    Congressman, that is.

    We all love to beat our chests while shouting MOLON LABE at the top of our lungs, but short of direct confiscation, this energy gets us no where.

    So what does your Congressman have to say about the second amendment?

    Here's what mine had to say when I asked him about his thoughts on the
    second amendment, family protection, etc.

    I am fortunate enough to have a congressman who doesn't need to be reminded. I did go to one of his town hall meetings and he made himself very clear, and he hasn't deviated.

    In Utah, even our sole democrat rep (Matheson) is very pro-gun, to the point I would expect him to vote against the party when the time comes. (Although I would certainly feel better if he weren't a part of the majority in the first place.)

    I emailed mine about 2 months ago regarding forcing the DC city government to comply with Heller. I got a nice typewritten letter back a few weeks later stating he agreed with me and laying out his 2A views. I'm sure a lot of it was boilerplate, but I appreciated him (probably his staff, actually) taking the time to specifically address my concerns.

    In Montana we've got a governor and a junior senator who have been assured, as in, "he looked me in the eye and told me", that Obama wouldn't take their guns. I'm not so sure about mine though. :uhoh:

    An anti-gun politician's chances of getting elected in Montana is somewhere between slim and none, but when they wander off to DC they frequently need reminding about what they said and what's important to the folks back home. When anti-gun bills come up it's time to write, and also send them a thankyou for actually representing their constituents wishes and not that of their party bosses. :eek:

    Don't forget your state reps either.

    We've got some good ones here in Texas. Interestingly enough, there are a number of Democrats among them. Don't take my word for it though, the NRA gave a bunch of Texas Democrats outstanding to very good ratings.

    i write to my representatives all the time. unfortunately , the responses that i get back only offer lame excuses for the actions that they have taken, none of which are the wishes of the public:(

    See this is what I'm talking about. If we spent less time whining about the doom and gloom coming our way if Obama wins, and more time letting politicians know the consequences of trying to alter our second ammendment rights, then maybe they won't be taken away in the first place.
