    Happened upon this add on Craigslist.

    "Looking for Gun Control Campaigners"

    "A major cable network is searching for outspoken individuals willing to put their views to the test on a documentary-style television show. We are most interested in people who want to speak up on how guns affect our society today."

    I'm not feeling particularly outspoken but I figure someone here might have at it.

    Well, at least they're upfront when they ask if you're for "sensible gun controls"! Does't sound like they want much to do with those that believe there are already too many laws.

    8 US Presidents have been NRA members
    80 MILLION gun owners didn't shoot anyone today, a few criminals did!!

    Seems disingenuous. "Looking for Gun Control Campaigners" ??! Huh? None of their options involve the belief that weapon access to common citizens will give the rest of the amendments teeth. Someone with some brains should touch base with them. They seem to be approaching it from the position of "whats your take about" controlling guns, but they asked "Explain who you are and what your personal standpoint is on gun control." Hmmm.

    Full ad as these expire soon:

    "Do you believe that guns should be banned altogether?

    OR do you fight to enforce sensible gun laws, regulations and public policies?

    What do you feel about guns used for personal protection?
    How about:
    Firearms used to hunt? Or just for fun on the shooting range?

    A major cable network is searching for outspoken individuals willing to put their views to the test on a documentary-style television show. We are most interested in people who want to speak up on how guns affect our society today. If this sounds like you and you’re up for an exciting challenge, please contact us ASAP.
    In the email, please include your contact details and a photo. Explain who you are and what your personal standpoint is on gun control. "

    Why not infiltrate it? The 2nd amendment cause is a fight, would we not be wise to infiltrate the opposition?

    I have a hard time accepting 'A major cable network' using CL as an avenue for recruitment.

    +1. Seems like a very easy way to get people to willingly send personal info including how they feel about guns to who knows where/who. Then based on the info provided could be used for tons of stuff.............

    That is where I was going with my original post. If the 'major cable network' had identified themselves it would have given some credence to their ad but that would have no doubt caused them major problems.

    Nah, I'd rather come at them honestly. I have confidence in my pro-2A views as persuasive ideas, and I don't feel the need to get dishonest to achieve our goals. However, I respect the fact that you don't feel confident or secure.

    I believe that "sensible gun control" includes mandating that every adult have a pistol and a battle rifle in their home and qualify on it every other year. Can I represent, now?

    This could work, we can post our own ads around the country, get these anti-gunners all together at one time & fix the whole problem in one swoop!
