Dear Senator (Rand Paul, Mitch McConnell) and Rep. Brent Guthrie
This is not a letter of request but an ultimatum as a citizen in your District. Please vote to restrict the sale of assault rifles to youth age 21 and younger, and for regulations that tighten the screening necessary to buy an “assault” rifle.
Yes, there are mental health issues, yes, we can make schools safer, but that is not at the basis of the current safety issue: kids with guns killing other kids. Change the gun ownership regulations, Sir.
I want to hear from you on how you will act to restrict gun ownership by minors (21 and younger) and your plans to write or support such legislation. This has the highest priority in my own mind. We just lost 2 youths in Kentucky, with another 16 wounded, and thousands of students, parents, families and the public traumatized by mass shootings in their community. Now, its happened again.
Tomorrow I’ll be making an appointment to meet with you in your Bowling Green office at your earliest convenience.
Very truly yours,
