An Easy Way To Voice Your Concerns On New Gun Laws
PHOTOS.COM

Sturm, Ruger & Co., Inc. has made it easy for you to email your elected representatives in Washington, including the President and Vice President, and those in your State to voice your opposition to any new gun control laws.

The Ruger message is simple and to the point:

Dear (Recipient),

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.

Sincerely,
(Your Contact Information)

To send the message, click here. Look for the “Take Action Now” button near the top of the page. Clicking on it will take you to a page with instructions to continue filling out a form to send the message to your elected representatives. More than 600,000 people have already sent the message.

    Too many words. Keep it simple

    Tell them that

    ~300 MILLION Americans that they are supposed to represent DID NOT SHOOT ANYONE.

    Tell them to STOP PUNISHING THE INNOCENT.
    Tell them to STOP IT
    Tell them to STOP IT NOW

      This is not a reply to Vicki but a statement.
      I am concerned as to why this “Wolf In Sheeps Clothing” is not addressed as to what it is.
      The bottom line is to unarm the public. This is just one more step to dictatorship.
      If gun control is such concern how about cars. There are about 15,000 people killed annually in car accidents!!!!

        A few factoids: If they cared about saving lives, they would look into the more than 100,000 people killed every year in US hospitals by medication errors, In 42 recent shootings, the shooters were young men taking psychotropic drugs, including SSRIs. 35,000 people die in traffic accidents every year. The left wing-nut gun-controllers don’t care about guns, only about control.

        As I try to explain to people, the key word in the phrase “gun control” is not “gun,” it is “control.” ‘Nuff said.

        I wish that were enough but since that has been said for a long time in gun control discussions it isn’t enough cause they keep coming back with more laws to punish the innocent.

        Even the obvious truism that “guns don’t kill people, People kill people” hasn’t been enough. In fact even with video proof you will still hear anti-gun people tell you that “guns kill people”
        Here is the video btw. It’s really good.

    The 2nd Admendmend does NOT require registration with ANY government that will then know WHERE and WHO owns the guns they will first come to forceably confiscate. Agreeing to this is a travesty and the first incremental step of recinding this Right.

      The current proposals are not the first step. The first national law requiring the registration of (scary) firearms is the 1934 NFA.

  • laidbackrebel

    Who can take away an inalienable,(God given) right? No elected official has the authority, so no registration, or any so called gun law, can possibly be legal.

  • Bill

    Thanks, Bob
    Some good proactive advice

  • Steve E

    For all the momentum 2nd Amendment detractors seemed to have at their disposal with their politicization of the Sandy Hook tragedy, pro-gun Virginia legislators have proven very successful at shooting down multiple anti-gun measures already this year.
    Included in the defeated bills are the following:

    SB 785 – Would have made a gun owner liable if his gun was taken and misused.

    SB 1281 – Would have required “universal background checks” in Virginia.

    SB 1136/SB 1232 – Both would have required “universal background checks.”

    SB 1012 – To prohibit guns in the General Assembly except by legislators and police.

    SB 1148 – Ban on magazines holding more than 10 rounds.

    Another bill (SB 1001), aimed at ending the “gun show loophole,” was defeated as well. However, supporters may try to re-introduce it to the legislature, making it a bill Virginia gun owners need to keep an eye on.

    At least Virginia is on the right track.

    Noticed that all the shooters happen to be registered democrats or from families that are staunch democrats. Democrats are not democratic, they are socialist on slippry slope. SAD but true “The truth is easy to kill (news media) and a lie skillfully told is imortal (news media), Was it Ben Franklin who said “we must hang together or we will hang seperately”

  • JimH

    I sent my message, though I doubt it will have an impact with “little” Dick Durban.
    Or all the other D’s.

    • Vicki

      Since I live in California you can imagine what my representatives thought (assuming the staffer that first reads the comment even passed it on. )

      • JimH

        Hi Vicki, If Illinios could secede from the great state of Chicago(and their cemetaries) there would be some hope.(for needed change)

  • James Lightfoot

    A little history for those that do not want magazine limitations or another useless list of “banned” weapons by deriding us “gun nuts”, ” anarchist”, and my personal favorite “thinking that they need to defend themselves against the government”. The 2nd amendment was added to the Constitution and placed so high in the 10 Bill Of Rights as a direct result, prior to the American Revolution, the King George attempted. In response to the colonies complaining about the high tariffs that he wanted to place on goods, largely agricultural goods, that the colonies sold to countries other than England. King George specifically order a large detachment of British soldiers to come to the colonies to not only enforce the tariffs and to also DISARM / take all of the weapons from the colonist. The founding fathers, in an effort to prevent the federal government from over reaching its Constitutionally bounded restrictions by having the federal government literally fearful of an armed citizenry.

  • Max

    Thanks for what you do so well and this public service effort. All lovers of our American rights should petition their elected represenatives.

  • Kent

    Everyone please respond

  • Robert Ciammetti

    You dont band water if the glass tips over.The Conneticut incident was tragic and UNEXPECTED.You DO NOT punish the rest of the responiable Americans for some elses mistake.If that woman was not shot by her son…SHE should have bin put in jail for haveing wepons with a disturbed child residing in the SAME household.Back ground checks are there for a reason……..ENFORCE THEM.

  • paul willoughby

    YOU CANNOT LEGISLATE MORALITY. WITHOUT THE 2ND AMENDMENT WE COULD
    LOOSE ALL OTHER AMENDMENTS. 2ND AMENDMENTS RIGHT SHALL NOT BE
    INFRINGED.
