U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- When was the last time you went shooting? When was the last time you attended a Friends of NRA dinner? When was the last time you did anything except complain about the NRA?
Last November gun owners joined together to stop Hillary Clinton. Her calls for a ban on all semi-automatic firearms, an Australian style mass buyback and forced registration leading to confiscation were what rallied many of us. So let me ask you a question. How many of you know and accept that Hillary’s views were not unique, but represent the actual views of the leadership in the Democrat party?
She’s never changed or renounced this position. Chuck Schumer is even worse. If in power, he intends to hammer guns out of existence with new legislation.
So let me ask a question: what are you doing to help defend your right to own a firearm? (I’ll wait while you think about it.)
Ok, I’ve waited. SO what are you doing to help defend the constitution? Reading Ammoland is a good start, but I was hoping for something more. I was hoping you’d get off your butt and fight to keep your rights.
ONCE OUR RIGHTS ARE TAKEN, THEY ARE NEVER RETURNED.
Look at CA, and NY or NJ. Judges rule they’ve gone too far and they simply ignore the judge.
There are 120,000,000 gun owners in the U.S. we need to shake off our apathy are stay active.
Gun ownership is on the rise. We need to help new gun owners and support our community.
Three things you can do:
- Attend a Friends of NRA event. This link will help you find a local event.
- Make sure your NRA membership is paid and up to speed. 40 million gun owners THINK they’ve paid their dues. Make sure yours are paid.
- Vote in the next election. CHALLENGE your candidates on supporting gun rights.
Get off your butt and stop letting otherscarry your load.
Only 119 million in total voted in 2016. There are 120 million-gun owners. A 5% increase in gun owner turn out, and we can preserve our rights and freedoms forever.
So I’ll say it again. Get off your butt and get active. If not you have no one but yourself to blame when Newson in CA or President Booker in DC come to confiscate your guns. Don’t tell me you’ll fight… you won’t. If you don’t have it in you to do something now, you’ll sit home if the heavy lifting ever comes. Be a patriot not when you can, when it’s easy.
