Pennsylvania’s Democratic Gun Control Package

Fortunately, even the sponsors are basically conceding that their modern semi-auto ban and repeal of Castle Doctrine aren’t likely to go anywhere. However, even western Pennsylvania lawmakers are touting that they are supposedly hearing from other legislators that they are open to talk of more gun control.

  1. Contacted my Reps today…by the time all this is over they are gonna be sick of hearing from me.
    Thats what we have to do however, contact them every week until these Bills are dead.
    We have to let them know we are serious,and these issues will guide us when they are up for re-election.

    1. You don’t need to contact them every single week. If they get completely sick of hearing from you as an individual, then your calls and letters will be ignored. I’m not saying that all persistence is bad, but don’t make it so that the person answering the phone, opening the mail, or downloading the email rolls their eyes when they see/hear your name.

      1. Good point.
        I just want them to realize people are serious about this issue.

        1. And you can express that without becoming a joke to the office staff. If you have been contacting them every week, then give it a rest for a little while. When you see serious action on something, then contact them.

          1. Jokes vote, so don’t worry about being a joke. We’re all jokes to all of them, until election time comes, even if our long, thoughtful, and not-too-frequent letters would bring a tear to anyone else’s eyes.

            If you’re worried about being a joke, then concentrate on convincing them you’re an opinion leader among jokes, who are probably not going to vote for them in 2014.

            Take the word “respect” out of your vocabulary when thinking about legislators. They don’t respect you, beyond what you will do for them, and the attitude is to be reciprocated. And don’t get caught up in that “respect for the office” BS.

    2. Sick of hearing from you? Probably not. Every week or two I get a tract in the mail from the Jehovah’s Witnesses. I’m not annoyed or impressed. I just toss them in the trash unread. Wanna bet they do the same to your letters?

      1. I’ll bet you’d be concerned if you got 500 tracts a day from the Jehovah’s Witnesses, and Jehovah’s Witnesses got to decide whether you’d keep your job, next year! :-)
