    Senator Toomey voted along with most of the Senate Democrats for the Universal Background Check.
    HERE IS THE ACTION YOU CAN TAKE:

    Write him at:
    502 Hart Senate Office Building
    Washington, DC 20510

    Call hm at: (202) 224-4254

    We run the risk of him turning into the next Arlen Specter.

    I've already let him know, I'm not happy with his position on UBC. I imagine the PA gun owners are burning up his phone and email. I know I have been.

    Senator Toomey was called out at the rally in Harrisburg last week by all the reps that attended. Between that and the calls, emails and letters that have hit him I think he MIGHT get the point but by all means keep the pressure up on him.

    Oh, his staffers know how I feel already, but this is a great idea, thanks!

    When I called before the vote I told his staffer I would contribute to his primary opposition if he voted to take away our rights. Now I'm waiting and watching to see if the state party or grassroots can put up a candidate this Texan can help out.

    Ironically, the media is reporting his approval numbers are "up" due to his support for UBC's.

    Who is telling the truth?

    Be Safe!

    Hmmm... in my inbox tonight:

    I guess it's too much to expect a politician to say, "Oh, wow, I get it now, I was wrong, sorry."

    Everyone is getting the same letter / email back from him. I think it's a pretty safe bet his has 'flipped' for good. The question is is there a viable candidate to run against him and win in the next primary and can that candidate then beat whomever the Democrats put up.

    I'm not saying I still support him, because I don't but most people I know are saying the next election might be 'the devil we know' type thing.

    Pennsylvania has the highest per-capita NRA membership of any state in the union. Toomey took a leadership role in pushing a gun control bill that was opposed by the NRA. If Toomey gets re-elected despite that, it is going to have massive implications for gun rights in Pennsylvania and likely even on the national level.

    You can bet that if politicians for statewide office in Pennsylvania get the impression you can hose the NRA like that and survive reelection, that is not going to be good for gun rights in PA. You guys will be on the CO and NJ train in short order.
