    congress.org's online letter engine provides a way for you to craft a single letter on the AWB issue that is then sent to all your elected officials at the Federal level. It provides guidance on how to craft an effective letter, an electronic template and even distributes it via email or allows you to print it off for mailing. http://www.congress.org/congressorg/mail/?alertid=61046526&type=ML&MC_targets=

    Unlike the whitehouse.gov petitions site that is being barraged with numerous petitions against changes in firearms regulations and policy that has a staffer from a White House that has shown they don't have to worry about being reelected the congress.org site allows you to spend the least amount of time sending individual emails to the people you put into office and who probably want to win their next election. You're their constituent and their job depends upon you and others like you either being asleep on watch or actively watching them and working for or against them.

    We have numerous examples of focused letters in the collected letters sticky to send to out elected officials so you can even copy/paste them into the text block of the congress.org template.

    Obviously I consider one to be nearly useless and the other to provide a good service to us and an opportunity to be more efficiently heard.

    Absolutely. The Senators and House Representatives are the ones making the decisions and the one's who need us to continue to vote them into office.

    Regardless of what happens we can't go back to thinking these gun control bills won't keep surfacing unless we actively support the politicians who stand up for us or their opponents if they won't stand up for us.

    Now is the time to stop any further gun control. Our forefathers had to fight and bleed and give their lives for this freedom, all we have to do is write a few letters and donate some disposable income.

    Another useful source of information is http://www.govtrack.us.

    It allows you to look at all legislation introduced and what committee it went to or search for a specific bill.

    It allows you to see who is on the committee and indicates the chair.
