I noticed this NRA press release that was put out Friday:
So, what can you do to counter this PR stunt? Of course, any type of pro-gun counter protest would be covered with the mediaâ€™s typical anti-gun bias, if it was covered at all. But there is a way we can speak directly to the American people to set the record straight on gun bans, gun rationing, and other anti-gun proposals.
Through a massive and coordinated blitz of letters to the editor of our local newspapers in the days and weeks leading up to the August 28 demonstrations, we can speak directly to American citizens and our elected officials with the facts straight from the mouths of voting constituents.
This isn’t a bad idea, really, in the days and weeks leading up to the protests on August 24th, except for one thing. The date on the release says:
Friday, August 24, 2007
It’s a little late to get letters into the editor out for inclusion by next Tuesday. This release should have gone out weeks ago. Then there would have been time.
