    I see a lot of posts on Facebook supporting 2a rights. I see a lot of responses on this forum about supporting 2a rights. Obviously.

    But what are you doing to protect your right as an American citizen? How many people actually go out and rally for their 2a right?

    I'm just curious how many people physically do something to defend the 2a other than sit at a keyboard and type their stance for others to see.

    I myself haven't done anything, but I want to know what we can do. Tell me what we should be do to stop this historical tragedy from happening to our country and our rights.

    NRA or another group is our best defense without civil unrest.

    I have wrote letters to my state and federal reps every week. Emailed them to about anybody I thought mattered.

    For those interested, would be great of everyone did this, here is a website that sends a letter in your name to the appropriate legislators voicing your concern about the new proposed gun laws. I'm going to give it a shot.

    We support the NRA and other groups and we write our reps. We remind them what Gun Owners did to Democrats in the mid term elections following the first AWB. We remind them what Gun Owners did to Al Gore's presidential ambitions after he cast the tie breaking vote in the Senate for the original AWB and was then stupid enough to campaign on a National Gun Owner ID card.

    We remind them that failing us means at a minimum, there job, and if pushed too far, possibly much much more. ;)

    Remember, WE outnumber THEM... and we have more guns!

    It works wonderfully. I have blasted this out to everyone I know. Cane posted it the other day.

    It will send the letter to your national and local reps along with BO & JB

    i try not to make myself known to the government as an active 2nd amendment supporter. i know they probably know about it. but i am not actively signing petitions because i dont want them to show up in the future saying i am a so called terrorist and screwing me over. i strongly believe the government makes people disappear if they get into the wrong things. thats not gonna be me!

    I feel it is not only my right but an obligation to exorcise my 1st amendment right to express expectations of my elected officials. 2A included.

    Don't take this the wrong way Marlin but that's a little weak.

    There are 80 million US gun owners. I'm sure at least 10% of us are actively standing up in Defense of 2A liberties. If you think bubba Gubmint has the resources to disappear 8 million American Citizens your "tin foil" hat MAY be strapped on a bit too tight! :p

    ...and if you don't think your FTF account has not already been traced back to your IP address...than that same "tin foil" hat is not only too tight, but crooked as well.

    The fact that any forcible disarmament of American Gun Owners is impossible IS THE REASON it's not been attempted.

    Amonymity is dead my friend, you may as well do what you can within the system lest they get bold enough to force action beyond the system. ;)
