Southern California --(Ammoland.com)- Hillary Clinton said American gun owners terrorize the country as they shoot children with machine guns.
There are mass murders in our schools every week according to the anti-rights group Mom’s Demand Action for Gun Sense in America.
That is news to me and probably news to you as well. We didn’t hear about those sensationally violent events for a simple reason.
We never heard about them because they never happened.
The only thing murdered in a weekly press release was the truth. Yes, the anti-gunners lied to the American people, and this wasn’t the first time. After he announced his resignation, the Executive Director of Mayors Against Illegal Guns finally admitted his anti-gun proposals would never stop the crazy mass murderers. That means he has been lying to us for years!
When questioned about her lie, Hillary Clinton could say again, “What difference does it make!” Clinton is wrong again. It makes a difference again. You lied again, Hillary, but again your sensational lie was reported as the truth. As intended, Hillary Clinton’s lie was repeated by an enthusiastic media and accepted by many ignorant voters as fact.
Fortunately, those of us who support the right of self-defense have an overwhelming antidote against lies in the media. This time, civil-rights advocates like us are prepared with a secret tool. We have something the gun-grabbers lack. Those of us who support self-defense are equipped with something the lying anti-rights groups lost long ago.
We have our good reputation!
Our friends and neighbors trust us as reasonable people, as people who are both safe and fun to be around. Our good reputation refutes the lies the gun-grabbers tell about gun owners. Our good character does more for the right of self-defense than a multi-million dollar public relations campaign because our friends and neighbors believe us rather than the media.
This matters because 2014 is another election year. Our ability to protect our family and the right of self-defense is at risk from politicians.. again. We can easily defend our rights for years to come. Simply take someone shooting. Yes, it is that easy. Simply take a neighbor or a friend to the range with you and spend some time with them. Show them the fun and safety of shooting. By doing something that simple you brand the anti-rights groups as liars. You prove your point without saying a thing about politics or statistics.
Your smile and the smile of your new shooting friend say everything that need be said. What a difference that makes in preserving our right of self-defense!
If you’re feeling generous, you could even invite one of your local politicians to the range. Don’t worry too much. Being seen with a politician won’t tarnish your good reputation.
