The NRA has created a website that will automatically send emails to Obama, Biden, your Senators and Representative, your governor, state attorney general, and state House and Senate members. You can either use their pre-written letter or add your own comments.

Whichever you choose, please take this opportunity to flood their offices with messages showing that we, the people, DO NOT support their plans to gut the Second Amendment!

    I just received the following form e-mail from Bennet’s office in reply:

    Dear XXXXXXX:

    Thank you for contacting me regarding some of the different gun proposals that have been introduced during the 113th Congress, including S.33 introduced by Senator Frank Lautenberg, S.150 introduced by Senator Dianne Feinstein, and the proposal put forth by President Obama. I appreciate hearing from you.

    The numerous tragedies that our nation has had to face over the past year have been staggering. My own family, like all Americans, has been repeatedly shocked and deeply saddened by the violence we have witnessed, and my heart continues to be with the victims and their families. As Coloradans, we know how this type of tragedy can shake a community to its core and in the aftermath of these abhorrent acts our priority should be on supporting the survivors and families, and healing our communities.

    So far, so good…

    We must have a real discussion in this country about finding ways to stop these senseless shootings. I believe a combination of enhanced mental health services, restrictions on high capacity magazines and military grade weapons, expanded background checks, and elimination of the gun show loophole are sensible steps that can protect our communities and particularly, our children. (emphasis mine)

    Now, we have a problem. First, there will be no inclusion of mental health information in the background checks, because HIPPA prevents it. Magazine restrictions are not only irrelevant, but impossible to enforce. “Expanded background checks” can only work if there’s also universal gun registration, which is a non-starter. And contrary to this genius’s belief, there is no “gun show loophole” in Colorado. EVERY gun sold at a gun show in this state has to have a background check. Maybe he should brush up on the laws of the state he purports to represent.

    In Colorado, we support the right to bear arms and the ability of people to recreate, hunt, and protect their homes, and we want to keep the wrong weapons out the hands of the wrong people. I believe we can have a civil discussion that addresses these issues and as the recommendations by the President’s task force are considered in Congress, we will ensure that Colorado’s voices are heard.

    In addition to the bills referenced above, there are a number of different legislative proposals on gun policy currently before Congress. I am evaluating all of the different bills, and I will keep your thoughts in mind as we work on this issue in the Senate. Let us all continue to keep the communities affected by these tragic acts in our thoughts and prayers.

    I value the input of fellow Coloradans in considering the wide variety of important issues and legislative initiatives that come before the Senate. I hope you will continue to inform me of your thoughts and concerns.

    For more information about my priorities as a U.S. Senator, I invite you to visit my website at http://bennet.senate.gov/. Again, thank you for contacting me.

    The rest is your standard politician boilerplate crap.

    @ lobo91:

    That’s why I no longer bother to write my representatives. They just toss my missive into the round file or, at best, dictate a short note of plattitudes that promises exactly nothing on the issue that matters to me. Most of these guys are in “safe” districts, so they don’t really give a rat’s ass what their constituents think. Oh, they won’t stray far enough off the reservation to really piss the votes off, but they’d just as soon drink a bucket of piss as actually pay attention to their constituents.

    @ Iron Fist:
    If enough people write to the congress critters, they will pay attention. I just went that email to all my government officials and I think most of them are pro 2nd amendment people. I’m concerned about my new Congressman, Roger Williams. He seems to think expanded background checks will make a difference. It won’t. The bad guys aren’t going to get any background checks at all. There will be just more hassle for law abiding citizens. I let him know.

    @ Iron Fist:

    Well, the problem I have with contacting my reps is that they rarely answer the question or comment. Their staff looks for one key word, then sends out a form letter than sort of addresses the issue, if you look at it real closely.

    Sent my comment in. To me it’s important to put my name on the effort to maintain freedom.
