A short list that’s been going around the internet, sent out by Chris Cox, NRA executive director:
There are 20 U.S. senators, in particular, who hold the fate of your freedom in their hands.
These senators represent states where gun ownership is respected and our Second Amendment freedoms are revered.
But right now, they’re facing huge pressure from the gun ban lobby and Barack Obama to support Obama’s extreme gun control agenda!
So please, call each of the senators below and tell them to vote NO on any gun ban…NO on any magazine ban…NO on criminalizing private firearm transfers…and NO on any gun registration scheme.

Spread your calls out over several days if you need to.
And remember: It doesn’t matter if you do not live in these senators’ states – YOU NEED TO CALL THEM. After all, the votes they cast will affect you no matter where you live!
Thank you for your hard work and dedication to winning this battle. Now is not the time to let up! Call each of these 20 senators as soon as you can.
Some of them are already considered to be on the ban side, like McCaskill, and others, like Donnelly, might be considered somewhat against a ban; but they’re from states where their reelections may hinge on their decisions, so they’re susceptible to pressure.
May as well start exercising the First Amendment to save the Second.
