Stay focused and take action!

There have been a lot of posts on what is happening around us, and some of us have been very active in trying to influence the outcome. But what would happen if everyone was active? Most read posts, some respond, but it's like preaching to the choir.

I must say that after reading messages daily on this site and others, I have been as frustrated reading some of OUR posts as I am reading about what the liberals and media are trying to do to take away more of our fundamental rights. I have read so many messages from people saying they've already got what they need, or they will buy what they need now before the laws change, rather than understanding that we can't let the laws change! Infuriating!

I personally have had conversations daily with people I know, and even people I don't know, to make sure they understand what is truly at stake here, not just Gun Control, but Government Control. It doesn't stop with Guns!

I have sent numerous letters to government officials (I have never done this before in my life and I am 52!):

State Congress
State Senate
US Congressmen
US Senators
VP Biden
President Obama

This is a serious issue, not just because of possible limitations on Guns, but limitations on our rights that are guaranteed by the Constitution. Rights, not privileges. There is a big difference. These rights are what makes the USA the USA, and not some other country.

Apathy will have a huge negative impact on the outcome of this challenge, similar to voter apathy. People think "my vote doesn't really matter because there are millions of votes", and they think "my letter doesn't matter because no one will read it", but if enough people think that way, we get what we get, whether it be in our elected leaders, or in the controls pushed upon us, like gun control. (I still can't believe the election outcome after such a miserable record of poor leadership - I would have been fired if I did so poorly in my job)

So read these posts to get inspired, not just informed, and DO SOMETHING about it!
