I have been a member for a while but have never posted, just looked at what people were talking about and gathered information for myself.

This topic required me to send an email to [email protected]. Below is my email.
I disagree with the U.S. Solicitor General Paul D. Clement’s statement "Given the unquestionable threat to public safety that unrestricted private firearm possession would entail, various categories of firearm-related regulation are permitted by the 2nd Amendment,"

Where does it state this in the 2nd Amendment?

Clement’s has stated that the 2nd Amendment, "protects an individual right to possess firearms, including for private purposes unrelated to militia operations,"

If gun ownership is an individual right, as stated by the Solicitor General, then what does “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed” mean?

What would the framers of the U.S. Constitution have said if they did not really mean “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed”?

Is the Solicitor General now stating that because of the “public good/safety” that we can regulate firearms?

If the “public good/safety” standard is being used, then can the Federal Government use this phrase to regulate the other Amendments?

Does “the right of the people” mean something different in the 2nd Amendment than in the 1st or 4th Amendment?

It appears that the Federal Government is going down the same path as other governments have in using the phrase “public good/safety” as a means to control the population.

I request that President Bush withdraw the Solicitor General brief from consideration by the U.S. Supreme Court.
I know that this is a rehash of what others have said, but I wanted the White House to know my opinion.
