Here’s something to consider: about 19 out of every 20 gun owners don’t really care about gun rights.
Think about that for a second.
You know who they are. You see them all over Internet forums and on social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
They might occasionally “Like” a gun-related picture, or post a little rant about some unconstitutional law, or debate 1911s vs. Glocks, AKs vs. ARs, or .45acp vs. 9mm. But that’s about it.
Only about 5 out of every 100 of us volunteer a little time to the cause, or teach someone new to the sport to how to shoot.
But just ask the other 95% — they’ll be the first to tell you what you (and we) should be doing. (If you’re part of the 95% of non-fighters, you can fix that problem in about 20 seconds, right here and now.)
We receive stacks of emails and comments every day. Many go something along the lines of this: “I demand that you do < x > about < y >.” And about 99.9% of the time, they aren’t a FPC supporter or FPC Official Member.
FPC is a non-profit, grassroots organization. That means we aren’t getting big checks from the gun industry to help us cover our legal and advocacy expenses. We don’t have big PR firms with multi-million dollar marketing contracts to generate income. And we don’t plaster our website with Google ads.
If everyone reading this were to donate just $10 today, we could stop fundraising for a year.
But the sad reality is that a only very small fraction of us (the 5%-ers) will shoulder the load for most of the others (the 95%-ers). Because if you’re a 5%-er, you refuse to stand by and watch gun prohibitionists destroy our rights due to others’ complacency and inaction.
We at FPC consider it a great honor to serve you and fight for your Second Amendment Right to Keep and Bear Arms. If you’re not already among the 5% of gun owners who actually care enough to take a stand and invest in freedom, we hope that you’ll change that today.
