If you don’t see your local rep on the list, contact them and urge them to continue to not support or co-sponsor this awful piece of legislation. If you do see your rep on the list, you’re probably from California – seriously, half the co-sponsors of that thing are from The People’s Republic.
It seems like the anti-gun faction in Congress is growing more and more bold, which means it’s time for all of you who voted for so-called “Blue Dog” democrats to call them and remind them that your support for them only goes so far as they don’t start signing onto crazy anti-gun legislation. Even if Republican’s numbers shrink in the ’08 Election, and god forbid we lose the Presidential race, we need to keep the pressure on the Democrat reps who ran on more “conservative” platforms.
