Clint, I agree with you 100 percent on joining the NRA and writing letters.  I would add also join GOA.  It is only $20 a year and is another strong voice for us.  However I am ambivalent about the Convention of States.  How do we control what changes are made?  How do we know that only the changes we want will be made?  On the Second Amendment, I agree that there is little or no likelihood that it would be taken off the books.  But it doesn't have to be taken off the books to be rendered meaningless and useless.  If Hillary had been elected, she would have appointed a rabid socialist like herself to the Supreme Court.  That would have given the socialists a 5-4 majority.  And in eight years of Hillary, she would probably have had the opportunity to appoint one or two more justices.  We could easily have ended up with a 7-2 socialist majority.  Then it would have been at least 40 or 50 years if ever before we would have had a conservative ruling from the Court.  All they would have had to do was run a case to the Court and have the Second Amendment declared not an individual right.  Then only the government would have the right to have guns.  During her campaign Hillary said the Court made a mistake when they declared the Second Amendment was an individual right.  And she vowed that when she was elected she would fix that.

I have been out of State with no real connection so I am behind in my reading. I know what Charles is thinking. If we lose our second amendment we will never get it back. It will never happen. Here is why. To abolish any amendment it takes 75% of the House and Senate to vote this to a starting point. Then 75% of the States, not population based, have to ratify. That means 13 States say no and then it is no. Right now we have about 44 States will say no. To modify our rights with restrictions is possible but will be by States like the Ultra Liberal California has done with the AR. There are several things we can do to protect our right to keep and bear arms but here are three of the big ones.

 

  1. Join the NRA. Sign up your sons, daughters, grandkids and great grandkids.
  2. Join the drive to compel the forming of the Convention of States( Article V). Read about this at:

https://conventionofstates.com/

                Read up about this move. It has been started by Constitutional minded people like Mark Levin. Go

                to their Face Book Page, groans here, like and follow. In this way you will be up to date.

  1. Write a letter, hand written is best, to your U.S. Congressman and Senator. Calls and emails have little effect but if you write a “letter”…..remember these….they have to handle it, open it, and write one back to you. And…and if you want to cause real concern, ask at least four questions using bullet points. This means they can’t use their “rat-hole” mass answer letter to reply to yours.

 

So if you are serious about our Second Amendment then this is what you do. In Oklahoma, where I live, our Federal Representatives and Senators know how we feel. To prove this point…Oklahoma was the ONLY State wherein not a single county voted for Obama in either election. We are the Crimson State and Proud of it.

Yes Jan there is a long term plan here and it is very sad.  The socialists have an ultimate goal of destroying America and turning it into the USSR, the United States Socialist Republic.  America and full socialism cannot coexist.  They are totally incompatible.  Every country that has gone full socialist has brought nothing to the people but poverty and loss of freedom.  Just look at Cuba, the old USSR (Russia), North Korea, and China.  Why does anyone think socialism would work any better here than in any of those countries?  The one thing standing in the way of the socialists converting America into the USSR is our well armed populous.  That is why their long term goal is to disarm the people.  If they can get H. R. 5087 passed and into law, they will have taken a giant step in that direction.  And if they get it, they will not stop.  They will immediately start working on the next step.  They know they can do it all at once.  They are incrementalists.  They take whatever they can get whenever they can get it.  What ever you give them, they always come back for more.  That is why you can't compromise with them.  You have to fight them every step of the way.

Charles,

I think there is a long term plan here.  I have a single shot 22 (or a couple LOL).  That will be his next step.  By years end Donnie wants a pump 20 gauge in the safe and a semi auto also.  Whether the bans get to those points before he is old enough to be gifted the guns or not, we will be ahead of the game for him to have them and hunt.  I cannot believe this country is in such a state that I have to be able to see years into the future to secure my grandsons rights.

I read an article a friend wrote recently that said, if we don not stand up now we will leave our grandchildren with nothing to stand up for.  That is one the truest and saddest statements I have heard in quite some time

I just read the text of House Bill H.R.5087.  If this monstrosity becomes law, the anti freedom, anti gun socialists will have made a gigantic leap forward in their agenda.  And remember you can't depend on the Republicans or Trump to kill it.  Both have shown they will cave.  The bill pretty much bans AR15's and many similar guns.  The bill contains a very long list of what is banned.  What makes the bill even more onerous is that it lists what we are allowed to own.  Now if you read the bill it seems like a long list of what we are allowed to own.  But look at it this way.  If you want to want something that is not on that approved list, whether it is a rifle, shotgun, or pistol, whether it is rim fire or center fire, whether it is semiautomatic, bolt action, pump action, lever action,or single shot, you will not be allowed to buy it.  And after the next shooting and there will be a next shooting no matter what laws are passed, I can hear them saying,"It wasn't enough.  We must register those semi automatics. We must know who has them."  And once they have that approved list, it will be a simple matter to drop guns off it a few at a time until we have almost nothing left.

So this bill makes it imperative for all gun owners to join GOA and/or NRA.  If we are going to beat this back, we must go on the offense!

Here is the link to the bill.

Jan, if it isn't too much for you, I would recommend buying two guns for him now.  I would get a single shot .22 rifle and a Ruger 10/22 semi automatic rifle.  When you feel he is ready give him the single shot.  When he proves himself with it, give him the 10/22.

The reason I say this is because part of the push now is to ban semi automatic rifles and pistols.  I don't think they can get that now but they will keep trying.  After the next shooting and there will be a next shooting no matter what laws they pass, who knows what they will be able to push through.

Just a side note here.  Semi automatic rifles have been around since 1885, semi automatic pistols since 1892.  So why have these mass shootings only become prominent in recent times?  Just ask yourself, what has changed in this country in the last 30 or 40 years?

Charles,

You are correct, eventually they will come for everything it is how they have done it in the UK.  They even just slid another gun law in place that no one knew was coming.

When they finished with the guns they have gone after the knives.

I do not want to see us join in the slip and slide down hill they want to do.

I am actually thinking of buying my 10 year old grandson his first rifle.  I wouldn't let him use it yet, he needs to get better with the BB's first.  I am afraid by the time I start buying what he can use I wont be able too :(

so what am I looking for this summer?

Listen folks, I think very few gun owners really realize how much jeopardy our Second Amendment rights are in right now.  The anti freedom, anti gun socialists are in full bore attack mode.  They realize they have a golden opportunity.  And I believe they will make big gains.  Some of the restrictions I see coming are raising the age to buy a rifle from 18 to 21, limiting magazine capacity to five rounds, requiring a background check for private sales, and anything else they can push through now.  I think they will try to ban AR15's and their clones but I don't think they can get that right now.  But after the next shooting, who knows?  And there will be a next shooting because guns are not the problem.  And we can't depend on Trump and the Republicans because both have shown they will cave.

It has been said that the best defense is a good offense.  People, we gun owners have got to go on offense  I think every gun owner who doesn't belong to one or the other of the NRA or Gun Owners of America (GOA) should be ashamed.  I belong to both.  It only costs $20 dollars a year to join GOA and they take a lot of the work out of writing and emailing congress and the president.

Don't think just because they are not going after your favorite gun now that they won't go after it in the future. The socialist ultimate goal is the elimination of guns in private hands.  They know they can't accomplish that all at once.  They are incrementalists.  They take whatever they can get whenever they can get it.  They are in it for the long haul.  They also never waste a good crisis.  They have no problem with taking a horrific event and using it for political purposes.

I posted something just three posts down but I am going to repeat it here because it is so important

"The population of the US in 2016 was 323 million.  In 2013 Pew Research conducted a poll.  In that poll 37% of Americans said they or someone in their household owned a gun.  Just taking 33% or 1/3 of only 300 million, that would make at least 100 million gun owners in this country.  If we could get just 20% or one out of five of them to join GOA, as close as elections are now in this country, we could control every election.  Just think what we could do with a voting block of 20 million voters!  With only five million members, the NRA is considered the strongest lobbying group in Washington."

I know by now most of you in this group have heard that Remington filed bankruptcy this week.

Well this article sure has some good news

(Reuters) - U.S. gunmaker Remington Outdoor Co has obtained commitments for nearly $300 million from its existing lenders, including some of the biggest U.S. banks, after new sources of funding dried up in the months leading up to its filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. U.S. banks provide rescue financing for gunmaker Remington
