Notice that in the title I said rights, not just gun rights. The attack on the Second Amendment is foremost on our minds because it is the thing we all like, our guns and shooting. Just remember it is not just gun rights that are under attack but also every right that the Bill of Rights protects. Along with many that are mostly unspoken and people don’t really think about.
Just what are some of the things we can do to help keep our GOD given rights?
1. Spread the word, sense many people really have a lack of knowledge of just what there rights are, you should learn them you’re self and make them known to as many as possible.
2. Post on boards that allow political comments, start a web page and post to it the stuff you wright and/or understand to be rights. Make sure that it is a right and not wishful thinking.
3. Start a Blog with the same intent as the web site.
4. Write as many congressmen, senators, and representatives as possible, showing support for pro-rights and no supports for anything that violate rights. It makes deference even if they are anti-gun/anti-rights; it lets them know where you stand. Do not offer threats except that you will not show them any support at the polls next time they come up for re-election. “Make it known”
5. Vote but vote for the right person, make each incumbent plainly state what they believe were the Second Amendment goes. Do not except, “well I support the Second Amendment, because even the brady bunch says that and we know they are against the private gun ownership.
Here is an example that David Codrea from War on Guns put together is being posted to all incumbents when he can, it is also supported by GOA.
1. Do you believe that the Constitution is the "supreme law of the land" and that the Bill of Rights acknowledges our birthrights?
2. If so, should these rights be proactively protected from infringement by all levels of government, including city, county and state?
3. Please give some examples of gun laws you consider constitutional.
4. Please give some examples of gun laws you consider unconstitutional.
5. Does the right to bear arms include the right for any peaceable citizen to carry them concealed without a permit, as in Vermont?
6. Do you believe that Americans have a right to own, use and carry weapons of military pattern, and will you use the prestige of elected office to publicly promote that right?
7. Do you support or oppose registration of weapons? Why?
8. Do you support or oppose licensing requirements to own or carry firearms?
9. What specific gun laws will you work to get repealed?
10. If elected, will you back your words of support for firearms rights up with consistent actions? How?
You can see examples of candidate’s responses with this one.
NY gubernatorial candidate Warren Redlich answers gun rights questionnaire
Make is clear that there will be no support for any candidate that is anti-gun/anti-rights, or that says I support the Second amendment, “BUT”
6. Attend rallies in support of gun rights, along with joining a local gun club/range.
7. Run for office especially against any one who is anti-gun/anti-rights.
There are other things that can be done, and I hope others will list them here because I only got one brain cell working right now and cannot think of much else.
