    If you live in TX's 1st or 18th congressional districts, please contact your rep immediately to oppose the 2007 Assault Weapon Ban!

    The new legislation, H.R. 1022., is currently in Committee, and the following two reps are on the Judiciary Committee. Their opinion helps decide whether this bill gets killed now, or moves on to Congress.

    The 1st is around Tyler/Longview.
    The 18th is around inner Houston.
    Look yourself up on Google if you're not sure about your district (I'll admit, I wasn't either)

    Here's the text from the Library of Congress:

    And here's the link to automatically contact your rep, though a phonecall or postcard would also be great: www.house.gov/writerep/

    I emailed my rep yesterday, though there's not much he can do unless it moves out of committee.

    But, if your'e in the 1st or the 18th, your voice matters _now_.

    Take care,

    Emailed mine as well, though I'm outside the two districts as well.
