One person CAN make a difference. By myself, with no help from anyone, I have made my voice heard and have gotten a response. Just imagine if they were hearing from THOUSANDS of likeminded citizens !!! Bring in some national media exposure (something their kind really hate) and things begin to change. After studying history for decades, I have yet to find a petty tyrant who woke up one morning and said, "hey, I'm tired of violating the serfs, I'm going to restore their rights and property." If you want your rights back, you're going to have to take them back by whatever means work. If that includes what you consider "pestering" them, so be it. I guess we could all do what the founders tried: petition the throne for years, only to be pissed on. And why would anyone care how James Dale felt? After all, HE works for US !!! If there were a REAL gun rights group in this country, the motion for a declaratory judgement would have already been filed. Instead of ******* away millions up in Virginia, the NRA (negotiate rights away) could be using those members' dues to actually achieve something worthwhile.
And you STILL have yet to answer my question: just how do you BEAR arms and NOT be arrested for carrying a concealed weapon without a permit?
