Senate Judiciary Committee composition

Here's the Senate Judiciary Committee member list that any AWB will go through before release to the full Senate for debate. Note the prominent Antis in the Committee. Antis are red and RKBA supporters are green.

Also note that Sessions and Graham are up for election in 2014 and should receive emails supporting their opposition to specific pieces of legislation. Frankin and Coons are up for reelection in 2014 as well and need constructive arguments sent to them on why there's no reason for any of the elements to the proposed Feinstein AWB legislation to pass and why there are 800,000 a year to oppose it. No crude or coarse letters since those will do more harm than good.

NRA give Leahy a C grade on RKBA and letters to him should focus on the cost to his party the last time an AWB was put in place. Point out that unlike then the grassroots are heavily electronic now and the soaring sales on ARs represent even more people that increase the risk for his party colleagues if the Senate and House members vote on an AWB with the upcoming 2014 elections.

Patrick J. Leahy
Chairman, D-Vermont

Dianne Feinstein

Chuck Grassley
Ranking Member, R-Iowa

Chuck Schumer
D-New York

Orrin G. Hatch

Dick Durbin

Jeff Sessions

Sheldon Whitehouse
D-Rhode Island

Lindsey Graham
R-South Carolina

Amy Klobuchar

John Cornyn

Al Franken

Michael S. Lee

Christopher A. Coons

Tom Coburn

Richard Blumenthal

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.

Any chance of making this a sticky? This is valuable info and not just for today.

I will start on letters to them tonight. That box of envelopes and roll of stamps was a good investment...

What can be communicated to the pro gun Senators to keep the bill from leaving committee? The offices for Lee and Hatch have confirmed they will not vote for the bill but is there anything we can ask them to do while it is still in committee?

OK. I can figure out why Leahy is purple, but why is Al Franken orange? What does that mean?
Liberty will not descend to a people. The people must raise themselves to Liberty.
-Emma Goldman

That the people have a right to bear arms for the defence of themselves and the State - and as standing armies in time of peace are dangerous to liberty, they ought not to be kept up; and that the military should be kept under strict subordination to and governed by the civil power.
-Article 16th, The Vermont Constitution

A quick question, why are all the Republicans RKBA and the Democrats anti RKBA? I thought being pro gun was not a Republican or Democrat thing, do you think someone forgot to tell these senators that?

I think someone forgot to tell the Democrat leadership that, personally.
I should be very much obliged if you would slip your revolver into your pocket. An Eley's # 2 is an excellent argument with gentlemen who can twist steel pokers into knots.

Germans who wish to use firearms should join the SS or the SA - ordinary citizens don't need guns, as their having guns doesn't serve the State.

You like to fire assault weapons? I have a place for you. It's not in the homes and streets of America. It's called the Army, and you can join any time! Wes Clark
