S&W Creates Convenient Way To Express Support For Gun Rights

February 13, 2013 by  

Gun manufacturer Smith & Wesson has joined Sturm, Ruger & Co.  in making it easy for citizens to contact the political class and remind them to stand up for the 2nd Amendment.

S&W has set up a Web page so that anyone can choose to either click on a link to send a prepared message to each of his representatives (the President, Vice President, U.S. Senators and Representative, Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Attorney General, State Senator and Representative) or select another link to find how to contact each one individually in order to send an original message.

The prepared message reads:

Dear (Recipient),

As a law-abiding citizen and a responsible gun owner, I am deeply saddened by the recent tragedies and I support efforts to curb violence in all forms. However, I do not support the efforts of Congress, the White House or any lawmaker who seeks to restrict my rights under the Second Amendment, or to impose new restrictions on me and other law-abiding firearm owners.

Rather, I support a comprehensive approach to preventing violence in our communities through a thorough evaluation of the challenges we face. That review must include the enforcement of existing laws, the need for heightened security approaches, and greater consideration on how to better manage the acutely mentally ill.

As a law-abiding citizen and a constituent, I ask that you represent me in these matters.

Sincerely,
(Your Contact Information)

Ruger prepared a similar page and message in January, as we reported here.

While momentum for a full gun ban along the lines of the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban is waning, the impetus for registration, background checks and a host of other gun control measures remains. While it might seem redundant to send a second message (if you followed through on Ruger’s site or have contacted your representatives yourself), now is not the time to relax. The political class needs to understand that gun owners are serious about preserving their gun rights.

      “, and greater consideration on how to better manage the acutely mentally ill.”

      ROFL… Great hero Ronald Reagan emptied the hospitals and gutted the mental health care field a couple of decades ago.

      Now the price is being paid.

        Yes, and you and your ilk keep electing these mentally ill persons to office. Stop blaming Reagan, Bush, et al for your errors at the ballot box!

      • Bill

        Robert,
        It is good that Reagan gutted the mental health industry. They are just a bunch of hacks that only know how to keep their patients on drugs. When they want to increase their cash flow they just invent another syndrome with new drugs to accompany it.

        Most mental health problems are caused by an imbalance of the body chemistry. A natural diet and a full detox will usually solve the problem

        If that’s true Robert, You’ve been on the run for a long time, Huh?

  • Steve E

    How can Congress make laws on mental illness when they, if fact, are mentally ill sociopaths?

  • GSoros

    I think it’s time to remove ALL laws that restrict the 2nd Amendment in any way. Putting your name on a government list as a gun owner, is beyond stupidity! The 2nd Amendment is your ‘concealed carry permit’. What’s the problem with law abiding citizens owning FA weapons? When ANY limits are put on the 2nd Amendment, you are setting a precident that it’s OK to chip away at the 2nd Amendment. The criminals and governments already have them. Those are the 2 groups that kill people. Why are they afraid of law abiding citizens or non-assault felons having them?

    Here is a great article:

    Folks when we loose our 2nd Amendment Rights, It will not be very long, when we loose a whole lot more. Our founding fathers put the 2nd Amendment in there for a reason. They had the foresight to do so to protect generations down the road. They knew that at some time there would be a Tryant in the Whitehouse. And they hit the nail on the head, because there is one there now. And he wants our guns in the worst way. Please do not let them take your guns. I would rather be COLD STONE DEAD than give up my guns.

    • Vicki

      Minor detail. We can not ever loose our 2nd Amendment rights. They were given to us by our Creator and not a piece of parchment. What could happen is the contract with government to PROTECT our right to keep and bear arms could be changed but the right itself continues.

      • http://aol CommonSense4America

        Absolutly correct! Then we will be deemed either a criminal or worse yet, a terrorist. If a terrorist then under the NDAA the government can incarcerate us without a trial or recourse.

    Why doesn’t a legally armed teacher (coach) protecting two female students from a couple of young thugs get national media coverage?

    It involved children, guns and schools. Surely this is newsworthy. Maybe it is not newsworthy because it was Detroit.

    • Vicki

      Not newsworthy because it does not support the anti-gun agenda

  • ibcamn

    You know it’s funny someone mentioned letting mentally ill people run the gov’t,didn’t a person sitting in a gov’t seat just recently get shot in the head,at close range!??!and if i remember right,this person(after a recovery time)was still allowed to sit in said seat and throw their weight around as if they have all their faculties??it clearly looked like,(to me)that this said person was still and will be for quit some time,mentally unstable!??!now if said person was,lets say me,would i be allowed to have a say in things and be considered to have my full faculties to do so!??!they(Obama and the henchmen)used that woman and no one cared!..oh well…..

    S&W,ive owned my 45cal for 20 years and god willing,i’ll die with it!(how ever that may be)
    S&W,you rock!

  • Robert Overby

    Shall not be infringed

    I wish the form letter said “as a supporter of second amendment rights” rather than “as a law abiding gun owner”. I don’t have a gun yet I believe our Bill of Rights give us our spirit, strenght and pride. When you give up these rights all is ruined.

  • Harold Lee Smith

    Lee 66 I went to the 2nd amendment rally in Nashville on 1/19 and we had about 1,000 show up, i couldn’t believe thats all that cared, went back on 2/8 we had about 100.
    No ORG. showed up to run the rally, we had one “great man” finally get up on the step of the pond and asked “What are we all here for,its because we care” he asked people from the crowd to get up and say whats on their minds, and we went on from there. If this is all that we Americans can show as our support of gun rights then we will fail. I’m a USMC vet 1963/1968 in Oct 1963 i took my Oath to defend our country and the constitution so help me GOD, i joined Oath keepers after the first rally to reaffirm my oath. And we wonder how berry obama got another 4 yrs, WAKE UP AMERICA!

    I strongly suggest you make use of the Smith & wesson, or Ruger site to let your representatives hear your support of our Right to keep & bear arms. Pop Vox also allows you to express your wishes to your reps on a wide field of subjects. Gentleman, we hang together, or we certainly shall hang separately. !
