Manasquan, NJ –-(Ammoland.com)- Have recent comments by Dick Cheney regarding restrictions on High Capacity Firearms Magazines, combined with the Arizona shooting of 20 people by a mentally deranged individual spurred on President Obama to finally take on the politically dangerous topic of gun control?
The liberal left gun control organizations and anti-gun political fat cats, like New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, have publicly scolded the president for not moving faster to implement their anti freedom agendas. Up until now the president has shown great restraint from publicly identifying specific actions in the name of limiting the Second Amendment.
But is he now feeling bold enough to take on the majority of freedom loving Americans with the launch of a more gun control?
Announcements by Chris Mathews, Newsweek, and others seem to indicate that the President is planning to hold a press conference regarding just that topic – “increased gun control initiatives”.
When we asked John Lott, resident scholar at American Enterprise Institute & Author of More Guns, Less Crime? he noted: “It seems clear that the Obama administration is going to move openly to do what it has been doing quietly regarding gun control. Presumably he will push for re-instituting parts of the Assault Weapon Ban. ”
“There might also be changes regarding background checks. Both involve spending money on things that do not reduce crime.”
Make no mistake about it any attempt at additional federal gun control initiatives whether through new laws or executive orders (the easy way to gun control without facing Congress, with its new Tea Party & Libertarian backed members) will be a direct assault against the overall American consensus – that we do not need more restrictions on our second amendment freedoms.
“Obama has been a vicious anti-gunner forever. He has deceitfully thrown us a bone with signing into law our right to carry in national parks, but he and his anti-gun cronies would never fail to ever let a ‘tragedy go to waste.' ”
Anyone paying attention to this master of smoke and mirrors knows he is always ready to pounce on our God given, Constitutionally guaranteed individual right to keep and bear arms, and I along with many freedom fighters feel it coming soon.”
“If we bend over and let it happen, we will get what we deserve. Now is the time to wallpaper and carpetbomb our elected officials and the media with the truth about more guns equal less crime, now more than ever. Give NRA memberships to everyone you know.” said Rock Star and NRA Board Member, Ted Nugent
Agreeing with Mr. Nugent, author and firearms law expert, Alan Korwin, believes it is the time for the Grass Roots Gun Lobby to be on the offensive.
“[It is well known that] the forces aligned against our civil right to arms are disgracefully using an assassin's heinous crime to foment hatred and attack us, now is not the time to simply resist their power-hungry vitriol and bile, which will only make them push more strongly.
“Now is the time to advance a vigorous pro-rights agenda, because it is the righteous response to the problems their anti-freedom efforts create. Free people from the governmental chains that constrain them, and seek a more robust and fruitful expression of rights that are so fundamental to the American way of life.
“Force them to resist us, by taking the high moral ground on the constitutionally guaranteed right to defend innocent life against whatever evil may confront us.
“To begin, it is well past time to eliminate the obstacles and finally attain national [firearms] carry rights for all law-abiding adult Americans.”
So what should you, a concerned citizen of the United Sates, do in perpetration for this coming attack?
First join a group that supports your rights.
Step one, don't wait for the main assault, be proactive, do something now. With that in mind, everyday Americans, should join one of the many grass roots gun rights organizations of which there are many including of course, the big dog in the room, the National Rifle Association (NRA).
For some the NRA may not be the best fit. That is OK because you have many other national and local pro gun groups to choose from.
State & Local Level:
- Virginia Citizens Defense League (VCDL)
- Illinois State Rifle Association (ISRA)
- Arizona Citizens Defense League (AzCDL)
- Montana Shooting Sports Association (MSSA)
- Buckeye Firearms Association (BFA)
- These are just a few of the most active groups, there are many more in each state.
The second tool is Social Media.
The core of all these initiatives, both for and against gun control, is politicians and their support by their constituents. At the end of the day it is the people each politician directly represents telling them “don't Sponsor Gun Control or loose your job next election” that will make the difference. We all know that politicians most of all want to keep their jobs.
That is where social media (primarily FaceBook, Twitter) comes in. “Bookmark”, “Tweet”, “Like” and “ReTweet” positive pro gun articles like this one and many others. Keep the social chatter dominated by Pro Gun News and drown out those pushing for taking away your freedoms. By keeping the general public seeing and reading pro gun news story's, on the side of the issues that supports freedom, we make it easier for them to tell their politicians to keep on the same path. We also build a flood of “What Hot News Story's” all in support of our freedoms and something political strategists will take notice of.
For many of you, you are already doing it on a small scale, just make a concentrated effort to spread support for gun rights among your networks of friends, fans and family. It is easy, if you are on FaceBook just click the “Like Button” at the top or bottom of this page, if your on delicious, Digg, Reddit, Stumble Upon or Twitter click any of the links found at the bottom of this page. It is that simple, you just took the first step to support your right to keep and bear arms. Felt good right? Now just pick another article and do it again.
It definitely seems that our President is ready to NOT let Arizona's most recent tragedy “Go To Waste”. Don't let anti freedom forces, like the Violence Policy Center, Brady Campaign and Mayors Against Illegal Guns influence our politicians and impose more restrictions on your second amendment rights.
