Howdy,

Please sign this petition asking the ACLU to give equal weight and recognition to the Second Amendment. The text of the petition explains both my position as well as the ACLU's and challenges them to get with the times. My goal is 250,000 signatures. Your help is sorely needed. Feel free to email the URL to your shooting buddies, post it on other forums, as appropriate, and in general, challenge people to stand up for themselves.

THANKS! -Rod-

Thanks for the sigs. I'm ASTOUNDED by the sheer number of people on this board. It's kinda mind-boggling. Keep those signatures coming :) -Rod-

PS...I assume that avitars are only for team members?

Dude, as an ACLU member, and good friends with some of the higher-ups in the ACLU organization, let me just tell you now that IT AINT GONNA HAPPEN ! (I'm not saying this in a confrontational or meanspirited way, but as helpful advice)

Personally, I commend your effort, and your intent is great, but you're wasting your time with the ACLU on this one. There are just too many hippies, liberals and anti-gun folks in the ACLU to make any headway on this issue.

Your time would be better spent trying to influence organizations that actually MIGHT care.



(also, you might want to copy-edit the petition, since there are some grammatical errors in it, and that comes across as unprofessional and makes it easier for people to dismiss you)

Looks like we've added about 50 signatures today. Keep up the good work...and don't let the doomsayers make up your mind for you. With enough signatures we can make the ACLU look like the bad guy in the public's eye. But that is purely up to them! -Rod-

Pissin' in the wind, fellas. Pissin' in the wind.

You might as well be yappin' yer flapper at the doornob on your basement door.

Take the two minutes and call your US Rep and/or Senator instead.

Sorry for the hijack.

Agreed, our time would be better spent if we took a few minutes to write a letter to our Rep & Senators. Like DK-Prof said, there is no way the ACLU will ever consider the 2nd Amendment an important issue.

Ah what the hell, I like pissing into the wind

We're past 300. Keep em coming!

Your representative will never actually read your letter BTW. It's a checkmark on a piece of paper showing pro's and con's on an issue. That too, is pissing into the wind, but hey, the wind changes. We can piss in more than one direction . Sign on!
