I foresee a pushback of epic proportions in the coming weeks, they just awakened a sleeping giant with this.

It may take us a bit to gain our footing, but you best believe that when we do, it'll be on.

I bought my wife a membership, a pistol course to get cc, and put aside money to pay for her state permit. Further than that, I joined OFF here in Oregon, they fight hard .oregon firearm federation.

I'm a lifetime member, donate a fair amount each and every year since joining. But if they cave and bend over now like they did in 94' ... than fuck them!!!


to the NRA ... stand fast, hold your ground, never surrender!

We should all be emailing the NRA as well stating what we expect from them...

Obama has Biden heading a violence study for a month. That will allow things to cool down. The Democrats need to get in front of this in there home districts. Many are in very progun states where they can get hurt. Harry Ried has already backed away from this fight. Ried is from rural Nev. and has a good NRA rating. This is why the Prez did not move right away they are afraid with the bad economy they don't need an other fight.

you have not been paying attention ... gun control advocates have been working on this issue for decades! In a months time you will see a proposed bill that will make the Affordable Care Act look like it was hashed out in a day (another piece of legislation that was decades in the making!)


Make your position known crystal clear to the NRA and you representatives ... any AWB will result in conflict! See if they still want to pick a fight

I have been involved in Gun politics for 50 years. This is all about votes. How effective was the Clinton AWB? Did you ever have a problem buying a clip or a rifle. It had a bilt in kill switch that worked.

if you were a member and let your membership lapse, then renew it, please. a huge number of gun owners represented by the NRA or like minded associations, can send a very clear message to the politicians. WE VOTE! not representing us, as a huge voting block could have a negative impact on your future as a politician. we can vot you out of office and put another in your place.
Good for us! Many people are taking up the call
