So I hit up all of the reps/sens So far I got Costa, Chippendale (pro but known), Fiin(anti also known but not posted), and Newbery (pro), if I hear back from more I'll post them, I'm also going to hit any non-responders again (and again and again) until I get a response.

I think we'd do better to also phone our representatives and not just email them. I've been told that a phone call in their mind equals 10 or 20 emails.

On the important issues, I also snail mail them to their residence. Emails are one key away from the trash bin. I don't know anybody who tosses unopened personally addressed letters. I Agree with the phone calls, even when I 've left messages, they call back. If you need help looking up a particular pol's address or phone, please ask.

On the vote to proceed to debate on President Obama’s anti-gun agenda, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid succeeded in overcoming Senator Rand Paul’s filibuster, 13 NRA "A Rated" Republicans and 9 "A Rated" Democrats voted to help him do it, plus 2 more NRA "B Rated" politicians.

This is one of the reasons we cannot rest on what rating a politician has been given by the NRA. Even with Representative Larry Valencia introducing anti gun legislation in 2011, the NRA still listed him as a "?" in the 2012 election. We can use the ratings as a rough guide, but we need to get out there with letters and calls and found out who is on our side and who is not. "We the People" of RI need to look out for our own future.

You can add Canario and Craven to the Pro reps side, seems like I'm getting responses from the House and not the Senate

Rep. Fellela has replied that she is not planning on voting for any of the bills.

Not voting at all??
It's better than voting for them, but I would prefer if she voted against them.

Nope, she is not planning on voting FOR any of the bills, she stated that she believes the existing laws are plenty.

I received a response from Sen. Ryan W. Pearson of District 19, Cumberland/Lincoln. I can send the scanned copy of the letter if needed via PM or email. He gave a lukewarm response, neither pro or anti gun.
