Congress is currently weighing another assault weapons ban that could include the outright prohibition of magazines that hold more than 10 bullets. If such a bill is passed into law there is no telling how far Congress or Barack Obama will go to limit the 2nd Amendment.
We need to stand strong and send a message to Washington that our constitutionally protected right to bear arms must not be infringed! We have basked in the glow of our recent victory in congress for a while now but now is not the time to let our guard down; neither on the federal level or that of New York State. We need to keep the pressure on our representatives at every level. With 50 + counties and many towns passing resolutions condemning the NY Safe Act we are gaining support for our cause. Keep up the good work and we can beat them.
All the hard work done and time spent by our county leaders, staff and supporters has not gone unnoticed. We are gaining members and counties all over the state. If we continue on our present path we will be a force to be reckoned with. Our fight is the first step in getting this country back on the track that the founding fathers sent us down so many years ago. The path that the current regime has strayed so far from. If we save the second we have the means to defend all the rest.
NYR= Alert and Awake. That is our cry. We need to stay both. Alert to the backdoor meetings and the middle of the night votes. As we have seen in the past all it takes for gun laws that accomplish nothing but punishing law abiding citizens is a midnight vote under an unconstitutional decree of “message of necessity” by our current “Dictator in Charge”. Active is getting out our message and education of the public on the truth and nothing but the truth. We cannot let the liberal media poison the minds of the public with half-truths and outright lies. Watch any news station and you can see the way they twist the truth, omit facts, or use ancient polls in an effort to make the public sway in their direction. They will even exploit the tragic murders of children in Sandyhook by a madman to push their agenda. We can never stop educating the public. Education is power and power can fix this mess they have got us into.
