I lifted this off another forum
I just got an email from Todd Vandermyde. He said the following 4 Representatives are vulnerable to pressure from both sides right now:

Great Etch I am all over it.
At least half of the emails I sent last week to published rep email addresses generated delivery delay messages and eventually were returned as undeliverable. Some are clearly decoy dumps.
Sadly email is not the best way, though it is the easiest to blast so do it too. Letters and phone calls rule. Do write and call reps who are not from your district they will still have to read them and log them anyway.
Being busy counting us is good for them.
I called my rep again (Jim Durkin) and left my typical message. In a way, I'm glad to see he could go either way. From what I've been able to find out, he has a reputation for being anti-gun rights.
She has a decent rating from the NRA and an OK rating from the GOA.
I am sure she recognizes my name because I contact her by phone and e-mail regulary.
Maybe if you guys called her office it would have more impact.
i have gotten a response for her that did not give an answer,if she is for or against the bill
my follow up to her was replyed to by her aide stating she will have to see the bill in its complete form before she will decide.
Don't hold your breath on Pihos--I think she's been anti since she got in a few years ago.
