Posted on 01/16/2013 6:51:48 PM PST by palmer
"I was going to write my Congressman but there was a sudden gust of wind and the letter blew away." Make sense? How about: this: "I lost my firearms in a (insert overused unfunny cliche) accident so I no longer exercise my Second Amendment rights." In other words, I'll just pretend to not be armed until some ill-defined time in the future, and then I'll get out my firearms, and do some practice since I won't have had any for years and then... ?? Maybe at that point I'll find my pen and some more paper and ???
Good for you! Seriously.
Not sure I’m really understanding the point you’re trying to make though.
I called my senator but her last name is Feinstein, so it is the same as throwing up a letter into the wind
I would love to fight this in the political Arena, but unfortunately I have Sen.s Mikulski, Cardin ,and Representative Steny Hoyer.
My letter may as well be lost as to write to these liberal piss-ants.
when the republican party called for a donation, I gave him a long winded rant and hung up on him. May as well have started punching and slapping the wind
Call the capitol switchboard and ask for any Congress Critter you want. It will help if you are prepared to give an address and zip code from their district. 202-224-3121. Or you can call after hours and leave them a voice mail.
At what point do we stand and fight? What’s the trigger event for you? Abrogation of the 2nd? Suspension of habeus corpus? Cancellation of an election?
“”I lost my firearms in a (insert overused unfunny cliche) accident “
I sold all of mine in a private sale to a couple of New Yorkers.
>> Or you can call after hours and leave them a voice mail.
Unless their mailbox is full. Which is usually.
Let’s face it — if you’re not a big donor they don’t give a rat’s ass about hearing from you.
More precisely — their INTERNS don’t give a rat’s ass.
Mr. or Mrs. Important Representative him/herself are too important to have contact with mere citizens.
I was freaked out the past week of so about obamas executive orders. BUT after reading them I believe he has blinked.
He is toothless. He wants congress to deal with this.
The congress and Senate are too afraid to pass anything as they WILL LOSE THEIR JOBS.
HOO HOO today was a good day!
Buy more firearms and donate them to the Urban Outdoorsmen.
You can pry them from my old gray head.
The moment any gun-grabber decides to visit my area....
I get and second his point.
Too many gun owners will not admit thereto without veiling the fact in a lame overused embarrassing joke about “lost ‘em all in a boating accident”.
They’re the people who, when needed to stand up and fight, will quietly excuse themselves due to some subsequent engagement.
Bugs the hell outta me here on FR.
At this point, I would be very careful writing to any Federal official. I have a sneaking suspicion that the names and address of dissidents will be kept for future use. Me? As the tag-line says. Loading up and hunkering down. Burying firearms and ammo in the side lot.
Abrogation is being done one infringement at a time. We have to fight every infringement. Read the NRA website that I linked to. They may not be perfect but they say we have to stand and fight. We need to do so while we have numbers to do so. If we "lose" too many firearms in accidents, then we lose politically.
You'd think with all the damn "boating accidents" that FR consisted of nothing but Kennedys.
Your prior rants on this topic were my inspiration.
You can choose to do whatever you want to do. I am only suggesting that people should not copy your strategy.
