What principles do your local elected officials hold? Start there, if they do not match your principles then vote them out.
Unfortunately there are people who, Though they may oppose new gun laws, will vote for someone who opposes their view on the topic as a trade off to what they feel is more important.
This is where we come into play.
If there is anyone out there , reading these post, if you are making an effort to change minds and engaging the anti-gunners thanks and keep it up because i am seeing progress and you will too if you haven't yet.
If you are not, don't just hang among the like minded, go change minds!
