I am a huge supporter of the Firearms Policy Coalition (FPC). They send almost daily emails to me that enable me to write to politicians directly about 2a issues. They are boilerplate messages and you only have to hit enter to send. You can modify the subject line or text if you please. Here is the text from todays FPC email I subsequently sent every House and Senate representative about the ATF. It was sent directly to ALL Republicans, Democrats, and Independents
I demand that Congress Defund the ATF!
I am writing to you today to inform you that I stand with Firearms Policy Coalition in demanding the immediate and complete defunding - and ultimately disbanding - of the ATF.
The ATF is a hostile and discriminatory government agency that has unjustly taken both life and property from America’s most vulnerable populations.
What’s more, at a time when America is pondering dismantling law enforcement agencies due to excessive force, we must acknowledge that there is no more violent, hostile and discriminatory law enforcement entity than the ATF.
The ATF in fact has no reason to exist, given that firearms are constitutionally-protected property. And I find it difficult to believe that the government would justify spending hundreds of millions of dollars a year because it thinks it can keep alcohol and tobacco products from being misused.
Bottom line: the ATF does not serve any public interest, and has been responsible for numerous deaths of innocent minorities, as well as the very mass incarceration problem our politicians are grappling with today.
In addition to defunding and disbanding the ATF, I must also ask that you repeal the laws and regulations the ATF enforces against gun owners in defiance of the Constitution.
This is a necessary step to take because merely disbanding the ATF would likely result in another federal agency taking over enforcement of these unconstitutional laws and regulations, as well as perpetuating the cycle of unjust violence and incarceration perpetrated by the ATF.
For these and other reasons, I respectfully urge you to consider legislation that would defund and disband this hostile government agency, and repeal all anti-gun laws and regulations the ATF enforces.

I am proud that the USCCA is a contributor to the FPC. I did not send this as a political statement, but as a statement about my rights and what I see as governmental overreach. Afterwards I contributed another $100.
