Yes, calls reportedly have more impact, but like SB said, Jesus H doing nothing is not a better solution. Do the letter and make a call if you are one of the lucky that don't have 2 rabid anti-gun senators. GOA can have my info - FBI/NSA already has everything you do anyway, LOL. I also need to get off my ass and send a sawbuck or two to Firearms Policy Coalition - they just defeated the prohibition on firearms ownership if you are railroaded into some sort of "evaluation" against your will (disgruntled neighbor, divorce/ex-spouse, etc...).

Bump... Just made calls to my Congressman and Senator as well as Senator Graham. And just sent out another round of emails expressing my displeasure with this lunacy. We need to keep up the pressure.

I'm afraid the NRA might be too distracted by internal corruption and their internal power struggles to be of much use in this situation, BUT if they had an ounce of sense they would have been out front of this MONTHS ago and proposed model legislation for a "red flag" law that had some due process protections built in.

We already have that, it's called "call the police about your concern, and let them investigate if a crime has been committed".

Just like with "gun control", there are already laws that cover this.

This is feel good "no fly list" bullshit - too dangerous to have firearms, not dangerous enough to arrest. Just leave this menace free to roam, huh? Maybe he'll take an Ice Pick into a crowd instead. Or put pressure cookers in garbage cans.

No probable cause (but they can enter your house - neat trick, huh?), no facing your accuser, no ability to be represented and present counter evidence, and no punishment for making a false accusation. It's backdoor confiscation.

Pre-Crime in unAmerican - just deal with it, or move.

"My neighbor drinks and drives, I know it for certain" - confiscate his car? (which isn't even a Right). You'd save more lives than ALL firearm murders:

Those of you who "know someone" or "heard from someone" need to save your comments.

1. I don't beleive you're right. Things have changed in regards to tech in just the last year alone.

2. I'm tired of non BTDT members crapping on things.

3. No one said this was a perfect solution or even the only effort.

This isn't open for discussion.

That defeats the purpose(in the eyes of the left) of red flag laws though.

I don't want to derail this thread, but the NRA is part of tne problem. They aren't distracted. They're like the GOP-talk loud, do nothing, take peoples money and then declare they did the best they could.

Likewise not to derail, but they don't even bother to claim they did the best they could... they openly come out in support of the 84 GCA and many other "common sense" or "you don't need those for hunting" BS laws and bans.

IMO-It's better to be a loud, persistent, squeaky wheel with your politicians, than to rely on a group like the NRA to speak for you. (I have the same feelings about the FOP and other "unions" who only speak for the money.)

Contact them often, and get your like minded friends to do the same. Right now we have the left and their mouthpiece media screaming to high heaven about gun law this and gun ban that. Don't let their voices be the only ones heard, because most politicians are mindless, and when they get one sided bombarded, regardless of what we all feel, they will act, and it won't be in our favor.

Thanks SB for this topic.

I just recently let my NRA membership expire , also. I have quietly been wondering why I have been giving them some much needed and hard earned funds these last many years. I like Kristy Titus, though, she's hot, but she also makes a lot of money being hot and a decent shot!
