View Full Version : Risk in Making Voice Heard?
I am beginning to e-mail, fax, mail, phone, etc., representatives and anti-gun groups about my opposition to ridiculous and ineffectual gun control laws. My question is do you think there is any risk to me, by identifying myself? By that I mean, my name becoming known to some potentially abusive government authority, where the next thing I know they are knocking on my door, exploring gun purchase records, etc. It is scary to think I even have a fear of such a thing from MY government!
I'm not that worried but it has occurred to me just recently that they could easily find out where I'm employed and make life difficult for my employer (kill a project by talking to the right politicians, etc.). They'd never have to say why, just that it's a bad fit or they've heard things.
Ehh...maybe that's even too paranoid.

:thumbsup: You have hit the head of the nail. Many millions of us fear the gubment the way you do Phil.
contacting public officials is a great idea and they won't come after you (assuming you don't make any threats.) I would be more worried that someone at work may find out and turn your work into a hostile environment, or even "turn you in" for some made up gun law violation.
Contacting the anti-gun groups is a waste and borders on a REALLY BAD idea. Do you really think that random antis contacting NRA is going to do anything?

I would make sure my taxes were in order.

It's a sad thing that many citizens are afraid of a government which is suposed to exist for their benefit

What the hell, I think you should say whatever you feel like saying. We all own/shoot guns because we're pro-choice when it comes to excercising our 2nd Amendment rights. Nothing says we can't diversify and excercise the others as well!

I have a larger fear of not making my voice heard.
