    The local anti organization writes me to get on the "write your congressman" bandwagon. They write so well, it seems a shame to waste the rhetoric. Just sub 'support' for 'oppose' at the appropriate places. Don't bother writing Mr. Pascoe, he's hopeless.

    Please help prevent gun violence by contacting your Senators regarding
    the legislation below.

    Senator Ben Nighthorse Campbell
    380 Russell Senate Bldg
    Washington DC 20510

    Senator Wayne Allard
    525 Dirksen Senate Bldg
    Washington DC 20510

    1) The current assault weapons ban is scheduled to expire in 2004
    unless Congress and the President act to extend it. A failure to do
    so would put military style rapid-fire assault weapons back on our
    streets. Please urge your Senators to renew and strengthen the
    assault weapons ban by supporting S 1431.

    2) Another bill (S. 659) would grant sweeping immunity to
    irresponsible gun makers, distributors and dealers such as Bull's Eye
    Shooter Supply which armed the DC snipers and sold guns used in at
    least 52 other crimes. It would slam shut the courthouse door on
    victims of gun crimes and accidents. We urge you to contact your
    Senators and ask them to oppose S. 659, also known as the Gun Industry
    Immunity bill.

    3) As currently written, the Omnibus Appropriations Bill would
    destroy records of firearms sales within 24 hours instead of the
    current 90-day law which allows for the system to be audited and
    ensures that dealers conduct background checks properly. The bill
    would also hamper law enforcement’s ability to share and analyze
    crime-gun trace data. Please urge your Senators to oppose it because
    of these senseless provisions.

    Thank you and Happy New Year!

    Ben Nighthorse Campbell has been very good to law enforcement. If there's a working-officer side to an issue, thats where you'll find him. Therefor, it is vital that we do not allow the antis to define the AWB that way. If your a police officer here in Colorado, get writing. Let Senator Campbell know how much the ban has damaged public trust in all levels of government. He's been a voice for law enforcement, and his vote on this issue is ours to lose.

    My letters on the way, where's yours?

    Thanks for the reminder Billll, we really do all need to be told to get off it and get writing occasionally...

    In the moment
    If I were you guys, I would take the anti's arguments and dissect them piece by piece using facts, not emotional rhetoric.
