    This thread is going to be a place to keep up with the plan from this thread:
    http://www.thehighroad.org/showthread.php?s=&threadid=85824

    So far, this is what we have. We are going to mail something(either Bricks or rocks with a message, or photoshopped pictures of same.). We are going to all mail the same thing, to make it uniform and present a unified front.
    We need to come up with an appropriate RKBA quote or slogan.
    We also need to find a Pro RKBA journalist. Suggestions so far are Ann Coulter or John Stossel. WE NEED big exposure to make this work!
    That journalist will present the reason behind the mailing prior to the fact.
    Please, no mailings before we are ready. We can't afford leftward spin on this before the facts are out.
    A great help would be for people to network locally and regionally, so we have alternate means of contact after we take this off of THR. We DO NOT want THR smeareed by any negative press, so after a certain point, we will ask that mods remove any related threads and we will communicate by other means.
    The mailings will go to politicians,Stay tuned!

    I'm in!

    That said:

    I realize that an organized mail campaign to influence our congressional representatives is a 100% legal and very American thing to do but before we do it consider that:

    Call it tinfoil hat if you wish but I'd bet a dollar to a doughnut that if in any mailing we use our real names that the nature of the mailing will result in our names being placed on a FEDERAL LIST of some sort (heck just being a member of THR is more than likely list worthy). Maybe one called the Re-education and Future Work Camp Plank Owners list or the Go see this Guy and Collect his Guns First list or the Nut Case Probably Safe to Ignore list. What ever the list is called if you use your real name when you mail the suggested letter you're gonna end up on it. (OK that's probably an exageration but your name will be placed in a data base of some sort for sure - even if it's only your congress critter's office data base - the possibilities are numerous).

    I would suggest that we pick a RKBA related phrase and anagram it into something resembling a real name. It wouldn't be the first time that was done. Then we all use that name.

    If we all conduct our mailings on the same day and all use the same name when our congress critters and state legislators start comparing notes it will be obvious even to them that an organized campaign is being conducted - how could one guy mail 10,000 letters from 10,000 different post offices all at the same time.

    Oh! And you probably shouldn't mail your letter from your neighborhood mailbox either - at least mail it from a different zip code and handle it as little as possible (you'd be surprised how many places a finger print can be lifted from - not that they'd necessarily do that because of one letter but if a significant number come in all with the same message????).

    I'm in, Great idea. may I suggest that we not delete any threads relating to this, nothing disappears in cyberspace. Deleting things just makes us look paranoid. We should also include Dubya in all this, a veto is still a victory of sorts.

    Father's Day Event Planned -- "50 MILLION ROUND MARCH"

    DATE (Emmett, Idaho ) -- May 19, 10 AM -- A nation-wide "50 Million Round March" is being planned for Father's Day, June 18, 2000 in support of 2nd amendment rights and to counter the "Million Mom March" which was held on Mother's Day.

    This event will demonstrate to elected officials the resolve and the numbers of those individuals committed to retaining their second amendment rights, and send a message to cease enacting laws which infringe on this right for law abiding citizens.

    Fathers and their families, friends and neighbors will get together at shooting ranges all over the nation and simultaneously fire over 50 million shots, or "rounds", as a statement in support of the right to keep and bear arms for all law abiding citizens. "Range monitors" will be in place at each event to insure that proper firearm safety is observed.

    This effort will also include a letter-writing campaign to congressional representatives, senators, governors and the President informing them of the participants' attendance and their insistence that infringements on this constitutional right cease. As a memento of the event, the participants will include either one of their used targets with their letters, or two spent cartridges in a mailer box with their letters.

    One of the organizers of this event, Jeff Head from Emmett, Idaho, related the following reasons he got involved with such a grassroots event:
    "The efforts to infringe upon our 2nd amendment rights to self defense have been escalating in the recent months. A veritable chorus from political pundits and the main stream media are trying to convince us that it would be "best for the children" to further restrict firearm use and sales by honest, law-abiding citizens.

    However, history is littered with the ashes of societies and peoples who have accepted this unsubstantiated and historically inaccurate claim. Historically it is clear that it would be "best for the children" for the people to remain armed. Responsible firearm ownership and use are one of the great hallmarks for American liberty and our unprecedented peace and prosperity as a people.

    This event will safely discharge over 50,000,000 "rounds" from firearms in the space of two hours without harm or injury to those taking part at any official shooting range around the country. This in itself will send a powerful message regarding firearm safety and responsible use by law abiding citizens.

    So, on this Father's Day, and on every ensuing Father's Day, let us stand as father's for family and liberty. Let us stand with our wives, brothers, sisters, children, relatives and friends. Let us send 50 million rounds down range collectively at firing ranges all over this nation to demonstrate our resolve and the true meaning of our 2nd amendment rights."
    The effort, which officially started on Tuesday, May 16th, had already garnered the support of a number of conservative web sites, gun shops, firing ranges, and conservative media outlets.

    Mods, can we float this a while? It's kind of an ongoing thing. I'd actually like to restrict posting here to myself and SM, with other folks chiming in on the call to Rock thread. I don't know if that's possible.

    Count me in on this!

    I whipped up an ugly brick photo in Photoshop. I will try to clean it up a little. The reason it doesnt look brick-like is because I had to draw the brick from scratch. :)

    The cleaner one.

    Maybe someone can give it a brick texture. I have all the .psd's for someone to tinker with.

    Can you get a pic of an actual brick? and write the words on that? I can send you a pic if you'd like. It would not be until tomorrow, but I can take a pic tomorrow and e-mail it to ya. You can add it to that image of the broken glass and than add the wording. let me know.

    Yeah, I could do that. Could you get the brick to be angled like the one in my PS'ed image?

    Since I already had my tinfoil hat on today...

    "handle it as little as possible (you'd be surprised how many places a finger print can be lifted from"

    Good advice, in these times of heightened terrorist threat awareness. What about licking the envelope? Is the FBI lab likely to try to get a DNA sample from the envelope adhesive? Could they?

    CYA, doncha know...

    I emailed Kim du Toit a link to this thread. I'm hoping that he can help raise awareness with his large reader base. I'm also going to link to it from my site.

    Thanks Everyone!!

    I have had a bunch of correspondence to read through. I apologize if I have not responded.

    I have decided to do what I have always done. I ask for some SAGE advice. I have rec'd some, and am waiting on other replies.

    I grew up listening to my "elders". Those that know me understand I do NOT mean offense by this. I use this in a respectful way. It does not refer age in years only. It refers to those with knowledge, experience and expertise in an area (s).

    Unexpected, organized, timed delivery is important IMO.

    Kinda like when the in-laws show up without warning. That will get your head to spin ...:)

    One of the windows of my house recently broke so I have the shards from that, I also have a brick I found in my back yard (No, the two are not connected).

    There really isnt much room to write on these things and have it be effective so I recommend something short and sweet. I am going to do a quick a photo shoot so you guys can get an idea of what I have to offer...

    How about :

    "AMENDMENT II -
    ...SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED"

    The brick is blank, I did this text in photoshop. I am trying to capture the middle of the night, brick and glass on the carpet illuminated by flashlight thing but I am pretty inexperienced with cameras.
