    Note I just sent to the Brady Campaign

    My little Devil horns were sticking out, so I had to engade in a little mischief. Below is a copy of a note I just emailed off to shootfirst.org:

    Dear Sir or Ma'am;

    I was wondering if I could convice you to spend some of your advertising money here in Colorado.

    I've seen pictures of the billboards, newspaper ads and leaflets your organization has been putting out.

    Since we have the same deadly-force provisions here is Colorado as they do in Florida, and in fact have had them much longer, I thought you might want to let people know about them as well.

    Anything you could do would be a big help in letting criminals know their activities won't be tolerated here either.

    Sincerely,

    <name & location deleted>

    Hey, maybe they WILL start putting up billboards in States (where it's true) announcing the (to them) deplorable fact that scumbags might legally get shot if they try to hurt innocent people.....we can hope!

    A fine effort, tanksoldier.

    Maybe they'll even write you back. Please do let us know!

    Little Devil horns? I like that!

    Good job, tanksoldier!

    That's the one.

    Really not a bad sign at all. They started with the "blood running in the streets" BS. Saw a quote from a Fla Congresscritter or somesuch worried that children trick-or-treating would be blown away while standing on peoples' doorsteps. When that didn't pan out I guess they tried to be more subtle.

    Okay,

    You got me cranked up on this and here's the one that I just sent:

    Dear Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence,

    I would like to thank you for your campaign in Florida. You have put the criminals on notice that the public will not cower to them.

    It's amazing that everywhere right to carry laws have been put in place, the violent crime rate has dropped. In addition, there are not any more deaths due to guns. I can't believe that you don't push this statistic within your organization.

    Conversely, everywhere that guns are banned and confiscated, violent crimes rates have gone up. Theses are indisputable facts and I'm not using any fuzzy math to support my position.

    Sincerely,

    They've never replied to my thank-you letter about the Florida billboards.

    You'd think if they really believed their propaganda, they would try not to be so rude to an armed-and-dangerous Floridian....

    If they believed thier propaganda they'd all live in D.C. where they would be "Safe".

    Lets hope that the Brady Bunch will continue to spend there advertising dollars wisely and erect more signs in other states as they did for Florida.

    Here is an e-mail I sent them:



    While driving to Florida this weekend to visit my family, I noticed a sign on the side of the freeway reminding criminals that Florida residence have the right to defend themselves. I applaud you for your efforts in keeping citizens safe by warning criminals that their evil ways will not be tolerated. As a residence of Louisiana, I would like to ask for your assistance in my state as well. As you know, crime has been on the rise since Katrina hit our shores, and I think that a friendly reminder to criminals that Louisiana also has a "shoot the intruder" law on the books would be helpful in stemming the violence. Also, Louisiana is a "shall issue" state and a Louisiana citizen only needs to get the proper training to receive their Concealed Weapons Permit. As a permit holder myself, I know that I feel safer walking the streets, and would like others to have the same feeling of safety. Again, thank you for your efforts. Since the Florida law came out and your signs have come up, crime has indeed gone down.

    PS: Other members of my family live near Washington DC, a very anti-gun city. As you know, crime there is out of control. After we get the laws changed there, I would love to see one of your signs on the Beltway. Keep up the good work. With an orginization like yours, reminding criminals that they will not be tolerated, there will be less dead criminals to deal with.

    And if you ever receive a postage-paid envelope from them, be certain to mail a copy of this email back to them in it!
