FROM MY FB: The first is my response to the email I received from the White House – wrap your head in duck tape before you read the White House Letter after my response . . .
MY EMAIL BACK TO THE WHITE HOUSE:
This is so wrong. Our fathers, grandfathers, and forefathers are turning over in their graves so they cannot see the end of the America they loved. I opened the attachment twice to copy it and the letter to everyone I know to send emails supporting our First and Second Amendment rights. I pray that just because I opened it you will not put me on a list of supporters.
Thank you for your time,
THIS IS THE LETTER I RECEIVED VIA EMAIL YESTERDAY ON WHITE HOUSE LETTERHEAD (Yes, I am on their mailing list, how else am I to know what they are up to?):
Hello, all —
For the first time since the 1990s, Congress might be on track to pass legislation aimed at reducing gun violence in the United States. And it’s because folks in Washington are starting to understand that the rest of the country isn’t going to sit by and let them ignore this issue. Your voices are the reason we have a chance to win this debate. The American people expect and demand a yes or no vote.
But this is a critical moment. It’s been almost four months since the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, thousands more Americans have died at the hands of gun violence, and time is on the side of those who would prefer that we do nothing.
We want to make sure that your voices are impossible to ignore. So we’re asking people from all over the country to speak out online in concert — all at the same time. Will you join us?
Pledge to speak out about the need to reduce gun violence.
It’s easy to participate. Over the next few days, anyone can sign up to tweet or share a message to Facebook. Through that time, we’ll gather up as many people as we can. Then we’ll make sure that all these individual messages get posted together in the same moment for maximum effect.
That wave of social media will get seen by millions and millions of people.
We’re talking about common-sense reforms. Like the idea that any of us who want to buy a gun should have to go through a background check first — which 90 percent of Americans support.
So let’s make sure that there’s absolutely no confusion about the public consensus.
Pledge to speak out with us, and then forward this email to your family and friends:

[When you open their link . . . this is the message they want anti-gun people to TWEET and put on FACEBOOK. There are two buttons for you to click on for that purpose & a copy also goes to the White House for their propaganda. For they will not be putting the PRO-GUN messages the rest of us TWEET AND PUT ON FB, which means they are not listening to the American Majority.]
THIS IS THE MESSAGE THEY WANT ANTI-GUN PEOPLE TO DO:
[I DELETED THE HASHTAG SO I WILL NOT BE ADVERTISING THE LINK]
