    Here is the text in the message template...

    I am writing you today to strongly urge you to vote to override Gov. Taft's veto of H.B. 347. As you probably already know, the House voted to override the veto by a margin of 71-21. The Senate needs to join in this action and rebuff our obstructionist Governor.

    Gun owners have already been let down by Gov. Taft on H.B. 12, as was everyone in the Senate. Gun owners were all forced to bend to his will "for the good of the cause" and have an absurd law as a result. H.B. 347 begins to undo some of that damage, and it Taft's turn to be rebuffed.

    Gun owners have asked every step of the way "why should we compromise on these items to avoid a veto, Taft is going to veto it no matter what?" Yet gun owners recognized it was their friends in the General Assembly who were asking for the compromises, so they willingly made compromise after compromise for the legislators in an attempt to avoid the veto. Trust is a two way street, gun owners have worked with the General Assembly as much as possible, it is now time for the Senate to do their part.

    Taft's objections are an insult to the Senate and everyone who has worked through this process. Where has be been? Preemption has been in this Act since Day 1, and in the current form for almost a year. Now he wants to come up with objections after the Bill passes, just as he did with H.B. 12? Fool us once, shame on us. Fool us twice, shame on the Senate.

    I consider your vote on the Senate override of the veto as a matter of the highest confidence, as do all gun-owning voters in your district. Every pro-gun group in the nation is watching us, and I look forward to your support.
