The NRA has launched the Stand And Fight ad campaign for you to change your avatars on social media to show your support for gun rights in America.
The NRA Stand And Fight campaign is supposed to show support for the right to keep and bar arms. We are members of the NRA, believe in the 2nd Amendment and like many of you, are horrified at an increasing gun culture of gun violence. Gabby Giffords, Newtown, and The Dark Knight shooter are abominable acts by insane cowards.
Since these events, the Second Amendment has been challenged by the federal, state and local governments. As it reads-
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
Repeat- SHALL NOT. Americans are the militia of I, as in I and you have the right to defense.
The NRA fights a good fight, but its new badge of Stand And Fight makes us take pause. We do not want to Stand And Fight, we want to Stand And Defend. Having a firearm with or without a Concealed Carry permit does not make one prone to fight but to avoid the situation. To be able to defend. Hear someone breaking and entering? Call 911, try to get out of the area, hide etc. Not walk down the hall like on TV and start firing away. The best defense is a good offense.
Washington D.C. and Chicago have been among the toughest cities where anti-gun laws had been enacted. Also cities with pretty damned high crime rates and murders. The courts justifibily found most of the prohibitive gun laws otherwise http://constitution.findlaw.com/amendment2/amendment.html and reversed much of the stifiling laws. Yet, Mayor Bloomberg has made gun control another vendetta in NYC along with cigarettes, and soft drinks. He recently outlawed ammo clips with more than seven shots. The idiot apparently never checked because there are no manufactures of seven rounds. Mayor Michael Bloomberg and his group Mayors Against Illegal Guns this week launched a $12 million ad campaign supporting increased gun control. $12 MILLION DOLLARS? yup.
We do not want to Stand And Fight, we’d prefer to get out of a situation without ever having to use a firearm in the first place.
Does that mean we are not ready, locked and loaded? No.
We are not looking for a fight. We look to defend the 2nd Amendment and will do so- until, as they say, someone takes it from our cold dead hands.
