Take Action!

Just a reminder, if you haven’t already, contact your lawmakers. NRA has a handy method to do it quickly, but sending your own usually has more impact. Every person who writes gives more leverage to the lobbyists on the Hill to beat this crap, and it’s all crap. Tell your elected officials to vote for none of it. They already rejected the compromise offer, so screw them. Tell them no more gun control. Period.

    Action taken, with a little note added in asking them to oppose any legislation that would strip individuals of their 5th amendment rights.

    I’m afraid the writing is already on the wall and ILA has already consented to push Cornyn’s bill through. They won’t push national reciprocity, but they’ll push a gun control bill to keep people on a secret government list from buying a gun…

    And both Cox and Lapierre were out there publicly advocating that nightclubs should be gun free. It’s time for these clowns to go.

      You really want them out there on National TV advocating people should carry firearms in an environment where people often drink to excess? I’m sure that will be a real winner among the public.

      They wouldn’t be pushing Cornyn’s bill if the shit weren’t headed south already. Sometimes there’s no “I’m not taking a bite of that shit sandwich.”

      As it is, the bill will create a 72 hour delay for people on the list. People will be able to get off. Probably through a VAF (Voluntary Appeals File) and a UPIN number. It’s a pain in the ass, but it’s far preferable to the half a dozen or so other bills being prepared, a few of which might have the votes.

    Up to mass murder in a nightclub most of us gunnies thought carry and clubbing is bad mix. Now I am not so sure. But I wlll not blame Coz and Lapierre for espousing what the majority of us thought.

  4. Done.

    We also wrote out checks to VCDL ($1500), NYSRPA ($1000) and NRA-ILA ($1000). We mentioned that in the correspondence as well.

      That’s quite generous! Thanks. Making up for my slacker ass. I used to donate more, but money is tight in the hope & change economy.

      • It was very tough for us to donate that amount as a small buisness and raising a family. But I wanted to get the point across to them that the aforementioned organizations got my money and they didn’t.

    I currently live in Massachusetts. For the most part, I haven’t bothered contacting my federal legislators very often, basically looking at it as a waste of time. Should I reconsider? Is there some aspect I’m not seeing where contacting Elizabeth Warren, for example, and telling her to oppose gun control will actually make a difference?

    • Sebastian says:

      It always helps to hear from constituents. No, she won’t change her mind, but they need to know we’re still out there. People giving up is what allows them to hold on to these states.

    This comment below is one of the NYT’s Picks; 11 out of 329.

    “E.C. Alabama 11 hours ago
    The tenor of the stories is always that the Republicans are in danger politically because of the gun issue.
    But in the last two decades, the exact opposite has happened. Support for gun confiscation has been absolutely catastrophic for Democrats. They would have a majority in the House and probably the Senate right now were they not so out of step with the majority of voters who care about the issue.
