This is exactly right. Please see my post #8 for a link to the CPB address and sample letter.
Time is of the essence
They are not
accepting emails and only offered to accept written letters via snail mail from the public for thirty days which expires June 21, THIS coming Sunday.
Letters must be in their hands by June 21, NOT postmarked by June 21. If you haven't sent your letter out already, please do so asap.
I would hate to be a felon
for crossing state lines carrying the pocket knife I use to cut a horse loose in a trailer should an accident occur, etc. as would anyone who carries one for work or personal business.
I don't even want to think about how many people this would put out of work.
