Not the Last We’ve Seen of Gun Control – More Coming This Week

If you haven’t called already, it’s not too late. I’m told that yesterday’s amendments offered are not the last we’ll see of gun control in the Senate, and that more votes are very likely this week. Keep the pressure on.

  1. Patrick Henry, the 2nd says:

    Thanks for the heads up. I say even if you called, call again.

    I had a feeling yesterday isn’t the last of the push.

  2. Would faxing senators a letter with images of cashed checks to 2A groups have a bigger impact than just email or phone call?

  3. Daniel Ortiz says:

    To those who call or write their elected representatives, do you contact just those in your district (for representatives) or state (for senators)? Or do you just go down the lists, regardless of jurisdiction?

    Have you found better luck calling over emailing, or writing physical letters?

    I appreciate the input.

      I’d contact your federal senators, and we have a state issue coming up that will need attention, but I’ll mention that tomorrow.

      At the state level, basically, Rep. Steve Santarsiero, who is a carpetbagger from New Jersey and now running for Congress in my district, managed to get “terror watch list” discharged onto the floor of the PA House. I think we’ll defeat it, but it’s worth calling just to convince them we pay attention.

      • Daniel Ortiz says:

        I’m from Texas, West Houston, and my representative seems pretty firmly on the 2A side. I plan to email him anyway, as well as Cruz and Cornyn, just to say Jeep up the good work. I understand Cornyn proposed a compromise bill that was rejected early on, but it seemed the most reasonable of them all.

    I have gotten nothing but voicemail greetings when I have called the numbers for Toomey and Casey. It seems like our side is fired up. I have left voicemail messages, but that’s not the same as talking to a person.

  5. Fred says:

    Call ten times, then call again. I talked to staffers of both mine yesterday and left voice mails and emails all weekend. Will call some more.

  6. HappyWarrior6 says:

    Just got an email blast from NRA-ILA. PA Rep. Santarsiero filed a discharge petition, so it looks like a terror watch list bill will be going to the full floor of the House. Time to contact Congress too.

  7. Jim Jones says:

    What kind of additional votes can there be? What other legislations? This was already a dog-&-pony show for the electorate.
