Politicians in Colorado have openly admitted to ignoring all pro-rkba correspondence and testimony in the passage of the recent gun control laws in that state. If that behavior exists in other states and at the national level, and that seems to the case, all the letter writing in the world does not matter. They feel confident that they can pass what they want. But, that was not the point of my idea. It was really to see if people are willing to think about standing up and being counted.

How would your proposed exercise have an impact on gun control efforts?

What purpose supportive of the RKBA would your exercise serve? Why would you think it would serve that purpose? How would it serve that purpose? Any evidence or data to support your beliefs?
