"A source close to the Senate negotiations [says] that two senators who voted against the background check bill would vote for it after minor, superficial changes." - Lawrence O’Donnell on MSNBC, May 6, 2013
ACTION: Senators who voted pro-gun last month are under intense pressure - by Senate Democrats and Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s hit ads - to switch their votes. We need to keep applying the heat and let them know that gun owners are ready to help in any Senate campaign, no matter which state, to defeat ANY SENATOR who votes for gun control.
LEGISLATIVE UPDATE FROM WASHINGTON, DC. It’s not over yet. We can’t give up.
We won a dramatic victory last month. But the Left has not raised the white flag yet, and they are using out-of-state rabble rousers to harass Senators who voted against the Toomey-Schumer-Manchin national gun registry just a couple of weeks ago.
It is a national gun registry because the Obama administration is copying the names of gun purchasers from 4473's when it conducts its annual inspections of gun shops. If everyone has to have a 4473 when they buy a gun - even through most private sales - then everyone will be in the Obama administration's database.
Few things are more hypocritical than the spectacle of gun-grabbers whining that they don't support national gun registries -- just as they get off Air Force One on a trip from Hartford, Connecticut where they cheered the enactment of a state gun registry.
THE BULLYING IS CONTINUING. Senate Democrats are bullying the Senators who voted correctly on Toomey-Manchin-Schumer. Those who are under the most pressure to switch their votes are:
Mark Begich (202) 224-3004
Lisa Murkowski (202) 224-6665
Jeff Flake (202) 224-4521
Saxby Chambliss (202) 224-3521
Johnny Isakson (202) 224-3643
Max Baucus (202) 224-2651
Heidi Heitkamp (202) 224-2043
Kelly Ayotte (202) 224-3324
Dean Heller (202) 224-6244
Rob Portman (202) 224-3353
Lamar Alexander (202) 224-4944
Bob Corker (202) 224-3344
If your Senator is a Republican, or is mentioned in the list above, it is imperative that you contact them again!
Right now, there are several Public Policy Polling surveys that claim Senators who voted pro-gun have lost public support. It’s hogwash!
Gun owners can click here to read GOA’s analysis of why these PPP polls are fiction. These polls are nothing more than a ploy to sway weak-knee Senators into reversing their votes.
Some Senators are even beginning to wonder if they are going to be punished at the polls for voting pro-gun. And that’s why we need you right now to stay active and engaged in this fight.
CONTACT INFO: Contact your Senators, if possible, at 202-224-3121. Jam their phone lines. If it is not possible for you to call, then use the prewritten letter we have provided to e-mail them.
Tell them to vote against the expansion of background checks as they will allow for the registration of gun owners. And let them know that gun owners are ready to help in any Senate campaign, no matter which state, to defeat ANY SENATOR who votes for gun control.

"Gun Owners of America tells me that Senator Harry Reid, along with New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and other Senate Democrats, are pushing hard to resurrect gun control in the Senate.
And the media is now reporting that, by making "superficial" changes to the Toomey-Schumer-Manchin provisions, some Senators are being tempted to flip-flop and support gun control.
But don't be fooled! The Toomey-Schumer-Manchin provision is a national gun registry.
It is a national gun registry because the Obama administration is copying the names of gun purchasers from 4473's when it conducts its annual inspections of gun shops. If everyone has to have a 4473, everyone will be in the Obama administration's database.
Few things are more hypocritical than the spectacle of gun-grabbers whining that they don't support national gun registries just as they get off Air Force One on a trip from Hartford, Connecticut where they cheered enactment of a state gun registry.
The Second Amendment clearly states that our gun rights "shall not be infringed." And the Toomey-Schumer-Manchin background registration checks, even after "superficial" changes, would still remain as an infringement upon the rights of law-abiding Americans.
I am ready to help in any Senate campaign, no matter which state, to defeat ANY SENATOR who votes for gun control. So I hope that you will stand for the Second Amendment.
Please let me know what you intend to do."
Boy these punks in the federal regime are really fighting tooth ‘n nail for a back-door gun registry.
They must know war is coming.
Go to the link and fill in your info to send a prewritten email to your senators:
we should contact congress
They put a little lipstick on a pig, they pay a few bribes and some of these guys may fold.
It’s the Chicago way.
Once the gun registry is 100% in tact, arms will be confiscated. Next comes “Great Leap Forward” cleansing. These minions of Satan have no issues extinguishing their own unborn babies. The Conservative Killing Fields should be no problem for them to stomach.
The last time I used the GOA site to send a message to my Reps., I started getting a rash of SPAM emails - anyone else have that problem?
So the NRA and "We the People" have to work to change some other senator's minds the other way. My two senators are already commie/libs, so I won't even bother contacting them. I have in the past and all I get is a pansey-assed form letter in reply.
I get emails like that from every right of center website I’ve ever voiced on. World Net Daily and Newsmax come at my inbox like full auto fire.
the enemy is focus grouping for magic words.
