(Feel free sharing this, or writing your own letter to your Senators and Representatives, I’m just one person and as of right now can only scratch the surface of how many I’m able to contact at once. As of right now this will be sent to Senators Ted Cruz, Rand Paul and Marco Rubio- also to other Florida Senator Bill Nelson and my district’s representative.)
Dear member of the United States Congress:
I am writing this (while still on New Years Vacation mind you) on behalf of the many Americans who still strive to uphold the freedoms millions of our bravest men and women have died for. I am writing to inform you that many of us do still care about freedom over a false sense of security and wish that you uphold your oath to defend the United States Constitution. That does not just mean defense from an outside looking in perspective. To defend our Constitution you must not only protect it from foreign tyrants but from traitors sly enough to find their way into our government and break their oath of office for whatever reasoning. The ones willing to overstep their authority, they are the ones who pose the greatest threat to the Constitution and to the American people. As you should be aware of, the current president has recently claimed he will be passing further gun regulations through executive order. Whether you are for or against gun-control does not matter, whether you think we need a deeper or less invasive background check does not matter. What matters is that you do your job, to uphold the Constitution of the United States of America. You were put in this position to defend our liberty and right now that’s all I ask of you. President Obama would be directly violating not only the 2nd but the 10th Amendment by passing federal gun regulations without even the consent of Congress. You should very well be aware that nowhere in or Constitution does it give the federal government authority to pass stricter regulations on the sales of firearms, especially without any checks or balances needed. Executive order is not the law of the land, the ‘founder of the Constitution’ believed if that became so it would be the people’s duty to rebel. Will you stand by the document you swore to uphold and fight the current president’s complete disregard for what makes this country great. Even if you end up thinking the regulations President Obama will announce next week sound good, we’re a republic with three branches not an elective monarchy. You must understand that over time we will all be persecuted if the president is allowed the authority to dictate his will over the people. We need to restore Constitutional law, then you can fight over the politics all you want. Do the honorable thing, stand against this unconstitutional dictation and fight for the millions who not only voted for you, but died for the liberties all of us once enjoyed. Sound the sirens for impeachment if you have to, but we have laws and you can not allow the president to overstep them.
