    I appreciate the threads in this forum and have followed up.
    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.

    I prefer the NRA site because it lets you write your own note with your own title.

    That's great keep up the good work!

    I've used those sites too, I actually prefer congress.org (links on the right to mass email your federal reps or state reps).

    Good job.

    Look at the non-RKBA websites like POPVOX and congress.org and email on each and every bill being proposed instead of using the broader NRA, Ruger, S&W sites. More work, but more focused and provides distinct individual emails on each piece of legislation.

    Great guidance hso - POPVOX is set up so you can send letters or email to each Representative or Senator for each bill being considered.
