Hoping the voters in my district smarten up and don't vote for her again. 

 

November 21, 2019 

 

Hi Neighbors, 

 

There have been more mass shootings than days in 2019, one of which deeply impacted our community in the 14th District. In February, five innocent lives were taken in a senseless workplace shooting in Aurora, just one day after the 11th anniversary of the shooting at Northern Illinois University.

As a nurse, I know that gun violence itself is a public health epidemic that can have long-lasting impacts. I’ve met with families, students, and teachers across our community who have shared how gun violence has impacted their lives.

There was a young elementary school student who wasn’t excited about this school year; instead, he was scared that he wouldn’t be able to reach his older brother if there was an active shooter on his school campus. I’ve heard from teachers who describe how their ability to teach is impacted by the responsibility of balancing the emotional well-being of their students and ensuring they are prepared in the event of a shooting.

This cannot continue to be the norm in this country.

That’s why one of my first votes in Congress was to pass H.R. 8, the Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2019. The passage of this bill marked the first time in more than two decades that Congress passed a major gun safety bill. H.R. 8 would require a background check on every gun sale or transfer, with limited exceptions. In addition to keeping our communities safer, universal background checks would help keep our first responders out of harm’s way.

I've also supported H.R. 1112, the Enhanced Background Checks Act of 2019. The bill would extend the federal wait period from three to ten days to allow the National Instant Criminal Background Check System to complete background checks— addressing the loophole that contributed to the shooting at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina in 2015.

The bills have something in common— bipartisan support to address our nation's gun violence epidemic. Recent studies show that more than 90% of Americans support universal background checks on firearm sales. 

Following the passage of H.R. 8 and H.R. 1112, the House should consider additional legislation to prevent gun violence, including H.R. 1296, the Assault Weapons Ban of 2019. After listening to students, parents, teachers, gun owners, and law enforcement in our community, I recently decided to cosponsor the Assault Weapons Ban. Weapons of war do not belong in our neighborhoods, and we have seen too many of these weapons used in mass shootings across the country. 

These common sense policies would save countless lives, and I’ll continue to work in Congress until families no longer have to mourn lost loved ones due to preventable gun violence.

 

Sincerely,

The trouble is , is that the voters in (this) our district have gone from 99% Conservative to a bunch of yuppie, socialist liberals. I really, really hope this idiot rings my doorbell looking for my vote.

That EMPTY head ACTUALLY earned a nursing degree?  I'm surprised she got out of High School.

Thus the "Anti-" aspect.

What I found very interesting was when a man wearing an Illinois DNR shirt showed up at the door wanting my daughter and I (but not my wife) to sign nominating petition for Underwood a few weeks ago.

The incumbent, Randy Hultgren, phoned in the election.  He was a lousy rep that got tons of hate for not reaching out to the people he represented.  I still voted for him though.

IL State Senator Randy voted to ban normal capacity magazines.

When I confronted him about it, he said that he only voted to ban the high-cap magazines.

​When I told him that he had voted to ban MY magazines his eyes got big then he wilted.
