I guess it would be a waste calling our senators asking them to SUPPORT these amendments

Two harmful amendments were introduced yesterday in the U.S. Senate that would weaken federal gun laws and gun laws in our nation's capital. They were offered on a bill that would give voting rights to Washington, D.C. Please act today to help us stop these dangerous amendments.

PLEASE CALL YOUR U.S. SENATORS TODAY
Sen. Dianne Feinstein - (202) 224-3841
Sen. Barbara Boxer - (202) 224-3553

Urge Your Senators to "Oppose any amendments to the D.C. House Voting Rights Act that would weaken federal gun laws or gun laws in our nation's capital."
Senator Thune (SD) introduced an amendment that would force states to allow carrying of concealed guns even by dangerous people barred by state law from possessing a gun. And Senator Ensign (NV) introduced an amendment that would repeal D.C. gun laws and threaten homeland security. Both of these amendments would endanger public safety, and we must urge our Senators to reject them.

Please call your Senators today as soon as possible and forward this email to friends. The Senate needs to hear from people who support sensible gun laws today!

Thanks for all you do to prevent gun violence and thanks in advance for making these two phone calls today.
