    Let you representatives know to oppose this bill (use Congress' messaging service to do it):

    Please oppose this bill by any means available.

    Thank you

    Dear Sir,
    I hope you vote against this lame attempt at another shot at gun control. When will congress stop their attacks on the 2nd Amendment? I would hope you will try to get the laws tougher on criminals. Lets remember, if you take away the law abiding citizens right to bear arms then all you have is criminals with guns. The FBI just released a five year study on gun violence which states, criminals do not care what laws you pass because they do not abide by them. I am looking foward to your support on this issue. This topic is the most important factor in how I will vote in the months and years to come.
    Looking foward to your support,


    This is what I sent to both of my senators.

    Here is the typical politician reply from one of my senators...

    "Dear Mr. XXXX:

    Thank you for contacting me regarding the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS). I appreciate hearing from you and would like to respond to your concerns.

    When our Founding Fathers drafted the Constitution, they included the Second Amendment to guarantee people the right to keep and bear arms. This is a fundamental part of our American identity, and I will work with my Senate colleagues to ensure that this liberty is protected for all law-abiding citizens.

    On January 5, 2007, Representative Carolyn McCarthy (D-NY) introduced the NICS Improvement Act (H.R. 297). This bill would provide grants to states for them to update the NICS to include felons, domestic abusers, and other violent criminals. H.R. 297 was referred to the House Committee on the Judiciary, where it awaits further approval. While no similar legislation has been introduced in the Senate, rest assured that I will keep your views in mind as we proceed in the 110th Congress.

    Again, thank you for sharing your views with me. If you have any additional questions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact me. In addition, for more information about issues and activities important to Florida, please sign up for my weekly newsletter at http://martinez.senate.gov.

    Sincerely,

    Mel Martinez
    United States Senator"

    Just once could they just answer the question with a straight answer?
    "May God have mercy on my enemies, because I won't."
