I got the same response that they were extremely "busy" AND the fact that I was from Idaho put me in the "no response from the senator" category. Oh well, I made the attempt and I will keep doing so until this legislation is stopped.

Link to petitions please

Please include links to petitions, letters, ect.

In my humble opinion, we citizen sportsmen who respect the rule of law and a peaceful society, need to get at least as large and loud as the anti's have been. Every elected official from local dog catcher to the guy who won the election last month needs to hear us so they can figure it out for themselves that any legislation that in any way 'infringes' on a citizens rights IS playing with political 'fire.'

It is easy!

Here was my note. Feel free to copy all or part of it, if you like.

"To whom it may concern: I am strongly against any form of gun control and this includes the proposed "Assault Weapons" ban of 2013. We have enough gun laws, more will not help. The cost of this worthless venture to attack law abiding citizens, and strip them of their 2nd amendment rights, is nonsense. This proposed law has nothing to do with public safety. Lets spend the money to get help to these mentally ill people that are committing these heinous crimes. Or place armed guards at all our schools. It is a FACT!! That more gun laws equal more crimes. Lets do the right thing."



Guys, this is no time to be lazy. It only takes a few minutes. I can't understand why we all would not send a note. It is no more work that making another post about the sport we love. Do it!!

Jeff

Yes Jeff. Thanks.

I'm in the process of wearin' out my welcome there. Unfortunately, 'my' representatives do not represent me. In the past year I've sent over one hundred emails and written letters to these folks and have received only 3 mechanical 'thank you for your interest' letters. But I'm still tryin' to get through.

Sent mine out via email to my US Rep for district, both state Senators, and Governor of my state.
