Petitions needing more signatures!

Recommended Posts

first, i dont believe signing these petitions do anything at all. nothing. it may be a one line blurb in hussiens daily briefing. he'll look at it, and move on.

second, they could have raised the petition bar because the one guy who actually does have to read them probably go sick of all the different ones coming in, and decided to raise the quota to knock down some of the less popular ones

Done and although I may agree that this is most likely a fruitless attempt at preserving our rights, I do think that the cause is 110% worthy of exhausting every single possibility that we encounter regardless of how effective it may be. That's what the anti's do and it's obviously working out pretty good for them... just my 2 cents.

Guys, it takes seconds to sign off on these even if you think fruitless. However, consider a couple of things: 1) if the battle grows and the antis claim they have dominating support, petitions like these can be used to demonstrate otherwise because they are public record and would need to be turned over; 2) we need to show resound, solidarity, and convinction in our stance and cause, and this is one easy way; and 3) the WH responded to the very petition started on the very same website to have Piers Morgan sent home! Someone is paying attention...

Signed all three. Will be emailing my congressman in couple minutes as well for the millionth time. But this time will be even better considering how they think to make kids safe is taking these guns and mags away, but yet a Philadelphia school yesterday had some random lady walk in who they did NOT question and she took a kid and they were searching for her, don't know if they found them yet or not just woke up lol. But it shows that school security should be more on their mind not guns. Even the news station walked into the school with no problem, wouldn't want people I know going there!

It does something. AT the very least the opposition has already used it publicly as a measurable indication of how correct their position is. If we don't show up, that statement is not easily refuted. We STILL may not get a fair shake when the topic is discussed, but if there isn't anything up there to show, we can't refute that statement.

 

Someone says they are meaningless and too easy to fill out, what does that say about your position if you can't even manage to do that?

Sorry if I came off like a tool but I'm definitely on board by doing whatever I can to fight for our rights including signing petitions. After re-reading my last post, I think I was just overly frustrated, given what's been going on. Keeping tabs on everything that's been happening over the past month and trying to defend gun-ownership has been tiring but I'm 100% in the trenches! In any case, I've been signing anything that I've come across and wrote a ton of letters, emails, and made calls. I've been getting some responses to the emails that I sent but it's all mainly generic type stuff... nothing in response to anything I actually wrote about.

    • Sig P229 Platinum Elite from their Custom Shop. This one breaks my heart to sell. Never fired with the white grips on it. I bought it for a security detail in India and figured the white grips would hide well under light colored garments. The gig fell thru and it has remained a nightstand gun. I took one GFH training class with it. I used the 9mm conversion barrel most often. 2 mags come with it. The factory 12rd mags are in NC. If the ban gets overturned, I will reach out about selling them to you at a reduced price.  ALL NJ requirements must be met and permits at the ready. Willing to meet at your FFL if they are in the Totowa / Bloomingdale area. Or near 287/23/208 vicinity. Will ship to another FFL at your expense.  $1000.00 First I'll take it, gets it. Please understand the terms above before making the commitment.  https://photos.app.goo.gl/GtNps395krKYUiJ2A https://photos.app.goo.gl/zCS39Mhdi9ohCdxW8 https://photos.app.goo.gl/1FTyeyfjMyRFRHEAA   I also have a Sig P229 22lr upper for it that will be posted in the other section. If you are interested in the holsters for it, please IM me.               
    • For sale is a hard to find Glock G26 Gen 4 is FULL FDE. Maybe 2 boxes of ammo thru it. Like the P365, I got if for my girls and they couldn't safely rack the slide.  ALL NJ requirements must be met and permits at the ready. Willing to meet at your FFL if they are in the Totowa / Bloomingdale area. Or near 287/23/208 vicinity. Will ship to another FFL at your expense.  $500 First I'll take it, gets it.

    • For sale is a gently used G19C. I used it for a beginners handgun because of the extremely light recoil the compensator ports create. $450.00. 2  ten round mags are included. I had 15 rounders, but they were sold to a buddy in NC.  ALL NJ requirements must be met and permits at the ready. Willing to meet at your FFL if they are in the Totowa / Bloomingdale area. Or near 287/23/208 vicinity.  $400 First I'll take it, gets it.

    • For Sale - Sig P365 9mm with three 10 round mags. Very low round count. Got this and a G26 for my college aged girls and they lack the hand strength to safety operate them. $450.00. Must follow all NJ Laws and have permits ready to go. Located in Bloomingdale or Totowa area. Willing to travel locally to your FFL, or will ship to another FFL at your expense. I will post a couple of photos and can email more if interested.  First I'll take it, gets it.

    • I'll join the crowd welcoming and second the idea of getting your license issues resolved as soon as you can. You will need matching IDs to buy a gun and any time that you buy ammo.  I know that going to the DMV is a pain in the rear end but it might be easier than explaining why they don't match each time you purchase and carrying a third piece of documentation (the address update from DMV.)
