Even as the nation was grieving the terrible loss of life in Parkland, Fla., gun control activists were doing what they do best: exploiting tragedy to advance their political agenda. Gun control activists are pushing a message that you are to blame for the criminal violence that took place last week. They’re attempting to capitalize on this tragedy to convince members of Congress and your state lawmakers to vote for their gun control wish list.
Proposals to ban the most popular rifles in America, arbitrarily limit magazine capacity, require a waiting period on all firearm sales, and restrict the right of law-abiding young adults to acquire rifles and shotguns have been suggested as “solutions” by those who wish to curtail the rights of law-abiding gun owners. Legislation encompassing these proposals could be voted on in the U.S. Congress or even your state legislature in the coming weeks.
That’s why it’s imperative that you contact your lawmakers today and ask them to oppose all gun control schemes that would only impact law-abiding gun owners.
COPY AND PASTE COMPOSITE LETTER
As a constituent, I am writing to express my strong opposition to any new gun control that would only impact law-abiding gun owners. Punishing law-abiding gun owners for the acts of criminals is flat out wrong and won’t solve any of the mental health and behavioral problems that we desperately need to do something about. Please stand strong in support of the Second Amendment and oppose all gun control schemes such as waiting periods, age restrictions to purchase firearms, gun bans, ammunition bans, bans on magazines, and other senseless legislation that would not have stopped this horrific event and won’t stop the next one.
Doing nothing is not an option, but doing something that won’t fix the problem and blames law-abiding gun owners shouldn’t be an option either. Please support and focus on legislation to protect our schools and our school communities, as well as fix our broken mental health system.
I look forward to your response and will consider your votes on these important issues the next time I vote at the polls. Thank you.

This is an example of why we often have limited trust in legislators. The title plays on emotion of the moment, trading on fear. PLEASE READ the proposed bill for yourself. Knowledge is power. This is not an attempt at an assault weapons ban, this is a semi automatic weapons ban and includes handguns, rifles and shotguns. Many of the same firearms everyday Americans currently own are on this list. We can never find common ground together when there is so much deceit and mistrust.
Please contact your legislators and tell them to VOTE NO on the Bill.
