Stand up for gun rights

Now more than ever, we have to stand up for our rights. People are coming after the Second Amendment, and I for one am not going to take it.

Here in Wisconsin, they’ve already infringed more than they should. It’s illegal to carry a weapon in public, period. It doesn’t matter if it’s concealed carry or open carry, in this state, if you want to use your rights to protect yourself, you’re out of luck. The law clearly states just possessing a firearm in public is enough to get you locked up.

What we need to do is organize. We need to march. We need to stand up for what we believe in. There’s a reason the Framers put this right at number 2 in the Bill of Rights. We intend to defend ourselves against any tyranny, and that includes the tyranny of Wisconsin’s laws.

So, we march, we organize, we demonstrate. We could have open carry sit-ins, for instance. We need to be a presence in the state’s politics so they know they can’t just ignore us and take away our rights.

I’m speaking to every gun-loving American in this state right now. If you want to make sure you still have your gun in six months, you’ve got to be a part of this movement. Most Americans support the 2nd Amendment, but most of them won’t do anything to save it. That’s up to us.

And I won’t lie to you, this could lead to some legal trouble for some people. Now, I’m not endorsing anyone doing anything to get anyone hurt. In fact, that will work against us. If the people who hate guns think they can prove we’re violent and a threat, they’ll do it, and then we may really be faced with a dire situation.

No, what I’m talking about is people who get arrested just for using their rights. You may find yourself in a jail cell just for having your gun with you in your car when you’re driving to work. You may find, especially, that you’re a target once you’re aligned with our movement, and some may want to look for any opportunity to say you’re breaking some law or another. And if we’ve got to demonstrate by showing our guns in public, well, a lot of us will be in for some long nights.

But we’re in this together, and we’ll take care of each other. There are lawyers out there that I think are on our side, who can help not just beat these cases but make a point out of them that can help our movement. If we can get a case seen by the Supreme Court, that could change everything. The Court is friendly to our cause, and we could make great progress there, but we’ll need people brave enough to stand up and be counted first.

No more grumbling gentlemen, it’s time to do what our Forefathers did and fight for our rights.
