First, let me say thanks to the NRA (National Rifle Association) for the “Stand and Fight” drive. Protecting the 2nd amendment is the focus, and we need to heed the call.
Normally, I don’t write endorsements of organizations, much less make a plea for people to join them. But, never before, have our gun rights been attacked as they are currently being attacked across this country.
From Connecticut to Colorado, from New York to California, and all the way to Washington DC, the gun control forces are on the march, and they mean to take no prisoners. Make no mistake, the ultimate goal of the gun grabbers is to take all guns out of the hands of citizens. Frankly, it is more about Government control over people’s lives, then it is about guns.
With the White House pushing hardest for “gun control”, the battle will be at the top and all he way down to the state and local governments. With the recent Colorado actions we have seen the Vice President lobby State Representatives personally and forcefully. Our 2nd amendment enemies are strong.
We can be stronger. There are almost 100 million gun owners in this country. I suspect it is more, because some are already afraid to admit having guns for fear of being listed as “gun owner” by the government.
The NRA has been making very strong membership gains for many months now. They have pushed past 4 million members. Still, that is a small percentage of gun owners. A run on ammunition continues, and some guns are increasingly hard to find. Many do recognize the danger. But many still have not acted. It’s time for that to change.
I urge anyone who wants to see our 2nd amendment defended, to please join the NRA today. Don’t wait. Don’t put it off. Our enemies aren’t. They are strong and organized. But we gun owners can certainly fight back.
Even if you don’t wish to join the NRA there are other organizations you could join. The 2nd Amendment foundation and the Gun Owners of America are just two.
Just to be clear, I don’t benefit personally in ANY way if you join one of these groups. But, our country does benefit, and our country needs you. Will you answer the call?
