so yes in many ways, we are a minority. just looking at those figures proves we need to get many more of the gun owners involved and standing with us to help secure what gun rights we have.

i think many may think that just because Trump is in office, and now we have a SC justice that will defend our gun rights, that it's all easy sailing from here on out. while Gorsuch is huge victory, it's not the only one we need to concentrate on. what about the election in 2020? there is no guarantee that Trump will get re-elected. and who knows what the Democrats may pull out of the hat over the next four years. and there is still the possibility that there could be two possible seats on the SC in the next few years.

no, if anything, we need to double down and get more people involved in the NRA to secure our gun rights. not so much for ourselves, but our children, and our grandchildren.

Scroll down to the NRA Revenue chart.

Not only are the $dollars involved rather pathetic, the downward trend if very disturbing.
