A law enforcement contact sent me this link to Ruger’s “Take Action Now” page. It contains this boiler plate letter:
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.
You only need to fill in your contact information below the letter and click on the red “SUBMIT” button. It automatically determines your districts based upon your address and sends a copy to all your state and federal representatives.
The entire process takes less time than it took to read this Tattle, but the dividends are priceless.
