We Are In Big Trouble
WE ARE IN DEEP TROUBLE!
I know I have talked about apathetic gun owners many times. There are also apathetic Americans also—if it doesn’t concern me, don’t bother me with it. The trouble is that sometimes what they are apathetic about concerns their very freedom, their rights, their earned money and more.
Please watch this video and see how these people sign this petition even though the person is telling them what it would do! Of course it’s not a real petition, but he is showing how uneducated people are to their rights and what we are dealing with!
If it doesn’t connect --copy- paste it in your address bar:
As Mr. Pearson said there are 2 million gun owners in Illinois and only 28,000 ISRA members. My question is why? They surely see what’s happening in this state—refusing to pass conceal carry till forced.
Chicago has denied citizens handguns in their business’s. The poor 67 year old who got shot at 10 times had to beat his attacker off with a pole in Chicago’s Logan Square. That’s not right—everyone sees it on the TV news and then they go sit at the table and play solitaire, without a thought to that poor man. Instead they should be getting involved and joining organizations fighting for their freedom. How can it ‘not’ bother them—what if it was them or a relative? Why do they vote these officials back in office? Even non gun-owners should be appalled at this man’s denied right to have a pistol in his place of business. It was given to him by our Founders—put in the Bill of Rights and a city Government has denied him his lawful protection.
Every time there is news about gun control and the news stations will say, ”The Illinois State rifle Association opposes such & such", what goes through people’s minds? Are they gun owners? Are they not Americans seeing their right belittled? Do they know that bans, registrations, and restricting you to certain guns to protect yourself are totally wrong?
Wow the police have semi-auto rifles & pistols with 15—30 rd magazines. They face the same criminals you and I would face in a crime situation, but your government thinks you might hurt yourself or someone else having the same defense against the same criminals that they face, who already have 30 rd. magazines to take you out. Your government endangers your life by this! Will someone please explain to me what the hell is the difference?--- because I don’t see it!
So these apathetic gun owners and Americans see all this, hear the ISRA is opposing this or that, but they refuse to join the group that’s on their side fighting daily for them. By not joining us they automatically have joined the gun grabbers. Just not being informed, not making calls to legislators, not recruiting more people to join the ISRA, they aid the other side totally just by their attitude. My lands gun owners and non-gun-owners wake up and smell the coffee. It can’t be the money. The ISRA is only $25.00 a year. They spend that in an evening bowling with their friends! Do you not want to hear when something was proposed in Springfield, or you would rather wait till the news informs you another restriction was put on your right today? So what is it that stops them? For the life of me I have yet to hear one legitimate excuse!
Do they really think they are any kind of force alone? Do they think if they keep their head in the sand that the tide will never come in and consume them? How many many times have you heard people say, “I should have done that years ago”! Why do they say that? It’s because it’s too late and now they realize that if they did that deed many years ago, the situation they are in would never exist. Why? The plain fact is when the situation was popping up they just ignored it, like it wasn’t going to affect them. Now it’s over—they lost.
I am appealing here to gun owners and Americans who love this country. If you know a person like that, forward this link to them. Maybe I can inspire someone to get off the couch—turn down the TV and go to the phone and join. I am appealing to non-gun owners to also join the fight. You don’t have to be a gun owner to be with us, just believe in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights and realize politicians are ignoring it and starting to destroy it. If we lose those documents—we lose it all! Think about those people signing that petition!
We all have time to reverse this trend. Join—get involved—tell your friends who don’t see or realize freedom is being lost bit by bit. If you do not act you will be similar to the prairie dog. When he sees something he doesn’t like, he runs in his hole and hopes it passes, but the next hour there could be another threat! He comes out of that hole thinking everything is ok, but it isn’t, nothing has changed!
The American people never backed down on any threat this nation faced. We looked it in the eye and said, “You’re a—is mine” and by golly with that attitude we haven’t lost a battle yet! Please help us to win this one too!
When you look at the video and American people are signing a petition to eradicate their freedom without a second thought that is scary. The door to freedom is the gun, as Charlton Heston used to say. If we the infantry are on the front line trying to hold it, but we have no artillery people or tank people with us, then it makes our side look weak, because all the other soldiers are sleeping in the barracks.
All I can ask is for you to be a fighter, not a sleeper!
