1.  Question= What is my 'Watch List', What does it DO, and How do I 'add' to or 'remove' legislation from 'my' watch list?

    The 'Watch List' allows members to track current session legislation by 'clicking' on the selected bill you want to track and then click the 'track this bill' link.  This tracking will show up in the 'Members Area' area and can be managed there.  Another feature is that by tracking legislation of interest you will receive automated e-mail updates 'anytime' any change in status of your 'tracked' legislation thus allowing you to reach out and communicate with your legislator regarding these changes.

    To Add a Proposed Bill to your Watch List: Go to the 'Legislation' drop down menu and select the legislation area of interest - PA House or Senate legislation or US House or Senate legislation.  Then select the legislation of interest by 'clicking' on the bill number.  Once you are 'viewing' the legislation look in the 'upper right corner' of the window and you will see a link that says, "track this bill" Click on this link to add the proposed bill to your watch list. When a bill is already in your watch list the link will say tracking bill.

    To Remove a Proposed Bill: There are 2 ways to remove a law from your watch list. First you may go to your Members Area and click on the checkbox next to each law to remove it. You may also remove a law from your watch list by going to the law and clicking on the, "tracking bill" link. A pop up window will ask you to confirm you want to remove this law from your watch list?. If you click OK, the law will be removed.

     To find laws you have added to your watch list go to your Members Area. They are listed at the bottom.


2.  How do I set up automatic alerts:

Once you have signed up for a membership and logged in under 'Members' and 'Members Log-In' go to your Members Area and click on the link that reads 'Edit your membership preferences'.


3.  Activism Effectiveness: How to present a good public image and deal with the media.  All TOO often the media paints gun owners in the most unflattering light meant to disparage us in any way possible.  It is up to each of us to ensure we do not contribute to the stereotype perpetuated by a biased and prejudiced media.  We have assembled some basic thoughts and guidelines that we recommend you take a few minutes to review the material available at the link below to brush up on the necessary techniques for effective communication to the public.

4. Candidate Recommendation/Endorsement Policy: The purpose of this policy is to explain how we examine candidates as well as elected legislators (incumbents). Very frequently we find that many people are unaware of the nuances that go into our endorsement process as well as the even more nuanced recommendation process in the primary.

We very much hope that you will take a look at this process and understand the amount of work that is taken to develop this into a fair process that takes into account as many factors as possible.
