    I wrote my first letter to a president this morning about 2:00AM, and it was basically a quote of some of the bill of rights, present facts from the FBI Uniform Code, and a complete and utter gentleman's bashing of Dianne Feinstein's disarmament of America campaign spanning decades, wasting taxpayers' money, and not addressing the true, evil murderous killers, using firearms in gun free zones.

    It was respectful, factual (gave footnotes where needed), and will certainly land in a place where sane, rational opposition to present flawed legislation lands; squarely in the round-file, after being read by an aid sympathetic to Mr. Obama's et al misguided cause.

    At least it didn't cost a stamp and envelope, but I had to get it off my chest, as stately as possible. It actually felt good to be able to express my self, without a team of jack-boot thugs breaking down my door, because it wasn't what the White House wanted to hear. It was a personal plea, basically, from the heart, and an honest assessment where I think all this gun nonsense is headed (as if I was saying something he didn't already know).

    I'm awaiting a reply, but don't expect one. If I do get one, I'll post it here yea or nay.

    I, too, wrote the President several weeks back when NYS passed their insane laws. I wrote it professionally, formally and with the respect his position has earned. I pointed out many of the things pointed out here. I also stated that he would become known as the President who fractured America like none since Lincoln. I don't think any President wants to be known for that but he will be if he pushes his agenda.

    I mailed it in a full sized envelope so it would not be folded. I included my name, address, email and phone number to show I wasn't a faceless radical. I expected an intern or secretary to read it and put it in a file with the thousands of other letters they must get weekly. I hoped for a form letter from them stating they have the letter and will consider it (yadda yadda). To date, I have not received anything in return. However, I don't expect anything nor do I believe I will receive anything but I did what I felt was right.

    Honestlly, I think we have come a long way in the past 6 weeks. We went from losing it all, to not losing anything. So why would anyone be thinking that we lost the war. We won the largest battle and have the enemy on the run, now we must keep up the preassure and drive the wooden stake through their heart.

    You're right, we've made a lot of good progress against our political opponents. We're still not doing so great on the enemy of doubt from within. Throughout the charge we've had seers and prophets utilizing their jedi powers to predict the end times, throw up their arms, and paint a picture so bleak as to infer we should all quit in the face of futile resistance, weep for the past, and fear for the future.

    My donation to the NRA-ILA is ready to be put to work on Monday morning when the markets open. I'll even give to any non-extremist pro-gun organization of your choice that isn't GOA, as they don't want my money. There's no need to worry about "the vehicles that will take them there", given that there is no shortage of Exchange Traded Funds that directly mirror whatever index you're going to make your prediction on. That is, if you know where the markets will be, I can tell you where the corresponding ETF will be. So, what price target are we looking at? Which index? What timeline?

    As well all know, the politicians took advantage of a tragedy to push thru their agenda. I seriously doubt they figured how firm we are in our resolve in light of the tragedy. The only thing that is a concern is the states pushing thru their own versions of "gun control". Hopefully, these will be fought and won in court.

    As has been said, Obama has put more guns in American's hands than anyone I can think of and these added gun owners also vote. We gained a lot more than a moral victory, IMO. It's not over yet but all the reports I've read show our emails, letters and phone calls have worked. We have to keep it up.

    Maybe he does want som kind of conflict, as far out as it sounds, it sure was easy to see this coming. Once you give people a cut off date they obviouslly are going to buy anything they can before that date.
    Not to feed in to conspiracy theorys but it does make sense that we would end up here with more guns and ammo in private hands than ever before.

    Geez! The future is what we make it. But if we don't make it, others will because they too are always trying. It looks like the AWB is dead. probably magazine bans as well. We may get UBCs or we may not. We are winning some battles, but don't make the mistake of thinking we have won the war. What I described is a possibility we must be aware of and do what we can to stop it before it gets started.

    "All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing" but we aren't doing nothin, and in our efforts (such as focusing attention on mental health) we must be careful not to open doors we would rather remain closed.

    Well my fortune cookie says "Pursue what makes you happy", and what makes me happy is AR 15s, AKs, M1As, an occasional Tommy Gun, and a country that I can own these things legally and proudly!

    My fortune cookie beats your crystal ball :neener:

    I thought you had to eat the fortune to make it come true?

    Psyo, i traded for 12 yrs 12 hrs a day with 6 screens and 4 wire services. Just do the opposite of what I do and you will make money, lol
    I am out of the market, in cash, we are up too high, something will happen soon and the markets will dunp again. It always looks brightest before the floor falls out.
    But Trent is my new hero, whatever he says I am going with, just don't forget that trip to Vegas we palnned. And those matching ferrari's you and I discussed.

    Your crystal ball is correct, and all the phone calls and letters in the world are not going to stop it at this point.

    Understanding the reality of the situation is not "giving up".

    "HERE COME THE ZOMBIES!"

    "Those are not zombies, they are tanks"

    "WHY ARE YOU SURRENDERING!"

    If, as many of us, you have ever taken an oath to defend The Constitution, none of what they do matters, our course is set.

    If you do not have the honor of having sworn, you will have to decide to draw a line, or bow-down.

    Yes, the time for nonviolent resistance is upon us...abandoning the fight, our families and descendants by going out in a blaze of glory, not so much.

    Hey, wow, I've never considered doom and gloom naysaying to be a great strategy for success, but maybe you're on to something!

    Hey everybody, LET'S GIVE UP!!! Resistance if futile! Who's with me? C'mon men, about FACE and RETREAT!

    All right, all right. This has gone from speculation to silly.
