Index of all current gun control pushes at any level of Government in the US.

-------- High Priority ---------
Colorado state, which is listed below at number 2.  

The magazine capacity ban and other gun control bills passed the house; a group has begun a recall movement on reps who voted for these bills.  They have begun a legal process to force a recall election which requires signatures of 25% of registered voters in the district.  They will need volunteers and funding.  They are in the process of setting up a donation page.  Recalls work even if they end up winning the reelection because it forces them to spend money on a campaign; however, they will likely lose in districts that had close elections to begin with.  Visit the website for more information.  Visit and like the Facebook page.

The purpose of this thread is to provide a universal location to organize pro gun grass roots action and a place to link to or send someone to in order to provide them with all the information they need to get in the fight now and make a difference now.

I'm going to do the best that I can filling in links and providing access (links) to as much information and possible grass roots actions as possible.

Please help me find links to threads and resources to add in here.  If I did not list an issue that is currently going on right now please let me know about it so I can add it

Please bare with me, this is a very ambitious project and requires a lot of time and effort.
