Contact Your Elected Officials ASAP -- Do Not Wait
Time For All of Us to Act
Truthfully the time was “yesterday”. Maybe to was our mistake by allowing some of the so called “reasonable” infringement laws in the past. However that is water under the bridge. We now have to stand firm and totally united in pursuit of stopping any further ban on certain type weapons. We have to stop falling into(agreeing) with the anti gun rhetoric questions that are designed to make 2nd amendment advocates as coming across as evil we do not give the answer they want. There has been many posts on this forum that have sent us to sites where the anti gun rhetoric is refuted. Via this information there is plenty of information to assist you in getting your point across.
Our biggest task now is to win back the senators and congresspersons that are advocates of the 2nd amendment that have started to spout the anti gun rhetoric that there is no “need” for certain type weapons. We also have to try to sway those elected officials that are on the border and even those that want such a ban. Also even if your elected officials are on(or not) board contact them anyway. Do not fall into “it does not pay to contact them”. We can not leave any “stone” unturned.
I suggest when contacting your elected officials do so by firstly being cordial. Use solid valid statements of fact, stay focused on topic, do not resort to attacking the anti gun organizations and no name calling. Keep in mind when you contact your elected officials in most cases you will dealing with one of their aides when you either do it via phone or in writing(email, regular mail, etc.) They then supply the information to the elected official from their perspective. Attempt to get your point across in as little space/time as possible. No one wants to read pages and pages or listen to a persons view point for hours. These people deal with many email/phone calls daily.
One thing that may help with this endeavor is if some members post some suggestions on what to say/write to elected officials. This will help those that find it difficult to articulate.
Again, the time has come since it is highly likely if the ban on certain weapons goes through it will permanent in nature. Contact them ASAP.......
