I hear all of your arguments and agree with most of them 100%. The loss of the family as the basic unit for teaching our society right from wrong, the banning of the prayer and god from schools and public life. The influence of media mind washing, etc…….
However here are a few of my own thoughts. We freely post our pro-gun thoughts on hunting and gun forums, to people that think mostly like we do. So how do we tell the trues to others? To non-gun owners, law obiding citizens that do not exercise their 2nd constitutional given right. The media states that there are over 200 million guns in the US, 90 million gun owners and barley 4.5 million NAR members. So how do we expect to win this fight? By going to participate every 2 or 4 years in elections? By telling same minded sportsman, hunter, sport shooters, gun collectors, etc… how we fell. I don’t think this will help us win the battle and right to keep our guns. Ask yourself what have you done to spread the message that “the gun is a tool”? I know we are too busy in our lives, meaning we do the things we prioritize as important and leave the other once by the way side. We set our own agenda. When have you stood up and talked to a none gun owner or even an anti-gun person about your right and feelings? Have you done it one time or never? Have you written an article to the local paper? You don’t have to write about the gun, you can write about the sport, hunting, etc… Initiat an open day at the local rifle range, etc….
My point is don’t preach to the choir go out and preach to the “sheep” the millions of people that sit on the fence and can be so easily moved by the few in the media and politics. Next, take $25 a year and joint the NAR, make it a 90 million person organization, so the rest of the country sees our strength that would scare the politicians out of their safe seats and votes. Yes I’m a Life NRA member, as well Life NAHC, Life NWTF, the local Rod and gun club and it does cost money. I do ask you what is the cost? $25 or even $50 per year if we lose our right? It is the cost of a box of amo or a case of beer. Trust me I don’t have money lying around, but I put it where my mouth is. Just some food for thought.
