Visibility is going to be more important than ever in these coming days. So much so that I have finally decided to make an account here and elsewhere that I have lurked for some time. (Yes, this is copy/pasted for those of you who frequent other boards, to save me time while I spread this message as widely as possible)
EVERYONE who cares about their firearms rights should sign the petitions against gun control at https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/.
It will not be these petitions that make the difference in the end, but they will improve our chances and are easy to do. Please take 5 minutes of your time to help us catch up to the suddenly organized anti-gun mob that has been fueled by media sensationalism, and tell EVERYONE ELSE that you know that will support us. We need to work together now more than ever.
Please also write your Senators/Congressmen. Tell them you do not wish to be punished for the actions of others, and if some form of law simply cannot be avoided, to attempt to focus it on the real problems - mental health and the mentally unhealthy's access to these firearms - rather than the guns themselves.
Thank you for your time and consideration,
