I have not seen any threads on the topic?? I am from OC and my rep is a Republican, yet I am concerned in this urban area 2nd amendment issues may be compromised. So I have personally been calling and writing! Let's get our voices heard; put up a fuss. This AWB will be make or break in the House of Representatives.

I know we already have restrictions in CA, and we are going to get hammered with the Dem supermajority in Sacramento...nothing we can do about that. But let's stand up for fellow gun owners nationally- your local congressional representative could make a difference. Personalized letters and calls I believe can help on this very important issue.

Mr. Campbell-

I am writing to express my extreme concern for my 2nd Amendment rights. There is discussion among the President and Members of Congress for a ban on "Assault Weapons" and taking other measures to limit the types of firearms available to Americans today.

The 2nd Amendment was recently interpreted by the Supreme Court to extend to all firearms which are in common use for self defense. Semi-automatic rifles, incorrectly labeled by the media as "assault weapons" are clearly authorized by the 2nd Amendment, both in the SCOTUS's recent ruling in DC v. Heller as well as the idea that the Framers of the Constitution had that the American people retain their right to bear arms- not only for personal self defense, but in defense of a tyrannical government.

Mr. Campbell, I urge you to not support any legislation that restricts the types of firearms available to Americans. Specifically, any attempt to ban or limit semi-automatic rifles (incorrectly termed "assault weapons") or high capacity magazines would be a serious infringement upon the rights of law abiding citizens.

I am available to consult with you on this matter if you have any questions.

Sincerely,

wazdat

In my case I know the outcome, but I wrote anyway just to let them know where some of their constituents stand, which may at least lessen the degree of their support of any bans.
