Vote On S. 397 Expected This Month,<BR>Contact Your Lawmakers While They Are Home!

Friday, July 1, 2005

Congress's "Independence Day District Work Period" is scheduled for July 4-July 8.   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 S. 397 and H.R. 800—the Senate and House versions of the "Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act," (which hopefully will be voted on by the Senate this month).  Please contact your lawmakers' Washington, D.C., and 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.
 
Once again, if you get a chance to meet with your lawmakers, please be sure to urge your Senators to cosponsor and support S. 397/H.R. 800. 

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.

Finally, it is imperative that you continue to contact your U.S. Senators and your U.S. Representative, both in their district and D.C. offices, and ask them to cosponsor and support S. 397 and H.R. 800—without any anti-gun amendments— and put a halt to these reckless lawsuits once and for all.  Again, please be sure to contact your lawmakers immediately and urge them to support this legislation.  And be sure to let them know that you consider any votes in support of anti-gun amendments to this legislation as votes against the bill itself.
 
You can find contact information for your elected officials by using the "Write Your Representatives" tool at www.NRAILA.org.  Or you can call your U.S. Senators and Representative in their D.C. offices at (202) 224-312 (Senate), or (202) 225-3121 (House).
