I submitted a pro gun answer to a poll one time associated w/ the BC, and that got me on their mail list. Anyway, here is what they sent me today... In case anyone was wondering what the ant-gun is doing in the wake of the VT tragedy:

Ask Our Officials: "What are YOU going to do about it?"

Dear StoptheNRA Member,

My heart continues to ache for the victims, their families, and the Virginia Tech community. After my husband was shot by a deranged man, our lives were never the same. But at some point, Jim and I decided to stop hurting and take action.

Eight years ago today was the horrific tragedy at Columbine High School. And in that eight years, no significant action has been taken in our country to prevent gun violence.

Elected officials continue to ignore our gun violence problem. Itís time for them to answer one question: "What are YOU going to do about it?"

Weíre waging a campaign to ask our nation's leaders . . . the President, the Congress, the presidential candidates, state officials and local governments . . . asking them, "What are YOU going to do about it?"

32 people were murdered on Monday at Virginia Tech
32 people are murdered every day by gun violence in America

As a nation we must do better

A clever donor has started her own email campaign asking her contacts to contribute $32 or more today to help sustain our campaign to ask our nationís leaders, "What are YOU going to do about it?"

What a great idea. Will you join her by making a gift today and asking your contacts to join you?

Right now, we are focusing on the Presidential candidates all of whom have been disturbingly silent on the issue.

Call those who want to be President, and ask them "What are YOU going to do about it? What we're doing now is not working. Doing nothing is not an option. Please take action now."

Your support is the life of our campaign. This is an unbudgeted project that can only be sustained with your generous support today.

We can no longer wait and we must take action . . . too many lives are being lost. So today, I respectfully ask, "What are YOU going to do about it?"

Warm regards and growing optimism,

Sarah Brady, Chair
Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence



Athough this one encourages you to contact your politicians, like most of their communication I've gotten so far, they never forget to stick their hand out for a donation...

FWIW, in case any one is interested in what's going on out there...

I used that "email your representatives with one click" link they sent out the other day to send off a pro-RKBA email, since their header and body could be modified.

Even got back a "thank you" from the Brady Bunch. Hee, hee...

This sounds like a good idea but someone brought up a point in another thread that should be taken into consideration. These officials dont have time to read every email, they just count tallies. If your response is coming from the Brady links it may just be included in their column and not read to find out that it is in fact a differing view. Something to think about....
