JWarren 0 Posted March 2, 2007 Report Share Posted March 2, 2007 From my THR post: Something has occured to me. We complain and criticize the choices of Presidential candidates and talk about how we don't have a viable pro-2nd Amendment candidate. That's fine. I do it too. However, Zumbogate made me realize something. We HAVE power, and we HAVE a voice. All of us (I hope) have been active in defending our 2nd Amendment Rights in the form of writing sponsors (Zumbogate) and writing Congress men and women (HR 1022). That is a great start to our building a strong voice in the coming 2008 elections. We MUST continue this momentium. It's occured to me that there is a LOT more that we can do. Have any of us contacted the presidential candidates themselves? Whether you are going to support a candidate or not, it is important that they know your position on the 2nd Amendment. Let them know why you will support them or why they WILL NOT have your support. You better believe that other organizations are doing this and brokering deals. We are a grass-roots movement that is fortunate enough to have a few organizations on our side such as the NRA, GOA, JPFO, etc. Add a grass-roots voice to those voices as well! Make them SEE how many of us are out there. Make them realize that we ARE NOT some small, fringe group.
