Make Yourself Heard At Town Hall Meetings

Friday, May 25, 2007

Congress will be on its Memorial Day District Work Period next week.  During this time, your Senators and Representative will be back home in their states and districts. 

Many lawmakers use this time to hold town hall meetings, and take questions from their constituents.  These meetings offer a tremendous opportunity for you to personally voice your strong support for a number of pro-gun bills pending in Congress. 

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, please urge them to cosponsor and support the Tiahrt Amendment, a critically important provision in the Justice Department appropriations bills that protects the privacy rights of law-abiding gun owners, the safety of law enforcement officers, and the integrity of criminal investigations by preventing inappropriate release of confidential firearm trace data except in the course of a bona fide criminal investigation. 

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 [email protected].  Also, please take advantage of this recess to try and schedule personal meetings with your lawmakers and/or their staff in their district offices to discuss these issues.

For tips on effectively communicating at town hall meetings, please go to the “Write Your Representatives” feature at www.NRAILA.org, click Communication With Your Lawmakers,” and scroll to the bottom of the page.
