As per the title, Keep the pressure on Toomey !!!

From Sipsey Street Irregulars


President Barack Obama finds out this week whether he scratches out a narrow victory on gun control — or ends up with nothing at all. . .

The unlikely key to the answer might be a conservative GOP senator from Pennsylvania, Pat Toomey. The former head of the Club for Growth has emerged as a last-minute possible partner on a deal. But his stamp of approval is far from certain. If a deal emerges, Republicans could delay action on it for a week. . .

Manchin is trying to sell Toomey on a bill that would require checks and records of sales in a commercial setting, including at gun shows and online. Loopholes would remain for private sellers. And people who sell a gun that is later used in a crime would not be held responsible for that action. . .

For now, Toomey is key to the deal both in the Senate, where he could provide cover for other Republicans and conservative Democrats, but also in the House, where he is thought by advocates to bring with him the votes of several of Pennsylvania’s 13 House Republicans.

In a statement last week, Toomey signaled he was open to a compromise on background checks. “And, so I’m in favor of making changes to a background system if I believe that it would help to reduce the likelihood that a person who shouldn’t have access to a gun doesn’t get access to a gun,” Toomey said in a local TV interview.

He is getting calls and e-mails from all over the nation from gun owners to make no deal on any gun control measure, my older kids and grand kids have friends from college that they are in touch with that live in many states other than Pa. and are being told about the effort from other states on the Toomey issue, now let us see just how pro 2A he really is.

I did the usual email and fax. I called today too but I'm only able to get his answering service in DC. I left a short but detailed message.

My email to Toomey.

Quote:Dear Mr. Toomey,

Please don't let outsiders tell you what to do in this regard, listen to your constituents, the people that voted you in. We don't want legal owners of firearms to jump through anymore hoops just to make the anti-gun people feel like they are doing something, when in fact it won't do anything to stop violent crime. There are enough laws on the books. Maybe if these laws were enforced and the ones who break them prosecuted we would have no need to think about more laws.

I ask you to go to this website (amgoa.org) and look at all the laws we already have, State and Federal. I also ask you to look at this latest survey of law enforcement officers (http://ddq74coujkv1i.cloudfront.net/p1_g...y_2013.pdf) and see that even they don't think any new law being presented will do anything to curb bad people from doing bad/illegal things.

Please stand with us and stand by the Constitution, we are counting on you to hold to your word, to your oath to us, the residents of your district and your State.

I also sent this one to McCain.

Quote:Sen. McCain,

As a long time registered Republican I am appalled that you will not stand behind your oath to protect the Constitution. Any infringement on the 2nd Amendment is one infringement to many. If you can not or are unwilling to understand what the "people" really want, that we want to be free from a tyrannical Government. That we want to be uninfringed of our rights, then you Sir need to step down from office. You no longer represent us and only represent the fear-mongers of today. Shame on you for falling for the fear-mongers call to disarm the law-abiding people that voted you in.

I sent one to Casey about 2 weeks ago and still have yet to get a response.

I already have called him, and emailed him. I let him know I was at the Gun Show working on the campaign for Corbett right next to his Toomey table. I asked him to continue to support the people who got him elected and to support the constitution. I asked him to realize these proposed changes do not help reduce crime.

I will be calling him again this week on the 11th.

We have to KEEP PA FREE!

Well seeing as it's the only place to find all the laws and be able to read them without digging and digging some more, I don't think it's shameless at all. Just the facts. Big Grin

After emailing the Senator once again yesterday I followed up today with a call to his Allentown office using the 855 number that he publishes on his site. I spoke to a very nice young woman and she stated blatantly that Toomey stands with us against ALL of the bills that are currently being talked about. She said that he intends to stand firm with the 2nd. They are just words but she seemed sincere in her statements.

bill...plain and simple. toomey has turned on us. end of statement. he and manchin have sold us out.

this is a reality we all need to deal with. toomey sold us out for a party on the black tie. the bill was proof. the vote will be all the evidence we need.

from there, we better praywe don't get sold out in the house.
