Spread the word to contact our reps

I am posting this in the comments of every gun related article I come across online:

(to prevent spam, some sites will not allow http or www in the comments so leave them off if you have to, but put them on the front of the links if you can)

----

Don't just post your views on gun control here. Our rights are too important to let them be stolen from us.

Contact your representatives today:

Don't just contact them once. Every time there's any news of consequence on the bills moving ahead let them know your desire to have them oppose them.

Thus far I've had responses from both US Senators, my US Representative, and the Governor. No response from the President yet.

The responses are obviously 'canned' letters. The important thing is that their staffs do keep a record of the number of contacts for each 'side' of an issue. Numbers count.

Anyone know if you can use the Ruger advocacy link listed more than once? I've already sent original thoughts to my reps and sent the Ruger letter also. I'm just wondering if I can keep spamming them with the Ruger Form so I only have to write my own letters on occasion when there is new info/data to be either refuted or spread.

and

Find your US Senator: http://www.senate.gov/general/contac...nators_cfm.cfm
