    The similarities are quite striking and very soul-stirring!
    This is exactly the type of thing I'm shooting for. Local groups getting together and doing their own thing locally to expand the base.

    Everyone think about 2 or 3 family members, friends, and/or neighbors you shoot with and talk shop. THAT is your gun club, at least to start out. Maybe you guys go to a particular range to shoot, but your fellowship is YOUR club.

    Each of your friends, has a friend or two that likes guns. Bring them into the club, and now its already grown exponentially from 3 or 4 to 8 or 12. Its a Ponzi scheme, but in a good way rather than as a rip off.

    Now that small clubs form in each town, they all get together at the county level. That is now something a lot bigger than how it started, with just a few guys and/or gals drinking a few beers together in someone's backyard.

    Different groups from different towns are getting together to shoot, train, and plan for some political activism. Some groups decide that on this or that Saturday, they're going to go picket at the State Court house or County building in their area.

    Before we know it, we've got lots of smaller, tight knit groups all ready for some political action, getting to know each other in larger county-wide gatherings.

    Now we start pulling them all together at the state level, and we're cooking with gas.

    Offer up plenty of literature, classes for those that want to know more about the Constitution and the Founders, and more of the People are getting back to their roots and the legacy of Liberty that our Fore Fathers left us.

    Most Americans love Freedom. Let us stir that passion by joining with like-minded Patriots and reviving what we have lost in our communities.

    Word of mouth and friendship recruitment that promotes Liberty and the American Way can beat the slick political campaigns run by shysters that could care less about the average American.

    To all here today as i sit an write these lines You have to be very involved. while i was at chemo i read the art of war by sun su. this about the 40th time i have read it and IT STILL MAKES sense to me. The federalist papers are very good reading also . Just because i have a down day i do not try to let any day escape without learning something . CARPE DEIM seize the day . If everybody kinda get into this mode there is no telliing what we can accomplish i have seen many victories just by the change of attitude . If we really look at the courts outcome we havent lost WE HAVE WON AGAINST THE STATE GOVERNMENT ! Yes it was only the 7 vs 10 but ita still a victory . we will win the whole enchiladad its gonna take a little more time and OUR COMMITMENT TO THE CAUSE . ROME WASNT BUILT IN A DAY !

    Update:

    I had a fantastic conversation with a gentleman today about securing a venue for our Meet and Greet, and hopefully we'll know the location in just a few days for sure once we nail down approval for its use.

    If we're given the go ahead for the location, we are planning the meeting for just a few weeks from now.

    Already looking into setting up our second meetings as well.

    More details to follow soon!

    Is anyone able to pick me up in Kingston? I currently don't drive, but I'm willing to give gas money.

    Will need to confirm that I will be available that day. If so, is there any interest in a carpool from the Syracuse / Auburn area?

    Here are the details I promised earlier:

    We will be meeting at the Ontario Rod & Gun Club | A Great Place To Shoot on Saturday, February 22nd. The meeting start time will be 10 AM, but we will be on site at 8 AM to socialize and whatnot.

    523 Trimble Road
    Ontario, New York 14519
    315-524-7717


    We can hold about 60 in the club house, so PLEASE RSVP as soon as possible so we can make the necessary arrangements for lunch, etc. If we have interest from more than 60 people, I'll talk to the club President and see what we can do, but 60 is the number we're shooting for.

    There will be a lunch, and right now we're looking at a likely minimum of $10.00 for that, maybe a bit more depending on the catering options. Otherwise, there will be no other expenses for the meeting or range time, but donations will be accepted that go strictly to the club, for those so inclined.

    For the meeting, I will have an agenda and outline prepared. I will either email it so everyone can print a copy if they want one, display it on their smart phone or Ipad, and/or I'll have printed copies on hand. Be prepared with questions and suggestions please.

    There will be an opportunity to shoot on the range after the meeting and lunch.

    The Rules:

    Please leave ALL long guns cased in your vehicle until the instruction to take them out is given.

    Guns will remain cased to be brought out onto the range and until the go ahead is given to take them out.

    NO guns are allowed in the club house where the meeting and lunch will be held. CCW permit holders can PM me if there is an issue with this, and we can talk about it there.

    Everyone please bring ear and eye protection if you desire to shoot on the range.

    The general rule for the range will be to "Wait until instructed." There will be range instructors on hand to explain further.

    NO ALCOHOL. The club does not have a bar, and for liability reasons no alcohol is allowed on the premises.

    Ontario Rod & Gun has very generously opened their doors to us, and they are asking nothing in return. Indeed, it has been expressed to me that they are honored to serve as the venue for our first meeting.

    Therefore, everyone please respect the rules!

    Any questions, please feel free to post here, or PM me.

    We need a Head Count at least one week ahead of the meeting, so the sooner everyone signs up, the better. Please RSVP in a PM to me, and please only do so if you are committed to coming. A PM with your phone number and name would help greatly.

    For those down state that feel this is too far to travel, I am trying to arrange a second meeting that would be more centrally located for that. However, I encourage folks down state to attend if possible to get out to meet other NYF members and spend some time shooting with them, even if it means a bit of a drive. If we want to get anything done in this state, we're all going to need to put the time and effort in.

    I would like to thank everyone for their interest and enthusiasm, and hope to see a good turn out.

    I'd like to especially thank Ontario Rod & Gun Club for their hospitality, and look forward to seeing everyone on the 22nd.

    MOLON LABE


    EDIT:

    For the sake of clarity, Ontario Rod & Gun Club has a pistol range, and they are NOT a gun free zone in any way, shape, or form. Everyone coming to the event is welcome to bring their hand guns, and even though the club's SAFETY rules (even for members) state NO guns in the club house, no one is going to be doing pat downs either. That should make things clear enough for everyone.

    If anyone can't figure it out after reading that, then PM me and I will help you sort it out.

    Count me in for sure. I've invited a couple friends, but no confirmation from them yet. If not, anyone who wants to carpool from Herkimer/Utica area, let me know.

    While marking my calendar, I noticed it was George Washington's Birthday! How appropriate. Hope he's watching!
