Keep in mind.. this may have been one individual that posted it... with no "organized" plan behind it. If one of the 2A groups did it "properly" - with advance notice to their members of the "go live" date, an email push with instruction to sign it THAT DAY, they could likely reach 100,000 signatures in less than 48 hours. It's all a matter of the communications planning behind it... in this case I'm guessing there was NONE.
Perhaps this could be re-posted? Or something with similar wording? What I'm disgusted about is that I sent alerts to SEVERAL 2A organizations - and heard SQUAT from each of them. Crickets. That bothers me more than anything.
However, silver lining... the other one "repeal the NFA" went through. Still sends a message.
