August fundraiser begins today [sticky; new posts below; FRIDAY UPDATE; TUESDAY (FINAL) UPDATE]
Just a few more months to what may just be the biggest election in this country’s history, and I need — yes, need, and desperately so — to raise the capital for at least one very good and reliable all-purpose rifle, one that I can use for defense, close quarter combat, hunting, and maybe even as a melee weapon.
Thanks to all the gun aficionados who frequent this site I have a much better understanding now of what that is.
Unfortunately, the kind of thing I need is the kind of thing certain leftwing statists (and David Frum, naturally — whom we shan’t label!) are working feverishly to make very difficult to acquire, if not ban outright.
And as we can no longer rely with any consistency on the supposed “right wing” SCOTUS to protect what are very clearly delineated natural rights from the snowballing audacity of a government steeped in cynicism, political correctness, and faux morality, I’d just as soon start hoarding now, while there’s still time, before someone determines for me that I don’t really need what it is I’ve determined I need. For my own good, of course.
So. If you are of the mind to contribute, this is the month to do so — and whatever little extra you have to help me get armed properly will be very very very greatly appreciated. I’ve taken care of the pistols and the qualifying courses and the CCW licenses for both me and my wife; I’ve filled out the application to join a local gun club; I’ve had my oldest son, 8, familiarize himself with a .22 pistol and a .22 rifle; I’ve joined the NRA.
Now I need to get handy with a serious rifle and a shotgun. For when the zombies come.
Friday update: Thanks to all who’ve contributed thus far. Right now, I’m between roughly 1/4 – 1/3 of the way to where I hope to be.
The year’s biggest Colorado gun show is at the Denver Merchandise Mart this weekend. Looks like I’ll be going on Sunday. At which point, the future zombie hordes had better start to take notice…
Tuesday update: I’ll keep this post up through tomorrow. Thanks again to those who’ve contributed. I’m still a couple hundred dollars off of where I hope to be, but I realize times are tough, and stocking up on freeze-dried foodpacks can get expensive.
Anything you can do to get me to the finish line in these next couple days would be greatly appreciated.
