To counter the Obama machine's push for gun control today (22nd). If you're not in NC, call your Senators and rep, natch. ;) Though Hagan could sure use some persuasion....

On Feb. 25 & 26, make ‘Five Phone Calls for Freedom’


Friday, February 22, will witness an unprecedented attack on your rights as Obama mobilizes his army of left-wing activists to push for federal gun bans. “Roll Call” recently ran a piece entitled, “Organizing for America Plans 'National Day of Action' to Mobilize Grass Roots on Guns.” It went on to say:

“Organizing for Action is planning its first official mobilization in support of President Barack Obama’s proposals to curtail gun violence. The nonprofit that inherited Obama’s campaign infrastructure and 2 million strong volunteer army will hold a ‘national day of action’ on Feb. 22, officials said Tuesday.”

If that doesn’t scare you, it should

What you are seeing is “Barry the Community Organizer” doing what he does best: Attacking your rights using millions of rabid radicals who will stoop to any level of deceit in order to control you. The grass roots initiative began with his State of the Union address, in which he packed the house with families of victims of mass killings. Next, Obama went on the road to sell his plan at schools in Atlanta and elsewhere.

Now MoveOn.org is joining the fray by running TV ads that proclaim, “The NRA doesn’t speak for me.” In case you didn’t know it, these are the same folks that you brought you “ACORN”; MoveOn.org is funded by the left wing “Tides Foundation” which is itself funded by none other than freedom-hating billionaire George Soros.

Your voice needed now more than ever

You have politicians scared. As a founding member of the Coalition to Stop the Gun Ban, which now comprises 38 state and national organizations, GRNC members have been blasting Congress with a coordinated message that we will punish any legislator who supports gun control. So to counter your influence, “Barry” plans to “out-grassroots” you. Will you let him?

IMMEDIATE ACTION REQUIRED!


Make ‘Five Phone Calls for Freedom’

To fight back against this left wing attack, we are asking millions of Second Amendment supporters, represented by the Coalition and others, to deliver a loud and clear message to Congress by making 5 phone calls on Monday and Tuesday (Feb. 25 & 26). Please note that we said CALL, not email. We want millions of voices to ring through the congressional switchboard, so please note that you might have to try several times to get through.

Specifically, we are asking you to call:

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell at 202-224-2541

House Speaker John Boehner at 202-225-0600

Senator Richard Burr at 202-224-3154

Senator Kay Hagan at 202-224-6342

Your representative to the U.S. House. To identify your US House representative, go to: http://www.house.gov/representatives/ and then enter your zip code in the upper right corner of the page.

DELIVER THIS MESSAGE

Give congressional staff 3 simple talking points:

Nothing about the federal proposals is acceptable – not banning semi-automatic firearms and magazines, not expanding the list of people prohibited from owning guns, and not registering private gun sales via the National Instant Check System;

Because “compromise” means losing freedom, you will not “compromise” on this issue, including any “lite” version of registering private sales through the National Instant Check System; and

As a member of one of the organizations comprising the National Coalition to Stop the Gun Ban, you will support coordinated Coalition action against any legislator who supports gun control.

ADDITIONAL ACTION

If you have additional time, please CALL other US House representatives in the North Carolina delegation, including:

Rep. G. K. Butterfield, Jr. (D - 01) 202-225-3101

Rep. Renee L. Ellmers (R - 02) 202-225-4531

Rep. Walter B. Jones, Jr. (R - 03) 202-225-3415

Well, how'd it go???

I focused the hardest on Kay Hagan. I'm REALLY better at writing, but gave it everything I've got. Pointed out that the gun control debate was a distraction that was taking us away from finding solutions to the REAL problem (people with absolutely no regard for human life, theirs or anyone else's). And that we needed Democrats who SAY they support the 2A (as Hagan does) to get off the fence and send a message to the Obama Administration that we're done wasting our time on kneejerk, feel-good, NON-solutions.

I used the "advice" Uncle Joe helpfully gave on home defense to hammer home the point that the Obama administration isn't seriously looking for real solutions to make people safer - remember, Biden is the guy who led the gun control talks....

So overall where do they stand?

-Started with Boehner, didn't really get much out of the staffer cuz I didn't really ask for it. Shoulda started with Burr to get warmed up.

-Burr and I are on the "same page" according to staffer, and I told her I deeply thank him for standing up for our rights.

-McConnell's staffer was pretty much the same.

-I admit I didn't get to my rep, I was offline and the postcard I went by didn't have their individual #s listed. He's on our side, but I'll call (or at least email) just the same.

-Hagan. Hooboy, Hagan. Staffer started right off with how she "supports the 2A." Remember that Obama says HE supports it as well...! I'm not giving up, if anything I'll be working harder to try and bring her over to our side. BUT, I will be well and truly surprised if she actually goes against the wishes of Obama, as she has been nothing but a yes-girl to him her entire term.
