Here's my letter already sent to my Representative and two (2) Senators of my state. Feel free to copy any portions or the entire letter and attach your name as needed. We all need to let our voices be heard to avoid any nasty bills restricting what type of firearm we can own or not own. We must not allow the AWB to be put back into place !

Dear Congressman,

I’m a law abiding US citizen and gun enthusiast as well as a collector of unique firearms. As a lawmaker, it is your duty to uphold and defend the US Constitution per your oath into office including the 2[SUP]nd[/SUP] Amendment which allows citizens like myself to own firearms whether their use is for protection, sporting, or collected and used as a recreational tool safely in a law abiding manner.

I’m opposed to any federal restrictions on my hobby to pursue collecting more firearms in the future. We have plenty of restrictions already in place and any new legislation should be left for States to pursue on their own if need be.

The portion of the economy related to firearm shooters, collectors, and related recreational activities will be severely harmed with any new restrictive legislation that might be pursued as a means to ‘control’ who and who cannot own certain types of firearms.

In case you may not know already, ‘assault style weapons’ may imitate military style rifles in looks but do not equal them in performance. For example, AR-15’s and AK style rifles are all semi-automatic meaning you must pull the trigger each time to fire off a shot. These military ‘style’ weapons are NOT the same that is used on the battlefield and are no more dangerous than a deer rifle and in some cases less so depending on caliber.

I’m urging you as a concerned citizen to choose carefully when voting on gun related legislation and to avoid any bill that would prove to be more restrictive in nature.

Respectfully,
Patriot and fellow American,
(name)

I've written so many letters on 2nd amendment issue to these jerks my arm is getting tired. McCain usually replies months later saying he doesn't agree with my point of view.

He's still in office and so are the rest of the libtards. Why is everyone else blind to these people?

Senatards, and CON-gressman just get in front of microphones, and lie about the emails, phone calls they are receiving. If they are getting feedback 2to1 AGAINST how they feel on a matter, they just reverse the numbers in THEIR favor! As soon as these Idiots decide to become dishonest (usually during their first run for politics) you're screwed. They are ALL there to enhance their own lives, PERIOD!

Just got this from GOA.

Anti-gun Liberals Pulling Out the Stops to Get a Radical Supreme Court Justice


ACTION: Contact Senator Mitch McConnelland urge him to stand strong against the media pressure. Demand that he block any anti-gun “swing vote” from moving through the Senate and being confirmed to the Supreme Court.

Don’t Let McConnell Backtrack on Blocking Obama’s Anti-gun Nominee!

Mitch McConnell is under a lot of heat from the liberal media.

But he got it right when he recently indicated that Obama's effort to snuff out the Second Amendment needs to be nipped in the bud.

No radical Supreme Court nominee to make the rounds and visit with Republican senators.

No hearings. No floor votes. No possibility of movement or confirmation.

Nothing … period.

Because, make no mistake about it: If Obama gets his pick, the Second Amendment, as far as the corrupt courts are concerned, is dead.

Senator McConnell said that the next president should get to fill Antonin Scalia’s seat. But he’s now coming under intense pressure to buckle under.

The liberal media and legislators are demanding that McConnell begin the process of reviewing a presidential nominee once he’s put forward -- a process that would, almost invariably, result in the confirmation of a radical, anti-gun “swing vote” Justice to the Supreme Court.

If this happens, the court will reverseHeller, and will, for the remainder of our lifetimes, hold that the Second Amendment applies only to militias, not individual rights.

If Obama gets his pick, the court will reverseMcDonald, meaning that the states will be free to impose a total confiscation of all guns.

If Obama gets his pick, 5,000,000 illegals will be legalized by executive fiat. And the electorate will be so transformed that the national government will become like California's -- for the remainder of our lifetimes.

So it is no surprise that Obama and the "puppet press" is going "full goosestep" in their efforts to beat Republicans into submission.

On Thursday, theNew York Timeseffectively called the GOP "racists" for refusing to approve Obama's anti-gun pick.

Tragically, some brain-dead Republicans think they can buy off Obama and the puppet press by moving the nomination forward, but stopping short of confirmation.

This is insanity, and GOA has posted a Fact Sheet on the GOA site which answers point-by-point the nay-sayers who claim that Republican Senators will shoot themselves in the proverbial foot by blocking Obama’s eventual nominee.

It’s just not so.

We Don’t Need to Play “Cutesy” with the Potential Repeal of the 2nd Amendment

MSNBC has echoed Obama's strategy over and over again.

They want to put a "human face" on the nominee by having Senate Democrats parade him or her around Senate offices.

To some extent, this will happen when the nomination is made. But, if the nominee treks from one Republican office to the next in anticipation of hearings, the process will be dramatically intensified.

If the nominee testifies before the Judiciary Committee, with his or her photogenic as a backdrop, the process will accelerate.

And, when the nominee gives Hillary Clinton-like fraudulent testimony about his or her love for the Second Amendment and stare decisis, the process will become very difficult to stop.

Each step of the way will encourage the press to focus white-hot attention on the nominee and white-hot attacks on Republicans.

And make no mistake about it: It is not procedurally possible to hold hearings and not open the door to a Senate floor vote.

Under those circumstances, Harry Reid will use the Senate rules to discharge the nomination from committee and onto the senate floor for a vote.

So enough of this mythology that Republicans can "feed the alligator" but not be eaten by it.

If Republicans cannot withstand the pressure to "do something," they will not be able to withstand the pressure to vote "yes." Particularly given the possibility that Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid is going to use parliamentary tools to "nuke" the filibuster and confirm the nomination with 50 votes (plus Biden) -- rather than being blocked by 60-vote supermajority.

Realize that when Obama says about his nominations that "They deserve a vote," what he really means is "They deserve a ‘yes’ vote!"

And, by giving Obama step-by-step victories at each stage of the process, Republicans only make it harder on themselves and more difficult later on.

The liberal media is pulling out the stops to shame Mitch McConnell into allowing votes on a presidential nominee.

We need to exert counter pressure.

We need toswamp Senator Mitch McConnell’s officewith phone calls and mail from gun owners nationwide, encouraging him NOT to back down.

Urge Senator McConnellto block any anti-gun “swing vote” from moving through the Senate and being confirmed to the Supreme Court.

Thank you for taking action. We need your activism like never before!

Sincerely,

Michael Hammond
GOA Legislative Counsel

P.S. Contact Senator Mitch McConnell and urge him to stand strong against the media pressure. You can send a pre-written letter hereor call Sen. McConnell’s office at 202-224-2541.

Urge him to block the legislative process and prevent any consideration of an anti-Supreme Court Justice who is nominated by this lawless president. Let him know that you, and the entire nation, will be closely watching he does.
