If we want to keep our guns, we need to get involved. Great read on how to fight for your rights!

By Rob Morse

We have a million new gun owners each month.  Welcome, but there is more to being a gun owner than buying ammunition.  Democrat politicians recently proposed ridiculous regulations on guns and gun owners.  Gun sales soared, but I think that is the wrong response.  Gun owners need to get political to protect their rights.

If a politician said they were going to come and confiscate your water would you go buy jugs of water?   If a politician said money was evil and they were going to come and take your money, would you go take your cash out of the bank?  No, you would run the politician out of office so fast and so hard that they would have to leave the state.

I’m a gun owner.  I understand the impulse to buy a gun once democrat politicians said they will infringe on that right. I get it, but buying a gun isn’t enough to defend your rights to keep and bear arms. We can’t stop political oppression by indulging ourselves at the sporting goods store. We need to fight politicians with political activism.  I have, and now I’m begging you to join me.  I’m pleading with you.

Stop indulging yourself at the gun stop.  Register to vote instead.  Yes, the first step is that easy.

Now keep going.  Spend some of your money on political ammunition rather than lead and brass.  Join the groups who defend your right of self-defense.  Join the NRA and its affiliated gun group in your state.  Join the Second Amendment Association, Gun Owners of America, and Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership.  Each group brings something different to the table.  I belong to every one of them.

Now I’m going to get personal. Please start listening to your politicians.  Let them know when they are right, and when they are wrong.  You can do it from your phone.  Find a pro-gun politician you can support.  Please donate to him and get on his mailing list.
