The current political situation requires constant vigilance and your active participation. Write to your senators and representative about gun issues frequently. A post card is enough. Financially support your choice of gun lobby group(s).

So many gun control issues have come up since the election that I have been forced to expand this section to a full page. I am restricting this page to national gun control issues only, but include links to state issue lists. Please visit Cap'n Ball's Gun Control Issues.

Attention Skinners
Don't forget, the anti-gun crowd has already started talking about closing the "muzzleloader loophole".

"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."
--Thomas Jefferson to Peter Carr, 1785.
