Burris -- this is appalling!

Then ... click "Subject" to open the scrolling menu.
Then ... notice that one category is Drugs/Crime/Guns.
What a f***ing asshole (pardon my French).
Think about the significance of lumping those three issues together like that. Think of how that reflects his views of our fundamental and inalienable right to own and carry guns for all lawful purposes.
Profoundly offensive, and he's profoundly misinformed (twisted).

With all due respect guns don't belong under this heading. Guns are perfectly legal to own and use so if you want to start a subject that carries guns why don't you add Second Amendment rights and guns together. That way the members of this state know that beyond you being a liar you're atleast trying to do something to help maintain their rights.

I have often thought about doing this at Durbins web site, selecting a totally unrelated category and then writing the letter about guns. I bet the letter he sends in response will be based on the category selection rather than the actual content of the letter. The responses I have received in the past seem very canned answers.
Whenever I write Eddie Haskell a letter I always choose "Other" as a subject so they have to at least read the first sentence.
My reply to Sen. Burris under the topic of civil rights:
I find it highly offensive that you lump drugs/crime in with guns.
Firearms are a constitutionally protected civil right. Drugs and crime are not.
If you do not know the difference you need to resign.

A gun is like a parachute. If you need one, and don't have one, you'll probably never need one again.

It is time you realize that you were chosen (ok- even if it was by Blagojevich) to represent ALL Illinoisans- not just your liberal Chicago democrat collegues. (Come to think of it, not a lot of them standing by you now is there?)
The hardworking, honest and law-abiding, rural residents of Illinois are sick and tired of being blamed for urban gun violence and our second amendment rights are just as important as the rest of the Bill of Rights.

What in the world is wrong with you?
Lumping a Constitutionally protected civil right together in a category with "crime and drugs".
A little 'biased aren't you?
I find this more than offensive. Please reply so I'll know you read my comments and I'll send you a "pocket Constitution". It's apparant that document is foreign to not only your thought process but your library as well.

But the special election measure failed 3-2 in a Democratic-controlled subcommittee.
Sen. Ira Silverstein (D-Chicago) acknowledged that Burris' inconsistent statements have led to investigations by a Downstate prosecutor and the U.S. Senate Ethics Committee, but said, "The man has really done nothing wrong at this point."
Silverstein, who joined Hendon and Sen. Tony Munoz (D-Chicago) in opposing the bill, said the election's $62 million cost is "unconscionable."
