@SenatorBurr - Nicely done, numnut. #Guns

Said by the guy who works in offices protected by armed guards, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week ... And said by the guy whose visitors pass through metal detectors and are subject to impromptu search:

"As you are aware, the issue of gun control and the Second Amendment has been at the forefront of our national dialogue lately.  Some in Washington, including President Obama, are seeking to address violence in our society by restricting the rights of law-abiding Americans to own firearms.  This is not the right way to address this issue.  I am open to having a conversation about ways in which our nation can address mental health issues and reduce violence, but I will not stand by while the President and others try to restrict the rights of law-abiding American citizens.  I will fight any effort to further infringe on the Second Amendment rights of American citizens, such as Senator Feinstein's proposed ban on so-called "assault weapons."  Put simply, the proposals being put forward on based on emotions, and that isn't the way to legislate about anything."

Yeah Senator,  it's not rational to take away semi-automatic weapons from idiots who will use them to mow down our children.   There's no room for common sense and rational thinking in our Republican Party.

North Carolina deserves better than Republican Senator Richard Burr.
