Tuesday’s Call-in Prescription

Today is our “Evacuation Special” as our town is literally on fire and we’ve relocated to a location with terrible internet access. Today’s post will be notable  for its lateness and weird format.

We’re asking people to make two important calls today! And then do some fun things.

#1. Pass a Clean Dream Act. 

Even if you’ve called on this before, do it again.

#2. Read “Kill the concealed carry for everyone!” for background. They’re voting on this in the House TOMORROW (Wednesday).

Using the same kind of reverse logic that results in a tax bill for the middle class that is actually harmful to them, the GOP has decided that overriding common-sense safety provisions of states run by grownups will make us safer.

This actually passed out of committee (*^?^**!!!) so ignore the references to talking just to committee members. Call your own Representative and both Senators, no matter how you imagine they’ll vote. Note that three Democrats openly support this bill, because they feel they have to to survive. Too bad.

Minimal Script: I’m calling from [zip code]  to express my opposition to (H.R. 38(for Reps),  S.446 (for Senators)

More Script if you want it: This bill would invalidate state-level concealed carry restrictions, make it difficult for law enforcement to verify whether a weapon is legally carried, and essentially allow permitless carry across the country. Continue reading “Tuesday’s Call-in Prescription”

Kill this “Concealed-Carry-for-Everyone” nonsense in committee. Before someone gets hurt.

Update (11/27): The House Judiciary Committee will debate and vote on HR 38 this Wednesday, November 30th. If it passes the committee, it will move on to a full floor vote.

This bill (H.R. 38), and the matching Senate bill (S.446), would allow people who carry concealed weapons in their home states to carry them into ANY OTHER STATE. In addition, these laws would allow gun owners to sue police for even attempting to verify the status of their permits, according to The Trace and Everytown for Gun Safety.

It would invalidate common-sense requirements that 39 states have for gun safety training, the bans that 30 states have against domestic abusers having gun permits, and the restrictions that 28 states have against convicted stalkers from having permits.

If these are your people…call them to  vote “NO” and kill this horror in committee.

Not your districts but know somebody else who lives there? Call them and ask them to call – TODAY!

Don’t know how to reach these congresspeople?: http://www.phoneyourrep.com
