    I got a nice letter from Ron Johnson he just really said he agreed with me. I got nothing from my State rep Don Priedmore. NOTHING!!!!!
    and I get update emails from Jim Sensenbrenner.
    Sensenbrenner is chairman of the sub-committee on crime (part of the larger House Judiciary Committee). Any gun control bills will likely have to pass through that subcommittee and then committee. Please get as many of your local pro-gun friends to write him as possible! Last night I started a thread (link here) trying to get everyone to write him.

    I'm sure a lot of pro-gun congressmen will feel like they are sticking their neck out if they take a stand in defense of our 2A rights. Thanks for showing Sensenbrenner our support. I know it means more coming from some one in his district that it does from me.

    Don't forget that the last AWB just barely passed. I doubt this one will have overwhelming support beyond the usual characters.

    I sure did. Received the automated response they received it and will respond. Bet it will take awhile to get one of the two pre-written response letters for both sides
    I think, therefore I am...

    I called mine last week. I am going to also send them a letter and email and keep calling.

    I am also going to buy my wife a NRA membership and donate some money.

    Just sent the following letters to my elected officials (so change my vote from "not yet but plan to" to "yes"):

    Dear elected official,

    Will you support or vote in favor of any legislation which will infringe upon the 2nd amendment? Please reply with one of the following: "yes, I might support or vote in favor of legislation which will infringe upon the 2nd amendment" or "no, I will never support or vote in favor of legislation which will infringe upon the 2nd amendment". If I do not receive the latter of the two responses from you, I will assume your response is the former of the two responses.

    If you support or vote in favor of legislation which will infringe upon the 2nd amendment, I will lobby against you in all future elections.

    Sincerely,
    Regards,

    You should've added another option: "yes, but it won't do any good"

    I wrote both my Senators and my Congressman. I also wrote my state Delegates and Senator. Things are going to get rough here in MD, and for any of you out there writing your reps, I hope you are not skipping your state-level representation. If your state pulls some amazingly stupid stunts with its gun laws then Feinstein's bill being shot down is going to be cold comfort.

    Don't forget, you can also write directly to the Speaker of the House and the party Majority/minority Leaders in addition to your Representatives. Same for the Senate.

    Keep your voices heard!

    Yesterday I received a letter from Sen. Graham. "I believe that every law-abiding citizen has the right to possess firearms. Please be assured I will continue to fight to uphold the integrity of the Second Amendment." Too bad we don't have more in Congress with this determination.

    There should also be a choice of: Yes, but that won't help.

    I have written to all, but our ruling class is above the masses and don't care what we want. I have given up hope.
