    Exclamation Update March 9: Colorado Call for Help!

    We have one last shot to stop these Bills in the Senate, and I am begging all of you to please take a few minutes and send the Legislators letters:

    Dear Richard

    Give yourself a pat on the back. After over twelve hours of debate yesterday, the senate killed House Bill 1226, which would have banned concealed carry on college campuses, and Senate Bill 196, which would have held firearms manufacturers liable for damages caused by people using their products. We couldn't have defeated these bills without the actions of thousands of Second Amendment supporters who called and e-mailed their representatives, attended townhall meetings, and came to the capitol in droves to testify on the bills and oppose the gun grabbers.

    The fight's not over yet, though. House Bills 1224, 1228, and 1229 and Senate Bills 195 and 197 passed and will be heard by the Senate once again on Monday. We still have a chance to stop these bills. Yesterday, we packed the senate gallery with Second Amendment supporters, forcing senators to face the people of Colorado before voting. I hope you can make it to the capitol Monday to watch the final vote.

    Monday is our last best chance to stop the gun control bills. Call or e-mail your legislators immediately and tell them to vote "no." You can find your local legislators here: Project Vote Smart - The Voter's Self Defense System. Your legislators’ contact information can be found at Colorado General Assembly for the House and Colorado General Assembly for the Senate. Please be polite and voice your opinions succinctly. Also, be sure to remind your legislators that their vote on these bills could determine whether they are reelected in 2014.

    HB 1224, which would ban "high capacity" magazines, passed second readings by only one vote; if we can convince one more Democrat to vote against the bill, it will die. Below is a list of Democrat legislators the Denver Post has said might be persuaded to vote “no”:

    Please get ahold of these senators and tell them you do not support these bills and will not support any politician who votes for them.

    Your activism made it possible for I and my Republican colleagues to shoot down HB 1226 and SB 196. We can't stop now. Your senators were elected to represent the people of Colorado. Let's hold them to their oaths.

    Sincerely,
    Senator Greg Brophy

    If you can draft a short letter AGAINST the Bills, passionate yet polite, we have one final shot!



    IFF you're out of state, promise to spend your dollars elsewhere!

    I know ya'll are tired of this (I am exhausted personally) but please give me one last effort.

    !! Thank you !!

    I'm pretty sure I have at least one last email and phone campaign left in me for CO. I will become better known in CO than most of the residents!

    I contacted these Senators (again), and a few more too (like my local one) (again).

    Everyone else please do the same, especially if you are from Colorado.

    This time, I also wrote to all of the republican senators that are voting with us, and thanked them and encouraged them to keep up the good work.
