Federal bills S. 374 and S. 649 - Time to fight

The federal bills S. 374 and S. 649 Universal Background Check bills are coming up for a vote, and we need to make sure that we have the 40 nay votes necessary to maintain a filibuster.

Yes yes I know most of us have F rated Senators. However, you can still call, fax, and write a letter to the senators who don't have F ratings from the NRA, and encourage them to support the filibuster and vote against any advancement of the bill.

If you like Nutnfancy, watch. If you don't like him, skip to the next section.

Here is all of the senators, their ratings, and theif phone/fax numbers:

You can sort the list however you want. I have it sorted by NRA rating.

Here is a list of their websites if you want those:
U.S. Senate Contact Information | Congressional Listings, Phone Numbers, Addresses, 113th Congress

Here is a sample letter specifically for these bills:

I'm going to modify it myself, and cut it down a bit.

Personally I like to fax senators because I'm lazy. I just hook up my old laptop with the 56k modem to the my phone line, paste in all 100 senator's numbers and let the machine send out 100 faxes automatically. Windows fax works great for that (Win XP and Win 7).

I also make a few phone calls on my Google account with Google Voice. It's free anywhere in the US.

https://www.google.com/voice

Just sign in to your gmail, click the phone icon on the left, paste in a number and call. Be sure to test your computer mic before you make calls.

Pass the info around. Get people calling/faxing. Contact the Senators who have good ratings and tell them to support the filibuster! It only helps. Now is the time.

Our senators in OR are Wyden and Merkley. They are about the same as your senators. No one in the NW has Feinstein and Boxer for senators. They're in CA.

Yes, contact your senators and those from other states. I've been threatening some senators from other states with moving there.

I have begun telling Murray and Cantwell that I will get out and actively campaign AGAINST them, and I will. Never have I campaigned FOR someone, even.

Just finished emailing all 52 NRA 'A' rated Senators to stand with Rand, Lee, and Cruz on this filibuster. HAVE YOU?

Well done friend. I auto-faxed the NRA 'A' senators over the weekend, and now I have faxes running to all 100 senators with a more generic message. Made some e-mails over the weekend too.

Keep up the good work.

That's what I'm talkin about, just the facts that normal people can understand.
I hate reading those long & drawn out articals that at leave you still wondering what the heck it meant in the first place.
I'll do my part & hope that others will do there!!!!

(Reuters) - The fate of one of President Barack Obama's key gun-control proposals appeared on Monday night to be in the hands of two senators: one Democrat, the other Republican, both of them longtime opponents of restrictions on guns.

Democratic Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Republican Senator Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania are seeking a compromise on expanding background checks for prospective gun buyers. The proposal appears to be Obama's best hope for meaningful gun-control legislation in the wake of the December massacre of 20 children and six adults at a school in Connecticut, where the president spoke Monday evening to a crowd that included some victims' families.

If Manchin and Toomey can't strike a deal, Obama's calls to require nearly all gun buyers to submit to background checks for criminal records and mental health problems likely will fail, Senate aides said on Monday.


What's the short list we need to focus on? I'm writing them all but I know many won't and it's obvious our own Senators are useless.

Republicans that have shown signs of waffling and Democrats up for election in gun friendly states. The names are out there. I'd google it if I wasn't on my phone. Believe the Dems were in AK, MT, and AR.

Right now Reid's trying to get enough votes to have a vote.

I think it will get the votes to go to debate. To much political capitol to loose by refusing to debate. I am hearing enough senators saying "yes" to debate, but "no" to the bills that I'm not to worried.

Still.... I'm able to get off a few emails every couple days, as well as trying to encourage others to do the same. And will continue to do so until this term ends.
