    Can Tom Cole be depended on?

    Off topic here but need some opinions. I have read several news feeds that state that Tom Cole is in meetings with gun grabber Chuck Shumer and others regarding the universal background checks. I have tried contacting him on several occasions without any replies. I am just wondering what the concensus in here as to whether he can be counted on to protect and uphold our 2nd amendmant rights here in OK or will he sell us out to the DC gun grabbers?

    I think you may be thinking of Tom Coburn. Cole is a House member and wouldn't be working on a Senate bill. However, Coburn is currently working with Schumer on a background check bill.

    I haven't verified it, but I've heard that he term-limited himself and this is his last term. He did term-limit himself when he was a Congressional Representative. So, like President Obama, he has nothing to lose. I hope he is looking out for us and the 2nd Amendment. All we can do is to keep calling, writing, and sending email.

    I have tried contacting all the congressmen and even tried contacting Mary Fallen - numerous times. I have gotten no replies from anyone. I have sent faxes, emails, signed petitions, and etc etc etc. What I have learned is that it's all a waste of time. No one cares. They're all under the influence of a very severely narcisistic man they claim is the president, tho I doubt that. He is not my president.

    This sure seems to be exactly who is in the white house but like I said, no one cares anymore. The only one left to do anything about this governmental mess is WE THE PEOPLE and it seems sooner than later, it's going to fall into our laps to save our country. I will never give up my gun. I will never tell a doctor I have a gun. I will never register my weapons.

    it appears that he is indeed meeting with Schumer but only in the context of taxes...not 2A issues...i have received replies from every senator and congressman I wrote to about 2A issues...every one of them have expressed a Pro-2A attitude and response...now the caveat is: most responses were "form letters" as I call them...so take it for whatever its worth

    Thanks guys

    Like I stated I have sent numerous messages and made phone calls too and all without any answers whatsoever. I also have a very strong distrust of most of our elected officials and feel they are out to better themselves rather than their constituants. Just very concerned about this latest attack on our 2A rights with all the hype and misinformation circulating now. Like good ole Uncle Joe telling his wife to take her double barrel shotgun outside with the intruders and empty both barrels into the air leaving her with nothing more than a club to defend herslf with.

    It is a fact of life that the only person you can depend on is the person looking at you in the mirror. Any faith in a politician is foolhardy. So, in answer to your question... No.

    Yeah, Coburn definitely jumped on the bandwagon with this. His camp normally at least sends a form letter back in response to 2A issues, but they aren't doing it for this one. It seems like he's trying to duck any questions about it.
