    An idea to promote gun rights

    (Thinking out loud)

    The signers of the Declaration of Independence are pictured on the back of the 2 dollar bill.

    2 of course is highly symbolic of the 2A.

    The DHS paints certain individuals as extremists. Among them are gun owners. Certainly the signers would fit in this category.

    Most gun owners either don't carry at all or CCW, thus we are the invisible majority.

    In times past the US Navy has paid their sailors in 2 dollar bills to let the retail/business community know where their sales come from, even if the sailors are out of uniform.

    Perhaps there is some kind of short catchy slogan that can be stamped on these bills that can subtly tell people to respect our rights.

    Ideas?

    Maybe. I actually had another idea just earlier today, although I have no idea how to implement it...we need some $$$, but I think it'd be great proaganda to get a popular musical artist or two (to specifically target our youngsters...think hip-hop and/or alternative) to record a song and music video illustrating what can happen if one is helpless, and what can happen i f one is prepared (maybe true stories built into the video?)

    Great idea

    I like the idea of using $2 bills to illustrate who we are. I'd do it. What's needed is a national awareness campaign. I'm sure the NRA could promote this nationally. Perhaps you should contact them with the idea.

    Good luck getting a 'gun slogan' printed on money, right now those in control would like to take off anything relating to God.

    I've been doing this for years, now.

    I have a small rubber stamp that I use to stamp "Support YOUR Right To Bear Arms" on the envelopes of all my outgoing snail mail and on both sides of paper U.S. Currency.

    As I interpret Title 18, Part 1, Chapter 17, paragraph 333, U.S. Code, this is not "defacing" U.S. Currency:

    Whoever mutilates, cuts, defaces, disfigures, or perforates, or
    unites or cements together, or does any other thing to any bank bill,
    draft, note, or other evidence of debt issued by any national banking
    association, or Federal Reserve bank, or the Federal Reserve System,
    with intent to render such bank bill, draft, note, or other evidence
    of debt unfit to be reissued
    , shall be fined under this title or
    imprisoned not more than six months, or both
    .


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    I haven't seen a $2 bill in about fifteen years. Are they still in use?

    using the "2" on the bill.
    Is that what the OP had in mind?

    Believe me when I tell you that adding printing, writing, stamping, or any other "design" onto a US currency bill IS defacing that bill so that it cannot be placed back into circulation (and therefore must be reprinted at additional taxpayer dollars).

    It's not defacing with intent to render the bill "unfit to be reissued" but with intent to keep the bill in circulation to broadcast support of the second amendment. However, this is not a case that I would want to test besides leading a trail back to broadcast that I, myself, may be carrying a concealed weapon. And I don't want to tell the world. So I'm having second thoughts about how to do this more anonymously.
    BTW, Rob P., as an attorney, do you have a citation supporting your assertion?

    No citation required because I'm not giving legal advice. It's just my PERSONAL opinion. You want legal advice? Seek competent legal counsel for your local jurisdiction and pay for it.

    BTW, as a practical matter when someone, who deals with folks who have problems with the law, tells you it's not a good idea to do something don't you think it's wiser to listen to them than not? Even on the interweb?

    Of course some people stick paper clips into wall sockets even after being told not to, sooooo...

    Hmmm.

    I always prefered forks, better contact on the outlet terminals.

    As to stamping messages on money, IANAL but common sense tells me not to.

    There is a need for awareness throughout our country as a whole. Not to start a fight but I open carry often now and you would be amazed how many people assume I automatically Have my "license" to which I will briefly explain open carry laws if they are receptive. Most of the time the people seem genuinely interested to learn the information. To some I say no I don't need one in the state of Arizona, have a nice day. I try and spread the word how ad whenever I can, but I don't try to come off as a pusher either. If you have questions and ask them of me I'll explain to the best of my knowledge.

    Seems every time a spend a $50 or $100, the clerk takes a marker and put a mark on the bill, would that not also be defacing the same as stamping the bill as Terry does???

    If I was as computer Savoy as other members here I would apply for a Citi Bank credit card, they let you design your own card, and as much as they are anti 2nd, I would design some sort of gun background for the card. That'll fix'um

    Apparently, we’re already being tagged and labeled as extremists each time we buy/register a gun. I wouldn’t want to give our growing oppressive government any more reason to watch me.
