Yesterday I posted an open letter to my Congressman, Dr. Phil Gingrey, urging him to vote for HR822, the National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act.
I fully expect him to do so, since he is a co-sponsor.
I did not, however, give much guidance on how you can contact your Member of Congress to urge them to do the same. I assume my readers are capable of using the Interwebz to find such things.
Barring that, the website Congress.org has a nifty app that allows you to enter your zip code and fins out who your elected officials are. Please avail yourself of this service if needed.
As an aside, please don’t let this be the only time you contact your representative. I make it a point to write or email my Congressman and my Senators at least monthly.
Keep your letters and emails short and to the point. Don’t ramble.
I am proud to live where I live. Our Congressmen in the past have included Larry McDonald, Newt Gingrich, and Bob Barr.
But I’m reminded of Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gobachev’s rule: “Доверяй, но проверяй.”
Trust, but verify.
