  •  Well if you don't call....you'll never find out: (0+ / 0-)

    I called Sen. Toomey's office and his voice mailbox was full, so I sent a detailed e-mail.

    I went to Sen. Casey's office and tried to send an e-mail,but strangely he doesn't offer an easy link to sending e-mails unless they are about specific sectors.  So I called and left a voice mail.

    I told them both I wanted:

    Ban on automatic weapons.
    Limits on magazine sizes and...
    Strong and detailed background checks on ALL weapons sales and denial of weapons to criminals and those with mental or social problems.

    Do I think this will have an effect....only if LOTS of Americans get really pissed about this and make their opinions known in a short period of time.

    It is one thing to know from polling that over 90% of Americans support background checks.  It is entirely another if all those 90% were to take two minutes and call or write their representatives and let them know that in person.

    Free markets would be a great idea, if markets were actually free.

      I used to call my critters all the time. And yet nothing changed. We need more effective means of pressuring them.
