We Can Win Every Fight on Gun Rights
It's a frustrating realization when you understand that U.S. gun owners can actually win almost every fight on gun rights, but that we are unwilling to do what's needed. It's not as though we have to charge a machine gun or run through artillery. Nope. All we have to do is get more gun owners engaged, committed, and on board.
There's an old line I like. Question: What could the NRA do if it had 20 million members? Answer: Anything it wanted.
And there it is. Numbers. Pure and simple. Votes and dollars. It's not really about the NRA, because I strongly support the Second Amendment Foundation, also. It's about getting on board. Every. Single. Gun. Owner.
What about this? Every time you introduce someone to shooting, you say that the guns and ammo you supply are free, but there is a fee. That person must become a member of the NRA. And, you have the form with you, and you have them fill it out at the range. Keep a bunch of NRA membership forms in your range bag, the glove compartment of your truck, and even fold one into your wallet so you can bring it out when needed. When someone you're talking with pronounces his support for gun rights, ask if he or she is an NRA member. If not, pull out the form and have that person fill it out on the spot, and get his money. Right there. Shame him or her into it, if you must.
Because you have committed. Because you are a member of the Gun Talk Truth Squad. Because you get it. You are in the prime position to start the movement which will destroy gun control. Yes, destroy gun control.
Here's the reality. Many politicians take us for granted. Many dismiss us. Why? Because we don't show up. We don't sign up. We don't make gun rights something we think about and do something about every day. And because we don't, we are -- in fact -- dismissable.
But when we show up in large numbers at city council meetings and at state legislatures, we stop bad laws and get good ones passed. We simply have to show up, speak up, and pay up.
Or, we can tell our grandchildren about the time when private citizens could own guns. Or we can fear that our grandchildren will turn us in for having unregistered and unlicensed guns.
The future starts November 9, and no matter who is in the White House, we can determine our own future. If only we will.
