From My Cold Dead Hands Is Not Enough

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.”
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.
