Thank you for a lot of work in careful reading and writing. But where to begin?
We do need a leader and organizer with an acceptable background and leadership skills. Unfortunately gun carry has been so politicised that I have little hope for any one that I can trust. If we attempt a consistent message then contrary subtleties immediately interfere. We have no principles that will not be compromised by eager leaders.
I advocate the uninfringed Second Amendment (u2A), as principle that will not be compromised, to disarm all of the liars that would make their livelyhood by selling something else (with respect, GG, but utmost disrespect to the NRA, Dick Baker, Fendry et cetera ad nauseam).
I speak for the u2A in my public persona - at my fraternal organization meetings, and avocation meetings. I will, in time, introduce my electorate/constituency enmasse to my u2A stand. I will do what I can as an elected official in one of the very smallest constituencies in the State. (Re who I spoke to and what I said.) And I may not be elected. And I have other interests.
I will remain skeptical of others telling me what is good or better without very good arguments. These arguments need to be concise, with all the weasel words edited out, literate/grammatic and formally logical. <<The Argumentation series from the Learning Company is a good beginning - and it is difficult to absorb, staying awake through twelve hours of it.>>
Thank you for your great work and I will read with interest.
