They want to get Senators on the record for 2014, I think. This morning they put out a call to keep the phone calls coming to key Senators who are likely wavering:
So please, call each of the senators below and tell them to vote NO on any gun ban…NO on any magazine ban…NO on criminalizing private firearm transfers…and NO on any gun registration scheme.
