    I made a mistake about dates. Became law in Kansas 7/1/2015 sorry for my error. Sad to think that makes six with no permit laws and Texas doesn't even have online.

    Dude, come out of the cave more often. It's way more than six states.

    First you announce "news" that's almost three years old, then you misstate how many states have Constitutional Carry.

    Sorry to disturb you but don't understand why someone opens or reply's to post if they are not interested in it. We can't all be up to your level, however I recently became less mobile and people talked me into the computer world. Also my Brother and I are old men and were curious about CCL's. Sorry to bother and Thanks.

    All the knowledge in the world at your fingertips, you can choose to use it or you can watch cat videos all day long. Your choice.

    I won't argue, but will say I've heard the opposite. The phone calls are greatly ignored because it's typically the same old folks calling in again and again and they're not the vote being courted.


    Curious as to how you came to this conclusion? And also, are you referring to a direct email to said party, or does that also include going to their website and filling out the contact me form there?

    So far, Cruz is the only one I remember not responding to comments made on the contact me section of his website. And that's something that his staff used to do from previous experiences. (Not debating about the canned response part though)

    Politicians think mainly of their future as a politician, it would beyond senseless to ignore his constituents if they are planning on being reelected.

    What about the analytics all the sports teams are using these days? You don't think politicians do the same thing to figure out how to dance around certain issues in order to appeal to just enough folks to keep them in office? If they consider your view to be of the 1%, I can see them ignoring you as they have more important things to focus on than keeping a small minority happy.

    Playing to the possibility of just enough is risky business. If you are trying to sway a liberal democrat politician in your area, then of course you'll undoubtedly be ignored.

    I know from personal experience, *somebody* reads the emails. Granted, it’s been twenty years ago (Kay Bailey) but I wrote her an email - off her website - requesting a flag that had been flown over the capital on a certain date and boom(!) an American flag shows up with a certificate attesting ‘this flag was flown over the U.S. capital, Washington, D.C. on xx date’. (It was the date my bride of twenty years ago, became a U.S. citizen)
