As I spend a fortune writing,calling and volunteering for pro-gun candidates,and meeting with state senators,congressmen and representatives...I see complacent,inactive,hoodwinked gunowners ignoring the battle to protect the second amendment.Most seem more concerned with buying trinkets and doo-dads for their guns than they do about the second amendment.While we gloat over the thought of buying pre-ban configuration guns,the anti-gunners are mobilizing,reaching the media,and getting an overwhelming head start on us.Wake up.

Where are you seeing these gun owners? All of my shooting buddies are as politically active as I am.

Thank GOD,somebody cares!! Try the NRA-ILA website.They give addresses and#'s for politicians in all 50 states.Also,check out www.AWbansunset.com Keep in mind,when you write these guys,check your spelling and use good manners...nobody wants to get cussed out and humiliated. GUNSHOWS...rent a 20 dollar table and do not worry about the guys that laugh at you.Those neophites cannot be reached.Good luck...fight the good fight.

It's interesting to me that you come here and make the assumption that we are all: I see complacent,inactive,hoodwinked gunowners ignoring the battle to protect the second amendment.Most seem more concerned with buying trinkets and doo-dads for their guns than they do about the second amendment.While we gloat over the thought of buying pre-ban configuration guns,the anti-gunners are mobilizing,reaching the media,and getting an overwhelming head start on us.Wake up. I'll tell ya what partner when you catch up to me and my personal letter writing campain, call me. Here's a quarter. Oh and try figuring out where your space bar is on your keyboard. [;D] [:D]

I understand your feelings, and there are those that fit your description, but I think it is wrong of you to generalize and lump everyone into that group, cause if you do, you are wrong. Personally, I contribute to the NRA-ILA (though they do NOTHING for NFA owners), my state's senator and representatives are very pro-gun and are active in the fight, I spread the word and dispell the myths as best I can, but most importantly - [b]I VOTE EVERY CHANCE I GET![/b]. I take offense at being grouped in with the others, sir. BTW, I don't trust Jesus, I take personal action myself.

I am not much one for giving money, but I do vote every election and call/write/e-mail my Congressman and Senators. Sometimes I even lie and call/write/e-mail the Congressman from other districts. I also advise not to ignore your local reps, CCW passed in Colorado this year and other anti-gun issues went down because of good pro-gun voter turnout.

Sure are taking a lot of credit there. I was writing letters long before I ever heard of you. [>:/]

Mind telling ua a little about yourself, since you know so much about us and how all we do is buy do-dads for our guns. You came to the wrong site to [:K]. Very gun pro-active here, so tread lightly. I vote, write letters, contribute, and get all the neigbors I can to go out and shoot with me. I'm trying to infect as many as I can with that damn black rifle disease. [;)]

Hey Jesus freak ever hear the term "preaching to the converted?" You didn't fire up anyone we have been fired up and still are. Doesn't your God teach you not to judge? I do plenty politically AND buy doo-dads for my guns. So go say 10 Hail Marys and get over yourself.

I would say anyone like that has probably just gotten sick of fighting this never ending, losing battle. We can't win in the courts even though we have right on our side. Slowly but surely we will lose, unless our little cold war turns into a hot one. That's how I see it.

I've been shooting for 35 years.I love GOD and I love guns.GOD gave me a great family and some wealth...I have all a man could want.Not to mention stunning good looks!!!!! No,but seriously,I would like to see more of the gun guys in church getting blessed.I'm sure some of you are believers and know what I mean.Also,I do not call it judgement...it's discernment.
