Enjoy The Holiday Season-- Then Get Ready To Hit The Ground Running In ‘06!

Wednesday, November 23, 2005

With the holiday season now upon us, we hope you enjoy your time with family and friends.  Thanks to your continued activism, we achieved some monumental victories this year; victories that simply would not have been possible without your support and hard work.

However, as we saw on Election Day 2005, our fight is far from over, and we cannot rest on our laurels.  The enemies of our freedom are redoubling their efforts to win back what they've lost in recent years, and they are using the results of some of this year's elections as their launching pad for 2006.  The anti-gun drumbeat, trying to convince politicians and the electorate that supporting the Second Amendment is a losing proposition, has already begun in earnest.  Rest assured this vitriol will continue right up through Election Day 2006.

While the next few weeks will allow us time to catch our breath, our respite will be over when the calendar turns to 2006.  Not only must we work to advance our legislative agendas in Congress and the states, but we must remain eternally vigilant in turning back the inevitable attacks on our firearm freedoms that the anti-gunners have in store for us.  And, we must once again ramp up our top-notch grassroots battle plan in preparation for an extremely busy election year.

We know we will again be able to count on you to answer the call.  We need you to help us build an even more formidable corps of grassroots activists to ensure the momentum we've gained in the past five years continues in 2006 and beyond.  So, please, while you are enjoying the company of family and friends during this holiday season, please continue to reach out to your pro-gun family, friends, and fellow firearm owners to ensure that they know what's at stake in the new year and that they are an active part of our team of volunteers who will once again work tirelessly to protect the Second Amendment.

All of us at NRA-ILA thank you for your commitment to stand with us to protect our rights, and we wish you all a safe and Happy Thanksgiving holiday.
