Last week I asked you to call your senators and tell them to vote against every element of President Barack Obama’s gun ban agenda.
Your calls are working! I’ve received numerous reports that NRA members are lighting up the phone lines and our senators are definitely hearing from us.
HOWEVER, now we need to take our phone campaign to the next level.
There are 20 U.S. senators, in particular, who hold the fate of your freedom in their hands.
These senators represent states where gun ownership is respected and our Second Amendment freedoms are revered.
But right now, they’re facing huge pressure from the gun ban lobby and Barack Obama to support Obama’s extreme gun control agenda!
So please, call each of the senators below and tell them to vote NO on any gun ban…NO on any magazine ban…NO on criminalizing private firearm transfers…and NO on any gun registration scheme.
Sen. Max Baucus 202-224-2651
