Blaine’s Bulletin by U.S. Representative Blaine Luetkemeyer

I believe in the Second Amendment and it is my duty to uphold the Constitution of the United States as an elected representative of the people. With that in mind, I am extremely troubled by the president’s efforts to restrict the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding folks like you. This egregious attempt to punish those who play by the rules is not acceptable.

It is my belief that any attempt by the Obama Administration to pass gun control through Executive Action is a slippery slope and highlights a dangerous disregard for the rights and freedoms guaranteed to every American in the Bill of Rights. Instead of trying to restrict Second Amendment rights, the Obama Administration should focus on promoting the American values that encourage strong families and a respect for the sanctity of human life, while working to ensure that those with mental illnesses are able to receive the care they need.
