New York Firearms owners, The Dysfunctional Children Let Out to Play. by bpb

It's summer time in New York & the legislature is on vacation it’s also an election year.
  Here firearms owners sit and wait on a big event the "repeal of the safe act" or as I call it the "Firearms Ban". SCOPE or NYSRPA will probably get a report out in September. If something fast breaks you'll get an email alert. 

For me after 31 years of living, hunting & working here I'm done with NY..Movers were at the house Saturday. Unfortunately I have to return & work for 2 months to collect my severance pay. Yea I've been outsourced to one of potus cronies corporations.
 Getting it done:
 I've found that unless you chase every asshole down no one will do anything but dance the dance of "it's not my yob", SORRY.   One big HUGE problem is NY Firearms owners now have a dozen new Groups against the FIREARMS BAN.{{IT'S NOT A SAFE ACT}}.

 These groups are sending out to many emails about everything from everywhere. I have placed every one of them on my spam list!!   Then the out of state political propaganda email starts rolling in because those groups are gleaning emails that the well intentioned New Yorkisstan'ers have sent out.

NOW firearms owners are being overwhelmed with dozens of emails a week asking for votes and money. You lost your audience by thinking they wanted to see everything "you" thought was important.  These NY fence post sitter firearms owners were never involved so they had no clue as to what to do.

A few jumped up with visions of a fast kill and a great boost to their personal egos.

Ahh to  find out that it ain’t that easy getting people to follow you without a real plan, on a wing and a prayer. Waving you carbine and quoting from Last Testament.  You were warned, ya didn't listen to some of us. Many of the new and the old Firearm’s groups still use  the antis lingo.  Then to make matters worse they passed on the media distractions to the largest group of oppositional defiant ADD group in America...the "FIREARMS OWNERS"!

Yea its a sad state of affairs which will be repeated in November.

BlackPowderBill ~ Tell Me Again Who Was First?

When Thompson Center first came out with the Encore Muzzle Loader. BlackPowderBill's Reloading Supplies had the first sale in Rochester ,NY. Months before the other Firearms dealers did. I sold two rifles , they were special order , I had my name on T/C's dealer list to receive the first batch out the door.

Back in the early or mid 1980's when I joined the Shooters Committee on Political Education I'd pick up propaganda from SCOPE Monroe county chairman Steve DeMallie. I'd take this material to every gun club and gun shop in Wayne County.
  I witnessed another individual receive an award for being the first to do this in Wayne County???

 So many people have done so much, yet others forget to mention who it was that first approached them on the subject.  I'm not saying they haven't promoted the cause ...I'm stating the facts.

I once took anti George Pataki SCOPEny.org signs to the gun clubs in Wayne county in protest of his 5-points firearms ban. A few clubs refused to post them in public ...They were afraid it would offend some of the members and local politicians.  So please tell me again who's on our side.

Business cards for the gun club.
Printing events on the back of pizza shop flyer's, they were always blank.

I'll add to this thread as time permits. 

Remember BlackPowderBill is relocating to Madison County Georgia in September.
Same email
Same phone number
