*UPDATED* Write to your representatives. *NOW INCL. SAMPLE LETTER*


The NRA has set up a great site with pre-written letters that you can edit and/or add your own opinions to also. Easy as a few clicks to send letters to all of your state and federal representatives as well as the President too.

Please take the few minutes to do this. We need to show them that AMERICA does NOT support any legislation that will limit or ban us from purchasing or owning ANY kind of Semi-Automatic Weapon or the capacity of the magazines for those same weapons!

Here's the link: LINK

Here's another great site for contacting your congressional representatives and the President. This comes from the MAC YouTube Video guy.

This link will take you to a Congressional website where you can quickly and easily email your Senators, Congressmen and the President: LINK

You may use this message to send to your Senators, Congressmen and the President:

----------------

Greetings,

Due to the recent events at Sandy Hook elementary school we now face renewed threats to our Constitutional rights. While I understand how painful the loss must be for those touched by this tragedy, blaming firearms or their owners and punishing them is not the answer to the challenges we face as a nation.

We already have laws that were violated by a man who was likely psychotic and heavily medicated. This man was stopped by the mandatory background check from purchasing firearms. He then decided to murder his mother and take her legally owned firearms to commit this tragedy.

If your true goal is to protect our children, then enact legislation that will do that. Banning firearms that are rarely used in crime (less than 1% of the time) is not going to stop such tragedies, that was proven in 1999 when the Columbine shooting took place under the 1994 ban. Do something meaningful, please. Make committing the insane easier. Put armed security guards in our schools. But do not strip us of our rights and property by passing additional anti-gun laws that have historically had no positive effect on crime in our nation or others.

Thank you.

I'll write David and Mary, but I know it'll just go in the trash.

The link in my OP will bring you to a page with this map on it:



Put in your zip code and it will bring up a page with this info on it. Click the first link and there will be the pre-written letter, which you can add to if you'd like (I added a little something about urging them NOT to support any kind of ban or limitation on Semi-Auto Weapons):



On that same page, below the info from above, there should be a listing of all your state and federal representatives. You can click each name and send them letters. These won't be pre-written. I simply copied the text that I added in the original letters (about not supporting a ban) and sent it to all of them individually:

My State Senator, A.G. Crowe just replied to my email... With a type and all!

quote:

Thanks foe the email sharing your position about guns of which I agree with you.
Take care, A.G.


And he won my vote for his re-election whenever his term is up with those last 4 words.
