    Dear XXXX:

    Thank you for taking the time to contact me and giving me the chance to respond. It is an honor to serve the people of North Carolina here in Washington, D.C., and your communication is a vital part of our legislative process.

    The shooting of Rep. Giffords and others in Tucson, AZ, is a senseless tragedy and my thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families. As a nation we must take thoughtful steps to ensure that this never happens again. Many have used this tragedy as a platform to push for further gun reform. In fact, the evidence has shown that it was an isolated incident, and thus further restricting Second Amendment rights is not an appropriate response.

    To that end, I am opposed to any measures that would impose further limitations on the right to bear arms. I stand behind our Constitution and the fundamental rights the Second Amendment affords all Americans.

    Again, thank you for contacting me; I hope you will continue to do so as we work to address the serious issues impacting our great nation. If you would like more information on issues important to North Carolina and the Second Congressional District, or to sign up for my newsletter, please visit my website at

    "Laws that forbid the carrying of arms...disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes...Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man."

    I received the same response early last week or so. I was glad to see that she seems to be on our side, or at least is thinking through this situation logically!
