As much as we like to meme and talk about going “inna woods” and “clappin in the boog” we have to remember to truly understand what we stand for lest you become one of the useless idiots in another propaganda machine. Learn and understand the values we as a group believe in and then challenge them and form your own opinions. At the end of the day we’re all here because we believe in and support our naturally given right as a people to bear arms but ultimately we have to understand why we hold this right so dearly.
This right ensures we remain a free people on equal standing with our government. It ensures that we get a choice in how we live our lives. This right protects our means of fighting back against those that seek to encroach on and do away with our other rights. To do that though we have to understand and be able to explain our reasoning to those that are either on the fence or plain don’t agree that we naturally have this right.
We need to be well versed in the philosophy and the practicality of our arguments and be level headed and eloquent enough to make those arguments to win people over. Make no mistake, the battle being fought right now is in court rooms and the minds of our fellow citizens. If we do nothing but insult and dismiss those that don’t agree with us then we are no better than them.
Take the statistics and the philosophies we hold to be true and challenge them. Search for information that could prove you wrong and make up your own mind about what that means. Instead of holding staunchly to the often repeated lines we like to throw out, form your own well informed opinion and argue that, because at the end of the day what we are really fighting for is the ability to freely make up your mind about an issue and have that voice be heard.
If we can capture the hearts and minds of the people and convince them that our beliefs are in their best interests then we won’t ever have to fire a single round. We’ll win the fight before it happens. We won’t ever have to organize and respond to a red flag stepping because nobody will support it and the public outrage will quash it before it happens. Public opinion is everything, it’s the difference between being seen as a “ammosexual nut job” and a person who stood up to tyranny.
I know this is easier said than done but we have to try because if we ever do have to take it to armed conflict to protect ourselves we have to be able to deal with the aftermath. It’s not gonna be a “well we killed all the steppers and everything is good now” situation. It’s gonna be a state of chaos and if we win we have to be able to be the leaders that know our shit and can implement the changes we need to never have to face something like that again.
Read. Learn. Challenge your beliefs. Git gud at talking to and convincing people.
Thank you for coming to my ted talk and continue with the feet gat pics.

Yawn. 🤤 That looks long, serious, and boring. Show bobs and vagine. Shoot a propane can with Barbie doll duct taped to it.

This is all well and good, but frankly you lost me at “statistics and philosophies”.
I’m familiar with the facts. Most of us are familiar with the facts. We’re up against the wall right now because *the facts do not matter*. There is no test for rationality in politics.
There are people that can be reached with logic, or with a trip to the range, and those people absolutely are worth the time effort.
Bloomberg doesn’t take the stance he does because he doesn’t know the facts though. He takes the stance he does because your freedom and safety are not of value to him, and it is in his rational best interest for you to be disarmed. The same goes for numerous other people in high places — such as those who control the platforms we use for discussion.
Articulate people *are* out there arguing. Every online discussion I see where guns come up, our side is represented in force. Well rehearsed talking points, properly sanitized for the masses, can be found in pretty much all news discussions about guns. We are often censored, or banned, or downvoted to oblivion, but people are there getting the message out. Failure to articulate facts is simply not why we are losing the fight.
Honestly, if Russia wants to make us part of a cyber warfare campaign, I’m fine with that. It weakens the US geopolitically for strife to exist. That’s why they do it. I value my individual rights more than I value the US’s geopolitical ambitions though, so our interests actually align on this matter.
Those who would oppress you will not be swayed by philosophical arguments about firearms allowing humans to resist oppression. They get that. That is the entire point.

You nerf-totin civvies need to calm down. If you had one Patriotic bone in your wide-bodies you would realize we are a society with LAWS. If the idea that you should leave the use of force to the good hard men of LEOMIL bothers you than maybe it’s about time for a harsh lesson!
