dscn7000.pngSubject: 2nd Amendment
From: Ron
Date: Sun, May 09, 2004 9:46 am

In the Oregon voter's pamphlet you say that you are "pro 2nd Amendment."  What exactly do you mean by that?

Thank you,



Dear Ron,
My apologies for the short statement on the Voter's pamphlet, they give only 325 words to cover all the necessary topics.  Quite inadequate for a good explanation of a lengthy topic.
You can find on my website a link from my home page to the specifics of my stand on the 2nd amendment. 
I am a member of the NRA.  I support their platform completely.  The purpose of a well organized militia is for defense of the homeland, and protection of the people against the threat of an encroaching tyranny of the government.  I believe every person has the right, and duty to be part of that militia.  We have neglected that responsibility as a people, and we do so at our peril.
Sincerely yours,
Thomas Lee Abshier, ND
Candidate, US Senator (R)
Dear Thomas,
Excellent!  I am a Life Member of the NRA, and a firm believer that any law abiding citizen who wishes, may own and carry firearms for self defense and any other legitimate purpose.  I am a retired police detective and too often have seen the results of unarmed citizens who fell prey to predatory criminals.  I also am a believer in a citizen militia, in the classic sense, who have a duty to protect our communities, our state and our nation from enemies, foreign and domestic. 
Thank you for your prompt response.
Yours truly,
