I live in MN which is a Democrat controlled state. We are a clear target in Obama's attempt to control firearms one state at a time. I have taken the time to individually e-mail each of my State representatives, both in and out of my district. Surprisingly, out of over one hundred e-mails, I have received reply's from well over 50% of them. Both pro and con. Interestingly enough, the Democrats seem to like to make everyone use a slightly more complicated form to get to them, but I did it anyway, and got few responses but at least I know they got them. What I have learned. Use a title in your e-mail that describes your position. Such as "No new useless firearm laws" They file e-mail by pro vs. con and many times never read any more than the title. Keep it short. One or two sentences is best. Let them know you are a voter as well as a firearm owner. Use every different e-mail address you, your wife, kids, or dog has. Quantity counts. Send one every other day. This part sounds hard but can be done on a mass mailing through at least two sites taking less than one minute per day. http://www.ruger.com/micros/advocacy/findYourRep.html http://www.nraila.org/get-involved-l...your-reps.aspx I prefer the NRA site because it lets you write your own note with your own title.
