Dear Congressman Rush,

h.r.5618 needs to be passed immediately. There are 15 million Americans who are “unemployed through no fault of their own,” and who are also frantically attempting to find new jobs that do not exist. The majority of these 15 million have a family dependent upon their income, so that increases the number to possibly 30 or even 45 million Americans who are in imminent danger of losing everything. When this happens, the financial and moral consequences for this country will be dire indeed. I’ll say it again—h.r.5618 needs to be passed immediately! Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.

Bobby Rush and 73 other Democrats sold you out to AT&T, Verizon and Comcast

Bobby got paid $128,000 in campaign funds for his support of internet throttling. So when your service turns bad when downloading anything the ISP does not support (competition), thank Bobby.

So true. Keep up the word. Bless you.

voxsilvae 02/24/2010 11:28am

I totally agree. Leave your post, Sir. This is not Russia. We are Americans and we believe in OUR FREEDOM. So many fought and died for that right. RESIGN your Seat.
Do something for a change. Implement Death Penalty for those who commit murder, rape, etc. Put teeth in the laws we have now. Guns don’t kill; People DO. Put your time and effort to control crime by enforcing the laws we already have. More and more States need to implement DEATH. Wipe out all those criminals on death row. We could save millions of dollars instead of feeding and bordering those criminals. Its been proven that you can’t rehabilitate them. Put them to death NOW!
When you do that, you put fear in those who may just be thinking of doing a crime. Put the word out that we are sick and tired of these criminals and you do a crime of killing, you will DIE immediately. No 10-20 years on Death row. Send them to their maker.

Guess what? It’s not the law abiding people that use the guns irresponibly-it’s the gang bangers, thieves, burglars, transients and other various unsavory people. I know…I’m in LAW ENFORCEMENT. When are some of you going to wake up? Do you really think cops are going to always be there when you call them? Wouldn’t you like to protect your family as well as yourself, just in case Mr. Officer doesn’t get there in time? It’ not about guns, it’s about RIGHTS! Even George Orwell got that!

The fact that the details of this Bill are so outrageous it suggests an ulterior motive. This Bill will NEVER PASS, but it may pave the way for future nonsense. By its introduction it is wasting the time and money of our elected official who should be concentrating their efforts on getting guns out of the hands of the criminal element. We know that’s not easy, but that’s way you make the big bucks and get our votes.

To quote Ted Nugent, “There are hundreds of millions of gun owners in this country, and not one of them will have an accident today. The only misuse of guns comes in environments where there are drugs, alcohol, bad parents, and undisciplined children. Period.”

Bobby Rush’s political career is OVER in 2010, if not before (RECALL is a possibility, Bobby!) Why, on God’s green earth, would you conceive of a bill to try and take the guns out of the hands of law abiding citizens? Oh, I know, you aren’t taking them away, you are just controlling them, and restricting their ownership. Our constitutional rights are well founded in stone. They will not be trampled on. The citizens of this country will take up arms against it’s government IF it tries to take guns away. We have learned the lessons of the past. Look towards what happened in all countries where gun control was enforced. That WILL NOT happen here. WILL NOT! So, prepare for a new career in 2010, because it will NOT be in politics. Withdraw your anti-gun bill, and maybe you might slip through for another term. But with this bill on the radar, you are doomed. HEAR THE VOICE OF THE PEOPLE! IT IS A MIGHTY VOICE! HEED THE VOICE OF THE PEOPLE! IT IS A MIGHTY VOICE!

This guy is an idiot and should be immediatley removed from office. Why are there people like him there? I thought these people were supposed to work for us, the honest good American. Take my guns… I think not. I have rights and you may not infringe on them.

This bill is a down right waste of energy for anyone to author. Leave it up to this BOOB, who calls himself a representative, to try and sneak something through such as this garbage. Lets unarm the law abiding citizens of America, making them powerless to the criminals who steal, rape, murder, amongst other things in order to make money to buy drugs with. You know the productive people of society that I am speaking about. Typical namby pamby democrap BS!!Worthless pieces of dog crap. Hey BOOB,can I get a copy of this bill,I am low on toilet paper? You want my guns BOOBY Rush, come on over and try and take them from me!! Im waiting!

Seasoldier 09/05/2009 7:20am

Nice move sweetpea, trying to sneak this gun bill under the radar, the American people are not stupid and you will pay for your arrogance and elitist ways come election day.

jboeseman 08/13/2009 11:57am

H.R 45) well this is the first step to communism, looks real close to what happened in Nazi Germany and Russia. I believe the democratic party is trying to turn our awesome country into a socialistic country ie socialized medicine, taking away fire arms from law abiding citizens, next we wont be able to pray in public, Oh wait! we cant do that now anyway. Get ready for the door knocks and concentration camps.

96impala 08/11/2009 7:20pm

H.R.45 – Blair Holt’s Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act of 2009 is a travesty and a slap in the face of the constitution. You do not deserve to be a congressman.

intruder09 07/25/2009 6:53am

If you try to take my guns, I will become the criminal of all time!

i will make this short, if you care anything about your constituents you will not vote for this health care package. Medicare people dont get much as it is and the government wants to take more away. People cannt live on what they get. If medicare is in such bad shape wouldn’t it make sense to straighten that our before trying to reinvent the wheel with health care? Rather than completely redoing the health care it would make more sense to develope a plan to cover ONLY those that DO NOT have coverage rather that destroying the entire system. So please note no!!

HR 45 is the most ignorant and selfish piece of legislation ever proposed by this country. The congressman sponsering this bill should step down or be impeached. Go back under the rock from which you came.Where did he go to school ,Mecca? The bill number is higher than his I.Q. Is he even American?(and convicted of the very crime that responsible gun owners would never let happen to them)What a hypocritic fool!

phans4u 06/14/2009 7:29pm

Send this sonuvabitch packing, and DON’T stop letting him know that you think he’s an Assclown, with his Anti-Second Amendment; Pro-Illegal; Race Bait Scamming. Guys like this need ridden out of DC on a rail, UNLESS they want to stay around, and wait for the Treason trials to start—because, THEN, there are going to be trees and ropes, and angry citizens…and guys like Bobby Rush are going to be unseated from their cushy FedGov entrenchments, the HARD way.

thorvaldr 06/08/2009 6:29am

Someone with no respect for the constitution or the rights of free people has no right to be our representative. Impeach the man now.

Bobby, destroying our right one bill at a time! So darn proud of you Bobby, I knew I should have voted for McCain.

I have only one question… Why is Bobby Rush in office? Is there no-one to run against him?

kent 04/28/2009 1:42pm

If you take my gun, only the criminal will have one to use against me. HR 45 only makes me/us less safe. After working with convicts for 26 years I know this bill, if passed, would make them happy and in less danger from their victims.I WILL DO EVERYTHING IN MY POWER TO SEE THAT YOU DO NOT GET RE-ELECTED!!!! CHECK OUT THE COUNTRIES THAT HAVE GUN CONTROLL.SOME COME TO MIND…MEXICO (CRIME UP) ,AUSTRALIA (CRIME UP GERMANY UNDER HITLER (CRIME WAY WAY UP) TO NAME A FEW. GUN CONTROLL JUST DON’T WORK, NEVER HAS,NEVER WILL. WAKE UP!!! i HOPE YOU NEVER HAVE TO HUNT FOR YOUR FOOD,YOU WILL BE THE SKINNY BLACK MAN WITH THE STICK TRYING TO KILL A RAT FOR DINNER.

kent 04/28/2009 1:42pm

This is just a “termite” approach to complete confiscation of guns and disarming of our society to the point we have no defense – chip away a little here and there until the goal is accomplished before anyone realizes it. (Did Obama promise transparency? It seems his motives are more and more transparent while his methods are hidden in back rooms.)

jleather1 04/28/2009 9:00am

Mr. Rush there is a constitutioal method of amending the Constitution of the United States of America and that metod does not include a mere House Resolution. The method is an amendment to the Constitution and ratification by the States. By the way, are you from Chicago? And have you even learned how to read? I do hope that someone on your staff will read this to you, if YOU CAN GET YOUR HAND OUT OF THE COOKIE JAR LONG ENOUGH TO BE ATTENTIVE! I would also advise you to start looking for other employment as the good people of Illinois will not tolerate tyranny!

In the 2000 Democratic primary for the U.S. House of Representatives (IL-01), Rush defeated a challenge from then-state senator Barack Obama. During the primary, Rush said: “Barack Obama went to Harvard and became an educated fool. Barack is a person who read about the civil-rights protests and thinks he knows all about it.”

This was copied from the Wikipedia entry on Mr Bobby Rush and pasted here. What a loyal Democrat! I hope in the end he will be honest enough to “…protect and defend the [whole] Constitution of the United States of America.” like he swore that he would.
Oh, we will defend our homes and families from the thugs and gangs his bill will empower. It might be only with a Sling shot or a spear. but we WILL defend our homes.

thorvaldr 04/23/2009 10:03am

So you’re using the tragic death of an innocent child, by a person who could not legally possess a gun in a place where no one could legally possess a gun as an excuse to take away the rights of law abiding Americans? Please leave office now and take your radical civilian disarmament agenda with you.
