Dear Ms Hoff;
I am sending you a copy of the letter that I sent to my United States Senator.
1512 North Church Road
Hartford, CT 10002
Dear Mister Joe Lieberman;
I am so upset about the masacre of Sandy Hook schoolchildren so close to us, in our small, quiet state. I think it is we time that a peaceful nation does something to protect our citizens.
What does a 20 year old child need an assault rifle for or other automatic weapons, for that matter? Is there a deer hunting season in Connecticut? Are the British coming? Are there planes loaded with Saudi Terrorists to shoot down befoe they land at LaGuardia?
I would think that the answers to those questions is no, no, and no. A pistol in a dresser drawer is one thing, you know, to stop a burgular. A rifle that can fire three rounds a second and do nothing other than kill human beings is another.
You are the chairman of the SENATE HOMELAND SECURITY AND GOVERNMENTAL AFFAIRS committee. Can’t you stand up to the Natinal Rifle Association? Or have they made contributions to election too?
I want you take responsibility for this shooting: for allowing the Assault Weapons Ban to expire in 2004 and for putting miltary guns in the hands of deranged individuals.
Schools, shopping malls and movie theaters? Are there no safe places any more?
Mrs. Hilary Hatsbury
Thank you Hilary Hatsbury!
