Opposing Assault Weapons Ban
I stand firmly opposed to the Assault Weapons Ban of 2013 because the bill would be burdensome to law-abiding citizens. The name of the bill is also misleading to the public because the bill attempts to regulate far more than assault weapons.
One of the provisions will restrict how legally owned firearms are stored in our homes. Frankly, I don’t think the bill’s sponsor, Californian Senator Dianne Feinstein, has any business telling West Virginian’s what to do in our homes. Her ideas about making more laws are short-sighted because criminals are not inclined to obey laws.
Consider this: criminals sell crack-cocaine, heroin, and meth every day even though the drugs are illegal. New laws will not increase the safety of our nation but they will limit the ability of good Americans to defend themselves.
The residents of West Virginia will need to act quickly to preserve our right to bear arms because Senator Dianne Feinstein and the Obama Administration are working hard to take our rights away. They want to make it hard to own guns and they want to tell you want do in your own home.
I encourage everyone to write a letter or send an email to your Senators and Congressional representatives to let them know you don’t support the Assault Weapons Ban of 2013.

I am writing in regard to the announced retirement of Sen. Rockefeller, at the end of his current term. I believe that he has done a lot for the people of this state, in a lot of ways, particularly the bill that helps retired coal miners to keep their health care insurance.
I don’t really understand why, but it seems that in the later years of his tenure as senator he has neglected to consider the will of the citizens of WV and followed the ultra liberals of Washington D.C. I am speaking specifically of the enormous national debt that threatens to sink the country.
I am also speaking of the moral decline that the country has sunken into. Such as abortion — which is nothing less than the killing of unborn babies. Also of The Senator’s backing of same sex marriages, which God’s word, the Holy Bible calls sin, and will condemn the soul that does these things to hell, and will destroy the nation that supports or condones these abominations.
I deeply love this country, and I pray that our leaders will repent and seek God and His will and begin to lead the U.S. back to God before it is too late and our country sinks into the dustbin of history, as so many great empires of the past ages have done.
