The Outrider

“Man is a machine, but a very peculiar machine. He is a machine which, in the right circumstances, and with the right treatment, can know that he is a machine, and having fully realized this, he may find the ways to cease to be a machine.” — P.D. Ouspensky

Response from Senator Portman


I fired off some emails to all that count here at home. I hit Rep. Joyce (R), Senator Sherrod Brown, a man so far left he makes Lenin look like a tea partier, and Senator Rob Portman. So far the score is Joyce: former prosecutor, shaping up to be a RINO, probably for the ban at least on high (standard) capacity mags.  Brown: If he leaned any more to the left his ear would touch the ground. He is all for it (for the children, of course,) This is after multiple communications from him stating he cherishes our Second Amendment rights. What a hoot that was.  Senator Portman, who seemed to throw some barbs at the prez, at least seems to be going in the right direction.  Here is the response I received from him.

Dear Craig,

 

Thank you for contacting me to express your views about the President’s gun control proposals.  It is good to hear from you. 

 

As you know, President Obama recently issued 23 executive actions and endorsed gun control legislative initiatives following the terrible tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School. 

 

I had hoped President Obama would look to address the root causes of senseless acts of violence and work with Congress to develop a comprehensive plan to lessen the likelihood of these kinds of tragic incidents in the future.  Unfortunately, the President has chosen to act unilaterally wherever he can and focus on new gun bans which I believe would undermine the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens. 

 

In response to tragic attacks like the one at Sandy Hook Elementary, I remain committed to ensuring that those who suffer from mental illness, a common thread in these instances, receive proper care, that current gun laws are enforced, and that school safety is enhanced as we address the deeper issue of violence in our society. 

 

Thank you again for taking the time to contact my office.  For more information, please visit my website at www.portman.senate.gov.  Please keep in touch. EMAIL.BEGINHIDE.MERGE

 

Sincerely,

Rob Portman

U.S. Senator
