The small numbers of fanatics and extremists keep pushing this agenda and getting the press. It is time to push back.
Contact your local press and tell them you are tired of one sided press. Contact national organizations with a simple handwritten letter. Enough of them actually affect how they view things. People like NetFlix, PBS, and others respond to a real audience being there.
Remember the people that attacked Donahue by writing and going to his advertisers. Well write the advertisers and companies that support the badly misreported issues of gun violence. Stress that constantly laying it at the feet of legal gun owners and responsible citizens is wrong. What about legal alternatives other than illegal Red Flag Laws to dealing with individuals that should not own or possess firearms.
When the press do a good job of actually reporting legal self defense by citizens, drop them an email thanking them for actually showing a more balanced view of the gun debate.
Join organizations that are actually in the fight like GOA. NRA is becoming a toothless giant in the minds of many. Let us hope that they will well and truly use their political might at this very important juncture.
In short, register, vote, and get involved.
