2nd Amendment supporters need to stay vigilant

Posted 23 November 2016 at 3:14 pm


While supporters of the Second Amendment are taking a big sigh of relief with president-elect Donald J Trump’s victory, I say now is the time to get more active in the cause.

The anti-self defense Left is going to go ballistic, pardon the pun as Trump and the Republican House of Representatives work to repair the tremendous damage 8 years of Obama policy has done to the country on all fronts.

So what can you do? It is good to keep on your local representatives. We are in a pretty safe district here in Orleans County. At least that’s what our representatives tell us when they come to the one S.C.O.P.E meeting every 2 or 4 years to get our support at election time.

“Ouch” I just wish they would attend more and hear from the front line. The truth is we are not safe. We live in a state that is dominated and controlled by extreme corrupt progressives headed by Andrew Coumo that will be doubling down to keep its authoritarian power.

So here is what we have to do now. If you don’t belong to a Second Amendment group join one. There is a S.C.O.P.E chapter pretty much in every county. Attend a S.C.O.P.E. meeting. It’s free and you don’t have to be a member.

The Orleans Country chapter has its meeting on the second Monday of the month at the Hoag Library in Albion at 7 p.m. Just don’t have time? Then you can express your First Amendment right and donate to S.C.O.P.E. There are some hard battles going on in the courts right now and any help with this expense will benefit all of us in the future.

If you care to notice there are businesses in the county that have S.C.O.P.E. literature at their establishments for your consumption. You can obtain this and find out just what you can do to continue the fight to preserve and protect our 2nd Amendment.

The left is on the ropes right now. We have a chance to right this country for the next 40 years with strict constructionist Supreme and Circuit court appointments in the Trump administration. Hold Trump’s feet to the fire and Congress’s. Be vigilant, be involved. We haven’t won anything yet.
