How To Stop It
Adding A Strategy To Get Sane Gun Laws Now
BACKGROUND: Polls consistently show there are 100 million Americans that want sane gun laws. They all do one thing in common—they spend money. By focusing their buying power, we can force the legislators to do the right thing instead of asking, presenting all the rational reasons and having, in most cases, virtually no chance to succeed. Polls also consistently show that of the 4 million NRA members, over 75% want sane gun laws. That means there are at most 1 million extremists that do not want any gun laws along with a corrupt NRA leadership.

Our Insane Gun Laws
Guns can be carried concealed in 49 states and openly in 43 states. Guns are not registered and gun owners are not licensed. Criminals and the mentally ill can purchase guns at gun shows where background checks are not required. Suspected terrorists on the No-Fly list can legally buy as many guns as they want. In many states guns can be carried into the everyday places where you live your life – restaurants, offices, bars, supermarkets, schools, libraries, sporting arenas – and the list keeps growing. See graphic Your Increasing Risk of Being a Victim of Gun Violence.
Gun owners in 25 states and counting can use Stand Your Ground to kill at will anyone any time they feel threatened. Several states already allow guns on college campuses and there is a push to force all college campuses to allow guns. In many states public universities are barred from keeping guns off their campuses. Gun free zones around neighborhood schools are being repealed. In many states, gun owners can bring their guns into the State Capitol while legislative sessions are underway. There are a groups of gun owners insisting laws be passed to allow them to bring guns on airplane flights.
US gun laws are not sane. They are not based on public safety but on maximizing sales for the gun industry. Find out how the NRA prevents sane gun laws from being enacted.
Sane gun laws will simultaneously protect the Second Amendment right of the legal gun owner and the non-gun owner’s rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness as written in the Declaration of Independence.
The NRA Cannot Defeat This
Our economic lever cannot be overcome because we outnumber the NRA’s “extremist” faction by minimally 100 to 1. To establish the economic lever, NGAC will initiate targeted boycotts. Find out why we will be starting with Starbucks on Valentine’s Day 2012.
