Wonder why I bother, to be honest.
You are needed, way more than people convey. I often am working when these events take place and I cant thank you enough for taking so much personal time, effort, and money to do what you do.

I appreciate everything you do, here, with MSI, and at the shooting events.

Thank you Paul.

Just like writing a letter to Frosh to support the 2A. Do I think it will have any effect on his votes, hell no, but I still do write him and ask for his support and put full effort into my letters.

Now, the people who just sit there criticizing everyone else and putting all the idea's down are the ones who aren't helping the cause.
I try not to. It's just I wonder how many people who see the "it won't do anything" actually don't do anything.

I know we aren't all perfect, and I don't expect everyone to do everything, I just wish more people where more involved.

I'll be the first to admit, when I first got into this 'hobby' after moving back to MD, yes I didn't hold much hope for change, our elected officials being one reason why.

That said I have been a bit more vocal even though I don't comment about it here, when they passed Castle Doctrine, I sent my round of thank you e-mails out.

I am trying to become more active, but as someone rather new to being involved, it does get a bit frustrating at times when you see the hypocrisy your trying to fight.

Don't forget about being a force multiplier.

Let all your MD gun buddies who are not members of the forum know what's going on, and get them sending in letters and emails also.

Wait until you've been doing it for a while. Then the hypocrisy in Annapolis pales to that of the majority of your fellow firearm owners who do, quite literally, nothing to help our mutual cause.

Aside from CrazyAl, everyone else I'd consider a buddy is on this forum...

(Aside from work I don't really go out much, except to the range.)


Boondock Saint - Born and raised in MD, had a few years of 'freedom' in Va, the level of hypocrisy in MD and fed gov absolutely sickens me.

I'll agree there, I notice most owner's/hobbyist's just bitch and moan, I did too for a while, I've just in the past 24 months tried my hand at actually being active aside from just being an NRA member.

Let's not forget the ones who are pro-gun but all or nothing.

Or the politicians who say they are pro-2A but are more concerned with being the 1st one to the plate than a focused, directed strategy.

But we keep going

I'm sure the mention of "conventional weapons" in this clip will just ensure Frosh feels justified in calling us "nuts".

So, would it be appropriate, then, to have anyone who wants a permit to use Conaway's permit application as a template, and then if denied and not overturned by the Board, to sue for discrimination?
