Boulder, CO – -(Ammoland.com)- On how many occasions, come election time, do you hear gunnies come up with some inane excuse as to why they are not going to vote? “Oh, my vote doesn't count,” they snivel.
“The politicians will do whatever they damn please. A pox on both houses.”
Well, SOFers, if that was the case, why do all the left-wing, bottom feeders swarm to the ballot box? Because they know that voting Democratic will ensure they get their share of slop at the public trough.
Or I should say, filtching dollars out of your and my wallet? Keep in mind, George W. Bush only beat fat boy Gore by some 300-odd votes in Florida, in 2004, which saved our guns – for another eight years. (Clarification: I certainly was not impressed when George W. said he would sign a renewal of the 1994 assault rifle ban if Congress passed it.)
Bringing it closer to home and more current, in the Colorado recall election last year, in which SOF played a minor role, the pro-gun candidate that defeated the ultra-anti-gun state senator who honchoed the 30-round magazine ban only won by 300- some votes. Bringing it even closer to home, SOF’s Gun Rights Editor, Paul Danish, lost a race for the Colorado Assembly by four votes several election cycles ago.
The National Rifle Association's“TRIGGER THE VOTE” campaign, promoted by NRA stalwart Chuck Norris, wasn't put together to waste time and money. Also, Norris, who didn't get paid for the endorsement, has plenty of fish to fry without having to front for such PR For those who haven't had an opportu- nity to see what “TRIGGER THE VOTE” is all about, check out the SOF website…sofmag.com. Basically, Norris provides 10 reasons to register to vote.
The number one reason, somewhat tongue-in-cheek, reads, “With one hand, I can crush coal into a diamond. With yours, you can protect your rights!”
That basically says it all. If you can't figure that out, you belong in a FEMA camp somewhere.
While speaking of the NRA, I know that a number of you who are reading this may have some imaginary or valid complaint with the NRA. I've been on the NRA Board of Directors for 30 years and I have had butted heads with various individuals in the power structure. But look, the NRA has had warts, has warts, and always will have warts, as does any large organization.
Think the U.S. Army. It’s composed of humans with individual frailties…some large, some small. But the bottom, bottom line is, no matter what the NRA’s critics and naysayers say, like Dudley “Doofus” Brown (no relation, please!), the NRA is the only thing that stands between gunnies and gun confiscation.
The anti-gunnies preach “No More Gun Violence” and “Common Sense Gun Legislation,” which are simply dishonest ploys to bamboozle the masses of “sheeple” by concealing their ultimate objective, is a gun-less society in which the individual is at the mercy of an all powerful, oppressive state.
As Thomas Jefferson said, “Those who beat their arm into plows will plow for those who don't.”
I have no doubt that if Jefferson were around today, he would be standing arm-in-arm with Chuck Norris, the NRA and, of course, SOF. Get off your lazy ass and vote…save your guns…join the NRA! God bless and pray for the Republic!
