Every activist goes through ups and downs. As I noted on Twitter earlier today, simply the act of posting information relevant to sportsmen and hunters while encouraging people to meet with their lawmakers on Second Amendment issues got me called a Fudd. Because, you know, even mentioning the word hunting and guns apparently makes one a Fudd. Seriously, who needs enemies when we have our own people willing to scream traitor for even acknowledging the existence of other areas of interest in the shooting sports & gun movement?
But, then, things turned around. I started scoping out which MAIG mayors are up for election this year in our county. It turns out all of them are. Unfortunately, many haven’t been challenged in previous years, so that’s not great. But, when you find out one was not only challenged in his last election, but he also only won by 68 votes, that’s a pick-up opportunity! That’s like a happy dance because just a little bit of activism by a handful of gun owners could turn those numbers around if he has a good challenger again.
Anyone else have MAIG mayors who are on the ballot this year?
