We lost this member. Will you take his place?

Gunskee them

A long-time GSL member called me yesterday.  I’ve known the man for close to twenty years and he’s been a member for almost as long.

“I just can’t be associated with Guns Save Life any longer,” he said.

"Why's that?" I asked, thinking I heard sarcasm in his voice.

He talked of how GSL’s support for President Trump makes him ill.  “The man has pissed off America’s strongest ally, Germany.  He’s wrecking our country.  Even worse, he’s Putin’s stooge.”

“I think you should take a break from the mainstream media, my friend,” I told him.  “Trump’s been good for our gun rights.  Hillary would have been a disaster.”

“Ah, baloney.  Hillary would not have taken our guns away any more than Obama did.  That was all just a ruse to scare people. And the media are the only honest people out there reporting on this idiot [Trump] and his scandal-plagued administration,” he replied.

He concluded the call by saying he could not in good conscience remain a member.

In response, I told him I would notify our membership team of his wishes.

I’m sorry to lose this man’s membership.

Will you step up and take this man’s place on our membership rolls?  Better still, will you sign up a friend to make us even stronger?  After all, freedom is not a spectator sport.

You can or renew here.  Or you can download a hard copy suitable for printing and mailing.  Put a note in the margin to let us know you’re signing up to replace this lost member.  

Thank you in advance for your support.

    I already renewed my membership this month even though I escaped to South Texas. I know the good work you do for all of us

    Germany is our greatest ally?  The mainstream media honest?  

    Dementia sucks, doesn't it?

    Uhh .. was this guy an Illinois resident?  Does he have a FOID?

    "… have not been adjudicated by a court as a mental defective or ordered by a court, board or authorized entity to in-patient or out-patient mental health treatment."

    Oh.  It says adjudicated.  Got it.  He might want to lay low …

    Why would we be concerned about pissing off Merkel?  She doesn't speak for all Germans.  Are we to go down the same path?  To allow anyone in who desires to come?  How about millions of refugees who love that we're not in war and we're prosperous for now, but still think we should have sharia law.  That's the policy Hillary wanted: open borders, end of story.

    Never underestimate the influance politics has on people.  My 3 sons attended a Catholic  School and I worked with strong Catholics that would go to a Friends of the NRA meeting on Saturday night, attend mass on Sunday, participate in a Right to Life meeting on Monday, and vote straight Democrat on Tuesday.  No amount of logic will change their minds.                           I hear," My Grandpa and my dad voted Democrat so I gotta vote Democrat too.  

    The only thong worse than the uninformed is the missinformed.

      …and don't forget the incurable delusional who actually believe the "lamestream media", the hardcore unionists that demonize anyone non-union and non-democRAT but yet live their personal lives conservativly, complaining daily about the very criminalistic politicians they put into office and the taxes they have to pay on their inflated wages and benefits!

    Krikey.  Germany?  Honest mainstream media?  

    Just sayin's right:  This guy should lay low.

    Sorry, I'm already a member.  So's the wife and kids.  I would sign up the dog, but he can't pay for his own dog food right now as it is.  And he's not AKC registered, so I can't even rent him out to service the ladies.

    What is his name?  Bernie?  Or maybe Ira?

    It takes some willful ignorance to brush away Hillary's gun control pledges.

    Stupid is as stupid does. 

    Could he cite an example of where the MSM is honest? 

  9. ken on June 1, 2017 at 11:26 am

    Was gonna ask if the idiot was whittemore but I see he's already commented. 

    Musta been one of the circle-jerkers, though, cause very few gun owners are so downright STUPID. 

    No great loss, as Stephen King would write.

    Right here, sugar plum.

  11. Thirdpower on June 1, 2017 at 3:13 pm

    That does remind me. I do need to renew. 

  12. Bill1 on June 1, 2017 at 10:13 pm

    Ok John you may have known this man but it sounds like he has drunk the coolaid. The Russian stuff is a hoax, and germany has gone off the deep end. 

    Sounds like the guy wasnt really a true pro-gunner if you know what i mean

      Forgot to add; Trump stopped TPP and just got the USA out of the stupid Paris Climate treaty. The Paris ordeal would have cost the USA over 3 trillion dollars and 6 million jobs by 2030. Even the stupid left wing New York Times had to admit it would not have helped the earth.

      A little heads up for the Paris Treaty to have worked the USA would have had to reduce our population, simply put we would have had to sterilize our people

    The man is stupid. There i said it

  14. Old Number 3 on June 3, 2017 at 4:48 pm

    He believes the media but he doesn't believe Hellary when she looked the camera in the lens and said Heller was wrong and she would change it? SMH.

  15. Wondering on June 14, 2017 at 12:50 pm

    His name wasn't James Hodgkinson, was it?

    • Wondering on June 14, 2017 at 12:58 pm

      Sorry.
