While I agree with you, I do so up to a point.... that point is where you say: "...we don't even have legislation to react to yet. Yeesh."

The basic law is this:
Action beats reaction.I am not calling for armed battle... that would be premature... But our side has done little, in the media, in plain view of the general public.
- The hypocrite celebrities are "demanding a plan."
- The well guarded politicians are demanding "reasonable restrictions" on our weapons.
- The VEEP is meeting with "the players" by talking to one side, and listening to the wrong side.
- POTUS is pressuring, and waiting for congress to act.
- Mayors are trying to limit the rights of people that are not responsible for their crime rates.
We are sitting on our hands.
I do have a plan for the celebrities:
- Every one of them, before they can portray a soldier, must spend some time (one full tour) in an active engagement zone, with soldiers, on patrols and in actions (they can have all the armor they can wear, and they can carry their own guns, food, an everything else a soldier carries in the battle zone).
- Every one of them, before they portray a criminal (or a cop), must visit the "best neighborhoods" in Chicago, Detroit, L.A. and NYC, wearing the colors of a rival gang in each of the other's turf... unarmed, and unguarded.
- Every one of them must be a hero... before they can act like one... firefighter, soldier, cop, dog catcher, whatever.
I have a plan for all the pencil necked geeks that write the code for "Action Video Games:"
- See the plan for the celebrities
I have a plan for the politicians:
- Shut UP.
- Speak the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.
- OBEY the Constitution of the United States Of America.
I have a plan for the media, the press in particular:
- Learn the basics. Who, What, When, Where, and How.
- Learn the real language of that upon which you report.
- Report the truth.
- Cover the good news and the bad.
- Make politicians and pundits pay for their time on air.
I even have a plan for Piers Morgan:
- Go Home
I think that covers my plan.
But in the mean time, I am acting... I am doing all I can to win hearts and minds, spread the truth, and bust the lies and myths for what they are.
If they ever come for my guns... And, I don't have many. They will not get them without a fight.
