Alert Us To And Attend Town Hall Meetings!

Sunday, June 29, 2003

Congress` Independence Day District Work Period is scheduled for June 30-July 4. During this time, your Senators and Representative will be back home in their respective states and districts. Many lawmakers use this time to hold town hall meetings, where they can report on what they`ve been doing in Washington, and take questions from their constituents. These meetings offer a tremendous opportunity for you to personally voice your strong support for the Senate reckless lawsuit prohibition bill (S. 659), and your staunch opposition to legislation that seeks to reauthorize and expand the 1994 Clinton gun ban (S. 1034 & H.R. 2038). Please contact your lawmakers` district offices and ask when they plan to hold their town hall meetings during the break. If you do not know the number for your lawmakers` district offices, you can use the "Write Your Representatives" tool at www.NRAILA.org, or call the NRA-ILA Grassroots Division at (800) 392-8683.

To find a Town Hall meeting in your area, go to http://www.nraila.org/calendar.asp

If you get a chance to meet with your lawmakers, be sure to:

  • Urge Your Senators To Cosponsor And Support S. 659 and to oppose S. 1034 which vastly expands the Clinton Gun Ban.

  • Encourage Your U.S. Representative to Oppose H.R. 2038, The House Bill To Expand The Clinton Gun Ban.

In addition to attending meetings and speaking out in support of our Right to Keep and Bear Arms, please forward the dates, times, and locations of any town hall meetings to your family, friends, and fellow firearm owners, and to the NRA-ILA Grassroots Division, so we may compile this information and share it with the pro-gun community. Please forward this information to the Grassroots Division by calling (800) 392-8683, by faxing to (703) 267-3918, or by sending an e-mail to townhall@nrahq.org.
