Regular readers know that I’ve proudly served on the Board of Trustees of the Second Amendment Foundation for many years. So, I’m predictably proud to announce that one of their most useful concepts is becoming available to all of you, at no charge, delivered in virtual form.
Over the years, I’ve attended the live and in-person versions of these many times. Your speakers will be gun owners’ civil rights activists from all over the country, with proven records of success in lobbying for your rights at the grassroots level.
A sample: one pro tip is to write personalized letters to your legislative representatives, not just copy some boilerplate sent to you by an organization. Virtually every single legislator and legislative staff person I’ve discussed it with tells me “boilerplate” is of low value to the decision-makers in the State Houses. Send them a personal letter and they’re more likely to read it. Better still, try a hand-written letter, short and polite and to the point. The thinking seems to be that any constituent who actually takes pen in hand cares enough about the issue has something to say that the legislator wants to know.
The workshop is free, but you do have to register for it beforehand. The link above will get you there.
Take my word for it: it will be time well spent…and righteously spent.
