    Letter from my congressman

    Dear Mr. N**l ,



    Thank you for contacting me to express your views concerning
    the Second Amendment of the Bill of Rights. I appreciate your comments
    and concerns. I believe the original intent of the Second Amendment was
    to protect each individual's right to keep and bear arms and I will
    continue to defend that right.



    As Alaska's Representative in Congress for thirty-five years,
    I have sponsored and cosponsored many bills and resolutions that ensure
    a law-abiding citizen's right to own firearms. In the past, I
    cosponsored The District of Columbia Personal Protection Act which would
    restore Second Amendment rights in the District of Columbia. I have also
    continued to oppose any ban on so-called "assault weapons" and will
    continue to contest similar legislation which may be introduced by my
    colleagues.



    In addition, I voted against the Brady Bill in the 103rd
    Congress and supported instant background checks as an alternative.
    Currently in the 110th Congress I have cosponsored various bills
    relating to the individual rights of Americans to bear arms including
    H.R. 226, The National Right-To-Carry Reciprocity Act. This bill would
    allow any person with a valid concealed firearm carrying permit or
    license, issued by a state, to carry a concealed firearm in other states
    which issue concealed firearm permits. I will continue to oppose any
    bill in the future which limits an individual's right to defend
    themselves. I will keep a watchful eye on any attempts by my colleagues
    to attack our Second Amendment right to bear arms.



    Once again, thank you for expressing your views on this issue. If you
    haven't already done so, I would encourage you to sign up for my
    e-newsletter at http://donyoung.house.gov/IMA/issue_subscribe.htm
    <http://donyoung.house.gov/IMA/issue_subscribe.htm > . This will allow me
    to provide you with updates on this and other important issues. If I can
    be of any assistance in the future, please do not hesitate to contact me





    Sincerely,

    DON YOUNG

    Congressman for All Alaska
    Ok, I'm sure he didn't right it himself, but i'm still impressed. I had written to him concerning a bill before the house concerning gun control. I wasn't aware of his impressive record on voting AGAINST gun control and voting FOR the 2nd amendment.

    Kudos to Rep. Young

    that was cool... there is hope
    http://www.allpoetry.com/Grunts%20Girl

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion

    Sorry, you can't have him till I take his place. And you can't have Sen Murkowski or Sen Stevens either (both big supporters of the 2nd amendment.


    Did you know that the University of Alaska has an anuual gun show? I love Alaska.

    I'll give you two Landrieu's, an Alexander, and a Jefferson for one Young.

    Thanks, but I must respectfully decline. I will keep Young over every other Rep that I've heard of...
