Done. The sad thing is, EVERY "representative" that my letter went to was a Democrat! What a list:

President Barack Obama (D), Vice President Joseph Biden (D), Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA), Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), Rep. John Garamendi (D-CA), Gov. Jerry Brown (D-CA), Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom (D-CA), Sen. Lois Wolk (D-CA), Asm. Jim Frazier (D-CA), Atty. General Kamala Harris (D-CA)

Many of us are in the same boat. Keep filling their mailboxes by getting the word out for others to use the Ruger site to contact their "Representatives".

Mine is just as bad.


President Barack Obama (D), Vice President Joseph Biden (D), Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA), Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), Rep. Brad Sherman (D-CA), Rep. Henry Waxman (D-CA), Gov. Jerry Brown (D-CA), Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom (D-CA), Sen. Fran Pavley (D-CA), Asm. Bob Blumenfield (D-CA), Atty. General Kamala Harris (D-CA).


I have received one response from Bob Blumenfield that basically asked me to resubmit my letter with my full address.

Once a day please. They don't read every letter but they do sort them by subject. Make the pile as big as we can!

I used the Ruger site, amd got the following replies:

"Thank you for contacting me. If you urgently need help, please call my district office at (626) 304-0110.

The concerns of my constituents are my greatest priority. My staff and I work diligently to ensure my constituents receive clear and thoughtful responses as quickly as possible. But since I receive several hundred messages a week, it can take time to sort, process, and respond to all of my mail.

I want to hear from you and each message makes a difference. Democracy works best when we stay in touch, so please visit chu.house.gov/signup to get e-mail updates on how I'm working for you."


and:

"Thank you for contacting me by e-mail. Letters and e-mail from Southern California are one of the best sources I have for new ideas and help me best understand what people in our area think about the important issues facing Congress.

If you did not already, please resend your message with your full address where you are registered to vote. This will help me better understand the wishes of my constituents, and it will enable me to respond to your concerns.

I also invite you to visit my web page at http://bradsherman.house.gov/. This web page is also a good source of information to find out about what is going on in Congress and the 27th District, as well as information about
visiting Washington, D.C.

Thank you,

Brad Sherman"


Sounds like they've got some kind of filter set up to block messages from Ruger, NRA, SAF,GOA, etc;

See also the powerful tools at Http://Firearmspolicy.org/take-action and Http://Firearmspolicy.org/the-issues, where you can not only connect with Congress, but their staff also.

I can't figure out why firearmspolicy.org thinks I am in the 22nd district, but the Ruger site (correctly) identifies my address as being in the 25th district. Is there a way to correct this?

I received the following from Assemblyman Brian W. Jones today. Finally, someone who is on our side:

Dear Echo6Cavedog,

Thank you for contacting me regarding your support for the Second Amendment; it is my pleasure to respond.

The evidence is clear - ANY LEGISLATION THAT SEEKS TO TAKE FIREARMS AWAY FROM UPSTANDING CITIZENS DOES NOT REDUCE CRIME. It is naive at best - and dangerous at its worst - to mistakenly assume that if the State of California were to outlaw guns from private ownership, our crime problems would disappear.

As you are no doubt aware, numerous bills have been introduced by liberal members of the Legislature to chip away at what I believe is a Constitutionally protected right, and I want you to be assured that not only will I vote NO on such legislation, but I will rise and speak in strong opposition. I believe it is imperative to stand and be heard on this vital matter, and in fact, authored AB 2615 last year to change California from a "may issue" state to "shall issue" when it comes to concealed weapons permits. Unfortunately - but not surprisingly, the bill died in its first hearing.

As a long time outdoor enthusiast and shooter, I will continue to support the interests of the Second Amendment community. To that end, I would like to invite you to my Third Annual Second Amendment Event to celebrate Constitution Week on September 21, 2013 from 1:00-4:00 PM at the Lemon Grove Rod & Gun Club, located at 16232 Sequan Truck Trail, Alpine, CA 91901.

For more information on the event, to view a video my floor speech against the infringement on Second Amendment rights, to sign up for my newsletter updates, or for other legislative information, please visit, www.asm.ca.gov/jones.

Sincerely,

Brian W. Jones
Assemblyman, 71st District

Do this DAILY! Just got a phone call from my local representatives office regarding my submissions, assuring me they were in favor of supporting gun owners' rights. THIS DOES WORK.
