Stumbling through blogland, I came across THIS I copied and clicked and pasted and added a personal touch, though the letter is beautifully written and as far as I'm concerned, needs no editing at all. For the record, I don't think I've EVER contacted a congressperson. Not even to ask that raw milk or marijuana be legalized. Also for the record, I don't think ALL guns should be illegal. I wish I had someone to shoot me a deer every fall and fill my freezer with venison for the winter. But automatic weapons designed specifically to kill a lot of people in just a few seconds? That shit is totally unnecessary. And yes, guns don't kill people well they kinda do, people kill people. But still... Please, if you are so moved, write to your congresspeople. And pass the letter on. Please. Thank you.
