Ruger Makes it Easy to Get Your Voice Heard

By The ITS Crew

While reporting on the 2013 SHOT Show, we stopped by the Ruger booth to check out a kiosk they had set up. Basically, they came up with a very easy way for gun owners to send a pre-written letter to elected officials letting them know your stance on gun laws.

Once you input your information, it creates the message and selects all of the appropriate recipients. It chooses them based on your address and Ruger does not store your information. You can pick and choose who from that list receives your message as well if you didn’t want someone to receive the message.

After you submit your message, you get a confirmation email with the date and time and names of who your message was sent to. One small thing I thought of is that I would like to see a copy of my message just to be certain it wasn’t sent as: Dear (Recipient). Other than that, it’s a very simple process.

Here is a copy of the message that gets sent to the President, Vice-President, your Senators, Representative, Governor, Lieutenant Governor, State-Level Elected Officials and State Attorney General:

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.

    I did this through their website. Very very convenient. It automatically sends a form letter to ALL of your representatives. I even received a couple of form emails back from a few reps. One of whom made it clear on her stance against guns. Susan A. Bonilla (California) can be assured of my diligence in making sure everyone I know is clear on her stance and will not vote her into office for another term.

    Done! From my cold, dead hands!

    Looks like the term “pre-ban” may be in fashion again soon.

    This was amazingly convenient and the letter sent to my representatives in the government is well written and quick to the point. I sent it out at 5pm Monday. 9am today already got a response from a state senator. Thank you for providing the link.

    Glad to see this reposted here. I used this quick and easy contact method as soon as it was posted on the SHOT Show 2013: Day 2 Live Coverage entry here on ITS. Excellent tool. I even heard back from one of the nine representatives that I contacted. Thanks to the ITS Crew for working to keep us all involved.

    Because spam is only cool when it is political?

    We need to enforce laws already on the books
