IMPORTANT NOTE: You may find that some Senators and Assembly Members try to reject your contacts if you are not from their district. Sometimes legislator’s websites require that you enter a local zip code in order to e-mail their office. Please don’t be deterred by their attempts to silence you! Let them know that you have the right to contact them and that you will continue to contact them when there is a Second Amendment or hunting rights issue pending before the legislature.
