Had an interesting day so far.Morning was the NRA Grassroots volunteer workshop. The basic goal is to get good, accurate, and interesting information out to gun owners to get them interested and active in politics. It’s the legal and moral way to vote twice (or more!) in an election. The really interesting program they talked about, though, was the NRA university program.
This is a packaged presentation that NRA-ILA describes as a “two-hour training seminar for college students interested in learning more about NRA, the Second Amendment, gun safety, legislative threats to gun rights and the gun control debate. NRA-ILA staff will travel to a college campus and provide seminar attendees with the tools they’ll need to become more effective activists in the fight to protect our freedom, both on and off campus.” This is the kind of thing we need to do, get into colleges and help the young adults who have a desire to fight the collectivist indoctrination endemic in today’s institutes of higher education. This is a program that needs expanding – the earlier we can get the truth about guns to people, the less effective the lies of the anti-freedom crowd will be.
