Some of the most important aspects of continued firearm ownership are.
- People who will protect those rights, all of them no matter what. Which excuse will you accept for not protecting your rights?
- People who respect and understand at all times that firearm ownership has responsibilities that go far beyond just being a “safe” sport, “filling the pot” or is a luxury that has occasional uses for self defence. Firearm ownership has rights that need protection.
- Organisations which are not motivated by filling membership lists and gathering money and protect those rights to the fullest and never stop.
- Organisations which protect our property and protect our rights as the most valuable thing we have. They are ours until we give them up or give them away.
Firearm ownership or support of firearm ownership is a first requirement to make any firearm organisations existence possible. Protection of the right to ownership is a prime mandate of any firearm organisation.
It is essential for people who join an organisation to ensure the organisations does what is wanted and expected in protecting and forwarding those rights. To expect and demand those rights be protected to the fullest at all times. Silence and inaction is acceptance and acceptance of any wrong is the first step to defeat.
This protective function of all firearm organisations is vital to continued firearm ownership. It includes the public image of firearm owners. Gun control attacks our public image, we need to protect it.
What is your holy grail of firearm ownership? Who is looking after your rights? You, firearm organisations or government? Do you subcontract your rights, property and safety to government or incompetent organisations that don’t care? Do you care enough and values your rights to invest a small amount of your time in protecting your rights and the public image of firearm ownership?
