    Please help with this-- we are in a goal line defense right now, its a critical week and quite frankly, I'm overwhelmed at the power of the forces against us.

    Please use this information to easily contact your senators and cross-post this in other forums, where ever this will get a sympathetic view and actions.

    SENATE BILL 649: A bill to ensure that all individuals who should be prohibited from buying a firearm are listed in the national instant criminal background check system and require a background check for every firearm sale, and for other purposes.

    Please use MAIG auto calling link below and enter your information and phone number. The system will call you back, coach you on talking points and then connect you with your senator's office. This is pretty slick and I wish to heck the pro 2nd amendment folks had something like this.


    email from MAIG:
    Can you call your Senators right now and find out where they stand on gun reform?

    The Senate just returned from recess today. They've had two weeks to talk to their constituents, and now they're getting ready to vote.

    We need to find out where each and every Senator stands so we can keep the pressure on through the vote.

    Please make a quick call to your Senators and report back on their position.


    I strongly oppose S. 649: Safe Communities, Safe Schools Act of 2013 because this bill will:
    1) Act as a de facto national gun registration.
    2) Turn law-abiding citizens into criminals by the simple act of personally gifting a firearm.
    3) Do NOTHING to alleviate crime or keep firearms out of the hands of criminals as criminals will NOT subject themselves to background checks. Criminals do NOT obey the law.
    4) Do NOTHING to eliminate 'gun free zones'. The FACT is, save for one (the Gabrielle Giffords tragedy) ALL other mass shootings in 50+ years have been perpetrated IN gun free zones.
    5) Do NOTHING to allow "campus carry" and allow law-abiding citizens to defend themselves against an active shooter. Every sane individual agrees, "When seconds count, the Police are just minutes away".
    6) Do NOTHING to provide for properly trained and armed security at schools to protect America's children.
    8) Penalize, wrongly, States that do not choose to participate in the guidelines in the bill.
    I strongly urge ALL members of Congress to vote AGAINST S. 649.
    Thank you for your consideration.

    In MI, both Carl Levin (D) & Debbie Stabenow (D) support gun control. Levin even co-sponsored Feinstein's latest AWB bill. I call and write them all the time, but I know it makes no difference. I keep wishing we'd get a non-Democrat or pro-gun senator. Can't wait for Levin to retire and hope he gets replaced by someone who actually cares about the Constitution!

    So we can use MAIG's technology to oppose S 649? Cool, very cool!

    Yes! that's the point. I just wish we could get this in front of the NRA or GOA or NSSF's mailing list.
