Who should we email to tell about our opinions on the D.C. ban?

    Since the Courts are looking at whether D.C. should be allowed to have a handgun ban, I was wondering if there's any good places or email addresses to send our opinions to so that they know there are a lot of people out there who interpret the 2nd Amendment a certain way and that it's unfair to disarm victims? When others know that many believe a certain way, it often makes it sound more plausible. Is there a place to email the U.S. Supreme Court? What other organizations would be good? The ATF? D.C. city government? Various national news media? Fox News?

    What government agencies might be pressuring the Supreme Court into allowing D.C. government to roam free hurting whoever they so please by disarming?

    The United States Department of Justice- part of the Bush Administration.
    They have posited an individual Right To Keep and Bear Arms but briefed the Supreme Court that the importance of gun control is such that the DC ban on handguns and accessible defense firearms should be allowed to stand as a "reasonable restriction." *
    *I know it doesn't make sense. Not My Fault.

    What some of us have done is send e-mails to Bush and the DOJ. I would not be surprised if they do not actually open /read these communications but the do send a nice automatic response thanking you for your input.

    St. Louis, in the Don't Show Me state

    Don't e-mail the congresscritter types or the newspapers...

    Call or e-mail hotels and restaurants...

    "Hello - I've got to be in town for some business, and I'm wondering if they got rid of that gun ban thing yet - I sometimes travel with valuable items, and I really..."

    etc., etc., etc...

    MONEY talks, guys... And the rumor mill works.
