    Why don't we the members and mods write up a well detailed document explaining the facts and statistics, what we have accomplished as far as lowering crime rates and saving lives. Perhaps an online petition, that we could then send to all Senators and Congressmen. Maybe , just maybe, we could wake up the millions of Silent gun owners and let their feelings be known to these scum of the earth politicians.
    Obviously keeping quiet is not accomplishing anything, and the dozens of online polls other than the few legit organizations, some who ask for money are not all reputable. I propose a well written letter with evidence presented, and the consequences of many legislators losing their base if they vote against our 2A rights.
    I believe as mentioned that this "lame duck" president fully intends to sneak something through into law under the guise of some mumbo jumbo. and we wake up one day and have 30 days to hand in our semi auto hand and long guns. If any members are interested in drafting such a letter and "mods" also. as they as a rule are more in touch with what to say and how to say it. It would at least show that we care.
    Numbers talk, no one responds to a few people writing a letter, but if we got 25,000, or more, signatures, it would possibly show that this is not going down as easy as they may think, and there will be consequences for those legislators who believe otherwise.
    If anyone feels they can be of service, I would be willing to devote what time I have, to making the common man a bit more learned about gun laws and the danger of more Government interference in our constitutional rights. It's been too quiet, and something is going to occur soon it got pushed to the side with neither of these guys wanting to alienate any more voters, but now the clouds are overhead once again.
    God forbid we get another psyco on a rampage, I dread the thought. The Fiscal Cliff is upon us in a couple weeks and that can bring about ugly things. I don't want to get too far off course, it is about our guns, but please if you are interested or have a good idea, I am at your service in any way I can. PM or email works better than prolonging this thread.
    I just don't see gun enthusiasts handing over their collection to Govt agencys?
    Not when Guns have been such a large part of most of our lives.Weather it's tomorrow or two years from now, it can't be allowed to remain in question. Just my 2 cents, "adjusted for inflation"

    Prestigious research organizations and universities have tried showing the statistics to politicians since at least the 90's. A semi-anonymous forum won't budge the die hard ones.

    gym,

    It sounds like you are becoming a motivated gun owner. Thank you!

    In regards to your suggestion to a on-line petition as pointed out by Ehtereon11B that has done many times.

    There is a saying that all politics are local. It is more effective if you, your friends, fellow gun club members write individual letters to your Congressmen. Most politicians want to get reelected and will pay attention to what the voters in their district are thinking. Email makes letter writing easy these days.

    “I believe as mentioned that this "lame duck" president fully intends to sneak something through into law under the guise of some mumbo jumbo. and we wake up one day and have 30 days to hand in our semi auto hand and long guns.”

    Knowledge is power. That is why tyrants and dictators prevent the masses from becoming educated. The more you know and better understand how our political system works the more dangerous you are to those who political agenda is different than yours. I would like to suggest you take a U.S. Government course at a local Community College to get a better understanding of how the system works.

    “Numbers talk, no one responds to a few people writing a letter, but if we got 25,000, or more, signatures, it would possibly show that this is not going down as easy as they may think, and there will be consequences for those legislators who believe otherwise.”

    You are right. Numbers DO talk. Are you a member of the NRA?

    Actually the article in the Atlantic still talks about reducing "gun violence", which tells me the author still somewhat connects the tool to the act.
