Some letters you may want to send to all concerned. You could also write these as a letter. Might get read and get a reply. Maybe.

Dear Elected Official,

A few days ago I wrote to you to express my concerns with the Obama Administration’s desire to enact new Gun Control legislation in reaction to the recent tragedy in Newton Connecticut. All Americans mourn the loss of innocent young lives, but at the same time we still embrace the freedoms that our Founding Fathers gave us in the US Constitution.

With the recent tragedies committed by deranged individuals, all law-abiding citizens and permanent residents of the United States now face renewed challenges to their Constitutional rights. I truly understand how painful the loss must be for those at the heart of these recent tragedies, I have children of my own and would truly be at a loss if this happened to my family too, however blaming inanimate objects or their owners, and punishing the owners via additional statutes is not the answer to these challenges we face as a nation.

If your true goal is to protect our children, we must reevaluate our nation's system for treating mental illness. Unfortunately, too often mental illness goes undiagnosed and untreated. We must focus on increasing public awareness of the symptoms of mental illness and on improving access to mental health services, with a goal of identifying and treating mental illness earlier on in those it affects. We must have a national database for our health professionals (Doctors, Psychologists, and Psychiatrists). This database should be part of the FBI NICS background check. We also need to put armed security guards in our schools. We put Air Marshals on civilian aircraft after 9/11. Why can’t we do this for our public schools?

The issue of Gun Violence can be addressed without stripping law-abiding citizens of our Constitutional rights and personal property by passing additional statutes that have historically had no positive effect on crime in our nation or others.

I ask you again to reflect on our gun laws and future bills thoughtfully, as the consequences of your decisions will affect the civil rights of every inhabitant within our United States of America. As a constituent, I can make this promise to you…I will donate time and money for campaigns in every upcoming election. I will donate time and money to participate in every grass roots effort to defend the Second Amendment. I will donate time and money to pursue every legal course of action against those who attempt to infringe on my right to keep and bear arms. If you cannot support me on this important matter, then I cannot support you representing me in the future.

Thank you for your time.

ANOTHER ONE.

We are all saddened by the tragedy in Newtown, CT. However, it would be a mistake to base gun policy on this sad event. I believe there are other, better solutions to incidents like these besides gun control.

Gun control has been shown to be ineffective in reducing violent crime and infringes on the Second Amendment rights of Americans. I urge you to oppose any new gun restrictions.

Thank you,
Your Name

More. It's a little long.

Dear Elected Official,

It is my understanding that the President of the United States has decided to take on the issue of Gun Rights for Americans as a result of the recent tragedy in Newtown Connecticut. The President has appointed the Vice President of the United States to lead an administration-wide effort to curb gun violence in America, and has vowed to use “whatever power this office holds” in efforts to prevent “more tragedies like this” referring to the massacre that occurred in Newtown Connecticut.

The Mainstream Media continues to portray that all Americans are asking for gun control as a result of the massacre in Newtown Connecticut. That is not true. A recent Gallup Poll showed Americans feel that an increased police presence at schools, increased government spending on mental health screening and treatment, and decreased depiction of gun violence in entertainment venues would be effective in preventing mass shootings at schools. I encourage you to research this as you draft the way-ahead on curbing gun violence in America.

As my elected official, you will undoubtedly be asked to participate on committee in order to draft a way-ahead to solve the problem of gun violence in America. As my elected officials, you will undoubtedly be asked to vote on potential bill(s) that may affect my gun rights as guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States of America. Specifically, the Second Amendment which reads:

“A well-regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”

As a law-abiding citizen of the United States of America, it is imperative that you not infringe on my right to keep and bear arms as guaranteed by the United States Constitution written by the Founding Fathers. It is your responsibility as my elected official to dutifully represent the will of The People, correctly interpret The United States Constitution, and diligently reflect on court cases throughout our proud history as you draft the way-ahead to curb gun violence.
There are approximately 65 million gun owners in the United States who enjoy the protection of our Bill of Rights. The Second Amendment protects their right and the right of every citizen to legally own and operate guns. This right has been protected in courts over the course of a hundred plus years.

The Supreme Court recognized that the right to arms is an individual right in U.S. v. Cruikshank (1876), Presser v. Illinois (1886), Miller v. Texas (1894), U.S. v. Miller (1939) and U.S. v. Verdugo-Urquidez (1990). In U.S. v. Cruikshank, the Court also recognized that the right pre-existed the Constitution. Most recently in 2010, the Supreme Court ruled that the Second Amendment, which forbids Congress from infringing the right to keep and bear arms, also applies to state and local governments.

Since our inalienable rights include life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, we cannot exercise those rights if we are not safe. Self-protection and the ability to fight against tyranny are core values our Founding Fathers believed and embedded within The Constitution. They envisioned a citizenry that must protect itself. The Second Amendment guarantees my right to protect myself and my family.

Attempts to institute a Ban on certain types of weapons is nothing short of telling the American People what type of guns they can own as it pertains to the Second Amendment. What will you do next? Tell the American People what kind of religion they can practice as it pertains to the First Amendment?

Those who oppose our Second Amendment would like for us to believe in a government that protects its people. They would like to strip peaceful citizens of their basic right to safety in an attempt to achieve safe neighborhoods. However, a vibrant democracy demands that we protect ourselves, because we are the embodiment of democracy and government is but our tool. Further regulating gun ownership only affects law-abiding citizens, resulting in criminals operating guns.

As a law-abiding citizen of this great land, it must be said that the focus should rest upon education and the enforcement of current laws. Gun safety education has lowered accidental deaths to less than 1% of all accidental deaths. Therefore, those who willingly use guns irresponsibly must be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
As it can be seen, there are choices we must face individually and as a nation. If we decide to give our government too much control, we will be making it an arbiter for determining our fate instead of helping us to determine our own fate. Restricting every citizen’s freedom is a dangerous proposition with grave consequences.

Do we want a larger government that envelopes our lives in the name of safety or do we want a smart government that helps teach us to be responsible and free? Some people believe that we can only be safe when government inhibits our basic freedom, making it harder to protect ourselves. This is a government that evades issues of personal responsibility, holds the actions of criminals against those who are law-abiding, and regulates our lives for us.

Our other choice is that we fashion a smart government that helps teach us to be responsible and free. The millions of Americans who support this view believe that we can only be safe when we are informed of the issues and make decisions for ourselves. These Americans know the danger of fashioning a powerful government and a weak citizenry. Reflect on the war that was fought against England to attain our freedom; remember what risks our Founding Fathers took to obtain a free society and a government that was not intrusive.

I ask you, which government would you rather fashion? Which government helps you to be free?

Reflect on our gun laws and future bills thoughtfully, as the consequences of your decisions will affect the civil rights of every inhabitant within our United States of America. As a constituent, I can make this promise to you…I will donate time and money for campaigns in every upcoming election. I will donate time and money to participate in every grass roots effort to defend the Second Amendment. I will donate time and money to pursue every legal course of action against those who attempt to infringe on my right to keep and bear arms.

Thank you for your time in this matter.

Respectfully,

YOUR NAME

Dear Elected Official

Due to the recent events at Sandy Hook elementary school we now face renewed changes 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,
Your Name.

We already have laws that were violated by certain individuals who were likely psychotic and or heavily medicated. The latest individual, Adam Lanza, was stopped by the mandatory background check from purchasing firearms. Adam, not an inanimate object but a person, then decided to murder his own mother and take her legally owned firearms to commit this tragedy. Though we may not agree on all issues, I believe we can all agree that criminals and the criminally ill or insane quite commonly disregard any laws that currently exist. They will more than likely disregard any new statutes put forth in the coming year.

If your true goal is to protect our children, then enact legislation that will do that. Creating new statutes dealing with 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 Columbine took place under the previous 1994 ban. Instead do something more meaningful, please. Make committing the insane easier. Put armed security guards in our schools.

Here is a handy dandy tool too
http://www.nraila.org/get-involved-l...your-reps.aspx


I am writing this response in wake of the recent shootings in Newtown, CT. Public outcry from the uninformed is pushing to reinstate an "assault" weapons ban and to heavily restrict firearms and ammunition sales. The proof is in the statistics; the last ban did NOTHING to curb gun violence in the United States. Several laws were already broken by the shooter in Newtown, including several firearms laws, and murder. Clearly, stricter laws are only going to affect people who abide by the law.

I urge you to strongly resist any further erosion of our 2nd Amendment rights. Give them an inch, and they will take a mile. I hear the term "compromise" from many anti-gun lawmakers. "Compromise" is a term that means "we will take" and "you will lose". Any kind of ban on firearms or ammunition is simply "feel good" legislation, propelled by emotion as opposed to logical decision making, and designed to make a few feel safer. In reality, it does nothing to actually increase safety.

Furthermore, these legislators feel the need to restrict certain types of "military style" guns such as the wildly popular AR-15, or items like pistol grips, muzzle brakes, and bayonet lugs, when nowhere does the 2nd Amendment say anything about firearms being needed for and restricted to "hunting" or "sporting purposes." They are an inalienable right bestowed to us to defend ourselves against tyranny. "A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed."

Another unmentioned result of a weapons ban, is the effect it will have on our already faltering economy. Guns and accessories, and especially the type that are in the anti-gunner's cross hairs, have been selling in record numbers. Thousands of jobs depend on the ability to build and sell these products to law abiding American citizens. Any knee jerk reaction to restrict them will result in a blow to many people's livelihoods. Most guns are generally big ticket items, and further restriction eliminates any potential tax revenue from their sale as well.

For a solution, we need to be putting more guns into the hands of the right people so that they be able to defend themselves. The innocent killed recently were defenseless against any kind of attack, gun or not. One has to think, how many of the recent shootings, or even over the last several years, have taken place in "gun free zones?" It makes perfect sense for the malicious and insane to prey on large groups of unarmed people. The answer isn't to restrict guns, it's to lessen restriction and promote their use for self defense.

Now is not the time to cave in to the pressure and scare tactics that our media and some lawmakers are using to further their agenda. I urge you to oppose all proposed restrictions. Do not give them ANY ground, it will only lead to immediate and future erosion of the liberties that I and many of your freedom loving constituents hold dearly. Make no mistake, opening the door to further infringe the 2nd can and will lead to further erosion of our other liberties as well.

"Laws that forbid the carrying of arms, disarm only those who are neither inclined, nor determined to commit crimes. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants. They serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man."
-- Thomas Jefferson, 1764

Stay strong for freedom,

Thanks for the reminder recon-1!
I have had a NRA membership for the last few years & with your little push I went ahead & got my wife a membership as well.
It's going to take a lot of coin to fund this battle! Gonna give all I can.
Have to get to work on the congress critters also. Some of the excellent letters above just might help.

How much of that have you spent on hold? I joined in September and have yet to receive any confirmation of my membership, no replies to email, and today I got a letter inviting me to join up (FREE KNIFE!!). So far, I have been on hold for twenty minutes, but if you take the option to join they are right there, no hold times.
I am contemplating just stuffing my receipt from the last time I joined into their envelope, wait, a real person! I AM a member, just took two months to get the paperwork in, and another 6 to 8 weeks from then to find out anything. Damn, GOA had my membership info here in three days!

Tonight or tomorrow night I will be getting 1-yr memberships to the Second Amendment Foundation and Gun Owners of America for myself, siblings, and parents. We're in the fight of our lives now. We'll need all the help we can muster from all of these groups.

I've been an NRA member for almost 10 years and I consider them to be an asset for gunowners. These groups are our front line against guncontrol.

I just kicked in another Jackson this morning to NRA-ILA.
