It is so easy to get discouraged by all of the anti-unalienable rights gibberish and confusion we hear in the public arena these days. So much of it comes from people who just don’t know any better, intellectually-honest people who could be brought around to the truth if only they heard it from someone they might tend to trust more than others. So then, when thinking about it, if the public discussion or debate concerned some other topic, who would you tend to trust or considered to be more credible than others, whether an individual or group? Someone in your own political party, obviously. But for another, among many others, someone of your own gender, whether male or female.
It occurred to me this morning, while reading some other threads here, how so encouraging it is for me, individually, as a man, to see and hear the ladies stand up and speak up for our unalienable rights, particularly our right to life and our right to acquire, keep and bear arms to protect ourselves from tyranny. There is just something about it, something about seeing ladies stand up in public and tell the truth about our God-given right to keep, bear and use arms that strikes me as being so much more effective in reaching the public, especially in reaching other ladies, than with men. And while we need to be making every long-term, endless effort to be teaching our school children about these rights and the prices that have been paid down through our American history to protect these rights, our most important immediate need seems to be reaching those ladies in the suburbs that pollsters are continually talking about.
USCCA seems to do a pretty good job at putting ladies in the forefront, and so does the NRA. But we need much more of it, ladies armed not only with their firearms but also with the facts, to be active spokespersons for the cause. And it doesn’t have to be so all serious and debate oriented, either. It can be fun, like taking someone to the range with you, or as one of the ladies on this forum suggested, throw a holster party. Or have lady guest speakers at your clubs or whatever. You ladies know how to do it. All of that is best left to you.
