Alert Us To And Attend Town Hall Meetings

Sunday, April 4, 2004

Congress is currently on its Spring District Work Period until April 16. 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 afford you an opportunity to personally voice your strong support for the District of Columbia Personal Protection Act (bills S. 1414 and H.R. 3193)—legislation seeking to restore the constitutionally-guaranteed Second Amendment rights of the residents of the District of Columbia—and your staunch opposition to legislation that seeks to reenact or expand the 1994 Clinton gun ban (S. 1034, S. 1431, H.R. 2038, and H.R. 3831). 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.

If you get a chance to meet with your lawmakers, we once again urge you to:

Ask your senators to cosponsor and support S. 1414, and to oppose S. 1034 and S. 1431. Encourage your U.S. Representative to support H.R. 3193 and to oppose H.R. 2038.

In addition to attending town hall 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. Also, please take advantage of this recess to try and schedule personal meetingswith your lawmakers and/or their staffs in their district offices to discuss these issues.

For a current list of these meetings, please visit the "Event Calendar."
