    My opinion is that it's critical that we understand what's coming at us so that we can prepare intelligent responses and be able to write informed letters to our representatives. However, I haven't been able to find any information on proposed legislation, drafts, schedules, or even an agenda for the upcoming session.

    The legislature is scheduled to meet from February 3rd and finish up March 9th. Anyone been able to find anything?

    I believe this is the webpage to watch.

    With a short session, that's why the upcoming rally on the 19th is important. Close it down right at the start of the year.

    You can write non stop letters all year for NO MORE INFRINGEMENT ON THE 2nd AMENDMENT in various forms. Also Jeff Kruse watches for upcoming legislation and lets folks know too. Sub to his anr OFF emails.

    I appreciate the efforts on emails, I just think they don't do near as good as paper letters once did because some secretary is deleting them. I have read the responses to emails I have wrote and they are all canned responses and only a small fraction were answered......I quit writing them.

    I've had mixed responses from emails. Some of the senators have actually written replied themselves. Same with phone calls. I've been surprised and had the opportunity to speak with some of our legislators on the phone. All that I have received feedback from, have indicated that the emails, letters, and phone calls matter. Even if it's to some of the bat crap crazy antis' like Ginny Burdick, the staff typically keeps track of how many pro or con communiques they receive.

    Regardless of your location in the state, don't forget to write Senator Betsy Johnson (sen.betsyjohnson@state.or.us) and thank her for her support. She broke party lines last session and was instrumental in defeating some of the proposed legislation. I'm sure she'll be facing the political pay backs from the democrats this time around. With Bloomberg money coming into play, she'll need our support more than ever.

    This is worthy
    It is something that I started to do with supporting the Oregon Sheriffs that said no to this all a year ago. I got actual responses back for that so I feel at this point my efforts are better spent supporting the people that are standing up to all this instead of trying to make someone see my way when they never will or even care I exist.

    +1 on writing or contacting the sensible representatives and thanking them. I was lucky enough to have my representative take me up on my offer to go to the range. It never hurts to let them know what you want and never hurts to ask.

    NEVER NEVER QUIT WRITING THEM. They feel the jet wash.
    Regardless of how they respond.
    Send email, snail mails, call their local offices and their DC offices.
    The one letter you dont send could be the straw that broke their backs.
    Never Stop sending them.

    OFF is a great resource for upcoming legislation, OFF has many people all over the capital that keep them informed. I helped review some proposed bills OFF is helping write a few months back that are a step in the right direction and you can bet that the opposition is recycling the garbage from last year as well as some cookie cutter legislation from Nanny Bloomberg.

    Having worked a number of shows last year, I am amazed at the number of people that are less than willing to get involved in retaining their rights but will talk all day long about their "cold dead hands." Good on all of you for stepping up and letting your voices be heard, believe me your emails make a difference.

    You can subscribe to all legislative agendas and get them when they come up for scheduling.

    http://www.oregonlegislature.gov/

    Many come in PDF at the end of the alert emails.
    Sometimes in the Body.
