Call your Senators

Might as well give them a call.  Even if you get voice mail.

It turns out the Toomey-Manchin Amendment is vague and unclear as to what is and is not a prohibited private transfer.

I am of the opinion that the Toomey-Manchin Amendment doesn’t honestly give us enough to justify the vague language, and what we’re being asked to give up. I think it would be difficult for an ordinary gun owner to know what’s legal and what’s not legal, so the smart advice would be to run all sales to someone you do not know, or who is a cop, through an FFL. I think there are probably also quite a lot in here we’re missing. I don’t trust what the courts and the DOJ are going to do with it. Also, today’s exceptions will be tomorrow’s loopholes. I think this Toomey-Manchin deal needs to be opposed, and people need to call their Senators.

So there's an angle if you have a senator that is "friendly" to this mess.   Keep calling and writing. It's cheap and easy.
