AN OPEN LETTER TO ILLINOIS’ SECOND AMENDMENT COMMUNITY
Dear Second Amendment supporter:
There is a sheep running in wolf’s clothing in the February 5th Republican Party primary for U. S. Senator. My opponent, Steve Sauerberg, has bought the liberal Democratic line about “assault weapons” and related malarkey. My source? Sauerberg himself: http://www.dailyherald.com/story/?id=11341
I note that Sauerberg has been invited to appear before the Will County NRA chapter January 16th. I did not receive the invitation or a NRA questionnaire. You should find out why.
I just wanted you to know the facts: I have owned all sorts of firearms: pistols, rifles, shotguns, and yes, “assault weapons.” In point of fact, there is no such thing as an assault weapon. There are criminals who use firearms to assault law-abiding citizens. Period. People assault, weapons do not. I have also had a Florida concealed carry permit, and I favor nationwide concealed carry legislation. I doubt if Sauerberg has ever owned any firearm.
I hope you will spread this letter near and far, because Mr. Sauerberg is trying to bamboozle the Second Amendment Community into supporting him. It will be a sad day for the Second Amendment if he succeeds.
Call me personally if you have any questions.
With best wishes,
