Mentioned in another thread was the fact that this insurrection was being reported and supported in other states. And it needs to spread far beyond our borders.

More or less, it was the Pennsylvania sportsman that generated the heat to get the big sponsors to leave the show. That has a cost, likely the viability of the show going forward.

Along the way, others outside our borders joined the cause.

But the grass roots action here that so many of you have been part of has made another difference. It has clearly shown that standing together in unison, we can influence powerful groups and bring the desired change.

That my friends is something that couldn't have come at a better time in the current political climate.

Our friends and brothers in arms needed a boost right now. There has been so much hand wringing, fear, and expectation of a looming gun grab by those elected to office. This action, this unity of purpose should demonstrate that sportsmen and gun lovers all - when we stand unified and work as a group with a singular purpose - can overcome.

At the very least, even if we fall short, the opposition here knows who ran roughshod over them and caused them... to react to us. We turned the tables on them. We put them on the defense.


There is power in numbers. There is More power with a unified force moving to a singular goal. No one worried about who was in charge, no stripes or bars to be won by anyone in the fight. Just a pure desire not to be rolled over and discarded by more powerful forces.


In the coming weeks and months as the looming battle over our gun rights joins, remember what we have accomplished in this one week. Remember how we did it and how it feels right now in this instant.

Then when the assault on our rights start in earnest, cinch up your boot laces and tighten your belt and join the battle again. The stakes will be far higher, the battle longer with fewer clear signs of winning. But you will be ready and prepared knowing we did it here on the home front. Setting and reminding others that it can be done.

So yes, let the message and the news of our battle here spread across the nation. Let this too be written and remembered by our brothers and sisters in arms across the nation. Let them say - those guys did it - so can we.

It is true. We joined, and we swayed the opposition. The win might not be totally ours as of yet. But we made them blink. They are reacting to us - ordinary citizens standing for our rights and basics freedoms.

Each of us showing the way, providing the path easy for others to follow.

Sportsmen acting in concert with the various factions within our community came together and made this happen.

In the months ahead - this sort of INDIVIDUAL ACTION as part of the larger group is going to be vital to our cause!!


The anti's are nothing to be scared of. They are to be respected for what and who they are, but they can be beat.


Be proud!

Bump -

In light of todays new that the show is postponed - this is even more important to think about and apply in the coming months.

Great work. You can bet the politicians are taking note. This past election taught me to get off my duff and get involved. Better some time and money no or worse later. Remember to reward the vendors who helped us out. I placed a few orders, the first to Boondock. Make sure you add a thank you comment to the order. Even a small order helps send the message.
