Popvox is a great site! Once your account is set up it's pretty much "auto pilot".

I encourage everyone to register and voice your opinion on the issues that matter to you...

PopVox rocks, even my 74 year old momma can use it...

PopVox is great for federal legislation, but is there anything that looks into proposed legislation for all states?

I use an app called "Open States" own my iDevices. Helpful in keeping track of bills and where they are at. Different than popvox, but very useful.

Open States looks good, but it doesn't appear to cover very many states.

can't figure something out

do I have to click the little boxes on the right hand side when I write comments ... in order to send the letter.

It's here HERE'S YOUR LETTER!

then little vetical links to facebook email etc do I have to fill that out, OR, just click " FINISHED" on the far right hand side.

Seems I do not get a confirmation of my message(s) being sent, but takes me to a comments section. I'm not into feel-good as much as verifying my letter went out?


Where do I verify my letter went out??

thanks!!

According to govtrack, all of the senate bills I've looked at (can't remember the list) have been upgraded to a 13% chance of making it through committee.

That's an above average chance (the average being 12%).

Not entirely surprising, but still not encouraging.

This week, the Senate Judiciary Committee will hold a markup on gun control legislation. They are considering the following bills: The Assault Weapons Ban (S 150); The Protecting Responsible Gun Sellers Act (S 374) and The School Safety Enhancements Act (S 146).

Congress needs to hear from their constituents on this issue at this critical time. Weigh in and POPVOX will deliver your letters to your Members of Congress -- guaranteed.

After the Easter Recess look for activity on these http://www.popvox.com/blog/2013/issu...irearms-113th/.

TheHighRoad exists to provide a higher grade of discussion than is found on some other gun forums so antis and undecideds can see that gun owners and RKBA advocates are not the reckless misanthropes they tell everyone we are. Personal attacks, group stereotyping, macho chest-thumping, and partisan hackery are low road and hurt all of us.
