Action Item - Ask Laura Berman, "How many is enough?"

from Kurt Amesbury, J.D.
National States Director

In her recent column, Gun owners who truly believe the power of weapons express themselves, Laura Berman of the Detroit News opines that, "A few true stories [about the successful use of firearms in self-defense] can't -- shouldn't -- do that [change her perception that a "shall issue" law in Michigan would be a bad thing.]

I have written to Ms. Berman asking her to name a number... any number... that would be "enough" stories of successful self-defense to change her mind. My thinking is as follows: If she names a number that is outrageous, say 100 million, then she has identified herself as a fraud. No amount of proof is going to change her mind.

But if she names a more reasonable total - say on the order of 1,000 or even 5,000, we should be able to actually SEND her that many examples... and I will call on you to begin the deluge as soon as we have a figure to "shoot" at.

Until we do, I think it's pointless to try to sway her. She'll just keep raising the bar. For example, she has already received over 400 e-mails, 30 letters and a book... and refers to the stories therein as "a few."

That's where YOU can help. Write to Ms. Berman. Cite her article. Ask her, "How many stories of the successful use of guns to stop crime and save lives do you need before you are willing to switch sides and actively SUPPORT a "shall issue" Michigan concealed carry law?"

If anyone gets an answer, please contact me at once!

A strong body makes the mind strong. As to the species of exercises, I advise the gun. While this gives moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise, and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be the constant companion of your walks.
