    Her stupid list is out, and I would like to suggest an idea. Would it be possible to rally gun owners and supporters of the Constitution to post individually, one at a time on her Facebook page one simple word: "NO"?

    Tens of thousands of single word posts showing solidarity in rejecting her illegal, traitorous bans would deliver quite a message.

    It won't change her mind or stance. She doesn't care

    I don't have Facebook anymore so count me out. But it could be a good idea, for a while at least. I'm sure her Facebook assistants would just end up turning off wall posts for a while. People like her can't stand honest discourse or disagreement for long.

    Also, mr. scott is spot on. People like can't be convinced. The whole world to tell her she's wrong, and she'd stay on course.

    It would convince her that we have too many nuts with guns. She is not going to be rational on the issue. First, she saw her friends killed with a gun. This gave her an understandable emotional set against the guns. Then she has been cursed for years for her position. That hardens her views.

    Forget it.

    I saw the summary but I cannot find the list of 120 specifically named firearms that would become illegal, any help?

    No need to see the list just imagine all of your are on it.

    This is some of the problem is that the gun community is not unified. There are too many willing to give away the guns that they do not own or care to own. We all need to remember that this is a divide and conquer strategy just like they used for the last election. In case you don't remember that worked for them too.

    I think I agree. She's a lost cause. At best it won't change her mind, at worst it will harden her resolve. IMO, focus on the ones that AREN'T lost causes.

    Contacting your reps and senators is more important than contacting her.

    I have been posting stuff on her page the last two days, she seems to be one of few politicians that you can actually post stuff to, not just comment on something they posted. I haven't seen one anti posting their support on there. I know it won't change her mind at all, I don't expect it to. What might happen if everyone begins posting on her page, Obama's page, Reid's page, your own state politicians' pages and they get completely bombarded is that it may at least make a news story. Get the opposition out there, make the people left on the fence, or the ones that just fell on the wrong side think about their vote on this bill a little harder. The thing I like about posting stuff on their facebooks in addition to calls, emails, letters and faxes is the entire world sees it, not just their office.

    Post reasonable arguments, post facts, don't post things that make us look stupid or violent. Post a NO, post why you think its wrong, post the bill of rights. Email, call, bombard them with faxes, snail mail letters. Don't forget to reach out to the pro gun politicians, thank them for their continued support.

    Any message to Feinstein simply saying "NO" wouldn't change her opinion, but it might provide a message to those going to her page. It would have to have millions of NOs to be of benefit.

    Of greater benefit would be to go to every one of her colleagues' facebook pages and post a "NO to Diane Feinstein treating 200 million citizens as if we were criminally insane mass murderers!". Then to send the same message to their websites, emails, and offices. Every time we tell an elected official to support or not support a piece of proposed legislation we a better chance of getting them to do what we want done.

    Another approach would be to go to her page and tell her to wait for the Presidential commission to provide a coherent approach to dealing with the root cause of these mass murders instead of trying to advance her personal agenda over careful analysis and thoughtful consideration that the President is taking (yes, I understand that the President's commission may suggest an AWB, but if we can take the wind out of Feinstein's sails by pitting her against POTUS we can allow the American public's emotions, and attention, to be less of a factor).

    The anti-gun group tries present themselves to the public as the reasonable group and the pro-gun group as a bunch of "gun nuts". We need to make sure that we control our emotions and be the adults in these discussions. We must education the non-gun people that are on the side lines, so hopefully the next election will fix much of the problem.
