    Evidently the people who ran Obama's campaign (Gibbs etc.) are going to be mass marketing gun control.

    Now we all know mass market techniques work on the low information groups and others.

    How do we keep mass marketing anti gun, mind control, political techniques from being used on the general public and against the Constitution and Second Amendment?

    Where are the pros on this stuff?

    Sure gun control will reduce gun crime. Just look at how well the war on drugs has reduced drug crimes!

    That's the message I would be shouting - don't attack the symptoms, go after the root cause - criminals.

    New buzz word is "gun safety measures". Gun control didn't test well in focus groups.

    Well, regardless of all the talk, we still await our marching orders due to come from Obama's "exec orders". the marketing is likely to see how much the public will stomach.

    I think the momentum is currently on our side and we have to continue pushing back.

    Maybe the solution is to do a 'reefer job' on unjust gun laws that subvert the Second Amendment and the Constitution. ;)
    Fire to fire, water to water, air to air, earth to earth, reefer to reefer?

    A Russian take on things, one good turn deserves another....

    Imagine you were a large corporation and you just landed the advertising account for ending gun violence assault. How would you spend your billion dollars? Would you change existing statistics in your favor for one?

    Perhaps I should clarify that I am not opposed to ending gun violence but I am opposed to Gun Control.

    Well we just need to do some "mass marketing" of our own. Donate to the NRA/ILA, it costs money to get our side out there.

    And don't put all your eggs in one basket. There's Landmark Legal Foundation, the Second Amendment Foundation, Freedomworks, Gun Owners of America, National Gun Rights, SOFA to name a few.

    Add to the list if you would...let's muster up support.

    The assault is against you (not assault weapons although a misnomer) by these people. They got the assaulter (if such a word) in chief elected and now they'll turn on you. We need to be vigilant and watch their moves. I wouldn't be surprise if George Soros is close by. Please join the NRA. BT100dc
