I am an individual who believes that the government begins at the local level then builds from there and the local level should be as close to the people as possible. I make this statement because as a fairly new resident to Washington Parish due to hurricane Katrina, I have found that the politicians seem to not return calls or emails or any other form of communication to me. I say this because on several key vote in the Louisiana House and Senate, I have asked for the individuals to vote against certain measures, ones like, “Gun Control” of which I am dead set against any sort of government control over legally bought and legally used guns and ammo. I find it really disturbing that the Senator from my area, Senator Ben Nevers voted for “Gun Control”. Senator Ben Nevers did this even though most of his district is open to hunting of all sorts!

I have to question people when they make choices that go against the Constitution of the United States and the very State they are from. I tried on several occasions to contact Senator Ben Nevers to inform him to vote against any sort of “Gun Control” measures since it goes against the grain of the State Constitution and the United States Constitution, but today it seems like any Constitution is secondary to all politicians as they continue to go against the very Constitutions they swore under Oath to uphold. The very idea of “Gun Control” in the district of Ben Nevers is liken to placing fish in an oil tank, it just does not make any sense at all. “Gun Control” is government Control because the Government fears those whom have Guns but they do not care about those who do not. It would be in the basic idea of a “Controlling” Government to take the ownership of Guns away a little at a time that way they would be able to Control without fear of the Gun.
Senator Ben Nevers also voted against Prayer in schools, yet every meeting in Baton Rouge is begun with a Prayer, what is the idea here? This shows that Senator Nevers wishes to “Control” the lives of people and allow the Government to make decisions for them. If a person does not wish to say a prayer in school, they may walk out until it is over or just close their eyes. Our nation was based upon the freedom of Faith. Many will come back and say that prayer in school treads on the separation of church and state, this would be wrong, very wrong. The founders of this nation understood the ideas of Faith and knew full well that the Government should not be involved like England and demand that the people follow the Faith the Government wants you to follow. Thomas Jefferson knew this and wrote the First Amendment to make sure it spelled out the right for people to follow the Faith they wished and that the Government would NOT interfere with that. Yet Senator Ben Neverrs and other “Liberals’ found it to be their duty as Senators and Representatives to silence school prayer because some individual may be insulted by this. It is NOT the Governments responsibility to determine what can or cannot be done in the local school or what they can pass to enforce their, the Governments ideas upon a people that in this case are from highly concerned and Faithful religions.
In the coming election, “WE THE PEOPKLE” have a big choice in this debate, we can Keep a Senator who votes for “Gun Control” in a region that has a very large hunting population along with a highly religious population or we can kick him out by voting for the other Candidate that holds the peoples views highly. I should also mention that this also needs to be done STATE wide!
