I'm certainly not bashful about sharing the honest intent of the founders when they penned the Second Ammendment...nor am I bashful about pointing out the insurection and full blown revolution such an act would provoke.
With that said, were such a petition to fall short of the estimated 80,000,000 gun owners signatures, it would be viewed by our adversaries as a good sign and proof that we are in fact...a bunch of paper tigers.
Combine that belief with the number of responses here of members who would not sign such a petition for fear of retaliation...and I think that any turnout would be portrayed as fringe radicals and proof of the need for more government action.
...as if being a member of FTF does not already have all of us on someones list.
Personally, I believe that Liberals are no different than the playground bully we all dealt with as children...and they are best disuaded by honestly letting them know that looking your way WILL result in a azz whooping.
Of course like the playground bully, telling them will not suffice...we will have to bloody a few noses for the message to sink in...so be ready and remember, our strategy is NOT to punch first, but to counter punch effectively.
