    Thank you on behalf of all of us for writing in to him. It's easy to be glum and think that contacting a legislator won't change anything. But these few hundred votes on any possible gun control measures have such large implications that each one counts, and each person behind that vote should be contacted by constituents. You rock, man.

    a while back he took a rather literal interpertation on the 4a during a PATRIOT act hearing (I'm going from memory here, look for it on YouTube)
    someone should remind him about that day and ask him to read the 2a out loud

    It's actually difficult for me to take Ol' Stuart Smalley seriously :rolleyes: (not sure what MN. was thinking by electing SNL people for the United States Congress)...That said I do not find anything positive in the aforementioned link as it looks like more status-quo Dem anti behavior?

    Sounds like he's trying to walk the reelection tightrope. He only won on the slimmest of margins to begin with.

    Freaky Frank is just playing his cards--another politician that talks and says nothing.

    "I'm good enough, I'm smart enough, and doggone it, people like me." ;) This may be lost on the younger crowd here that's not familiar with 20th Century SNL...

    Not all gun owners and RKBA proponents are Republicans.

    Why do so many people not grasp that?

    Agreed--I'm neither Dem or Rep.

    Me neither. I got left behind by both quite a few years ago.

    I think you and I are no longer the "exception" to the rule. As you mentioned, they both seem to have veered off course to say the least. That said, we're in a position come voting time where we have to analyse the "two choices" and then "pick your poison" so to speak. Not ideal by a long-shot but it's just one of those things you've gotta do in terms of attempting to put in office politicians that will best "defend" 2A.

    I see you're in CO.--I used to live there (Den./Aurora) in the mid-90s' when it was more of a "Red State" so things are fluid in the Country big-time with ever-changing Demographics...

    I sent an email to Franken. All I got was a confirmation that they received it. Looks like all he is doing is trying to walk a fine line to get reelected.

    I followed a link the other day to e-mail my congressional reps about all this upcoming gun control legislation. Then I realized who my reps were:
    Senator John Cornyn, Senator Ted Cruz, and U.S. Rep Joe Barton.

    No sense wasting my time e-mailing those guys, they know how I feel.
    They feel the same way.:D

    I just wish more members of Congress felt the same way MY reps feel about "gun control".

    Yeah--we get heavily criticized at times by voting per "litmus test" on 2A...But I think many of us believe that if a politician does not support 2A, then his or her entire character cannot be trusted (in all policy arenas)…It's just that fundamental.

    While not are all Republicans (Libertarian here) I cannot fathom why somebody who feels strongly about RKBA issues would be a Democrat.

    I find that I agree with a very High majority of politicians on other topics that are truely Pro 2A.

    I can handle differences in a lot of things, but if they are not out to change the constitution (IE they aren't trying to FORCE me to think / act their way) it's okay with me.
