Have Gun Will Travel – 2ndAmendmentPatriots.org
South Bend, Indiana – -(AmmoLand.com)- For those who remember the old TV cowboy shows they might recall Have Gun Will Travel. The lead character named “Paladin”,who was fast with a gun,would travel and offer his services to resolve disputes or lend a helping hand.
Well we’re no Paladin but we are going to travel and hope to lend some help here in Indiana to get other folks to join up in protecting gun rights in this state.
Margie and I along with 7 other fellow 2nd Amendment Patriots are going to head for the South Bend area and hopefully meet with as many of our fellow citizens up there as possible and share some of the things we have been doing over the past 10 plus years.
We’ve never tried anything like this before, but we’re willing to make a 7 hour drive up there to give it a shot. It’s over 300 miles and our plans are to leave early on Saturday August 22 and sit down with those folks about 7 pm their time.
We’ll try to keep this meeting under two hours or so and then we’ll head back the next morning. I know it’s going to be a hard ride and we have the wives traveling, too. The women are an important part of this group and they have special insight that they are going to speak about as well.
In the gun debate we often hear about the “loophole”. Well there is a loophole, but it’s not a gun show loophole, it’s a network loophole. Every state has it. Folks that stand for gun rights just don’t seem to connect up. They don’t “STAY UNITED”.
What we’re hoping to do in the goal is to lace up the folks in this state together. In politics money talks and I don’t think anyone would dispute that. But, I tell you there is something else that talks…ACTION.
Maybe while some big dog politician who has all the money in the world to throw at billboards and TV commercials, we can work under the trip wire and educate folks to what they really need to be doing and knowing what the real score is.
The thinking here is that many of the people in our area who can make our meetings get the advantage of hearing and seeing their fellow citizens, while those at the far ends of the state can only stay connected by e-mails, which is a good thing but it’s not the same.
I think if they can see the faces of our Patriot members and see that they are just like them, just regular folks and can see the expressions on their face and hear the tone and sincerity in their voices, it might have more effect. We’re hoping to fulfill Sam Adams quote: “It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people’s minds..”
We hope our efforts will work. I think they will. It beats sitting home laying on the couch eating potato chips and hoping someone’s doing something.
I hope all of our brothers and sisters up north that get these e-mails will be there with welcoming arms. Rep. Jackie Walorski has the Nelson’s Golden- Glo Headquarters in Wakarusa, Indiana lined up for us to meet at and it’s going to start at 7 pm their time.
You can contact her or our good friend Len Grummell for details.
I’ll keep you all posted as things progress.Jim and Margie
