Everyone is sending, faxing and emailing letters to DOJ. THIS IS AN ELECTION YEAR PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!! Do the same to the Governor also. Flood his office with letters also and make some people pay attention. Show them the first memo saying they were going to list and we would have the 90 day reg period. Tell them because of this memo you bought one, two, three, whatever you bought and tell them you want to be a LEGAL VOTING GUN OWNER. You would be surprised, they will respond.

Make your words count, if you limit who you send this to will limit what is done.

Just my opinion here:D

Since the Attorney General is a Constitutional Officer, and his agency has been tasked with regulating and enforcing these statutes, I really dont see the value in flooding his office with letters about this proposed action.

I think that targeted activism is key here.

I also must point out that I like the way you think and your enthusiasm.

I just disagree with the tactics.

I have it on very good authority that the Governors staff has been kept abreast of this issue all year, and have been concerned the whole time.

There are (believe it or not) really great people in the administration who not only care about, but understand this issue.

In a few weeks, if any of these bills pass, good or bad, the governors office will need to hear from us then, on something he can actually do;sign or veto legislation.

I would prefer to stay on message and stay on task. this is the crunch time.

Thats my two cents.

And your ideas have worked so well so far right? It takes an extra couple minutes out of your life to bug someone else that has the power to actually say what is going on with this and why is my office getting bothered, he also has that little power thing going that says this is an election year and maybe we can win some votes by doing something.

The other aspect is that any governor - and I know Arnold is this way - doesn't really pay attention until a bill gets to his desk.

Sometimes a governor will propose something, and twist arms to get it through; sometimes he will make it clear a bill will be DOA, so the legislature shouldn't waste its time. But gun bills have been in neither of those categories for as long as I can remember.

yep we need to send tons of letters concerning us when a bill is going to get to his desk. then and only then should we do so. for pending bills the same applies. we need to slam these people with letters to let them know were not asleep at the wheel. stay involved that is what need to do and that is what we are doing right now.

I can understand the desire to expand the list of communications and this may be an appropriate tact AFTER the DOJ meeting, but right now, all effort really should be focused LIKE A LASER on the DOJ.

It's a question of the limited TIME and amount of input gun-owners can generate - we have none to spare for side diversions. Every letter a gun-owner writes but doesn't send to DOJ is a bit of "worth-its-weight-in-gold" effort that could have been better utilized. That adds up.

I can promise you, if it was effective to lobby the governor right now, NRA would provide a contact tool and make that request. In reality, such efforts would not be as effective as zeroing in on DOJ, particularly since the AG and the governor ar in opposite sides of the aisle and both are elected positions.

After all, this is Lockyer's last year as AG - we need to give his replacement something to think about too.
