Thank You For Calling Congress!Your phone should ring momentarily and you'll be connected with your Representative.
Here's a script if you'd like some help on the call.Script:
Hi, my name is ___ and I’m a constituent of [Your Rep's Name] calling from [Your City / Town]. I’m calling about the gun lobby’s attempts to push its dangerous agenda through Congress. This includes pending legislation that would deregulate gun silencers and federally mandate concealed carry reciprocity – both of which severely threaten our communities and put law enforcement at risk all so that the gun industry and lobbyists can profit. In light of the shooting in Las Vegas, we need [Representative Name] to stand up to the gun lobby and do something to make our communities safer from gun violence.
What is [Representative Name's] position on these dangerous bills?
If supportive: How can [Representative Name] jeopardize our safety and make it harder for law enforcement to do their job by supporting these bills? As our elected leader, it’s [Sen/Rep]’s responsibility to stand up for the safety of [his/her] constituents and resist the gun lobby’s agenda. I urge [Representative Name] to vote against these dangerous proposals.
If noncommittal: If [Sen/Rep] is serious about keeping [his/her] constituents safe and supporting law enforcement, I expect [him/her] to oppose this legislation. Can [Representative Name] commit to protecting America’s communities and law enforcement officials by voting against these bills backed by the gun lobby?
Will [Representative Name] have the courage to stand up to the gun lobby and do something to make our communities safer from gun violence?
