    With all the garbage going on we are encouraged to write letters to our representatives. The problem I am having is trying to write a decent letter without coming off as an angry high school kid.

    Would it be too much to ask of our more wise and veteran letter writers to post up some well written letters that the rest of us neanderthals can send to our own representatives?

    Thanks M-Cameron - I just copied that and tweaked it a bit to send to my Senator as well.

    I recall seeing a post with a standardized letter to send to our Senators on this forum, guess it wasn't a sticky because I don't see it now but it was a good one. I have one more Senator to address.

    Since I live in NY it is a waste of time contacting my senators.
    Hopefully the real America will speak up for me.

    you need to speak up for yourself!

    Who cares what your senators want, this is about what you want.

    I'm from MA, you think my senators are super gun friendly? No, they are not. They still got letter from me.

    Remember, all that is required for evil to flourish is for good men to do nothing.....

    Ain't it the truth. I was born and raised in NYC - after hearing my dad speak so fondly about his guns and growing up in the south I decided to moved out to Colorado about 3 years ago - and oh how I have seen the light.

    NYC has always been a place tough on guns, with that being said - I've had a gun pointed in my face three different times growing up there (I remember all three instances vividly), of course the gun was held by a lowlife and of course I wasn't allowed to have one myself. Out here it's an whole different story... that feeling of being a "victim" in certain situations is dead.

    UPDATE: Just read M-Camerons response.. he's 100% right.

    I say keep it short, chances are if it gets read at all it will be skimmed by some unpaid intern and a pro or con check will be placed on a roster. One paragraph is more than enough.
