The situation will NEVER BE THE WAY YOU WANT, it WILL BE THE WAY IT IS. You must be FLEXIBLE ENOUGH TO ADAPT and just "DEAL WITH IT".
Here is a good example of a letter that brandishes the very large club that we hold. It gets straight to the point and let's them know under no uncertain terms, that if they are on the wrong side of this we will come after their families financial security.
Make them vote the right way before the vote even comes up.
Dear Sir or Madam,
Do you recognize any of these names?
Karan English, Dan Hamburg, Richard H. Lehman, Lynn Schenk, George "Buddy" Darden, Clete Donald Johnson, Jr., Larry LaRocco, Dan Rostenkowski, Jill Long, Frank McCloskey, Neal Edward Smith, Dan Glickman, Thomas Barlow, Peter Hoagland, James Bilbray, Dick Swett, Herb Klein, George J. Hochbrueckner, Martin Lancaster, David Price, David S. Mann, Ted Strickland, Eric Fingerhut, Marjorie Margolies-Mezvinsky, Jack Brooks, Bill Sarpalius, Karen Shepherd, Leslie L. Byrne, Maria Cantwell, Jolene Unsoeld, Jay Inslee, Speaker Tom Foley, Mike Kreidler, Peter W. Barca
Those are just some of the names of members of Congress who lost their jobs-- and most of them their entire political careers-- because they made a huge mistake in 1994: they voted to take away so-called "assault" weapons and "high capacity" ammunition magazines from their lawful constituents.
Do not make their mistake, or this will PERSONALLY affect your career. More people are watching than ever before to see that any responsible person, by their action OR INACTION, loses their political career, regardless of their party affiliation.
Make the right choice, for your constituents, your country, the Constitution, and your family and career.
And there is no fear on my part,just anger.And I've been emailing,making calls,and sending letters putting Colorado legislatures on the state ,local,and federal level that they WILL be unemployed should they trample our 2nd Amendment Rights!This includes old Hickenlooper himself who has completely flip-flopped on the matter.
Already the legislatures in Denver are preparing laws as I speak.
Best believe I'm doing all I can
Is threatening these elected officials really the best offense or could it possible backfire. Also, as someone mentioned already what good comes out of them being voted out after the fact(if a new ban is enacted). Many, if not all, federal politicians that get voted out land on their feet. If at all, they will not be unemployed for very long.
"One of the greatest delusions in the world is the hope that the evils in this world are to be cured by legislation."

Second Amendment -- Established December 15, 1791 and slowly eroded ever since What happened to "..... shall not be infringed."
How do we do that? From what I've seen if they aren't already involved one way or another, they either have their minds made up, or have decided that it doesn't concern them and won't listen to how even if they don't own guns it does concern them and their future rights....I don't know what else to say to people like that.
“A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government.” --George Washington
"The carrot and the stick" concept has been around for a very long time for a reason.......because it works. Of course you could act as if you are their servant and ask really nicely while saying "please." That is really not my cup of tea......I am more of a tea party kind of guy.......mess with me and mine and I will mess with you and yours.
Regardless, they fear the unknown, and getting terminated by voters is a big unknown.Many, if not all, federal politicians that get voted out land on their feet. If at all, they will not be unemployed for very long.

"But if they don't exist, how can a man see them?"
"You may think I'm pompous, but actually I'm pedantic... let me explain the difference."
"Carry the battle to them. Don't let them bring it to you. Put them on the defensive and don't ever apologize for anything."
The only thing I am willing to give the other side is background checks.If we believe most if not all shooters needed help thats all I'll bend as
the guy In Newton tried to buy firearms and he was denied 5 times! If the other side gets more than what I willing you can bet your ass they'll
pay on the nexr election. I make sure I not going to accept this President recommendations via 23 excutive orders.This meaning gun control was
going to be made an issue anyway. The President from Chicago (murder capital) Ill the most repressive gun laws in the country.
We are into February and Joe Biden gun law was su[ppose to be on the books.This battle I can see the tide turning
in our favor.I betting the only thing we give them is background checks .Magazine capacity only means you carry more.
I bet I spent an hour a day on my computer educating the other side.I spent most of the time rebutting falsehoods.
We managed to get the newspaper editors to back off any major changes except background checks which we all do.
The last two rifles I bought at a gun show I did form7743.
