URGENT CALL-TO-ACTION: SB766 - Range Protection Bill

Postby Charles L. Cotton » Sun May 15, 2011 6:32 pm

It's crunch time folks and we need everyone to respond!! SB766 is floundering in the House Calendars Committee even though it has no opposition. The problem is time is running out this session and SB766 just isn't viewed as a critical bill to make the final cut since so many bills are going to die when time runs out.

Please call and/or fax every member of the Calendars Committee, especially the Chairman, and Speaker Joe Straus. Tell them more and more ranges are in danger because of frivolous lawsuits that they cannot afford to defend. Most shooting ranges are either small businesses or clubs that do not have deep pockets to fight costly law suits.

Please call/fax starting Monday and keep it up until SB766 is put on the "Major House Calendar," not buried at the bottom of the House General Calendar that where it will never be reached. Call your friends and family and ask them to do likewise. We absolutely must have a large response to this call-to-action or SB766 will die because no one thinks it's important.

Thanks,
Chas.

Lucio needs a iii in there somewhere and I think James instead of Jim for Keffer.

Please call and/or fax! Emails often get buried and ignored.

Mr. Cotton,

I copied your original post into an email sent to 855 members of our range.

Hopefully, that will help generate enough calls to these legislators.

Charles,
I called everyone one on the list and sent an email to all my contacts encouraging them to do the same.
Let us know what needs to happen next!

Everyone needs to call Calendars Chairman Todd Hunter every day between now and Tuesday and respectfully but strongly state that SB766 is needed to protect ranges in Texas from frivolous lawsuits. Tell him also that it needs to be put on the State Major Calendar because you are aware that, if he puts it on the General Calendar, it's dead.

Tell him SB766 has been in Calendars since April 21st and it has no opposition.

Keep the calls coming folks; I can't say more at this time.
Chas.
