    Are those 41 out of the 435 State representatives solely?
    I don't see any Senator's names that I recognize.

    Ok people, anyone in the states mentioned?
    Seems to be CA and North East primarily with a bit of CO and TX.

    Write to your Rep.

    This is House of Representatives legislation. It must be passed by the House before it is transmitted to the Senate.

    The Senate has nothing to do with HR 1022 at this point.

    I have 4 from my state...sorry guys...we try
    I wrote my Rep and she basically gave me the finger and spouted lies...then closed with "I respect your opinion"...but then she's a co-sponsor who accepts money from the Brady Bunch every campaign
    Here's the letter:


    Dear Mr. XYZ,

    Thank you for contacting me to voice your opposition to H.R. 1022, the Assault Weapons Ban and Law Enforcement Protection Act. I appreciate having the opportunity to respond to your concerns on this very important issue.

    I believe our citizens must be protected from the criminal use of weapons. I also recognize that the legitimate possession of firearms by law-abiding citizens should not be hampered by federal legislation. When addressing various gun control measures, I do my best to balance these two concerns.

    As you may know, the Assault Weapons Ban and Law Enforcement Protection Act would reauthorize the assault weapons ban passed by Congress in 1994. There is no will in Congress to make further changes to firearms laws. The Congressional Research Service, the research arm of Congress, reported that,"assault rifles were originally developed to provide a lighter infantry weapon that could fire more rounds, more rapidly." In short, they were intended to kill more people, more quickly. I am one of several cosponsors of H.R. 1022 because it will keep military-style assault weapons out of our neighborhoods and ensure that law enforcement is not outgunned by criminals wielding weapons of war.

    The prohibitions on assault weapons work. In 1989, when President George H. W. Bush stopped the import of certain assault rifles, the number of imported assault rifles traced to crime dropped by 45% in one year. After the 1994 ban was enacted, there were 18% fewer assault weapons traced to crime in the first eight months of 1995 than were traced in the same period in the previous year. Unfortunately, shortly after the 1994 ban, slight cosmetic modifications were made to the prohibited assault weapons to evade the law. Since these design changes were made, military-style assault weapons have reentered the civilian market. The MAC-10 has been replaced by the MPA-10 and the TEC-9 by the AB-10, for "after ban."

    After the fall of Kabul in November 2001, a document found in a safe house entitled "How Can I Train Myself for Jihad?" advised readers of the ripe availability of assault weapons in the United States. Given the threats to our national security, we must ensure that military style weapons do not fall into the hands of would-be terrorists. The very firearms that the new Assault Weapons Ban would prohibit are those that make aiming and spraying large amounts of bullets simpler. I believe that this ban will make important steps in cutting down violent crime both domestically and internationally.

    Although we differ in our positions, I hope that you will respect the integrity of my views, as I respect yours. I am sure there are other matters of concern to you on which we agree, and I hope you will feel free to contact me again about matters that are important to you.

    Sincerely,

    Louise Slaughter
    Member of Congress

    I think you should call her on it, and forward a copy of the email to the chair of the ethics committee.

    call her on which part? ...the fact that she accepted $250 from the BC and then promoted their agenda? ...I don't know if that's anything new...all of the co-sponsors get money from them in the form of reelection contributions...besides, McCarthy (NY) and Kenedy (MA) get a LOT more money than she does

    I know that PACs can and do give to other PACs. But can it really be true that all the Brady Campaign had to donate to national campaigns was $6,500!? (One can only hope....)

    I’m proud to notice none from my state (New Mexico). FYI our governor (presidential candidate Bill Richardson) is pro gun and has a conceal carry permit himself.

    Write your Rep today!

    Sickening.

    Robert Wexler is the jerkoff from just south of me here in Florida. He's a mealy-mouthed loser the likes of Schumer. If anyone was gonna get on board with this thing, it was him.

    My rep here is Ron Klein (the democrat LOBBYIST SCUMBAG that the democrat voters of florida somehow forgot to hate). I'll be watching for his name, and calling his office this week.
