    Popvox is a great site! Once your account is set up it's pretty much "auto pilot".

    I encourage everyone to register and voice your opinion on the issues that matter to you...

    PopVox rocks, even my 74 year old momma can use it...

    PopVox is great for federal legislation, but is there anything that looks into proposed legislation for all states?

    I use an app called "Open States" own my iDevices. Helpful in keeping track of bills and where they are at. Different than popvox, but very useful.

    Open States looks good, but it doesn't appear to cover very many states.

    can't figure something out

    do I have to click the little boxes on the right hand side when I write comments ... in order to send the letter.

    It's here HERE'S YOUR LETTER!

    then little vetical links to facebook email etc do I have to fill that out, OR, just click " FINISHED" on the far right hand side.

    Seems I do not get a confirmation of my message(s) being sent, but takes me to a comments section. I'm not into feel-good as much as verifying my letter went out?


    Where do I verify my letter went out??

    thanks!!

    According to govtrack, all of the senate bills I've looked at (can't remember the list) have been upgraded to a 13% chance of making it through committee.

    That's an above average chance (the average being 12%).

    Not entirely surprising, but still not encouraging. :(

    After the Easter Recess look for activity on these http://www.popvox.com/blog/2013/issue-spotlight-firearms-113th/.

    Just updated after the midterms. There's certain to be more activity after January, but with the House and Senate controlled by different parties there won't be any new 2A legislation, good or bad, that will pass both houses until after the 2020 elections are done. It WILL be valuable to see which newly elected Congresscritters surprise us and support or oppose 2A bills so we understand better what work needs to be done to protect the 2A.

    In the meantime, more important will be to track State bills. We'll be dependent upon our members for that.

    I have no confidence in the Senate protecting my interests, guns and other, from rapacious House Democrats. There are just too many RINOs, vote swappers, and go along to get along politicians. I have no expectation of the President vetoing a portmanteau bill with anti gun provisions in among so called must-pass legislation.
