WE'RE NOT DONE YET!!!  Over a thousand messages were sent to legislators asking them to oppose the anti-gun bills moving in the legislature.  We need to continue the push and let them know WE VOTE and we are asking them to OPPOSE these bills because they are flawed and unconstitutional.  Attached is a link to the NRA alert, where you can click on the TAKE ACTION button and letters will be sent on your behalf to your legislators.  You can email all representatives with This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and all senators at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .  You should ALSO email AND call your district legislator and let them hear your concerns.  We can do this, but WE MUST STAND TOGETHER!!!
