I will have to imagine his staff has been somewhat busy so I will not deride on the time it took to answer, specially since he is the first one to actually respond to my emails.
Dear Mr. Gonzalez,
Thank you for writing me regarding the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. I understand this is an important issue and I appreciate hearing your thoughts.
The Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution states “the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” I hold the fundamental belief the Second Amendment should not be altered. At the same time, I have always been open to measures that would keep guns out of the hands of criminals and the mentally ill.
In light of the recent tragedies, some have suggested restricting gun ownership and have suggested ways to curb gun violence. I am always open to ideas on how to stop violent crimes, however I have concerns when these suggestions are solely directed toward restricting gun ownership. Given the Constitution’s clear stance on gun ownership, I will continue to support an individual’s right to own firearms.
It is an honor and a privilege to serve you as your United States Senator. I appreciate you offering your opinion on this issue. If I can ever be of any assistance to you, please do not hesitate to contact me.
United States Senator
I would call that a one in the plus column.
Now I shall wait for the rest of my reps.
