    I received the following email today from my congressman, Glenn Nye of the VA 2nd. For a freshman Democrat who campaigned with Barack Obama, this wasn't too bad. Sure, he used the "sportsmen and hunters" phrase, but other than that, it was nice to see him put that much 2A support in writing.

    Dear Mr. Xxxxxxx,



    Thank you for contacting me with your concern for the District of Columbia's gun ban. It is helpful to learn the views of my friends and neighbors in Tidewater, and I appreciate having your input.



    Like you, I believe the Constitution, specifically the Second Amendment, protects the individual right of every law abiding citizen to purchase firearms. I reject the notion that most gun control programs are an effective deterrent to crime. Instead of placing unconstitutional restrictions on gun ownership, we should concentrate our law enforcement efforts on the true problem - criminals - and not infringe on the Constitutional right of all Americans to protect themselves and their families. This is why I pledge to continue fighting crime while protecting the rights of law-abiding citizens, sportsmen and hunters. As Congress considers legislation that affect your Constitutional rights, be assured I will make it a priority to preserve your Second Amendment right to bear arms.



    Thank you again for sharing your views. Please feel free to call on me in the future if I may be of service to you or your family. If you would like more information about the issues I am working on in Congress, or if you would like to sign up to receive my monthly e-newsletter, I encourage you to visit my website at

    Sincerely,

    Glenn Nye

    Member of Congress

    Good response. But his actions will be louder than words.

    I remember seeing Nye on the list of "65 Democrats" who sent the letter to Holder telling him to back off. Not bad for a Democrat.

    I got the same email along with one about Medicare Advantage and one about S22 the land bill. We'll see what happens but so far a good start.

    I received same and one referring to immigration.

    Nye is more "conservative" (classic liberal) than the cackling hag he replaced.

    Drake was such a skeevy, double-crossing, backstabbing self-aggrandizer. She stomped all over the sovereign rights of the people of VA while she was in office. Ugly as a mud fence, too.

    Posts like this are so much better then an articulate, thought out response stating the actual facts. Glenn Nye will probably be a one term wonder. The Neo Cons in the VA Beach GOP want that seat back.

    So then you were a fan of Thelma Drake, I presume?

    I would guess "no" based on your avatar... but you never know for sure.

    What else would you have had me say, hmmm? How much more productive was your comment deprecating mine?

    Let us not forget, folks, that Democrat DOES NOT NECESSARILY EQUAL anti-gunner , nor does Republican NECESSARILY EQUAL supporter (i.e. Tom Davis, Rudy Giuliani, Mitt Romney)

    I'd love to hear more politicians like this, and frankly could care less about party affiliation. Better yet if his actions and votes bear out his words.

    He may be good on guns however, he voted for the porkulous bill for starters. I'm not going to vote for someone thats pro illegal immigration, pro high tax and pro bailout and would go along with cutting defense just because they say they support gun rights.
