Called and phone rang 2 times and a young man answered by the name of Nick. I asked if he was the representative that I would need to speak to concerning pending bills and other measures. He responded that he was and that I could inform him as to which bills and measures I had issues with.

I said the following Assembly Bills: 48 -169-180-231 and bill 711 I also stated that I currently believe that no additional Anti 2nd Amendment bills should be made and or passed.

Hope this helps and Please Cal Gunners it's important that you make yourself heard.

I know.
But we are not children, we are free men and women and our voice being heard even if ignored, is still a necessary step for what the future may hold.

I ask the aide the same question, same answer. I then ask the aide "how would you vote?" His answer was that "he hasn't read the bills"....

One would think out of curiosity, considering the number of calls...

Done. Takes 30 seconds if that - the guy answering the phone is very friendly and for my call he did not ask location. For those that have never made a call like this before, here's exactly what was said if you want to familiarize yourself with how this usually goes:
Quote:
Me: "Hi there, I'm calling to urge Senator Marty Block to oppose all anti-gun bills. Would you like me to specify which ones?"
Staffer: "Nope, I know them all. AB 231, 48, 169, 711, and 180?"
Me: "Yup those are the ones, thanks!"
Staffer: "I will certainly pass the message along. Thanks for your call."

Talked to a nice gentleman named Nick.

He knew the Bill #'s and that I was calling in opposition before I could get the words out.

hopefully we are making a difference.

I called again and they are still there answered phones

As always I asked to speak to a staffer about current gun and hunting bills to try to avoid the front desk.

It sounds like they are getting hammered with calls.

So grab your cell phone, your work phone, an empty desk work phone, your wife's cell phone and call.

They are definitely tracking callers, positions and called ID to eliminate dupes.
