People that can block legislation in Washington:

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid -- Already shows reluctance to bring to a vote. Contact Senator Reid
Speaker of the House Boehner -- Recently stated not inclined to tackle the gun issue. Contact the Speaker | Speaker.gov
Senate Minority Whip Mitch McConnell -- Excellent track record on the 2a Contact - U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell
**House judiciary committee chair Bob Goodlatte** -- Can keep bills lost in committee forever Bob Goodlatte - Virginia 6th District
Representative Tom Coburn -- "Dr. No" that will filibuster just about anything Contact Form - Tom Coburn, M.D., United States Senator from Oklahoma

This is pertinent information for those of us in states whose reps are already lost. These people play a bigger part in the battle than any individual rep, and certainly do a hell of a lot better than asking Schumer or Gillbrand to represent you.

Pummel the hell out of these folks, they're our better hope. Something can't pass if it never comes out of committee or never comes to a vote.

I've already been writing Coburn because he's from my home state, didn't know he was so well known for using the secret Senatorial hold to prevent bills from reaching the floor. I'll email him right now asking him to use that privilege on Feinstein's AWB.
