Congresswoman Nancy Boyda

I wrote my congresswoman urging her to sign onto the amicus brief in the DC gun case before the SCOTUS. Here is her response - kudos to Congresswoman Boyda.

February 21, 2008

Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with me about the amicus brief in D.C. v. Heller, a document supported by the National Rifle Association and 31 state attorneys general from across our nation.

I am pleased to tell you that I signed the amicus brief along with 250 of my colleagues from the House and 55 from the Senate. Simply stated, the brief lays out the long history of Congress' interpretation of the Second Amendment as a guarantee of an individual right to own guns.

As your representative in Washington, D.C., I am working to protect the right of Kansans to own guns for shooting, hunting and self-protection. I am also working to promote programs that set aside lands for hunting and fishing, as well as programs that encourage young people to learn to hunt. I have heard countless stories from constituents about how much they value the right to hunt and are committed to passing this tradition to their children.

Hunting is an important part of Kansas' heritage, and I am committed to preserving that heritage. I will keep your concerns in mind as further issues arise, and please do not hesitate to contact me again to share your views.

Sincerely,

Nancy Boyda
Member of Congress

I surprised that she signed on, but hey that is great that she did and that she responded with a nice email.

I am not a one issue guy, but the 2nd amendment is high on my list of issues so it means a lot that she signed on to the brief.

Good response, I suspect she has heard from more than a few constituents. smile

I'm a little surprised she took that stance also. That is great.
