Where is our Counter Attack in Defense of the 2nd Amendment?

In his legendary and the definitive work on the conduct of warfare, The Art of War, Sun Tzu wrote:

So it is said that if you know your enemies and know yourself, you can win a hundred battles without a single loss.
If you only know yourself, but not your opponent, you may win or may lose.
If you know neither yourself nor your enemy, you will always endanger yourself.

Our Second Amendment is under an intensive attack on several fronts and the conservative community stands in front of that attack like a deer in the headlights on a dark night.
Case on point: Read the Email below that I received this morning.

I am on the mailing lists of several "Democratic" organizations because the Democrats gleefully publish their attack plans to their followers in order to fire up the masses to support their agenda.

In the mean time, the Republican / Conservative community attacks its various members for being "not conservative enough" or "too radically conservative" or a dozen other charges to keep its members entertained and bickering among themselves as those in "leadership" positions scramble to be on the top of the heap of drowning rats as the ship sinks below the horizon.

I recently attended a meeting of the local Republican Party "leadership" in which more than three hours was dedicated to the passionate arguments over the minutia of Robert's Rules of Order. When I returned home that evening, I had received no less than a half dozen Emails from Barack Obama, Michelle Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, and a couple from the DCCC during that same period of time.

This coming Saturday, the 23rd of February (223...cute), there will be a gathering here in Las Vegas to show our support for the 2nd Amendment...
Drunks locked in a bar with a found credit card decrying the evils of drink.

I applaud the efforts of local patriots who are organizing this effort and the courage of a local business willing to host the event.

But where in the name of God is the national counter offensive?
Will there even be a token cub reporter from our esteemed Las Vegas Review Journal?
Will we even get a five second honorable mention in the national "news"?
I think not.

The weapon of choice in this "information age" is propaganda which is enabled by the mass media and social networking.

The Democrats have mastered this weapons system and are honing their skills every hour of every day.

And the Republicans give us Karl Rove.

I am a registered Republican and I typically vote Republican whenever it is a sane and rational thing to do.

I have remained registered as a Republican for the last half century because until about 2010 I still believed that I could contribute to steering the debate and discussion in a meaningful and patriotic direction.

I no longer believe that.

I believe that We The People need to quit looking up the backside of the Republican Party expecting manna from heaven while consistently getting something less desirable.

I believe that We The People must look to our local leadership - get behind true conservatives in every race and reestablish the Republic that our founders envisioned.

I believe that We The People need to reassert our authority over the self-appointed demigods in Washington; render them impotent over us and return them to the role envisioned for them at the birth of this country.

And if there is any hope for us as a nation, then we must master and effectively deploy today's nuclear arsenal in this war being waged in the mass media.

My position is neither high nor mighty, and if I had a nickel, I'd probably throw it your way to support your efforts, (including, to help you get more sleep.) I am glad you fought for me and my freedoms, but your lack of simple editing irritated me as do others who don't edit their remarks.

Rudy M.

You want to hold my what for a nickel?

I have been called many things, many not printable although verifiable.

I have never been called ignorant.

I am a two tour Vietnam veteran as is my father before me.

I have lived in more than two dozen countries and speak more than a half dozen languages.

I have taught in some of the most respected universities in this country.

I work twelve to eighteen hours a day supporting a variety of conservative causes and use my software company to provide pro bono support for a number of local campaigns.

I realize that in your high and might position in life that it is beyond your comprehension that perhaps I just might have been a bit over tired when I posted the article at 0430 in the morning.

I will try to finish my first morning pot of coffee before I post anything in the future.

And I don't need or want your nickel.

For Rudy McGillvray

You remember when Republican States were the Blue States... ABC News was the one who changed it under Bush. This was an Alinsky side step to mask the Red Communist comparison.

P.S. I just want to get this out in front of those who may be paying attention, LINCOLN was a REPUBLICAN a card carrying member of the PARTY OF FREEDOM. Also Martin Luther King, and whole states that voted  Repulican, were once colored BLUE.

Does anyone remember the term TRUE BLUE? Well before the Libs changed our color of our votes,  all us so-called Red staters lived in blue states.

Two serious mistakes in the above blog,  (Rogers) Rules of Order. and a "dear" in the headlights, Here are your corrections; first it's ROBERT'S Rules of Order, and a 'DEER in the headlights'. Now perhaps you think that I am behaving like all those other Repubs arguing over noneties. However if you do not correct your mistakes, you lend credence to those who are against you (Dem/Libs).Also, they (the D/L's) will pounce on anything to show everyone your ignorance. So please, edit your comments before you publish. Thank You.

     Close the American borders. Secure the United States of America.  The constant influx

of illegal’s is a physical danger to the citizens of the United States of America. The daily

influx of illegal’s is a national security issue. The illegal’s are an economical problem.

Why won’t BH Obama secure the US borders? It is estimated that 11.2 million illegal’s

entered America last year. Obama reward’s them. Why? Obama has a sneaky plan - he

wants to turn the US, Canada and Mexico into the North American Union. Maniacal BH

Obama, also, wants their vote. He thinks he has the power to wave his political dirty 

hands and his will be done, because he believes his own press, that he is the one and only

BH Obama. The neutered US Congress set on their over paid buttocks and warm the


     If the setting members of Congress do not agree with the governing documents of the

USA, they have no right, setting in the hallow halls of the US Government. If these

over-paid one’s do not protect and uphold the US Constitution  they can give up

their benefits and go home. It is that simple. It is not negotiable. It is the citizens way

or the highway. This applies to the one and only Obama, the traitor, as well. The gravy

train is over.

Billy B.,

Have not seen you around lately...Glad to see you are still kicking.

As for the Dick Act of 1902..REALITY CHECK.

The Dick Act of 1902 is a law passed by Congress - SO IS THE NDAA.

Looking at the Dick Act of 1902 as some sort of a talisman of safety and security is not unlike a sailor from a ship sinking into the ocean swimming towards a piece of flotsam only to ultimately discover that it is a lead bowl momentarily floating on an encapsulated pocket of air.

It is a Law passed by Congress.

It can be repealed by Congress at any time without reason.

Or the traitors can do what they always do...

They simply attach what may appear as a totally innocuous clause written in such a way that most lawyers cannot understand it to something like a medicare funding bill and ....POOF! it is GONE!

Semper Vigilantes!  Always Vigilant.

We have people here in Vegas who attend every meeting of our state legislature and read and study every bill as written and keep the public informed of who is doing what at the state level. It is not enough but it is a beginning.

I have been wondering myself. In Colorado 2 of the legislators ahve said some unbelieveable crap and hardly a chirp. Well social media has been ablaze but nothing from our leaders. We should be shoving this down their throats.
