    This was sent to me by the Brady Camp:


    Dear LBF
    We Won, the NRA Lost, Now Let's Get Busy
    Jim and I couldn't be more pleased and proud of what you helped make happen this week. We have a tremendous opportunity with our new leaders.
    I can tell you: it hasn't been this good for quite a while!
    The NRA is reeling from their election defeats. They lost in states where they spent millions on ad campaigns and endorsements. Now they are quickly re-building their war chest to fight us all the way.
    You know me as a do-er. I like to make things happen — especially when it results in saving lives. And as much as I want to breathe a sigh of relief after this week's election, we need to get busy.
    Please help with an immediate donation
    to the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence.
    I don't want to lose any time getting the new Congress and the White House to move our life-saving agenda forward. Click here to donate.
    I want our newly elected officials to hit the ground running as much as you do. We need the new Congress to close the gun show loophole, enact a comprehensive assault weapons ban, and stop illegal gun trafficking.
    We can't wait another moment to get started on the tough work ahead.
    We have many allies in Congress. More than 91 percent of Brady-endorsed candidates won their races. And President-elect Obama and Vice President-elect Biden are strong and consistent supporters of common sense gun measures.
    But they need to hear from the Brady Campaign right now. Please contribute to the Brady Campaign to make sensible gun laws a top priority in this new Administration.

    Sincerely,

    Sarah Brady, Chair

    P.S. The Brady Campaign has so many allies in Congress now. Please donate today to help move quickly to pass sensible gun laws.






    Yes I am signed up for Email alerts from the Brady Camp, I think you should also. Anyway WE NEED TO STAND TOGETHER and defeat them like we did with DC vs HELLER. The NRA spent Alot Of Money on Campaign Adds.
    Fellow Gunners I will be donating $25 to the NRA-ILA
    https://secure.nraila.org/Contribute.aspx
    Whether or not you think the NRA is for you and your believes, Ask yourself
    "Does the Brady Camp Emulate my Ideals"?

    My 25 has been submitted! TO the NRA-ILA
    For those that are not a Member, you might as well get something for your Money and go with a membership instead of a donation.

    Are you suggesting that you did, and we should give mony to the Brady Bunch?

    Didn't realize the air was that thin in Kalispell

    Well bless their little bleeding cheerful hearts. Wile E. Coyote doesn't give up either. They convinced me to make a donation but not to them for sure for sure.

    Treo, MT Gunny donated to the NRA-ILA. It is something any self respecting gunny should do.

    we ALL are going to get off our duffs, and try to keep from loosing a bunch of our rights. it is going to be a long hard battle. i am not wealthy, but i have some time. so i am looking into volenteering some of it to the NRA. and, yes, i am a member. but right now, that is not going to be enough.

    I did, it was the second (since edited) post that threw me. My apologies and I second the motion that we need to join up and donate to the NRA , as well as other pro RKBA organizations.

    Again my apologies

    I am signed up for the Sarah Brady's emails. From now on I will do my best to donate $5 to NRA-ILA every time I get a Brady email, and I will send Sarah an email saying so each time.
    Feel free to join me. ;)

    A modest proposal i think

    Well, fellow gun-men and -women, have you had it "up to here" with the press lately? Gloating how "the gun-wielders have been repudiated" and "gun lobbyists have gone away in defeat"? Hhhmmm, well have you? Well, our cause has not been defeated! It was simply "squirreled with" and "ACORNED" to the margins. I am as mad as you are, but that will do nobody any good, unless we apply their tactics in our favor. I propose that we sign and circulate the following Pledge, or something like it, at all gun-shops, gun-shows, gunner-gatherings, and, where any will, use the voluntarily given e-mail addresses to remind all of us to VOTE IN 2012 to preserve all of our rights (assuming we have any left by that time.) Feel free to edit, expand, delete, or opine on the following idea:

    Oath of National Resisters of Over-reaching Congressional Authority
    ("A C O R N" put backwards )


    I do hereby pledge to do Whatever It Takes (Not "To do my best", but to do "WHATEVER IT TAKES!") to defeat all gun-grabbers and their attempts to invalidate our Second Amendment Constitutional Right to have and to use fire-arms. I will do Whatever It Takes to unseat any incumbent in any station or level of politics who is anti-2A. I will act in every legal fashion and partake in every forum where our Rights may be discussed. I PROMISE THAT I WILL send one letter or e-mail to the editor(s) of every newspaper(s) and periodical(s) I read, and especially to reply to ALL Anti-2A comments of the paper or letter-writers. I will be civil but I will be adamant about enforcing the Constitution and defending it, against all enemies, foreign (AND DOMESTIC!). XXX

    I'm not articulate enough to wright to the Editor of the paper here.
    I would however, be willing to copy a good letter and submit it to the local paper here.

    If I am donating to the NRA, shouldn't I be asking myself if the NRA emulates my ideals? After all, there are other pro gun organizations.

    They don't think you are one of them, not unless you actually are a participant in their activities. Simply being on an electronic mailing list means just that, you are on an electronic mailing list, nothing more.

    This sounds rather spookish, but silly. Getting in a public mailing list is hardly infiltration and besides, just how is this public information actionable information to be used in annihilation? It is a propaganda email, nothing more.

    I can tell you right now, the anti-gun crowd will not get the support they think they will with the newly-elected democrats.

    Put very simply, it is not a priority - and is not a fight we feel it's worth having any time soon. (yes - i said we, don't shoot)

    Gun rights is a losing battle for democrats. We learned that lesson quite awhile ago. With Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, North Korea, Russia, Terrorism, the economy, healthcare, education, etc etc etc - a knock down drag out fight on high capacity mags isn't at the bottom of the list - it didn't even make the list to begin with.

    I can certainly understand everybody getting up in arms (no pun intended) over the recent election - but again, that's just another reason why we're not pursuing it. It's a wedge issue that raises a ton of money for the republicans, energizes the base, and loses elections.

    As spy mentioned - it's a propaganda email - nothing more.

    I can certainly understand the passion and enthusiasm - but I think perhaps we should be careful with the words chosen in the rhetoric...
    The "WHATEVER IT TAKES!" part tends to get people a little nervous.

    I'll tell you what makes me nervous. It's a new member who is a self proclaimed BHO supporter, trying to placate those of us who "cling to God and our guns". The incoming administration will indeed be busy with the immediate problems facing the Nation, but the "liberal agenda" will not forget about gun control. Somewhere down the road the Dems will continue the chipping away of our Constitutional right to bear arms. To say that is not on their agenda is a lie. Another danger obviously, is with Supreme Court appointees who do not interpret the Second Amendment as our forefathers intended.
    Sinixstar, do you actually own any firearms?

    Currently? No.
    In my moving around the country over the last several years, it became difficult to ensure any level of safety. I do still have a few at my father's in Indiana? Would you like a list?
    Marlin .22 papoose (the wood/blue model), Model 37 12ga, model 37 20ga, SuperBlackhawk .44mag with Hogue Grips and a 7.5" barrel, BlackHawk .45 colt with the stock rosewood grips in 7.5" and the non-fluted cyl, .50cal CVA muzzleloader (forget the model), and an old as dirt .22 that was passed down that I couldn't even tell you the make of.

    I'm not trying to placate anybody. If you want to think your world is going to come crashing down - feel free. I'm just trying to let you know what those of us on the other side of the aisle are thinking, cause I imagine you don't get much contrary opinion around here.
