    Response from Senator Hutchison

    Hello all, this is my first post here but I have been coming to this website for what seems like forever. I wrote Senator Hutchison on Monday and today she responded back to me about the AWB that will be discussed early next year. If my memory serves me correct she is set to retire in a few months but this is what she wrote back:

    Dear Friend:
    Thank you for contacting me regarding gun control legislation. I welcome your thoughts and comments on this issue.
    While we all support the strongest measures to ensure that guns do not end up in the wrong hands, I believe that one of the most powerful deterrents we have is the consistent, full enforcement of the numerous laws that already address many aspects of the problem. For instance, there are more than a dozen laws at the state and federal level that deal with the use, carrying, ownership, or trafficking of guns, and we must prosecute without qualification those who violate these laws.
    Rather than usurping the rights of law-abiding citizens, I believe we should vigorously prosecute those who use guns to commit crimes. I have worked to enact federal anti-crime legislation that imposes tough minimum sentences on those convicted of using firearms to commit crimes, prevents early parole for violent criminals, and provides federal funds to build new prisons and fund local law enforcement. I will continue to support legislation that fights crime and upholds our Second Amendment rights.
    On June 26, 2008, the Supreme Court upheld the individual right to keep and bear arms in District of Columbia v. Heller. I submitted an amicus brief to the Court in support of affirming the District of Columbia's gun ban as unconstitutional, and was joined by 55 Senators, 250 House members, and the Vice President of the United States. This historic decision will affect gun laws throughout the country that try to unjustly undermine our rights under the Second Amendment.

    I appreciate hearing from you, and I hope that you will not hesitate to keep in touch on any issue of concern to you.

    Sincerely,
    Kay Bailey Hutchison
    United States Senator

    She's already finished as senator. Ted Cruz will be sworn in as her replacement next month.

    Her "reply" said nothing at all of substance. I am not surprised.

    If you want a reply from a representative, go see them at their house.

    Never had 1 say "hey, you can't be here" ... in fact they all listen nicely and answer any question I pose directly without the typical political nonsense.

    Just don't go all psycho on 'em if you don't like their responses I think it's good enough to let them know that you'll stop on by to say hey!

    Her staff did a better job answering the question than she did.
