A Personal Plea! Join the Fight!

The NRA was one of the key organizations behind the Heller case. There were others, like GOA who filed briefs, but it is the NRA that is taking the lead in attacking equally unconstitutional legislation in cities and states across America. It is a great organization performing an invaluable service, but there will be a lot of battles ahead. If you are not already a member, I urge you to join the NRA. I’m an EPL member (easy pay life), and it has thus far been some of the best money I’ve ever spent.

While we take a moment to bask in the afterglow of the Heller decision, it’s important to remember that we’ve won the battle, but not the war... the fight will go on, our adversary is determined and smugly convinced of the "rightness" of their cause - and that cause is nothing less than the disarmament of the American public and abolition of the Second Amendment.

Fortunately America seems to be waking up one person at a time with fewer and fewer people on the "gun control" bandwagon. There may come a time when the gun control advocates become nothing more than a tiny shrill minority with no political clout, but that time is not today. Unfortunately, they still represent anywhere from 20% to 33% of the American public, and they are STRONGLY funded by individuals like Soros and others. International pressure will continue to grow without fundamental shifts in the political makeup of the UK, EU, Canada and others.

All that has happened today is that by the slimmest of margins the SCOTUS affirmed what we already knew to be true... when the Framers wrote "the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed" they actually MEANT "the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed." Now that our right has been re-affirmed, it is up to us to go out and work to strike down every single law that infringes upon that right. It is up to us to go out and ensure that every politico who doesn't respect our right is defeated. That every referendum proposed by those who would limit our rights is defeated in a landslide.

The price of freedom is eternal vigilance. Our freedom has been affirmed, but it is our duty to ensure that it remains safe. Please join us in the NRA. If possible join other organizations as well – become active. Make your voice heard – together we can make this decision the start of something great to ensure that the America we leave our children and grandchildren is one that we can all be proud of!

Until next time!!!
