Jesse Jackson Announces A Day Of Anti-Gun Reckoning--And What You Can Do About It: On August 28, Rev. Jesse Jackson is organizing an anti-gun protest in up to 25 cities nationwide. Not willing to lay the blame for crime on criminals, Jackson and his cronies claim, "people who buy guns from gun shops kill people." Since the sale of every firearm from every licensed gun dealer is subject to a background check, it is unclear how the millions of law-abiding Americans who go through this mandated check and legally "buy guns from gun shops" are responsible for killing people. Then again, though, Jackson is never one to let the facts get in the way of a misguided PR opportunity...
So, what can you do to counter this PR stunt? Of course, any type of pro-gun counter protest would be covered with the media’s typical anti-gun bias, if it was covered at all. But there is a way we can speak directly to the American people to set the record straight on gun bans, gun rationing, and other anti-gun proposals.Through a massive and coordinated blitz of letters to the editor of our local newspapers in the days and weeks leading up to the August 28 demonstrations, we can speak directly to American citizens and our elected officials with the fact straight from the mouths of voting constituents."
And thats that. We, with 3 days remaining, can "blitz" our local newspapers. Yes it's good that the NRA finally got wind of the situation, and no, I didn't expect them to back ANY buy a gun or ammo policy. They've got to remain as politically correct as possible and might tick off the Fudds, who by the way make up the majority of their membership.
Still wouldn't have hurt to urge Elmer to swap some firewood for dove-shot.
