Stop the Senator Graham Gun Confiscation Bill!

Sharing Poly's great info.

If you have Instagram, GOA has a 1 Click 'Send a letter to all GOP Senators' link in their profile, about Lindsey Graham's insanity.

Anyone have a link to the actual letter I’m supposed to hang my name on? I’d prefer to read what I’m agreeing to, and I can’t find it there.

After you fill in your information and click next you'll see a red link that will expand the letter and let you edit it.

Plenty of ways around that. Fill in whatever, go to next, edit, then edit the whatever as needed or not, then submit.

Form internet letters are frankly just feel good exercises and fund raising gimics. At best some staffer might total up the numbers and inform the congress critter. Mostly they are just deleted. In reality all you are really doing is giving the group your info for later fund raising efforts.

If you want to have a real effect you need real contact. Draft your own letter, print it out, sign it, and mail it in. If you are a constituent of the congress critter then it will really get their attention. Frankly not many people take the time to do all that without really meaning it.

Done, plus a few phone calls and an appointment at the local reps office made.

Frankly, I get tired of someone crapping on things they consider not the perfect solution, that at least get people involved.

Done. I was just talking about this bullshit the other day. I asked the person would they be willing to allow the government to control what they were allowed to say, well 'Hell No', then why would you be OK with them subverting your 2nd Amendment rights with no due process? They would actually be subverting multiple amendments - do not give them any more power.

When someone took the time to do it, my experience was that government employees paused to read it.
