From PAFOA.ORG:

I'm writing to you once again to remind you of the major Pro-Gun lobbying rally that is being organized for Monday April 7th in Harrisburg and to tell you how you can help even if you can't make it in person.

April 7th will be one of the most important days for firearm owners in Pennsylvania to interact with our representatives and remind them that we will not stand idly by while certain legislators attempt to legislate away our rights, and punish law-abiding firearm owners for the actions of criminals they are unable to control.

The fact of the matter is, firearm owners are a force to be reckoned with in Pennsylvania and each one of us has the power to shape the future of our hobby and sport and our legislators know this. In fact we received a report this week that the anti-gun legislators in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives attempted to finish all business so that they didn't have to be there on Monday. Why? Because they do not want to face us and have to defend their weak positions on anti-gun legislation.

If you feel you can attend this event, please see our alert here.

If however you can not attend the event due to distance, work or other commitments, there are other ways you can help!

All of our legislators need to know our basic position on dealing with the issues plaguing the state:

Go after the criminals terrorizing the fine citizens of this commonwealth, not the firearms owned by law-abiding citizens. Passing laws that will be ignored by criminals and only punish people who have no inclination to commit crime is nothing more than feel good politics.

The pro-gun politicians must be reminded that we support them in their efforts to do what's right and that we appreciate their willingness to stand firm for what they believe.

The anti-gun politicians must be forced to look within and ask themselves whether they are trying to deal with crime, or put on a dog and pony show for their constituents.

To do this we urge you to contact as many legislators as you possibly can via email over the weekend of April 5th-6th and through the morning of April 7th. Our goal is to show them that while not every gun owner in Pennsylvania can be there in person, that there are thousands upon thousands of us present in spirit and watching. Our legislators must be reminded that we take our hobby, our sport, and our rights very seriously and will act to protect them.

Additionally we would strongly encourage you to email as many legislators as you possibly can with the same message.
