Memorial Day: Reflection Of Freedom's Past And Future

Friday, May 25, 2007

While many Americans welcome this weekend as a chance to gather with family and friends, to barbeque in the great outdoors, and to miss a day of work on Monday, we must always remember exactly what we commemorate this weekend—our fallen brothers and sisters who paid the ultimate sacrifice to preserve our freedom and the freedom of millions of others whose names they didn’t even know.

Thankful as we should be that we didn’t have to pay such a high toll, we have an obligation to honor our fallen heroes by working to ensure the survival of the freedom they died to protect.

One of the best¾and easiest¾ways to accomplish this is to exercise our right to vote.  But, in order to do so, we must first ensure we are registered to vote.

With 2007 being an “off” election year, only five states have elections this year (Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, New Jersey, and Virginia).  With the all-important 2008 campaign already well underway, you can bet the opponents of our freedom will be working this year to gain momentum.

For this reason it is critical that we as gun owners ensure we are registered to vote and that we vote on Election Day.

To assist you in registering to vote this year, NRA-ILA has a number of tools available.  Click here and choose your state to find out all the voter registration dates, deadlines, and requirements for this year’s elections.  To print a voter registration application that you can complete and return by mail, click here.

Let’s pay tribute to those who gave their lives in defense of freedom by ensuring we in the pro-Second Amendment community give our time and effort in registering and voting this year.
