GOA’s Legislative Action Center, which is hosted and managed by
Congressional Quarterly. Many of you tried to take action on our alert
on Tuesday, but found that the site was not working.
CQ had “fixed” some broken features over the weekend, but
apparently, they “fixed things real good” -- it was impossible to send
messages to House Reps. Well, CQ has now repaired their mistake, thus
making it possible for you to take action on our most recent alert
entitled “Obama: I will not negotiate.”
As always, thank you so much for taking action and for letting
us know when the site is not running as it should. You guys are our
“first responders” in the battle to preserve our liberties, and we rely
heavily on you to let us know right away if you are experiencing
problems with the Legislative Action Center.
LEGISLATIVE UPDATE: According to The Washington Post (10/1/13), there are now 12 Republicans who are willing to support a “clean” Continuing Resolution.
Translation: They are willing to stab gun owners in the back
and to vote with Democrats in funding the ENTIRE government -- including
voting to fund the unpopular, anti-gun ObamaCare law.
1) Scott Rigell (R-VA)
2) Pat Meehan (R-PA)
3) Charlie Dent (R-PA)
4) Peter King (R-NY)
5) Devin Nunes (R-CA)
6) Jon Runyan (R-NJ)
7) Mike Fitzpatrick (R-PA)
8) Frank Wolf (R-VA)
9) Michael Grimm (R-NY)
10) Rob Wittman (R-VA)
11) Erik Paulsen (R-MN)
12) Lou Barletta (R-PA)
Plus, there are four more who, according to the Post, are on the fence and might be soon voting with the 12 above. They are:
13) Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV)
14) Steve Womack (R-AR)
15) Dennis Ross (R-FL)
16) Frank LoBiondo (R-NJ)
