I know all of the philosophical arguments, but it won't work. I don't want the most pro-gun Governor we've ever had pushing something like this and loosing the next election because his Democrat challenger points out the futility of such a bill.

Chas.
Mr. Cotton it may be an exersice in futility but we the people have to push back some how. I sent Senator Hutchinson correspondence on the upcoming awb and her response was less than hopeful. She supports the 2nd amendment but........There is no but if you support the 2nd in my opinion. I can't just leave it to the NRA, GAO et al. I'm just trying to be as proactive as possible.

Write and call your U.S. Congressman/woman. This is where the battle will rage. We need to make sure those Representatives know that we expect them to stand firm for our 2A rights because they will probably be taking flak from all sides. I've already written my rep. once and plan to do so many more times.

I was just about to ask about that. I suspected such is the case. I love the premise of standing our ground here in Texas, but in an effective manner.
