Some of you know I've been selling firearms for the last 3 years. I've also been an NRA recruiter for about a year, and am so excited to introduce my brand new Join the NRA link (see the sidebar to the right in case you missed it)! There has never been a more important time to join the National Rifle Association than now. With a solidly anti-gun President in office and anti-gun majorities in both houses of congress, we as gun owners and/or friends of freedom need to do all we can to uphold those God-given rights protected by our Constitution. A short bit of history for you all:
The Constitution was written at the Constitutional Convention of 1787 and had to be ratified by the individual states. Many of the state representatives did not like the idea of a federal government that could get too powerful and so as "anti-federalists" insisted that the Bill of Rights was attached to the Constitution before they would ratify it. So, short story even shorter, the first 10 amendments to the Constitution were written to protect individuals' God-given rights FROM the power of the federal government, and the 2nd amendment protects one of the most basic of rights, the right to self protection and it needs to be preserved.
If you are not already a member of the NRA, please take a minute and click the Join NRA button on the sidebar. It's quick, easy, and there are many different options available for membership lengths and costs. If you are already a member, bless you! You can also use the link to renew your membership. Even if you don't own a firearm, you can still join and support your right to keep and bear arms. Leave me a comment that you've joined and I'll give you a big ol' electronic hug for your patriotism! :)
