PITTSBURGH (Reuters) - The National Rifle Association wrapped up its annual meeting on Sunday with an appearance by rocker Ted Nugent, who urged the pro-gun rights crowd to "talk about guns all the time."
"You need to fix everybody in your lives to be absolutely pro-gun," Nugent said. "You need to talk guns all the time. You need to talk hunting all the time.
"The gun community should be all about public relations," he said. "We haven't turned up the heat enough yet."
Some 70,000 people -- men, women, families with children -- attended the powerful gun lobby's three-day event in Pittsburgh, said NRA spokeswoman Rachel Parsons.
The group claims roughly 4 million members.

Gun rights groups everywhere are talking about seriously repealing gun control laws.
Now is the time. The tide is rising. A good place to start would be some SERIOUS de-funding of the hated BATF. Time to contact your Reps in Washington.

Gun control is like trying to solve drunk driving by making it harder for sober people to own cars.
This is hyperbole, I hope. Nobody likes a person with only one topic of conversation.
Here's my proposal for a repeal of all federal gun control:
Federal Firearms Freedom Act1) United States Code Title 18, Part I, Chapter 44 is hereby repealed in its entirety. 2) United States Code Title 26, Subtitle E, Chapter 53 is hereby repealed in its entirety.
This restores the RKBA. It eliminates all federal gun control and firearms taxes. It leaves only the Second Amendment as the sole federal law relating to firearms.
Works for me...
Be Ever Vigilant!!
Concur 100%. A phrase that sums it up nicely is "Self defense is the first law of nature.".
This is how I like to rock the RKBA...no video, but there are lyrics posted to read (or sing/scream at the top of your lungs) along with the music. Crank it up...way up, especially if you have Leftist neighbors!
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
I had discussions, back when we were pushing for a shall-issue law in my state, with gun owners who were more concerned with range protection, et al. I told them that they had valid concerns, but that IMO, passing shall-issue was, if not most important, clearly the most immediate.
The greatest weapon the antis have had has been their ability to portray gun ownership as something rare and perverse. Even in the most anti-gun states, more than 1/4 of households own guns - but almost everybody thinks that gun ownership is unusual.
What shall-issue has done has been to make it clear that gun ownership is common. Every one of those “no guns” signs is an advertisement that there are millions of law-abiding citizens in the community for whom owning and using guns is a perfectly ordinary thing.
About eight years back I was working a gun-rights booth at a gun show at the state fair grounds. I remember seeing people in the parking lot, pulling cased shotguns from their cars, and looking around in an uneasy manner, to make sure they weren’t being seen. 40-year-old adults acting like twelve-year-olds afraid of being caught with their fathers’ Playboys, for the simple act of carrying a cased long gun into a gun show.
It pissed me off - that the anti-gunners had so imposed their mindset that even at gun shows, you could see law-aiding gun owners afraid of being seen doing something innocent, legal, and perfectly ordinary.
The shall-issue movement, and building on it the open carry movement, is disarming the gun control crowd, with respect to their “rare and unusual” weapon. We still have farther to go.
Nugent is right, that we need to be more public. It’s the most important thing we need to do.
