Default Activism is No. 1

What it takes to get our message across is for ALL gun owners and pro-2A people to become politically active. If you are a member of any group, forum, club, or lodge that is remotely affiliated with firearms then it is your job to make sure that they preach activism as the primary step in defeating these anti-constitutionalists.

Remember that buying guns and ammunition is not showing your 2A support; it is just making gun and ammo companies richer, it doesn’t do a darn thing to protect your God given rights. Learning about history, shooting, and all that is great and needs to be done but, again, it doesn’t do a thing to get the truth across to the political leadership…activism does.

I don’t care for politics myself and I absolutely despise politicians nevertheless, in case you haven’t noticed, I have had to become political. ICCF has unfortunately become political out of pure necessity. We are in a war, not a shooting war nor a cold war but a war of words, of what is right and everyone has to be a soldier in this war.

The tactics and ammunition in the war of words are simple and easy...phone calls, letters, Emails, and vote.

Some key points to ponder…

> The 2nd Amendment is the only one that guarantees all the others.

> The 2A in not about target shooting, hunting, or even self-protection, it is there to protect the citizens of the United States of America from our own government.

> The people are the militia, not the National Guard. Many legal precedents back this up to include US Supreme Court rulings.

> The Constitution is not and never will be antiquated.

> There are approximately 50 million gun owning households in the USA…we are the biggest minority.

> Knowledge is power…take a few minutes to learn a bit about our Founding Fathers and their mindset when they drafted the Constitution.

> Stop empowering politicians to rule you, they work for us…let them know it.
> There are NO so-called “reasonable” gun control laws.

> We know what’s best for us, not them.

> Once your rights are stolen they will never be returned.

Well said and truer words were never spoken.

Everyone on this forum should be a member of the NRA. If there is a Friends of the NRA in your area, check it out and support it . Better yet join the committee. Half the money the committees raise goes to the NRA to promote shooting sports. The other half stays in the state the committee is in for the same purpose. This is where your shooting ranges get a lot of their funding as well as organizations like youth shooting groups and Boy Scouts. These are our future shooters and 2A supporters. Youth training is absolutely critical to combat the brainwashing they get in the schools. Join the PTA or get on the School Board to fight the gun grabbers. They have joined an gotten elected to these organizations. Check out your City Council and consider running if you dont like what you see. Get involved. Invite your neighbor or a fellow worker to the range if he or she does not shoot. Use 22's so he does not get gun shy. They are a lot of fun and you may win over a voter.

I'm a member of the NRA, GOA, Revolutionary War Veterans of America and the Gun Owners of California. I'd belong to more, but money's too tight for all the dues it would entail.

I'm also a member of the Tea Party and politically active. I don't just cut and paste articles on the webz.

Soon to also begin contributing to the Second Amendment Foundation. They have been very proactive, and successful, along with the NRA on the legislative front.

Let's put it this way...EVERYONE should be politically active, vote and driving you local, state, and federal elected officials crazy with your desires as a Citizen.

Regardless of the organization, join and support some of the more important ones like the GOA, NRA, State Campaign for Liberty, et cetera...

It was not my intent to promote any specific organization, that's for you to decide.

I live in a rather liberal state but in the eastern/central part of Washington many Japanese-americans are suprisingly more conservative than the people from around the seattle area. Much of Washington's history/foundation as it is today was built by immigrants from Japan.

Like any other American, we don't like our freedom messed with. I came to this country for the reason of better and more freedoms that my home country could not offer. Women are also treated more equally here as in Japan, contrary to what foreigners to there are told, are not.
