Please help me with 2nd Amendment Preservation LegislationSubmitted by No.7 on Sat, 01/12/2013 - 21:49
I am currently trying to gather support for some sort of 2nd Amendment Preservation Ordinance to be brought to my County Commission two weeks form today on the 28th. I admit that I am young and honestly don't know what I'm doing or what the best way to go about this is. Any suggestions and advice on how to accomplish this is greatly appreciated.
