May 17, 2007 - Legislative Phone Calls – Proper Manners, Please

It has come to the attention of the ISRA that folks claiming to be “pro-gun” have been calling the offices of senators and representatives and being less than polite. In fact, some of these calls have reportedly been downright nasty.

In light of these latest reports, all members are urged once again to be polite to the assistants that answer the phones in the legislative offices. Remember that the person on the other end is someone with whom you would like to leave a positive impression. The assistants may not share the same beliefs as the legislators
that they work for, and of course, are not responsible for how each legislator casts votes.

For those of you who have been calling your legislators, and have been polite, please keep up the good work.

If there are some of you who cannot remain civil, please stop calling because you are doing all of us more harm than good.

On the other hand, there are now strong suspicions that some of these nasty callers are actually members of gun control organizations posing as gun owners just to cast a bad light on us. If you are reading this alert, and you are one of these gun-grabbing jackals pretending to be a gun guy, you can rest assured that the true patriots will prevail in the end.
