Dear Senator,
Please accept this e-mail as a sincere thanks on behalf of myself and all responsible firearms owners in the state of Maryland for you support in helping block the Assault Weapons Ban over the last few years. We respectfully ask for your support once again to block the proposed AWB in 2006.
In addition, we respectfully ask for your support on two Senate bills. With the hopeful passage of SB-910, the "Castle Doctrine Bill", we will no longer be "forced" to retreat from a threat within our own homes for fear of prosecution for defending ourselves and our families. Please support SB-910.
Lastly, we request your support on the passage of SB-911, which will remove the need for a "good and substantial reason" in obtaining a permit to carry a concealed firearm, and make Maryland a "Shall Issue" state. Please support SB-910.
Thank you, Mr. Senator, for taking the time to consider our position on these issues. Good luck and God Bless.
Sincerely, Christopher J.Reed, Edgewater, Md. District 21



This was my first ever correspondence with an elected official. I hope it doesn't sound stupid. What do you all think?

It is Ok with me if others would like to use my letter as a model for their own.

Chris,

Good on ya'......short, sincere and to the point. You've already done more than 90% of MD gun owners will do in order to advance RKB issues in this state.

Great letter. Now that you have one under your belt, crank a few more out to some of the other Senators and Delegates.

Don't forget to send his campaign a check after the Annapolis session is over. He's being targeted by the MMM/Brady types for defeat.

Frank, that's the exact same response I got, word for word. Probably automatically generated.

Thats ok, they probably compile all the e-mails to see what is important to people.

Hopefully we can make a difference

Bottom line is that if you know anyone in his district (Northern PG and Western AA Counties) get them to call/write/email and tell them that as a resident of his district they oppose the AWB.

I am not a MD resident, but I am a member of IACP and a Deputy Chief of Police for a municipality in PG County.
If someone would like to provide me with his email, I'd be happy to write to him explaining how the AWB is not a help to LE, and how I would support shall issue laws.
