We are battling for our countrys future here we need to fight fire with fire.
We need to come up with a series of talking points we all can use to hammer the Left into submission.
Have at it!
What we need it multiple offensive fronts opened up.
At this point I think the states themselves are our only hope.
Talking point: The left believes that the 2nd Amendment protects the rights of criminals to murder, rape, and rob unarmed citizens.
Talking point: The left believes that no one should be allowed to possess firearms, other than the leftists.
Sorry about the formatting.
Everyone should have a fair shot, support the second amendment.
And to paraphrase
Sam Colt, Jefferson said all men are created equal, Sam Colt made it so.
Obama and the Democrats! Bringing the same success they had in Detroit, Philadelphia, Illinois, Maryland, California, Cuba, Venezuela, Greece, Spain, Jonestown, Zimbabwe, etc. to America as a whole!
I like “Gun Control Kills People.”
Good ideas. Especially using terms like Gun Control instead of the usual liberal monikers. Conservatives need to take the lead....and not let “Oppressives” drive the discussion
Too many who profess to be conservative are way too worried about what MSNBC will think.....we see that on issues like Obama Eligibility, Illegal Aliens, Todd Akin, and also 2nd Amendment issues. I prefer your ideas than the usual PhonyCon RINO “Sean Hannity is Great American...so lets do Amnesty”
What the left wants:
YOUR CHILDREN (living or dead)
Stalin and Hitler were for gun control...how’d that turn out?
Talking point: Drugs are already illegal. How’s that working out?
Find just a few choice sentences of the good writing here at FR and include those in these letters.
You do not have to win the argument, as much as you have to present to each of those elected officials, a simple set of statements.
Call or go see your friends, and ask them to do the same.
I recommend sending this in a letter:
Various wordings of the Second Amendment were tried during its development. The end result *purposefully* leaves out any enumeration of reasons why an individual has the right to keep and bear Arms. Any reason *why* an individual may or may not keep and bear Arms, was left to the states and the people thereof, to settle among themselves.
The only enumeration in the Second Amendment focuses on what to do about a group of men under Arms - what is to happen when individuals who bear military grade Arms are in a group, and they *are* capable of exercising martial power. What *then,* was to become of that power?
The answer was, that both the states and the federal government would rely upon *the group* being formally mustered, well-regulated, well trained to Arms, well discplined, and answerable to civilian authority.
Both the states and the federal government sought unity of function and preparedness of the militia of each state. The state militiae should be "well trained to Arms" and be capable of, and mindful of, lawfully exercising martial power and respecting lawful civilian authority.
The Founding Fathers correctly anticipated that any enumerated conditions for individuals, might be used as grounds for an individual to either, be forced to bear Arms, or, be stripped of their Arms. As was the case so many times leading to wars in England and on the continent.
Explanations are plentiful throughout history, Why the people must retain a balance of military power un-infringed by, and out of reach of, government and particularly a national government.
We will not surrender our right to possess a balance of power against the tide of ever-increasing government powers and nationalizing socialist police state tendencies; nor will we surrender our rights and our means for defending our selves, our families, our property, and our liberty.
Not a talking point, but a good reference.
I should add, when I say “You do not have to win the argument ...” I mean, do not fret about whether or not your effort is of any use.
You must right now, set aside any self-doubt habits of yours, and then load and fire off some basic, well-written letters.
Gun control Works ~> ask the 500 dead per year in Chicago
I’m fighting bullying ~> one double-tap ,each , in my home
We arm the Islamicists and the Cartels ,
but we disarm the innocent at home !
Safety is defending myself , or waiting 8 minutes for the police to investigate.
Self Defense is as reasonable now as it was in 1776
I am an infidel and I grease my gun with pork fat
Leftists think it’s OK to kill babies - and do.
“Gun control kills people”
Excellent! Keep it going.
The Progressives Oppress Liberty.
