Keep up the fight

As gun owners and sportsmen and women, we need to step up to the plate and fight the good fight. Our 2nd Amendment Rights are in more jeopardy, now, than ever before in history. This Administration is more determined to undermine our rights, while at the same time trying to convince us that they believe in and support the 2nd Amendment, than the Clinton Administration.

So what can we do? If you are not an NRA member, now is the time to join and help them keep up fight. If you are a current member, upgrade your membership status. The fight takes a lot of money and commitment. Start writing to your Senators and Congressmen, and also your State Representatives to voice your opinions on the current bills in Congress and State Legislatures.
Write letters to the editor of your local newspapers. If you have a local talk radio station, call in and voice your opinions also. Locally in Springfield, MO, we have KSGF 104.1 Talk Radio. Every Saturday morning from 7-8 am, Central Time, they have the Gun Show with Matt Canovi. If you can't pick up the station you can go to http://www.ksgf.com/ and click on listen live, also you can download Podcasts of previous shows. There are many avenues of support you can join in on. Get active and save our rights. There is a Second Amendment March scheduled for 2010, they want to put 1,000,000 Gun Owners in Washington, DC for a peaceful march in support of our rights.

Current Legislation

Presently there is a Bill in Congress to require licensing
of all persons involved with guns. Not only dealers and
manufacturers, but collectors and private citizens also.
There will be no Grandfather clause, if you own a
weapon you will be licensed or a felon. Private sales
between friends and neighbors will be out, as you will
need to be a dealer to sell or trade a weapon. Also there
will be mandatory records keeping of all sales and
transfers, by the Federal Government. This Bill HR-45
is a serious blow to our 2nd Amendment Rights. We all
need to be in contact with our Senators and
Congressmen about this threat to our freedom.

There are also two other Bills in now, HR-17 and
HR-197 that are Pro-Gun and they need our
support also. Contact your Representatives and let
them know where you stand, regardless of their party
affiliation. I have links to all three bills in the right
column of this blog.

Gun Nuts

The first myth that I would like to debunk is the term, Gun Nuts.
We as shooters, hunters, and gun collectors, have been demonized
for years as threats to society, crazed killers etc.
We are none of these things, the truth is we are ordinary people
with a hobby we are passionate about. I prefer to call us
Gunfighters, because we will use any and all legal means to protect
our Second Amendment Rights. If some yuppie, politically correct
person wishes to put names on us, then they should stick to their
political correctness and call us Firearms Discharge Engineers.
I, for one, am proud of my heritage and if I have to be a Gun Nut,
I will do that proudly.
