    We are scared to outwardly support gun control laws, because the RKBAers and the NRA Have guns and too many kooks who will use them.  

    Almost every road here in rural upstate NY has a printed sign supporting the repeal of the NY SAFE Act.  The local county sheriff has publicly declared he will virtually not support enforcing it's provisions.

    If we want to put up a sign saying "Why repeal a law which makes us all safer?"  Do you know what would happen?

    It would be riddled with bullet holes by the next AM. (As our No Trespassing & Hunting signs are)  Our dog would be found dead.  Trees would be cut down and probably eventually damage to our house or a fire started in our woods or fields.  

    Local papers would not print a letter to the editor without a signature.  If we went to a gathering of those wanting stricter gun laws, I'm sure we would be photographed, monitored, spied on, IF we could find a room, building to hold such a meeting in.  The guy who plows our driveway, may refuse to do so.  The highway dept guys would make hitting our mailbox in January with a town plow, a priority.

      At least, I guarantee that if gun law reform proponents had a significant rally for reform, the kooks with their Glocks and ARs would show up to intimidate everyone away.  GUARANTEED.  Fuck...they did it to try and prevent people from getting healthcare, so they would definitely do it to keep reasonable gun reform from getting a hearing.  

      People on the right side of this issue can't stick their necks out too far as you are absolutely right--they risk becoming the target of violence at the hands of the fetishists.
