    If you live in Texas, Ted Cruz needs your help

    AFAIK this is not a hoax. I found this on the TexasCHLforum here.

    U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee, Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights, and Human Rights

    The Senate committee listed above will take up the subject of "Proposals to Reduce Gun Violence: Protecting Our Communities While Respecting the Second Amendment" next Tuesday, February 12, 2013 at 10:00 a.m. Senator Cruz is the Ranking Member of this subcommittee.

    Senator Cruz is asking for your help.

    Please be willing to submit your thoughts on a relevant topic for Sen.Cruz and the committee to consider in the form of a formal letter to the committee which makes either a pro 2nd Amendment argument or a tells a short, compelling, personal story about how you exercised your 2nd Amendment rights in a positive way, such as in defense of yourself, your family, your business, or how you scared off a robber.

    Please submit your stories and statements in MS Word, well-written and clear. Then send as an attachment to the email address of Senator Cruz's staff below.


    Jon_McJClellan@cruz.senate.gov


    Statements must be received by Monday in order to be helpful. Your statement could be submitted into the Congressional Record.

    Senator Dick Durbin is the Chairman of the subcommittee and prides himself on carrying in a large stack of statements from the other side to showcase and submit into the record.

    Texas Senator Cruz would like to be ready to respond in kind.

    Please share this email with any and all Texans who have a story to tell.

    Thanks

    Good idea. I would add the suggestion that all of us (not just Texans) find out who else is on the subcommittee and write to all of them. Even though Sen Cuz is the ranking minority member, he will only have a limited time to speak. Yes, anything he receives will be put into record, but it will have a much bigger impact if all the members of the subcommittee know we support measures that actually deal with the issue of violence in America while protecting out 2A rights. This is a bill being put forth in the US Senate, not just in Texas.

    Since this is the US Senate Judiciary Committee, is there any reason the letters ONLY need to be from people living in Texas?
