It’s a very good thing I hadn’t taken a sip of my drink yet, or else I would be cleaning up a huge mess right now.
You’re very right. If it wasn’t true, it would be hilarious.
Yep, that’s funny. (I think I’ve met these guys.)
I’m also afraid that my pillow might try to kill me one night or my toothbrush may attempt to jam itself in my windpipe.
What does science call people who think that objects have minds of their own, wing-nuts?….no Liberals, that’s the ticket!
Liberalism really is a mental condition.
The sadist truism is that the only way to fix stupid is a bullet to the head….
Write to your Congress RepsDear Senator/Congressman XXXXX,
This letter is in reference to any legislation currently being introduced in the House/Senate that would further infringe on every American’s constitutionally protected right to keep & bear arms. I demand that you OPPOSE any & all measures aimed at stripping away our freedoms in the name of “gun control.”
I have decided that I am now a one-issue voter. I do this because I’m a law-abiding citizen who is sick and tired of having his rights stripped away by people that are ignorant on the subject. Those that take the time to study the issue of “gun control” know that when you restrict the right to self-defense from lawful citizens, crime actually increases in those areas. This is because by definition, criminals do not obey the law (if they did, they would not be criminals.) I do not believe that restrictive “gun control” measures have ever saved a life. In point of fact, & as seen on the campus of Virginia Tech., “gun control” actually costs lives!
I want to be perfectly clear here… elected officials and political candidates who support ANY form of restrictive gun control WILL LOSE MY VOTE and the votes of my family members. Please do your part to cast the flawed concept of “gun control” on to the ash heap of failed ideas.
Best regards, copy this and send.
DC runs on money and lots of it, the only way to influence a congress critter is money. Either giving them support or threatening to give it to their next opponent is pretty much the only way to get support. Send money to your favorite gun rights .org or like I do spread it around. If all of us (gun owners) sent the price of one magazine to the NRA or GOA or whoever you think does the best job influencing lawmakers, we could win easy. Not saying don’t write but that check will get us some clout in the money hungry .gov we have today.
We need to do both – they want to be re-elected so if enough people let them know that they will vote for the other candidate if they don’t vote the way we want them to in congress.
Join the NRA and GOA and if possible send both a $20 – $100 donation. Also do everything you can to get others to do the same. We all need to get off of our rear and stop think that someone else will do it – we are someone else…
Yes, I’m on board with doing all we can including writing your representatives. I just think some folks think the letter writing campaign will be enough and I for one don’t think that will cut it. Back in 94 I wrote letters but did not send much in the way of money and I regretted that later. I had a similar experience as this guy,
for a long time all I did was keep my NRA membership because they owned the competitive shooting classifications. No membership, no classification and that made it almost impossible to enter large/sanctioned matches.
By all means, write letters but don’t forget to send money if you can. If we all do a small bit maybe we can avoid the 94 disaster (or worse) this time around. At least this time we know what can happen, I didn’t really believe they would win last time, this time I know better and will take action early and often.
Many thanks to you MD for all you do, I think blogs like yours and others will make a big difference this time around.
Some of us need help. Supporting financially an opponent to Feinstein, Boxer, Pelosi or Thompson here in Kalifornia is a waste of time! What I have done in most elections is find candidates in other states and sent $$ to fund their campaigns where there is a chance of success. And it has worked! I will send $$ to the NRA and the GOA, but as far as candidates that can be reached or present members of Congress that we should support on this, I am not clear. Advice please? The only member of both houses presently doing any good back there from here is Darrell Issa and I have no idea how feels on this particular issue….
Good letter, makes too much sense.
Due to the short attention span of politicians and the volume of correspondence, the letter needs to be shortened. Leave 1st paragraph as is. Take out the second. They don’t need the arguments. they already know them, even if they deny them. Third paragraph start at “Any support of ANY …”. Add that you will donate $ and time to their opponent.
Oh, and send a copy of the cartoon with the letter. They may actually read that.
I don’t care who you are…That right there’s funny.
Oh wait, Libtarts might not think it’s funny BUT, Thinking people likely think that IS funny.
Sometimes the truth hurts.
It’s my understanding that the Bushmaster Rifle used at Sandy Hook was illegal to sell or possess in the state of Connecticut. Does anyone know? And how did this guy’s mom get the rifle if it was illegal to buy? A lot of this just doesn’t make any sense to me.
My favorite quote on gun control comes from Carrol O’Conner, as Archie Bunker…
Gloria: Do you know that sixty percent of all deaths in America are caused by guns?
Archie: Would it make you feel any better, little girl, if they was pushed out of windows?
Red….funny, but I think he said…
pushed out of a tenth story window ……but …..same ending …I guess!
Actually… it’s still funny. It’s just sad that it’s true.
Feinstein packed a concealed weapon in the 70s because she was under terrorist threat and now she wants us to give up our guns. It caused such paranoia that she stopped seeing reality. That’s what happens to people who live in real fear. She needs to stop thinking what she is because she is wrong and her plans are totally unsound. She either needs to get her fear under control and quit blaming those who are not at fault or move to a deserted island where, when the fear totally consumes her every waking moment, she can throw coconuts and bananas at the attackers. Paranoid hypocrisy will never suit this nation.
She was in City Hall and RIGHT THERE when the Harvey Milk thing went down. Can’t believe that the old bat never has taken a hard look at the mental condition of people that do these crazy shootings! I have to wonder if she could have done something/heard something/saw something that could have prevented the Harvey Milk thing and as a result, she can’t look hard at the mental issues and blames the gun because she can’t hold her herself responsible for not speaking up and preventing the mess.
SW I must agree with you
When are we going to change the language….(like the liberals do) these are DEFENSE weapons, NOT assault weapons….?
Play the game folks!
