    From My Cold Dead Hands Is Not Enough
    Posted on May 15, 2012 by Ammoland

    New Jersey --(Ammoland.com)- Often when I speak about the Second Amendment, the right to keep and bear arms, and what actions we need to take in order to preserve our rights, I am rebuked with the apathetic response, “From my cold dead hands.”

    .....(snip)..........

    If everyone who is willing to mouth the words “from my cold dead hands” was willing to do three things, we could go a long way towards preserving our Second Amendment rights.

    Pick up the phone and call your representatives. The voice of gun control advocates is loud in our nation’s capital, and unfortunately, the voice of gun owners is quiet. We need to raise our voices so that our representatives know the Second Amendment is not to be infringed.

    Join at least one Second Amendment Society. These organizations are our voice and work tirelessly to protect our rights. They need our support, and they need their membership levels to reflect the number of gun owners in this country in order to be credible.

    This year commit to finding one new person was has never shot a gun, put a gun in their hand, and get them involved in the shooting sports. Some estimates put gun ownership in the United States at about 50 percent. As we increase that proportion, pressure for gun control goes away.

    It will take much more than this to preserve our rights, but it’s a good start and will be far more effective than promising to die for the preservation of the Second Amendment.

    This is absolutely critical. The anti-gun media promotes an image of guns as going off by themselves and people think being around one is akin to juggling nitroglycerin, and for people brainwashed into this, gun control seems very sensible.

    Take a newb to the range, show them how to operate a gun, how to unload and confirm it is empty, and generally take the mystery out of it, and guns will start to look more like what they are, tools, rather than random death machines.

    My retention holster isn't to prevent a gun grab. It's to prevent my living breathing gun from levitating out of my holster and randomly shooting the people around me. Hillary comes to me in my dreams and informs me of the dangers of gun ownership.

    You hit the nail right on the head. While we may not agree with everything the NRA says and does, they still are a tremendous force working to preserve our second amendment RIGHTS.Gun Owners of America,another dog in this fight. Both of these groups need our support,and commitment to be proactive in our efforts.As an NRA recruiter,I often run into opposistion when recruiting someone,they often have some little thing that bothers them,too much mail, or support for this one or that one, so I can't support them. Think big picture here,are those minor things going to aggravate you more than the ATF coming to your house to take your guns. All those little reasons why not won't seem so important then,but it will be too late. JOIN THE FIGHT.

    Done, done and done. These are three excellent suggestions, and I think the post is right on. We need to make gun ownership the norm and the grabbers even more out there on the fringe. Best way to do that is make your voice heard and expand the number of gun owners/enthusiasts.

    I recently became an NRA member for this very reason. I didn't want to deal with phone calls and/or "junk mail" but I finally decided that it was well worth a few seconds of my time now and again to support an organization that is supporting me.

    I'll go you one better. Find one new person who dislikes guns...and rob him or burglarize his house...and THE NEXT DAY I guarantee that guy will be at the gun shop!

    Seriously, this is a good approach. Take someone shooting. Typically they beg for more.

    Being in a music school, most of my peers are typically on the left side of the political spectrum. The best way that I have found to convert an anti is to take them to the range, and bring my Marlin 882 and my Ruger 10/22. Since those rifles are .22s, they're quiet and there is no recoil to turn off the new shooter. It still hasn't failed to put a smile on their face after sending that first round downrange.

    You can talk at someone all you want, but there is no better way of converting someone than letting them discover how awesome guns are by themselves (well, with a little help).

    Excellent post.

    Thanks for sharing

    The part of getting non shooters involved and at the very least try shooting a firearm, is the utmost of importance.
    This I think will chase away a lot of the hobgobblins(antigunners)
    Converting is better than fighting.

    I like the idea of people committing to taking a newbie or an anti to the gun range, this is a great way to impart knowledge that will destroy the myths the antis use to demonize guns and their owners.
    we should all make the pledge to educate one anti and maybe even convert him into a gun owner.
