Reader Matthew P. was spammed the other day by Mark Kelly and Gabby Giffords. Well, actually it was their newly-formed, vaguely-named Americans for Responsible Solutions operation that sent the email. And against all odds, the anti-gun org seems to have received lightning-fast service from the IRS in processing their 501(c)(4) application. Guess they just got lucky. Anyway, Matthew was wondering what list ARS bought to snag his email address. Have you received one of these, too?
Dear Matthew –
When Gabby and I meet with Senators and Representatives about legislation to reduce gun violence, the conversation inevitably finds its way to you . . .
Gabby and I have a unique story, but the real strength of our organization is the hundreds of thousands of phone calls, contributions, and signatures on “Gabby’s Pledge” made by people like you.
So, before we make our next visit to Capitol Hill, will you tell us a bit more about yourself? Are you a gun owner, has your family been impacted by gun violence, is this the first time you’ve been active in politics? Let us know here:
Gabby and I are gun owners from the Southwest, and when we have conversations with elected officials we offer a perspective they don’t often get from groups who share our common goal.
The diversity of our organization is important, and we need to be able to tell that story with a bit more data behind it.
That’s why it’s so important that you tell us more about yourself today.
All the best,
Americans for Responsible Solutions
