    Senator Braun's reply to my email

    Dear Mr. Fritz,


    Thank you for contacting my office regardingSecond Amendment protections to keep and bear arms. I appreciate hearing from you.
    I am an avid hunter, a National Rifle Association member, and stand 100 percent in support of the Second Amendment. In the Senate, I will oppose any efforts to restrict the rights of law-abiding gun owners and will protect their ability to defend themselves and their families in life-threatening situations. Because of this, I have co-sponsored S. 69, the Constitutional Carry Reciprocity Act, S. 1506, a bill to permit those complying with state firearm laws to carry, and S. 351, the Gun Owners Registration Information Protection Act.
    I am deeply troubled, though, by the recent shootings that took place in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio. Simply put, there is no place for the hate that motivated these attacks in our great country. Americans are collectively grieving the loss of our fellow citizens to senseless violence. My wife Maureen and I are praying for the victims and survivors of these horrific events.
    I know that the federal government’s most fundamental responsibility is to keep citizens safe. As a United States Senator, public safety is therefore a top priority. Steps must be taken to ensure that the mentally ill and those who wish to do others harm are not able to legally purchase and possess firearms to commit violent acts.
    Mass shootings and gun violence across the country create complex situations, and I believe that we need solutions to prevent those who only wish to do others harm from gaining access to dangerous weapons. First and foremost, I believe our existing laws need to be fully enforced. Second, I believe a meaningful legislative solution would include reforms to strengthen background checks, extreme risk protection orders and commonsense restrictions on modifications that allow legal firearms to function like fully automatic military style weapons. Lastly, we as Americans must take the time required to address and respond to the part of our culture that glorifies violence and instead empower communities to focus mental health services.
    Any legislation that I support or vote for will have to be constructed in a way that protects law-abiding Americans’ access to their Second Amendment rights. As I consider any currently proposed legislation, I will keep your thoughts in mind.
    Thank you for contacting me. It is an honor to serve as your U.S. Senator from Indiana. Please keep in touch with me on issues of concern to you. You can also follow me on Twitter or Facebook for real-time updates on my activities in the U.S. Senate. If I ever may be of service, please do not hesitate to contact me.
    Sincerely,

    Mike Braun
    U.S. Senator
    P.S. This message was sent by email to save taxpayer dollars.

    While not bad, glad to see his support but he totally missed the point of the second amendment. We the people were supposed to keep and bear the exact same weapons as our military carry to prevent a central government from becoming more powerful than we the people.

    This is bad.

    He just told us what the senate has planned when they get back to work.

    His reply is being talked about in a couple other threads as well. I got the same.

    He is a typical POS. F U Braun!

    " I support the 2nd Amendment 100%" .....but..... " we need to strengthen background checks, enact red flag laws, and ban modifications that make weapons act like weapons of war"

    Again i repeat, F U Braun!!!

    I got pretty much the same form letter in response to what I said to him.
    I sent him another letter saying I'd never vote for him again.

    I disagree with this part:
    ...commonsense restrictions on modifications that allow legal firearms to function like fully automatic military style weapons...
    Other than that, it's about as good as you can expect from any politician on the federal level, and I have no issue with the rest of it.
    ​Bullies suck. They also make you stronger.

    So you're good with someone saying they support the 2A 100% then a few paragraphs later saying they're for Red Flag Laws and Universal Background checks?

    So you personally support Red Flag Laws and UBCs, since you "have no issue with the rest of it"?

    Just trying to make sure I understand your statement correctly.
