Stop "Organizing for Action"--Take Your Own Action This Month

Friday, August 9, 2013

Organizing for Action (OFA), an organization dedicated to promoting President Obama's agenda and policies (and whose website includes an Obama campaign logo and whose URL is https://my.barackobama.com/page/s/organizing-for-action) is in the midst of its "Action August"--an advocacy initiative that includes "national action days" focused on issues that will include gun control.

According to a Politico article, the thrust of OFA's initiative will be to confront legislators who oppose Obama's agenda while they're in their home districts during the congressional recess and try to get them to change their positions.  OFA's grassroots efforts will include appearances at town halls, phone banks, rallies and office visits, in an attempt to replicate the August 2009 tea party backlash Obama received and--they hope--draw local attention and coverage, and start mounting political pressure, ahead of the 2014 midterm elections.

Back in April, the Senate voted on, and rejected, the Obama Administration's gun control agenda.  Despite the claims of congressional anti-gun advocates, you know that banning private transfers of firearms, common semi-automatic rifles, and standard capacity magazines will not reduce crime or make our schools safer.  They know it, too, but they have an agenda.  Exploiting tragedy didn't get them all they wanted, so they press on, trying to pass more misguided laws and to build a case to take away our rights.  NRA will continue to stand firm in opposition to these new laws, and will continue to fight for our Second Amendment rights, but we need your help!

OFA has set Wednesday, August 21 as "Gun Control" day.  NRA members need to stand-up now and let their elected officials know they will not sit by and let the Constitution be trampled, nor will they be blamed for the insidious acts of criminals and lunatics. 

Please contact your elected officials now, and respectfully urge them to protect our constitutional right to keep and bear arms.  In addition to contacting your lawmakers' district offices, be sure to visit them as well on August 21 to let your voice be heard.  If you aren't able to personally visit, please be sure to call or write them.  Whatever you do, please act now!  Tell them to oppose any attacks on your Second Amendment rights.

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.  Or you can call your U.S. Senators and Representative in their D.C. offices at (202) 224-3121 (Senate), or (202) 225-3121 (House).
