Gun Rights And Retirees

Camaraderie is part of what MDS is about. Hanging out on this forum, blowing off steam, getting the right guy to do that difficult job at your house, or posting absurd humorous threads that have no purpose but to entertain.

Itís also about YOUR Gun Rights.

If you care
If you can walk
Your ass should be out here holding a flag or a sign.

A note from your wife or doc is the only excuse acceptable.

There were a measly 8 MoFoís joining one Dick Heller out in front of the UNITED STATES CAPITOL to counter the gun control ďdie inĒ today. WTH!? There were only 2 of us retired guys out there. Unacceptable! Dick turns to me and says, ďAre there any more coming?Ē I gotta tell ya, I was a little embarrassed.

Other than that, it was fun and that camaraderie was there. Where were you?

This was a short pep talk. Now think about your duty to get yer old ass out there next time!

I get your point.

I trust the almost nine hour road trip each way is a decent excuse for yours truly.

PS. Thanks for stepping up.

Still earning a living, my brother. And not with the leeway I used to have.

But your point is a good one, and appreciated.

Same here. I was up in Harrisburg delivering transmissions today; with my wee little post-retirement part time job.

Thank you for attending the counter protest.

Not retired but my schedule aloud me to join the fight today and I must say I had a great time today. I haven't been able to make many events over the last couple years do to some personal issues but with them almost in hand I will be attending more often. For those who haven't attended, it should be on your bucket list. I have always had a great time at every event. Our 6-8 block walk with one of the guest speakers of the die in, was both enjoyable and enlightening. I believe we made an impact to her opinion and view of the gun community.

I thank you guys. I was taking care of a few things today prior to corporate coming into town tomorrow.
My boss is on vacation and I was not able to take off.

I feel badly about not being there in support.

Youíre working and you have a responsibility to your job and your family. Retirees have the time and should be there.

My arthritis is fired up after today, but Iíll be alright. Some canít make it for health reasons, but why werenít a dozen retirees at a minimum out there today? Should have been 3 dozens!

Not to be a party pooper BUT...


I sense a disturbance in the force contributing to this as well.

I get rumblings of continuing interpersonal issues that while they shouldn’t outweigh issues of this import, may just impact turnout. People don’t spend time with other folks who they either don’t like or are uncomfortable with. That’s life. Even for things as critical as our Second Amendment. Harmony is pretty key imo.

Meh. What do I know?

Yeah, people can get butt hurt, so we move on. So then, there should have been 34 retirees out there. Not sure why youíre sidetracking my point of retirees showing up instead of watching Price Is Right, for some other non-related issue.
