Senator Feinstein,
I urge you; please take decisive and bold action regarding the senseless killing that is happening in our nation. Please pass legislation that will keep our innocent children and all defenseless Americans safe from the senseless gun violence that is taking place. Please introduce legislation that will allow all Americans who are eligible to purchase and carry concealed weapons to be able to quickly neutralize these homicidal threats, and protect our children.
Additionally since an effective and reliable defensive weapon is priced well above the budget of most middle class Americans, I propose that a government subsidy be offered so those most at risk, those forced to live in low income areas can afford the basic human RIGHT to be able to defend themselves against predators. Additional a subsidy should be offered to provide effective training such what is offered at places like Frontsight, Thunder Ranch, Gunsite and others.

Thank you for your time and effort in this important civil rights issue.


Very Respectfully,
Richard Lindsey

When you get your response see if it matches this:

Dear Gun Nut:



Thank you for contacting me to share your opposition to gun control. I respect your opinion on this issue, and I welcome the opportunity to provide my point of view.



I recognize that there are many law-abiding gun owners who use their weapons for activities such as hunting, sport, or self-defense in a safe manner, and I support an individual's Second Amendment right to own a gun.



At the same time, the problem of gun violence in this country is a serious one. The assault weapon attack on four children and an adult at a Jewish Community Center in Los Angeles in 1999, the school shooting at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado, the tragedies at Virginia Tech and Northern Illinois Universities, and the recent shooting in Tucson, Arizona, in which Representative Gabrielle Giffords was injured and six others were killed, are all examples of the tragic results of gun violence. To prevent such senseless acts of violence, I believe we need reasonable measures to keep guns out of the hands of criminals, unsupervised children, and the mentally deranged.



I appreciate hearing from you and will be mindful of your thoughts as the debate on gun control continues. Once again, thank you for your letter. I hope you will continue to keep me informed on issues of importance to you. If you have any additional comments or questions, please do not hesitate to contact my Washington, D.C. office at (202) 224-3841.




Sincerely yours,

Nice to see no wasted resources were used in crafting any personal response to any concerned Ca. citizen.

I get the same canned reply every time I write to her to voice my concern.

Funny thing is she is supposed to be the voice of the people, trouble is she is her own voice with her own agenda.

Glad to hear others are trying too, I'd be shocked if she drastically changed her tune but if we don't let her know how we feel there is no chance of it happening. I wrote her a letter late last week letting her know how I thought the AWB and High cap "clips" line of thought was wasteful of legislator time and we should be looking at other things and listed several ideas I thought where worthwhile, none of which had anything to do with gun control.

Feinstein is hellbent for leather to impose her view on millions and milllions of gun owners. She is single minded in that. No logic and common sense. I know when it comes down to it she will not get all she wants but even one thing is too much. Writing her is an excercise in futility but I will continue to do so.

I wrote her as well right after the election I actually received a response from her or a staff member. My letter was very similar to yours. She said no dice.

I wrote her a second time right after her announcement that she was going to solve the problem in the US buy taking away our guns. I told her the answer is to deal with the mentally ill. Not create more laws for the citizens that are law abiding people. I closed it by saying that she should relinquish her CCW along with all her firearms to set an example. Needless to say I never received a response from her.

Our only hope is she will die from natural causes soon. She is 79 years old she can't live forever.

Dianne Feinstein doesn't give a sh*t about any of us. She's harvesting us for personal profit. It's our duty to find any dirt about her (or any politician) and expose it to get rid of her. Freedom comes with responsibility.

On the day the new Congress convened this year, Sen. Dianne Feinstein introduced legislation to route $25 billion in taxpayer money to a government agency that had just awarded her husband’s real estate firm a lucrative contract to sell foreclosed properties at compensation rates higher than the industry norms.

Here's mine (Forgot to take out the part where I didn't vote for her):

Dear Senator Feinstein,

I'm writing to voice my concerns regarding the proposed laws to ban semi-automatic rifles. Although they are being termed 'Assault Weapons' bans, the fact of the matter is that the semi-automatic rifles that are being proposed for the ban are not assault weapons, nor are they weapons of war. As a Democratic voter, this is the first time voting that I feel as if I voted for the wrong people (with the exception of Dianne Feinstein for whom I didn't vote.) As a constituent, banning semi-automatic rifles or regular capacity magazines is not something I would have wanted. And I definitely don't think that using the recent tragedy of Sandy Hook to push an anti-gun agenda is how I want my voice to be heard.

There's somewhat of a hypocrisy with the ban of 30 round magazines for rifles or 17 round magazines for handguns. If 10 round magazines were enough to protect one's self from harm, shouldn't secret service limit themselves to 10 round magazines? Wouldn't it be just as safe to limit law enforcement to 10 round magazines? I understand that some may argue that everyday citizens shouldn't have to protect themselves from the threats that police face because the police are there to protect them. That's an argument made from someone who lives in a place where they can rely on the police to answer a 911 call in enough time to prevent the crime from happening. Or made from folks who have their own security detail and don't remember or have never lived in an area where the police always come too late.

I understand that California is already a 10 round magazine state. That doesn't make me feel any safer. What I understand is that I myself as a lawful handgun owner am limited
to 10 rounds but the felon passing me on the street who doesn't care about the law may have 17 rounds or more in his or her handgun.

Finally, the idea that you can appease the owners of semi-automatic rifles by offering to compensate them with a couple hundred dollars is only understood as viable by those
that have never owned or familiarized themselves with one. In fact, the arguments against the various 'evil features' of a rifle and the terms military-style and weapons of war indicate an distinct ignorance of weapon systems in general. What makes an AR15 a military-style rifle? The shape? Am I to understand the shape of the rifle in some way makes it deadlier than any other semi-automatic rifle out there? It's certainly not the capability to fire more than a single run per pull of the trigger. That's already regulated
by the government and for most civilians beyond their reach.

I'm saddened and disappointed by the political party which I had thought to be my own... But I am also a proud gun owner who feels like his party and many who have jumped on the gun ban bandwagon (And the re-emerging video game causes violence bandwagon) do not represent me or the many gun owners that number as their constituents.

I understand now that my vote and my money is better spent elsewhere. I do not want to be a single-issue voter. But the extremes that the anti-gun legislators are proposing
force me to become one. My money is better spent going to the NRA or the Calguns Foundation than it is to the people whom I elected into office. I'm disappointed that it's
come to putting forth effort to stop unjust and frankly unconstitutional legislation, effort better spent elsewhere.

I do believe that there is room for discussion in gun control. I do feel like there are definitely places where laws need to be shored up and where we can do better in keeping our country safe. I don't believe banning semi-automatic rifles or regular capacity magazines is the answer. This is definitely not how I want my voice to be heard and our congress persons and senators need to understand that those that support those views will receive neither the votes nor support of myself and the millions of firearms owners both in California and country-wide.

As long as she will have something to suck from us that parasite will remain in power. She'll do, say and preach anything that will keep her in power. Someone needs to document her every move to build up a paper trail which will be used to expose and officially get rid of her.

R ecent published reports about our richest Congresspersons include California Senator Dianne Feinstein near the top of the list. Her estimated net worth– a whopping $46 million to $108 million. Nice . . . very, very nice . . . for her anyway. But where did this wealth come from? Putting the same question another way, how did a long–sitting United States Senator get so rich? Tracing the sources of wealth for a well known politican seems like fodder for a mystery novel, but in fact the real world answers where Ms. Feinstein are concerned aren’t hard to locate at all. Readily available evidence about Dianne Feinstein’s wealth creation can be found in her financial disclosure reports filed with the Office of Public Records of the United States Senate, and in a variety of investigative reports and analyses that have been published over the years and can still be viewed today through a search of the Internet. All that’s needed is for one to simply take the time to look, and pull the pieces of her life history together as a coherent whole.

Dianne Feinstein,
"I do solemnly swear that I will support the Constitution of the United States." Do these words look familiar? Based on your stance on key issues I would say that you do not believe these words that you are sworn to uphold. Backing any new legislation for restrictions on law abiding citizens is a direct violation of this oath. The constitution is very clear that “the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”
Do the right thing and support the current laws that are being ignored by criminals.

You guys didn't hear? a few years ago she had an experimental tightning knob installed under her scalp and she could give a few twists to tighten things up. Worked for awhile but then she had huge bags under her eyes that no amount of tightening would fix.

So she went in to the doc and told him the problem, and he said "well first off those are not bags under your eyes, those are your breasts"

SGO: I think you're on the right track here. We must expose her for what she is. Additionally, the " drive " to introduce harmful legislation must be extinguished. Even if we expose her and kill the bill there will always be someone lurking in the shadows that will try the same thing.

How does a citizen go about trying to remove a senator or at least get them censured?

If your state has a Recall provision in its Constitution (like California) you can can institute a petition for that. The best you can get with that, of course, is the two senators from your state. It's difficult but, if you have enough support, you can get it on the ballot and vote the (bleep) out.

On the national level you can try to get the House of Representatives to impeach a Senator if you can make a case for High Crimes and Misdemeanors. Or try to get the Senate itself to censure him or her for misconduct.

Sample letter:

Senator Dianne Feinstein,

If you don't like the Second Amendment, repeal it. If you don't understand the Second Amendment read it. If you can't understand that the Second Amendment is meant to prevent individual's enslavement to government then re-read constitutional history. If you think your power is greater than the people who (unfortunately) elected you then you must resign.

The People will not be bound into slavery by the politicians they elect. We will and must abolish or replace any government that is destructive of the ends for which it was created.

The Second Amendment is as important and relevant today as the entire Bill of Rights. The musket has been replaced by the AR15 and all other semi-auto small arms in the role that was original conceived by the people.

Sincerely,

Does anybody really think the intended recipient actually reads your letter?
More likely a staff member reads it and pushes a button that sends back a standard canned reply.

The anti-gun politicians are well known, they ain't gonna change...only the ballot box can rid us of them and, in this state, it ain't gonna happen any time soon.

Here is my letter to DiFi. Feel free to use as your own after modifying to fit your situation. I struck some parts out, but left them here so you readers can get the gist of my letter.

Dear Ms. Feinstein,

I am not a politician. I am not a former U.S. Marine. I don't even own firearms. Who I am is a voting, law-abiding, naturalized citizen of the great United States of America.

And I agree that banning firearms can be a good thing. Firearms are, in itself, a form of evil. They are weapons of destruction. Firearms were made with one thing in mind -- that is death. But death to whom? The law-abiding citizen or to an attacker? Studies can be done to skew towards one argument or the other -- we all know that -- the various disagreeing studies on the effects of firearms studies prove that. But the Assault Weapons Ban you are planning is just purely wrong. Please let me expound.

Sit a hungry man down in a nice steak house and give him a plate with a big, juicy steak. But ban his knife. Yes, knives can injure and kill people. So let us ban his knife. Be it known that no matter how hungry, any proper gentleman would think TWICE and observe the other diners before grabbing that steak with his hands and gnawing away at the steak. Then there are those who care less of other's opinions would immediately dig into the steak with his fingers. The Adam Lanza's of the world are the people who would dig into the steak with his bear hands. Firearms bans do nothing to the Adam Lanza's. That is the truth, regardless of what statistics show.

When I came to this country, I cherished the freedoms this country was founded upon -- one of them protects the very tool that gave this country its freedom -- the right to bear arms. I became a naturalized citizen only to realize how eroded my promised freedoms have become in the hands of agenda-based politicians like you. Recently, I have become most concerned about my freedoms, especially my right to bear arms being infringed upon. I want to be able to own any firearm I choose; I want my children's children to be able to own any firearm they choose. Not just for hunting or sporting purposes, but for the very reason why you conceal-carry a weapon of death -- for self-protection.

Don't throw away one of my freedoms by passing an Assault Weapons Ban that will do absolutely nothing to stop the hungry man from his steak. Your Ban isn't about my children's safety -- it never was. Let me protect my own children -- leave my arms where they belong -- on me.

Thank you,

<Signature>

If you guys are writing letters to your politicians, know this: Letters need to be concise and to the point. You don't need to write a narrative on the background. You can assume background. Just tell them your thoughts, your opinions, how it affects you.

Here is my letter to Jerry McNerney. The letters posted are almost always too long. Remember, you've got 1-6 interns reading these. They don't do anything more than scan and sort. If they can't figure out what you want in about 10 seconds, they toss it. The letter above talking about guns as a form of evil would be tossed into the SUPPORT gun control bin.

To be effective you need to:

1) state your position clearly and BE BRIEF
2) make it appear that you are a swing voter and a financial donor
3) let them know you are a one issue voter and will only be able to support candidates who take your position on this issue.

Dear Representative McNerney,

I am writing to you to express my OPPOSITION to any recent proposal of new gun control legislation. I am a registered independent in California and a very active voter and financial donor in our district. I sincerely, respectfully and with the greatest emphasis as you to OPPOSE ANY NEW GUN CONTROL LAWS. I am a one issue voter and will not be able to vote for anyone who supports further national gun control in the 2014 election. I will also actively support the political opponent of those who vote for gun control legislation with my vote and financial assistance. While I hope this proves unnecessary and I can offer you my support, I will be watching the outcome of the current situation closely.

Thank you.

Scobun

How does a citizen go about trying to remove a senator or at least get them censured?

If your state has a Recall provision in its Constitution (like California) you can can institute a petition for that. The best you can get with that, of course, is the two senators from your state. It's difficult but, if you have enough support, you can get it on the ballot and vote the (bleep) out.

On the national level you can try to get the House of Representatives to impeach a Senator if you can make a case for High Crimes and Misdemeanors. Or try to get the Senate itself to censure him or her for misconduct.

There's a petition.

I find it more responsive to write my local reps. I even got some non-canned responses when I talk about 2A rights as all the local reps are very conservative here. I won't even bother writing DiFi. That's just a waste of time since she's on a personal crusade no matter what we say. She can introduce all the legislation she wants. If the majority doesn't vote for it, it dies right there.

True to that. It's not like our letters, if read, are actually going to convince our politicians one way or the other. They use it, if they use it, like a poll only. One bin or the other.

I wrote my sample letter above as a rant mostly.

Any letter to Dianne Feinstein is a waste of time, effort

And a complete exercise in frustration.

Why?

Because she doesn't care about the 2A, what we think, or anything else.

She doesn't have to

She has been entrenched in the Senate for 20 years

Runs virtually unopposed, and gets over 60% of the vote

She has Carte Blanche to do whatever she pleases

The choices are, live with it, wait until she retires, or move

Personally, I wouldn't waste the ink on her, or give her the satisfaction of her knowing that she's a burr under my saddle.

And that would go for Boxer and Pelosi as well.

Happy New Year

To prevent such senseless acts of violence, I believe we need reasonable measures to keep guns out of the hands of criminals, unsupervised children, and the mentally deranged.


Funny, I am not, have never been, and very likely will never be any of the above categories of people you wish to keep from access to guns. However your legislation completely strips me of my constitutional rights.

Gun control isn't about controlling the guns, it's about controlling the people.

Come to think of it, I probably was an "unsupervised child" at some point in my life...

EDIT: The suggestions to "write her a letter" are hilarious. Maybe the Jews should have written Hitler a sternly worded letter expressing their displeasure with Auschwitz. These kind of suggestions are why our country is in the current state to begin with.

Yes.

I wonder why we don't introduce a bill to investigate how the Senator is alleged doing sweetheart real estate deals for her husband.
