A Comment about the illegality of S. 679 (Vanity)
26 March 2013 | txnativegop

Posted on 03/26/2013 9:22:25 AM PDT by txnativegop

My comment was sent to both Virginia Senators in response to Senate Bill S.679. I hope other FReepers will contact their Senators as well. If you wish to use my comment verbatim, please feel free to do so.


TOPICS: News/Current Events; Politics/Elections; Your Opinion/Questions
KEYWORDS: guncontrol; guns; secondamendment
Senator ___________ I am writing this comment to you today to ask you to vote against S. 679 when the bill comes up for a vote. The bill is a violation of the 2nd, 4th, 5th, 6th, and 14th Amendments to the Constitution. The bill calls for the registration of all guns and gun owners. Such coercion would disuade some citizens from purchasing firearms as they see fit; also, the Registration section of S.679 is an outright invasion of the privacy and anti-descrimination rights that American citizens enjoy. I am a gun owner, that fact does not make me responsible the actions of people who commit crimes with firearms, and persuant to the 5th and 6th Amendments to the Constitution, I can not be punished for said actions without due process.

Thank you for your time and consideration,

I used it to write my Senators and the spell checker caught it.

So you advocate sending misspelled letters to Congress that make us look ignorant?

You are familiar with the term “typo” yes? It happens. If they dismiss the argument because of misspelled words, they are revealing their character or the lack of it.

Such things need not be perfect. Have a nice day!

A litte overdone don’t you think? I understand the point you make, but you take it too far. There were three words misspelled, not the entire comment. Sheesh! LOL

All I was doing was giving people a clean copy to use.

You're the one who took exception.

In that case, I will offer my sincerest apology to you, E.Pluribus Unum.

I misinterpreted what you were trying to say.

Did you?

“does not make me responsible FOR the the actions of people...” If you’re going to make a clean copy, make sure you get it all. ;)

So it’s better to send one without misspellings?

I just went for misspellings.

Don't fix the grammar or they'll call you a Nazi.

I would prefer it, but the original was typed on the email comment section of Senator Warner; I did not notice a spell check function either. Believing as I did about the correctness of the spelling, I sent it to Warner.

I personally prefer properly spelled documents, however, I doubt seriously that Warner’s staff will notice it, and if they do oh well. I am sure that my comment was among the best spelled and gramatically correct comments they receive.

Which is why they feel free to ignore us.

If they are going to ignore us for proper use of the English language, why bother sending anything to them in the first place?

That is a wonderful commentary on the stupidity of Democratic senators.

Warner (D) ..... the email with misspellings will probably be taken seriously because they’ll think it’s a low-info voter constituent. :-)

No ... you are obviously NOT! The comment was a tongue-in-cheek slap at Warner/Dems!

MissMagnolia,

If you know of a gun control/Second Amendment ping list please forward this corrected version to them.

I am writing this comment to you today to ask you to vote against S. 679 when the bill comes up for a vote. The bill is a violation of the 2nd, 4th, 5th, 6th, and 14th Amendments to the Constitution. The bill calls for the registration of all guns and gun owners. Such coercion would dissuade some citizens from purchasing firearms as they see fit; also, the Registration section of S.679 is an outright invasion of the privacy and anti-discrimination rights that American citizens enjoy. I am a gun owner, that fact does not make me responsible the action of people who commit crimes with firearms, and pursuant to the 5th and 6th Amendments to the Constitution, I can not be punished for said actions without due process.

Thank you for your time and consideration,
