Don’t Waste Your Ink

Since 1993 how many letters concerning the Gun Laws have been sent to newspaper editors, individual Members of Parliament (Garry Breitkreuz in particular), the Prime Minister of the day and assorted Ministers of Security?

How many dollars have been wasted by the federal government on the one side and personal wealth on the other for “0” net gain. Keep in mind that the Billions of tax dollars were YOUR money too; the ‘gov’mint has no money except yours.

Question #3: What has been the net result of all of this effort?

I say zero and defy anyone to argue the point.

Well then, fifteen years later is it not long past time that we quit this wasted effort and sought another strategy; one that will work? Those who ponder this point and then continue doing nothing but write letters, whine into their coffee cups and make fists in their pockets are really cowards “working for the government gun-grabbers”.

Regarding the latest federal election, the MGR makes no claim, but 200,000 voters more than those in 2006 parked their votes with the Green Party. The net result was to deny any party a majority; to deny any party the unopposed right to take the gun grab to the next stage. We have gained a reprieve to take our attack to the next stage..

Do we dare!

There are at most a couple of hundred true patriots fighting full time for YOUR right to have weapons for your self defence. They (we) could use some support from the several millions who stand to benefit from the actions of we couple of hundred.

We cannot believe that the masses will only wake up when it is obviously too late.

I, for one, think that a little shock treatment is needed. This will require an advertising campaign and such ventures cost money. The small group of activists have each spent thousands of dollars of their own coin fighting the gun grabbers over the last fifteen years. Some of it was wasted, for example the several millions that disappeared during the reign of Jim Hinter and Dave Tomlinson of the N.F.A. But there have been others, all who have gained the combined total of zero yardage.

Before anyone starts proclaiming that the several amnesties are a gain; they were only ‘time outs’ declared by the opposition coaches while they sought ways to win the game by changing the rules in the middle of the first quarter. None of these amnesties has helped us one little bit, unless being lulled to sleep is considered to be a ‘help’

There are several groups who have chosen to comply with the bureaucratic rules and regulations. These are the competition shooters, gun dealers and collectors. The last two groups are in a serious bind because their income and equity are at risk. The competition shooters, all hobbyists on an ego trip, should have hung up their guns in protest in 1996. And before there is a loud clamour for my hide I will point out that I shot rifle and shotgun competitively and successfully for many years. I quit cold when I realized that such shooting was no longer the means to an end, improved marksmanship skills to enhance my value as an Air Force fighter pilot, but had become ends in themselves. The net result was a bunch of patches on the backs of my shooting jackets. Target shooting had become an ego trip, pure and simple. I see the same thing going on in every Rod and Gun Club that I visit.

I see compliant shooters on an ego trip. I no longer waste time talking to these folks, any more than I would spend two seconds talking to most movie stars and politicians. They are too much in love with themselves to ever react logically to a logical argument. They live a life of lies. How can they understand truth?

There are few ways that a busy working man can aid the cause. Only a cash donation can speak for him – he is too busy otherwise. But he can encourage his fellow shooters to do some serious thinking .If every gun owner who knows he will be gunless if he does nothing would donate a small percentage of his total equity in firearms and associated equipment we could do something. For most of us about $50 would be just 1%. For some of us serious hunters $200 would just be 1%. That is only 1% when we stand to lose a hundred times that if the Canadian Government follows the lead of EVERY OTHER COUNTRY IN THE WESTERN WORLD, SAVE THE U.S.

And I make a special point. This is not just a ‘boy’ thing. Our spouses will lose their 50% spousal equity when the Gunstapo kick in the door. Gals, it’s your fight too.

It is absolutely certain that we would long since have gone the way of all European countries were it not for the Second Amendment. But American gun owners are under constant attack from the majority, as are we. But we are mutually supportive. If both of us resist with determination the efforts of the majority to disarm the minority, for that is what we are doing, we shall finally prove that “Democracy” is not a matter of

“Two wolves and one lamb discussing what to have for dinner”.

Therefore, my fellow countrymen have no right to try to deprive me of that which I was born with, “My Right to defend my life, my family and my property”.

I will do this anyway and I will do everything possible, including risking my life, to achieve a level playing field. I must be as well armed as all my potential predators.

Will you get off your fat, complacent backside and support the Morning Glory Rebels? Have you a better idea? Will you just do something positive?
