Re: “Activists say Tom Cotton has issued do-not-call-or-write notice to some constituents. UPDATE. Such letters sent in 'extreme circumstances' says Cotton's office.

Isn't that a violation of their first-amendment rights?
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."
The last section is the important one here. "Congress shall make no law ... prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech,...and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."
Calling or sending a written message to a legislator (at any level of government) is a valid and recognized way for a citizen to petition a government official to redress their grievances. Plain and simple.
