United States -(AmmoLand.com)- I contend that Hillary sees the 2nd Amendment as a collective right and that she will use litigation as her primary tool to destroy the gun and freedom loving culture in America.
Also that the only reason we see a big push for gun control is that it is a way for her to excite her base and that our rights are expendable to her, as part of a get out the democratic vote campaign.
So what can you do? How can you help preserve your right to own a firearm?
- Get involved in social media. Facebook, Twitter. etc. And spend 10 minutes a day defending our rights. Most of these sites keep track of the volume of pro and anti on many subjects. Your pro gun activity helps defend our rights.
- Visit the news section of Bing, Google, or Yahoo and when you see an anti-NRA or gun rights article comment on it, use facts and show the author why they are wrong. But be polite as well!
- Support pro-gun candidates even if they are not your 1st choice.
In 2012, Romney won the Independents votes, what he failed to do was get conservatives to vote for him. Had conservatives shown up for Romney in the same numbers they did for Bush 43, there would not have been an Obama 2rd term. ANYTHING would have been better than the last three years!
Once Hillary finagles the Democrats nomination she will pivot to the center. “Of course, I’ll respect the 2nd Amendment, I just want reasonable gun control laws…for the children.” Then we’ll hear that cackling laugh and she’ll repeat that line over and over.
Don’t let her redefine herself, again! If you do nothing else, help prevent Hillary from hiding her gun banning agenda.
The gun grabbing left have already started to spin her position. In an online discussion, two Hillary supporters stated to me emphatically, that there never has been and never was ANY call for a gun ban or confiscation, by either Hillary or Obama. That it was all invented by the NRA because Hillary is a woman and Obama is a minority. I mean SERIOUSLY? I suggested they look up President Obama’s call that we follow the EU model of gun control or Hillary suggesting an Australian style gun confiscation. They responded, ”THOSE THING NEVER HAPPENED!”. Most of America will buy this lie IF it is repeated enough and goes unchallenged often enough.
Gun owners are a private lot, we don’t want the attention. But we no longer have that choice; the new digital age means we must take the battle on-line.
You’ve registered to vote, and you joined the NRA. You read Ammoland every day to keep up on the right news. Now YOU need to find a voice and speak up. A human eye can make out the flicker of a candle at 30 miles. Enough candles will light up a stadium. Lend your voice. You don’t need to do much, just 10 minutes a day to let your voice be heard.
All you have to lose is your right to own a gun & freedom.
