Ron Johnson United States Senator from Wisconsin Responds

Thanks for all of the help in keeping this rolling. Keep sending your responses to We will keep putting them up periodically as they come in. The latest response is from Senator Ron Johnson from Wisconsin. 


Thank you for taking the time to contact me regarding your thoughts on federal  gun control measures in light of the recent tragedy in Connecticut.

A terrible and incomprehensible act of violence took place at Sandy Hook Elementary School. We are all deeply impacted by the horror of little children and brave adults being murdered. There are many serious issues that will need to be discussed and considered in the weeks and months to come. But right now, our primary concern should be for the families and the community of Newtown.

At moments like this, America comes together to mourn and support one another. We will do so again in the coming days, and then search for answers on how to prevent such tragedies in the future.

As your Senator, I believe it is my primary responsibility to uphold the Constitution and the Second Amendment is no exception.  I will continue to strongly support our Second Amendment rights.  One of the bills I have chosen to cosponsor regarding the Second Amendment is S. 570 introduced by Senator Jon Tester (D-MT) on March 14, 2011.  This bill would prohibit the Department of Justice from tracking and cataloguing the purchases of multiple rifles and shotguns.

Thank you again for taking the time to share your thoughts.  It is important for me to hear the views and concerns of the people I serve.

Please feel free to contact me in the future if I can further assist you or your family.  It is an honor representing you and the good people of Wisconsin in the U.S. Senate.

Ron Johnson
United States Senator
