In the last few days since the American Rifleman, American Hunter, and America's 1st Freedom hit our mailboxes with my contact information, I've talked to concerned 2nd Amendment supporters across the 2nd Congressional District who have asked how they can help. It has been very encouraging to hear from so many people willing to step up and take action to get the word out and elect candidates who support our Right to Keep and Bear Arms.
One thing you can do is to sign up for the NRA's Frontlines. It is easy to do online and takes all of 5 minutes. There you can select a myriad of activities that fit your schedule, inclinations and talents. Some of the choices available to you include:
- Registering pro-gun voters
- Making phone calls
- Contacting your lawmakers
- Writing letters to the editor
- Walking precincts
- Attending town hall meetings
- Yard sign distribution
- Bumper sticker distribution
- Election day activities/poll work
- Literature drops
- Working at campaign headquarters
- Gun shows (registering voters, handing out yard signs, bumper stickers, & campaign literature)
- All of the above
If none of these things are appealing, you can also talk to relatives, friends, neighbors, co-workers and hunting & shooting buddies. Topics include candidates who support the 2nd Amendment, the importance of voting, how they can join or support the NRA. Other great places to do this include gun shops, ranges, gun & hunting clubs, gun shows, etc. Just the simple act of wearing your NRA hat or shirt the next time you run errands can help. I even heard one man suggest using an NRA yard sign as a sun shade in his car window. Use your imagination! If you have another idea, please send me an e-mail and I'll publish it here in a future edition.
To all who have called or written to me asking how you can help, Thank You! Without people like you who are willing to get involved, our 2nd Amendment rights would be in an even more precarious state. I really appreciate your patriotism, dedication and desire to serve. These are the things that make America great.
