Title: How to help MOC in the Legislature

First, to give credit where credit is due.  I'd like to thank Michigan Students for Concealed Carry (http://michigan.concealedcampus.org/) for letting us heavilly borrow from their guide (http://michigan.concealedcampus.org/resources/write-your-reps/).


One of the most effective ways you can support Open Carry is by “lobbying” your elected State Representatives or Senators to tell them that you support us.  The louder our voice gets, the more likely we are to accomplish our mission. We’ve compiled some tips that we’ve found effective – many of them directly from Reps and Senators themselves – that will turn you into an effective citizen. (Find your Representative and find your Senator.) In no particular order:

Emails to rep/senators are good. Better is a face to face w/ them. They occasionally have 'office hours' around the districts, esp up N where it is a long ways between stops.

Viit and intro yourself. I try to have an agenda of items I discuss and give one to both the rep and aides, just a outline. They can then make notes on that sheet.

Make sure your name/addy is on the outline. Stay and have coffee if at all possible.
