Read the previous posts on the changes in the gun culture, then, if you get a chance, listen to the Wednesday podcast, then I'd like to ask you all a favor...tell me what you think we need to do to make these changes happen.
On the way to the airport this afternoon I had a long conversation with a very good friend of mine. He challenged me to take this to the next level. It's not enough, he said, to be a gadfly. Fair enough, but I am basically a gadfly with a big audience. I worked for 5 years within the firearms establishment and, frankly, was unable to get beyond running a program, no matter how successful that program was. And I pushed hard. I'm good at media...of course, it helps to have a wizard like Marshal Halloway as a partner and top-end producers like Tim Cremin, Mike Long and John Carter...team is everything...and I have the platform.
So I'm throwing this one open for comment...there's a lot of brainpower out there, including other gun bloggers like my friends Sebastian, Uncle, Bitter, Tam, Joe H., Frank J., Steve, Mr. Completely, etc., plus our great crew of regular commenters (and the comments on these posts have been just superb).
At 3PM on April 19th in D.C. I'm going to walk into the stage at the Second Amendment March...what do I need to say? If I'm going to call for action, what action should I be calling for?
Inquiring minds want to know...
