    Self defense rights are human rights

    As an honest, law-abiding American I feel the need to reach out to you, my government servant. I am watching elected politicians go against the will of the people and their constituents in real time with little to no regard for the U.S. Constitution. I am so troubled by the reckless activities of you that I felt the need to research the oath that you took when you were elected into office. I realize it may have been some time since you've seen these words (we'll talk about term limits another time) so I felt compelled to share them with you: I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God. I am curious how you can ignore the phrase "I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States" because your actions contradict these very words. You may choose to interpret the Second Amendment however you wish, but it's never been up for interpretation. It means what it says. Your open attack on commonly used semi-automatic rifles is a direct violation of the oath above. It's not debatable. It's clear your research is flawed or purposely deceptive because semi-automatic rifles - which you refer to as the inaccurate and fabricated name of "assault weapons" - are only used in less than 4% of gun murders. Handguns - used in 64% of gun murders - are also being deceptively targeted in your assault on our rights. That's a tool that the majority of Americans use to defend their families with, yet you seek to limit and outlaw them all. You are actively pushing to limit access to 68% of the tools honest, law-abiding Americans lawfully use to defend themselves and their families. Self defense is a God-given right. It is a human right. The fact that you seek to render me and my family defenseless is inexcusable. You all refuse to enforce gun laws already on the books, yet seek to implement even more. You push to "defund police" yet push to limit my means of protection. It's as if you want Americans to be placed in danger. I'm eager for you to prove me wrong. Banning any type of firearm while ignoring criminal elements that continue to exist while thinking it will deter crime in any way is equivalent to moving a rabid dog's food bowl to a different part of the room. The dog won't miss a meal. Criminals don't and won't follow your new laws. Let me be clear - you will not rob me of my God-given human right to defend myself and my family. Not while you benefit from my tax dollars paying to protect your unconstitutional self from those same threats with those same self defense weapons you seek to prevent me from owning. You people forget who you work for. You are MY servant. You work for ME. You will learn what your place is or me and every other freedom-loving American will vote you out of office. You can no longer deceive us with sound bites and fabricated statistics. We are on to you. You are creating a human rights crisis that you cannot fix once it is put in motion. Law-abiding Americans of all political parties, classes, creeds, colors, and walks of life have reached the limits of our tolerance with unqualified public servants like you attempting to dictate our protections away and ruling like a drunk tyrant outside of the confines of the laws our forefathers outlined for us in the U.S. Constitution. Get it together or plan your retirement. We are "woke" and you woke us. Read your oath above again if it helps, but learn it. A reckoning is upon us.  Respectfully, Law-abiding American

    Thank members of Congress for protecting our Second Amendment rights against the BATFE

    Sir/Madam, It is a very rare occurrence that constitution-supporting Americans have the opportunity to thank elected members of Congress for their efforts in protecting our Second Amendment rights. This is one of those rare occurrences and I wanted to make sure I took the opportunity to thank you for your efforts in standing up to the unconstitutional and overreaching bureaucracy known as the BATFE in your December 22, 2020 letter to the DOJ and BATFE. Ms. Regina Lombardo and some of her staff appear to be using their organization and what they presume to be “power” to retaliate against and throw a childish fit at law-abiding American companies. In turn, they were willing to risk making millions of honest, law abiding Americans potential felons overnight for legal items that they had legally purchased and possessed, all during their childish tantrum.  Knowing that millions of law-abiding gun owners in America are willing to mobilize to thwart unconstitutional efforts by any organization, we hope that you and other members of Congress will see value in your oath to protect the United States Constitution. I bid you the sincerest of “thank you’s”.  Respectfully, American Voter

    Suspend all US House and Senate payroll until unemployment rates return to pre-Covid-19

    For the six months leading up to March 2020 when the COVID-19 pandemic hysteria begin to grip the country, the United States had averaged an unemployment rate of 3.68%. The economy was also functioning at remarkably high numbers. Then the “pandemic” hit. Unemployment rates skyrocketed as panic ensued and local, state, and federal governments forced businesses to shut down and citizens to stay home. This decimated the economy and employment. With the pandemic, many Americans found themselves without jobs and struggled to pay bills and feed their families. Many Americans were fortunate enough to work for companies that continued to pay them even though they didn’t go to work, and many Americans also qualified for very handsome handouts from the government in the form of unemployment benefits. But many Americans weren’t so lucky. But do you know who continues to receive full pay and benefits? U.S. Congressmen and Senators. They have zero incentive to correct this economy and improve unemployment rates. The pandemic does not affect them. In fact, they are receiving full pay and doing less work than ever before. This must stop! Let’s demand their pay be suspended until employment rates reach pre-COVID-19 limits. Why just the employment rate? Because the economy will automatically improve as the employment rate does. If these unaffected politicians suddenly can’t pay their bills or feed their children, they will work with qualified people to assemble a truly non-partisan plan that will stimulate businesses and the economy, thus automatically increasing employment. We only need to shoot for one number and it affects all others. (Here’s the U. S. government link to employment rates.  https://data.bls.gov/timeseries/LNS14000000 3.68% is the magic number to begin paying members of the House and Senate again, but not until then. Maybe if they actually have skin in the game they will actually work with one another to restore our economy and the American people. If not, let them learn what it feels like to struggle to put food on your family’s table.  (I also encourage all states to form a similar petition to defund all state governors’ payroll until they restore employment and economy numbers to pre-COVID-19 measures as well.  #skininthegame

    I support Missouri’s lawmakers as they protect the Second Amendment

    As an honest, law-abiding American I would like you to know that I vehemently support the State of Missouri and Senator Eric Burlison regarding Senate Bill No. 367, more commonly and accurately known as the “Second Amendment Preservation Act”.  The United States Constitution does not give Americans rights nor does it give the federal government authority over the American people. Rather it recognizes Americans’ inalienable rights and puts restrictions on the federal government. I am encouraged by the Senate in the State of Missouri for taking this necessary step with Senate Bill No. 367 to nullify unconstitutional infringements on the people of Missouri with overreaching gun laws by the federal government where they possess no jurisdiction to implement nor enforce said infringing laws.  I am personally doing my part to encourage the members of my own state to follow these brave steps by Mr. Burlison and other members of the Missouri State Senate in righting the unconstitutional wrongs perpetrated by the United States government onto the law-abiding citizens of the great state of Missouri.  “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” The words “shall not be infringed” apply to an overreaching United States government, too. The Tenth Amendment recognizes states’ rights to point out and nullify infringements and anti-gun laws by the federal government unconstitutionally forced upon citizens of all fifty U.S. states.  Respectfully yours, American Voter
