Change the Debate: How to Win the Battle for Gun Rights Part II: Take Action

Patriots, you must act now while you still have the ability to resist.  Apathy will lead to tyranny in our lifetime.  You must make the facts known, you must make your numbers known, you must make your determination known, and you must check the opposition at every corner.  Call out those that mock you and seek to enslave you.  Do not by shy.  Be fanatical in your perseverance to protect your few remaining rights and freedoms and then to win those lost back.  Do not rest at simply protecting the shreds that are left, but push till you have fully regained your rightful freedoms and deposed those that threaten them.  When fighting those willing to enslave you, it is proper, justifiable, and responsible to radically oppose their actions.  Organize, protest, and march on your state houses and Washington.  Out the traitors attempting to take your rights and enslave you!

On the electoral front, for starters, you must vote out anyone that supports gun control.  Further, you must abandon both the Republican and the Democrat parties that have long since abandoned their constituents for special interests and lobbyist dollars.  Neither party serves your interests but simply uses you for their gain.  Don’t allow the parties to divide and distract you on ridiculous issues while they pass laws to indefinitely detain you during midnight sessions of Congress over Christmas when they think no one is paying attention.  Remember, at nearly every instance of the erosion of your freedom and liberty, it was by a bipartisanconsensus.  You must hold all of our elected officials accountable at the voting box and destroy the current party establishment by voting for neither and insisting on running and voting for independent candidates.

Not voting is as ruinous as it is stupid.  It is true that many are disillusioned when it comes to elections, but you actually have significant power to change the course of elections by taking some simple, but effective actions.  These grassroots tactics are real, effective electoral strategies used successfully by the parties themselves, but are closely kept from the public’s eyes.  To change the electoral game on the parties, begin by collecting the names and contact information of all likeminded people in your voting district.  This is one of the most basic and important aspects of grassroots mobilization.  There are many ways to do this including asking for lists already generated by gun rights groups.  However, if you must start from scratch, begin with your friends and family.  Then have them each reach out to those in their networks and those people reach out to those people in their networks.  Ask that every person just reach out to at least one other person to do the same.  Have them all send their contact information to one consolidated email address where the master list can be developed.  Use this list to rally and motivate your local base to go out and canvas for even more supporters.  An effectively run networking operation like this can quickly net thousands of supporters.  At the local level, this mobilization is enough to sway and win an election.

Next, organize throughout your state by district.  As the names add up, combine these district lists to form a picture of support across the entire state.  Use these lists to write your representatives demanding they vote to protect and expand gun rights.  Further, make it very clear to the representative that the constituents you represent will vote in the primaries and pool their money to run a viable opposition candidate.  Few people realize that many elections are won and lost in those very early pre-election district and state contests, which next to no one pays any attention to.  The fact that so few people turn out for primary elections means that an incumbent representative is very, very vulnerable during this early stage of a campaign.  If the electorate is mobilized and turns out for an opposing candidate, just a few dozen or even a couple hundred votes WILL often end the incumbent’s campaign.  This is especially true if it is done secretly and the turnout is a surprise to an apathetic and over confident incumbent.   Even worse for the incumbent is the fact that they will have to spend precious money early on in the campaign when no one cares or is really paying attention, which puts them at an extreme disadvantage to their opponent.  This money isn’t spent defeating the opposing party’s candidate, but rather, just to secure their own party’s nomination.  This depletes the party’s coffers and effectively is a means to force a party to self-destruct through financial starvation.  Further, the primaries are also when the candidates often have the least amount of campaign resources and can’t afford a big financial fight.  Use this knowledge and leverage to gain control over your local representatives.  Done effectively, you will not only be able to influence your representatives, but replace them with your candidates.

To win at the state level, you must build on this strategy and grow the network.  State level wins are the big key to success because states have the Constitutional authority to counter, block, and ignore federal dictates.  Wins at the state level also shape the state party and will be the NECESSARY foundation for changing the federal makeup of elected representatives.  Just as important is the fact that winning and influencing local and state elections is feasible and can be done within a relatively short time span.  For example, when targeting anti-gun candidates in the primaries across a state in large numbers, a well-organized front can inflict electoral disaster on the targeted party.  A real threat of this gains you real access and influence over not only the candidates, but the parties themselves.  Further, well organized movements can pool their resources to greater effect.  In the districts with well-grounded and supportive representatives, skip targeting them as you already have a viable candidate that is supportive of expanding gun rights.  Instead, focus on the candidates and districts that are opposed to gun rights.   For example, this may mean that supporters in rural districts of a state like New York or Maryland pool their resources to run a candidate against an anti-gun candidate in an urban area of the state notorious for pushing gun control, which is out of their district.  Done effectively and early in the primaries, it is possible to completely remove the candidate and replace that candidate with your own pro-gun candidate.  Then the party must make a choice to either support a pro-gun candidate (even if that isn’t the party’s platform) or risk losing a seat and influence during the actual election.  The party will have no choice but to bend to your will.  Depending on the situation, sometimes it is best not to try to get your candidate on the ballot, but to get the worst one off.  This would be a great strategy to employ against a progressive anti-gun Democratic that has historically has won by large margins.  At the worst, you would force the candidate and the anti-gun party to spend precious cash leaving it vulnerable to the opposition party.  The fringe benefit is that you are also now in a position to leverage this influence over the weaker party that typically would have forced a pro-gun agenda.

Ladies and gentlemen, apathy at this late stage of the game is not acceptable.  History shows that once guns are registered they are taken.  Once they are taken you don’t get them back.  Disarmed against tyranny, the forces of evil will attack using the full force of modern weapons and violence.  The result is always the government inflicted deaths of millions of innocent people in the pursuit of absolute power and control; a number of deaths, which is far greater than any crime spree in history or terrorist act could inflict.  Ultimately, what one will have won for apathy and the hope that you will be left alone will be slavery for generations.
