A response from "my" Senator Tim Kaine. If he's yours too, you might consider this response:

Dear Mr. Harman:

Thank you for contacting me to share your views on proposals to reduce gun violence. I would like to provide some additional information on this important issue.

No one can deny that gun violence is a serious problem in this country today. We owe it to the victims of the growing number of mass shootings to vigorously debate specific and comprehensive proposals that can keep our communities safer. The right approach focuses on many issues - improvements to the mental health system, better security protocols and common sense rules about gun use, including keeping firearms out of the hands of dangerous individuals.

On the sixth anniversary of the horrible shootings at Virginia Tech, I took to the Senate floor to remember the 32 Hokies who lost their lives. The tragedy happened after a dangerous young man illegally purchased weapons due to flaws in the background records check system. I was pleased to cast my vote on April 17, 2013, in support of S. 649, the Safe Communities, Safe Schools Act legislation, which included tougher laws on gun trafficking and straw purchases, and ways to improve safety in schools. I also voted in support of a bipartisan proposal to expand background checks on gun laws, but unfortunately a filibuster of this measure prevented it from passing. I also voted for a ban on large-capacity magazines, and for a proposal to ban combat-style weapons. I am disappointed a minority of the Senate chose to use the filibuster to block common-sense reforms.

As your U.S. Senator, I will continue to work to bring that kind of comprehensive approach that will strengthen the safety of our communities, while protecting our Second Amendment rights. As a gun owner who worked with others to constitutionally guarantee Virginians the right to hunt, I know that you can be a strong supporter of the Second Amendment without tolerating the gun tragedies that are too often a part of our daily lives.

Thank you once again for contacting me.

Sounds like he needs to be replaced in the next election.

I am not at all surprised. At least you got a response from Sen Kaine. I sent them both emails and only Sen Warner sent me this:

Thank you for contacting me to share your thoughts on legislative efforts to reduce gun violence in the United States.



On December 14, 2012, 20 innocent children and six adults lost their lives in one of the worst, most tragic shootings to ever occur in the United States. As a parent of three daughters, this was the ultimate nightmare. Like the Virginia Tech and Columbine shootings, this tragedy unfolded in what was once regarded as a safe haven free of crime and violence: a school.

During the Senate's recent consideration of the Safe Communities, Safe Schools Act of 2013 (S. 649), I was very disappointed that we could not reach the necessary 60 votes for passage of a reasonable, bipartisan amendment to strengthen background checks. This compromise legislation put forward by Senators Manchin and Toomey would have closed the gun show loophole and prohibited the commercial sale of guns to those who are seriously mentally ill or have a criminal record while also upholding Second Amendment rights. Furthermore, its failure, which occurred one day after the sixth anniversary of the Virginia Tech tragedy, jeopardizes passage of the underlying gun safety bill, which includes our bipartisan CAMPUS Safety Act.



There was also significant debate over proposals to ban certain types of weapons and magazines. I voted against these bans because, after talking to numerous experts, I believe the most effective thing we can do to reduce gun-related violence and keep guns out of the hands of those prohibited by law from possessing them is to pass a strong background check law.



Moving forward, I believe that the Senate should continue to work to pass effective measures that will help to keep our children and communities safe. These include broadening background checks for gun purchases, making improvements to our mental health system so we can provide help to those with dangerous mental illnesses before it is too late, as well as measures to prevent gun trafficking, ensure all appropriate records are submitted into the background check database, and improve school and campus safety.


Warner is at least still opposing bans and his history prior to this has been good. I think with the right encouragement he would vote to uphold gun rights.

Libs poo-poo the NRA proposal to put armed guards or allowing armed teachers in our schools. But they think nothing of armed bank guards, armed guards and metal detectors in all federal/state buildings, and paying for a host of personal armed guards details for government officials.

Should I deduce that they value their money, judges and politicians more that their own kids?

Donít those same politicians see the run on ammo and firearms from the American people? Does that seem like behavior of a society that is in favor of more gun control or less?

They didnít listen to the vast majority of Americans that said ďNOĒ to bank and auto bail-outs. Apparently we were too stupid to understand the ramifications of not giving billions to financially irresponsible institutions with little to no oversight. Turns out we knew better than they did.

Now, apparently we Americans are also too stupid to believe that the Constitution of the United States is the true law of this great country. These idiots that canít even come up with a budget in what is it now, 3 or 4 years, now feel that they are responsible to protect us from criminal by passing laws that restrict our Constitutionally guaranteed rights. Criminals arenít shaking in there sneakers (if they are, itís from laughter), but knowledgeable law abiding citizens better tighten their laces before their boots come off.

We need to vote these bums out.


Remember this: Everytime I blink, you disappear.
