Below is the response I just received from Mr. Sterns on 2nd Amendment issues:

Dear Mr. L:
Thank you for contacting me regarding the need to protect our Second
Amendment rights. I welcome the opportunity to respond.

As a United States Congressman, I took an oath to "support and defend" the
Constitution, and this includes the Second Amendment. That's why I have
sponsored legislation, the "Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act,"
which prohibits frivolous lawsuits against the firearms industry, and why I
have consistently voted for legislation that protects our right to "keep and
bear arms." I believe that law-abiding Americans should be allowed to
possess firearms to protect their property, themselves and their loved ones.

There are already over 20,000 gun control laws on the books. Instead of
enacting even more gun control legislation, I believe that we should
vigorously prosecute and punish those criminals who unlawfully posses and
use firearms.

Thank you again for contacting me. If I can be of any further assistance on
this or another federal matter, please do not hesitate to contact me.
