    Sent an email to Joe Barton last week about losing my vote if he votes for second amendment restrictions.

    Doesn't sound near as weaselly as the response I got from my representative. Pretty straight forward and he didn't use the hated code phrase 'common sense' once.

    "Doesn't sound near as weaselly as the response I got from my representative."

    I live in California, and my politicians are *never* weaselly when I write them a pro-gun letter. They tell me, most directly, that I can go #$%@ myself. I *dream* of getting letters like the OP's from a California politician.

    Form Letter FTW!

    Question is - do you get the same form letter if you write an ANTI 2nd comment?

    I have to ask I know I should write my house reps (they sway every now and then) but is there a point in me writing my Senator? it's Carl Levin.

    My Congressman responded in much the same way. His name is Jim Matheson, and he is one of very few pro-gun democrats. Actually, he is one of very few democrats that are actually worth voting for.

    I'll pray for you. My father lives in CA, and I pray for him too.

    Support any and all pro second amendment legislators you have, both Reps and Dems.

    You should see the crap I receive back from my own two Senators ... Dick Durbin and (now president-elect) Barack Obama. Egads.

    Be advised that all of these Reps and Senators have letters ready to mail for each side of every possible issue you can contact them about. I have seen them. They got where they are by telling everybody what they wanted to hear.

    "They got where they are by telling everybody what they wanted to hear."

    Some did, no doubt, but I'm here to tell you that if you send a pro-gun letter to Dianne Feinstein, she'll write back and tell you to go fly a kite.

    If you live in California (or even if you don't!) please join the California Rifle and Pistol Association:

    Be sure to join your state association *wherever* you live.
