Have you made use of the tool that Ruger is making available to send a message to elected representatives? If not, why not? It is quick, easy, and a way to build the numbers of pro-gun messages that our elected representatives are receiving. So far, over 688,000 messages have been sent in about a week. This needs to be more.
The link to their tool is here. Use it and then share it with friends, family, co-workers, and everyone else you know who is a gun owner or who believes in gun rights.
The message being sent is short, sweet, and to the point:
I am a law-abiding citizen and responsible gun owner.
I am saddened by the tragic events in Newtown, Connecticut, but I believe that efforts to impose new restrictions on me and other lawful and responsible owners like me are misguided. Did you know that violent crime with firearms has declined since the Federal "assault weapons ban" expired in 2004?
Your focus should be on strengthening mental health care and improving the quality of data supporting NICs checks (National Instant Criminal Background Check System). Do NOT pass more gun laws; instead, work to enforce the more than 20,000 gun laws already on the books.
I am your constituent and I vote. Please represent me.
