Yesterday, we asked you if your gun rights were worth five minutes a day. Today, we ask you, how about eight cents a day?
At Saturday’s gun rights rally, which attracted around 1500 people (or, as Fox9 TV put it, "dozens"), GOCRA VP Andrew Rothman said this:
Are your civil rights worth five bucks a month?
The opposition doesn’t have the numbers, but they’ve got the bucks. They have paid lobbyists down here at the Capitol, and in Washington, D.C.
We need those, too. GOCRA, the organization that’s been doing it for the last couple dozen years, that has been doing it with shoestrings and bubble gum.
This year, shoestrings aren’t going to cut it.
If we got just one dollar from each of the 115,000 Minnesota permit holders, we’d have a full-time lobbyist at the capitol.
If we got just one dollar from each of Minnesota’s millions of gun owners, we’d have a staff of ten or 15 working for your rights.
(Oh, and five bucks a month would be sixty bucks a year. Our regular membership is $30 — just $2.50 a month.)
Thanks for helping us fight for your rights!
