or the daily heartbreak that plagues our cities—we must ask ourselves whether we are doing enough.

    While reducing gun violence is a complicated challenge, protecting our children from harm should not be a divisive one. Most gun owners agree that we can respect the Second Amendment while keeping an irresponsible, law-breaking few from inflicting harm on a massive scale. Most also agree that if we took commonsense steps to curtail gun violence, there would be fewer atrocities like the one that occurred in Newtown. We will not be able to stop every violent act, but if there is even one thing we can do to reduce gun violence—if even one life can be saved—then we have an obligation to try.

    That is why I asked Vice President Joe Biden to identify concrete steps we can take to keep our children safe, help prevent mass shootings, and reduce the broader epidemic of gun violence in this country. He met with over 200 groups representing a broad cross-section of Americans and heard their best ideas. I have put forward a specific set of proposals based off of his efforts, and in the days ahead, I intend to use whatever weight this office holds to make them a reality.

    My plan gives law enforcement, schools, mental health professionals, and the public health community some of the tools they need to help reduce gun violence. These tools include strengthening the background check system, helping schools hire more resource officers and counselors and develop emergency preparedness plans, and ensuring mental health professionals know their options for reporting threats of violence. And I directed the Centers for Disease Control to study the best ways to reduce gun violence—because it is critical that we understand the science behind this public health crisis.

    As important as these steps are, they are not a substitute for action from Congress. To make a real and lasting difference, members of Congress must also act. As part of my comprehensive plan, I have called on them to pass some specific proposals right away. First, it is time to require a universal background check for anyone trying to buy a gun. Second, Congress should renew the 10-round limit on magazines and reinstate and strengthen the assault weapons ban. We should get tougher on those who buy guns with the purpose of selling them to criminals, and we should impose serious punishments on anyone who helps them do this.

    These are reasonable, commonsense measures that have the support of the majority of the American people. But change will not come unless the American people demand it from their lawmakers. Now is the time to do the right thing for our children, our communities, and the country we love. We owe the victims of heartbreaking national tragedies and the countless unheralded tragedies each year nothing less than our best effort—to seek consensus in order to save lives and ensure a brighter future for our children.

    Thank you, again, for writing. I encourage you to visit Now is the time | The White House to learn more about my Administration’s approach.

    Sincerely,

    Barack Obama

    MY REPSONSE:
    Dr. Mr President
    I know that you personally had nothing to do with crafting this letter. It was written by a committee of your staff and the anti Constitution leftists you surround yourself with. None the less, I give you my response.

    You say
    Like the majority of Americans, I believe the Second Amendment guarantees an individual right to bear arms. In this country, we have a strong tradition of gun ownership that has been handed down from generation to generation. Hunting and sport shooting are part of our national heritage. Yet, even as we acknowledge that almost all gun owners in America are responsible, when we look at the devastation caused by gun violence—whether in high-profile tragedies or the daily heartbreak that plagues our cities—we must ask ourselves whether we are doing enough.
    I don't give a flyin hoot what you say you believe. Your actions dictate what I believe. Hunting and sport shooting are not protected by the Second Amendment and have nothing to do with it. The devastation caused by gun violence has nothing to do with guns but more with the people behind those guns, and none of them go through background checks to acquire those guns.

    Please stop repeating the lie that
    ["These are reasonable, commonsense measures that have the support of the majority of the American people."
    These are neither reasonable or supported by a majority of any group other than the three million metros that watch MSNBC. I

    I take exception to your rhetoric "
    change will not come unless the American people demand it from their lawmakers."
    The law makers have nothing to do with, or any power over, an inalienable right.

    I also take exception to the statement that
    "Now is the time to do the right thing for our children, our communities, and the country we love. We owe the victims of heartbreaking national tragedies and the countless unheralded tragedies each year nothing less than our best effort—to seek consensus in order to save lives and ensure a brighter future for our children."
    I have big news for you Mr President: I did not shoot those precious children in Connecticut. I am as visibly upset about that tragedy as you are if not more. But I had nothing to do with it so stop trying to punish me!
    Perhaps if the shooter had been able to loose a soccer game or know the score of his tee ball game he would have learned a few valuable life lessons that could have molded him into something other than the monster he turned out to be. Perhaps he could have learned that the best way to stop a bully is to whack him upside the head instead of being threatened with expulsion for any display of violence. Perhaps the zero tolerance polices of the past 30 years are the real culprit turning out adults that are nothing more than self aggrandizing fantasy players in a fantasy game of life, who just can't handle the real world where there are winners and looser's, and good and evil and right and wrong. Where getting shot in the streets is painful then maybe they wouldn't say "Nobody told me it was gonna hurt so bad" as they often do. The same streets that can see teens shooting teens and nobody sees nothin when the cops show up to investigate. I am not responsible for those shootings either so stop punishing me and making me the pariah for your so called gun violence agenda.

    You said

    more political BS Gun Violence isn't a disease it is a symptom. A symptom of 50 years of progressive liberalism's attempt at social engineering for the sake of power retention, run amok.

    One more thing Mr President; Your email did not have an opt out option or I would have used it to remove my email address from your list. In fact where in the heck did you get my email.
    Anyway, that is my two cents and the complete waste of fifteen minutes of my life.

    ps. I have news for you; In case you haven't noticed, Joe Biden is bloviating buffoon.
    Tolerance of the intolerant leads to the destruction of tolerance. “You are also reminded that any inappropriate remarks or jokes concerning security may result in your arrest,” in the land of the free.

    Don't you just love form letters. Sounds more like he's making a pitch for gun control.

    He came from the Chicago machine. To be successful with that start, he is anti-gun by definition. We use logic, antis use emotion. Emailing a politician is a waste of electrons: if he or she is one of us, it's unnecessary, if one of them you're not going to convert him or her.

    I agree with everything you replied to the Jackass. Especially your post script.
    You are really on his list, now, like a lot of us... Blessings to you, Sir.

    All gun owners believe this. Let the law abiding citizens own/carry what they want, when they want, wherever they want and I think he'd be surprised how well it worked!

    And I mean everything from a BB gun up to full autos and other military firearms. If it is categorized as a firearm, it should be 100% unrestricted!

    That is exactly what the Second Amendment is about!

    No one has ever heard me say that I "hate" cops, because I don't. This is why I will never trust one again though: You just never know...
