    Exclamation Make Your Views known

    Let's stick this here for a while. If you are aware of any active polls asking people about their feelings about guns, gun rights, potential bans, etc., please post them here so our members can go out there and give input.

    If you want to contact your national, state and local representatives, go to this Indiana state-sponsored database to enter your address to produce the results. I used it this morning and it's pretty good, but for some reason it enters the letters twice. So, just type normally and go back to remove the excess letters.

    I've included the address to a database in order to allow everyone to contact the correct officials.

    Also, I don't believe ArmedProgrammer would mind this, but he's generated a powerful letter that can be used to send to our legislators or you can come up with your own.

    INGO, there are a lot of people who do not post on INGO, but are watching what we have to say. They are watching our board, as well as Twitter and Face Book pages. That list includes politicians, three-letter organizations, anti-gun folks and voters. If you have a link to any positive actions taking place on our behalf, please post them here, so we can link them to the INGO Twitter and Face Book sites. So far we have sent out Guys's offer to train teachers and the "Open Letter" by ArmedProgrammer. I see Nucone has just posted a letter, as well. Let's get some of these massages in emails to our elected officials and not simply post them here to read and discuss.

    Let's not become complacent and lulled to sleep with all of the rhetoric that is being projected through the media. We must remain vigilant and keep the discussion going in a positive way. It will be better if we stay active instead of waiting to react to whatever the other side has in mind.

    A list of potential places to send letters to would be a good idea. I am sure I missed some. I had to querry search for them on the net. I expect many would not go to the trouble of that, but if a form letter could be set up with a place to enter the senders data and click send I am sure that would help. The tampon queen from indy has a link attached to her site that does just that. you enter your name, address, zip and it automatically sends it to the washington people it needs to go to and then to your reps in your zip. She cliped it from some anti gun site that was already set up and attached to her facebook page, Can that be done here pro gun and lock it at the top of the forum page ?

    Thanks for the link.

    Any ideas on what can be done to help defeat any type of AWB or additional gun laws is greatly appreciated. One starts by calling, writing and sending telegrams (assume better than an e-mail .. but not for sure so maybe add the e-mail also) to ones representatives. However, every assistance in wording of the messages, how often to contact (i.e. more than daily is probably counter productive and maybe weekly or when something changes is best) and probably most important how to get everyone else also making contact is a great help.

    Not opposed to finical support but again for a grass roots program who, what and where are always a questions.

    Always useful to have inputs from those that have worked in the political arena, PR and/or lobbying.

    Here's one from Andre Carson. It is VERY slanted the way it is set up, but it does leave room for your your own opinion. AND it allows you to email it to a friend. :-)I Want Your Thoughts on Gun Violence

    I have contacted my representitive, John Yarmuth (D) representing the Louisville KY area by email and by phone. I never get through on the phone, but I did get this reply from his office via email.

    "
    Thank you for contacting me to express your concerns about additional gun control measures in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School mass shooting. I appreciate hearing from you on this important matter, but respectfully disagree.



    As I have stated, I agree that Americans have the right to defend themselves and their property. I believe even more fiercely that I have the right, and every child has the right, to be safe from guns without carrying a gun. That gun, by the way, is statistically far more likely to result in the injury or death of someone close to me or them, than someone bent on doing harm. Moving forward from the terrible tragedy in Newtown, CT, we must have a discussion on where we draw the line between keeping our citizens as safe as possible and pro tecting the right to bear arms. Currently, I believe that line is not drawn enough toward guaranteeing the safety of our citizens.



    While we do not see eye-to-eye on this issue, I would welcome your advice and input as the debate on this topic evolves in the upcoming weeks and months. Thank you again for sharing your views. If you would like to learn more about my work in Washington and in Louisville, please visit my website at Congressman John Yarmuth : Home where you will find the latest news, my weekly schedule, video from hearings, and information about constituent services. You can sign up for my e-newsletter to receive periodic updates on important issues and services for your family. You can also follow me on Facebook and Twitter (@RepJohnYarmuth). "


    I expect now, with the increase in federal hitting people he is going to have a whole other set of issues to address but this answer is all the more reason to fight on. We must not surrender to this and we must make sure to hold people like this accountable in the next election cycle.

    Exclamation Groups With Polls

    Hello Everyone,

    There are several organizations dedicated to making our voices heard. Here is a list of a few.

    National Rifle Association
    National Association for Gun Rights
    Capitalism Institute
    RandPac
    The Tea Party

    Many of these and others can be found on Facebook. Capitalism Institute may sound like a Conservative organization however, they are truly all for capitalism free and equal. RandPac is Rand Paul own Political Action Committee I have done a lot of research into political situations recently and I find that Senator Paul(KY) is our greatest ally. He has consistently been the one Senator keeping Harry Reid on his toes. The Tea Party Is a very Conservative group, however I have found that their system of contacting elected officials works very well.
    There also always remains actually contacting your representatives personally. I have had success with this route as well. I have in fact received three letters from Senator Coats concerning issues I have contacted him on.
