November 15, 2018    A bit of Politics

Motivation and Commitment

It’s time for a “Come to Jesus” talk in the gun rights world, and it’s not going to be pleasant. I have something to say, and it won’t take long.

 

It’s time to review our and your motivation and commitment. We just lost an important fight in Washington state when I-1639 was voted in by the public. This repressive measure puts into place a number of restrictions, from increased age limits to buy a gun, to branding semi-auto squirrel rifles “assault weapons” and making it more difficult to buy them. 

These same restrictions are being introduced into every state legislature and into the U.S. Congress.

 

Each of us must do a serious review of our motivations on gun rights. We have to review and reflect on our level of commitment.  Here’s why.   We are losing. 

We are losing our rights in state after state. We are losing in the courts. (This may change with the new Supreme Court, but don’t count on it.) We are the good guys. We don’t commit crimes.  Yet we are being branded as the crazies just because we like to own and shoot guns responsibly.  

 

Make no mistake. We are losing, and it’s because so many gun owners are on the sidelines. Sure, they are cheering on the NRA, but they won’t take a day off work to go the state legislature. They won’t write a check for $100 to the NRA each year. They have never actually called or emailed a politician about gun rights. That’s a guaranteed recipe for failure.

What’s amazing about this is that it’s just so easy. Join the NRA. Sign up a family member. Right now. Give five NRA memberships as Christmas gifts. CLICK TO JOIN

 

Oh. You don’t like the NRA? Well, suck it up, Buttercup, because that’s where the fight is, and if you aren’t there, you are AWOL. Pull up your Big Boy pants and get on board.   The Second Amendment Foundation does a great job in the courts, and I encourage everyone to help out with memberships and donations, but we simply don’t have any more time to screw around.   Billionaire bucks are shifting the tide. We. Are. Losing. Even SAF says you should support the NRA. CLICK TO JOIN SAF

 

And please spare me with the “we are the real no-compromise lobby” groups. Nonsense. Ineffective. A waste of your money. It’s like peeing on yourself while wearing dark pants. It gives you a warm feeling, but no one notices.

So-called “red flag” laws passed in states are sending the police to pound on doors, to take away guns after a family member, educator, or someone, makes a complaint. Just last week that resulted in the police shooting and killing a man in his home in Maryland. They are passing laws which make it possible and legal for the police to come take ALL your guns.

 

Where are you? What’s your level of commitment. Time and money. That’s it. Time and money.

 

I know we are at a tipping point. If millions of gun owners don’t get motivated and fully committed right now, we will continue to lose, and trust me when I say that these measures being passed will never be repealed. 

If you are not in the fight, we will lose. ~ Tom
