You can write, e-mail or call a congressman who thinks the way you do and explain what you think should be done. Maybe he will introduce the bill you want. Lobbying via various organizations the citizen belongs to may also help get the bill passed.

But, to be specific, a citizen cannot themselves introduce a bill in Congress - only an actual Member of Congress can do that.
