OAUSA Net - May 18, 2017 - The NRA: Inform, Educate and Motivate

#1

Post by DaveK » Mon May 15, 2017 10:22 pm

Our net this week will be led by our very good friend, Rick Schirmer KK6CTT. Rick has invited special guest, Paul Payne, the NRA Members' Council Administrator, and "Liaison to the Executive Vice President" (Wayne LaPierre), to join us. Paul, A long time proponent of the grassroots movement to keep our Second Amendment rights whole has always prevailed to "inform, educate and motivate."

This is not merely a West Coast issue and we invite the group to an informative discussion that has become, for many of us, a large part of our Outdoor Adventure theme.

Introduction:

There was a time when Paul and others, like myself, worked on local issues and strived to recall a representative that signed up for the late 80's era "assault weapons ban." I fell by the way, returning to Active Duty with the Army while Paul continued to carry the torch with the Citizens Against Crime. It is good to have him here this evening and I want to welcome him to the discussion concerning some of the issues we face as outdoor enthusiasts and adventurers.

Ground rules:
o Discuss and work through issues.
o Addressing the elephant in the room is fine but in this forum we have FCC rules, repeater rules and we have operator agreements that should be placed first and foremost.
o This is NOT a membership drive and I have heard Paul say this on numerous occasions, "It is about getting you to commit your time and effort..." This is how we make a difference.
o This is a presentation of information from someone who has been around this cat and mouse game for a long time. Pick his brains. Share your personal experiences as well; what works, what did not.
o Looking forward to a hearty discussion served up Patriot style.

This is the age of information...get it...it is there for the taking. You do not have to rely on what is force fed, work on learning through the different shades of information available. Surround yourself with people who share common interests. There is nothing worse than having to hold you tongue because your views are frowned upon... Have fun with the people who enjoy the activities you hold near and dear.

Educate

Bring the information to those who could use a little help. Continue to spend the time necessary to talk sensibly about the topics we hold dear. Pass on your passion to others as only you can; each with our own unique way of getting the word out.

Motivate

Pick a spot where you feel compelled to be part of the solution. I found that I have a passion in Amateur Radio that finds me using skill sets I have honed over years of military and now volunteer service and enjoy the interaction with fellow Hams that choose to help others when the going gets tough. With that, I found many are interested in staying informed during a potential disaster by preparing now rather than waiting. These are the people that I have doubled down with adding personal protection and the reality that we are one down turn away from anarchy, one wide spread disaster from the chaotic attempts of the ill prepared to attain the items they took for granted on a daily basis. My passions are not the next guy's passions but the way we deliver our information is heartfelt and honest. If other like-minded individuals compliment one another, there is hope and that is where true motivation comes from, you can't help but feel part of something bigger than yourself with people who are just as passionate...providing for the greater good.

Conclusion

No matter who you chose to align yourself with...the California Rifle and Pistol Association, Gun Owners of California, the NRA...get out there and share your passion with someone worthy of your time. Take the high road and participate in the voting and legal process. Let your passion be the bright light in bleak times that motivates others to carry the torch forward. We hope that this discussion helped to provide a new and brighter outlook for the future of our Nation's Second Amendment and all of our rights.
