URGENT ALERT - YOUR ACTION REQUIRED
DECORUM AT PUBLIC MEETINGS
In recent days, the ISRA has issued alerts regarding public meetings sponsored by gun control organizations. We urge maximum turnout of lawful gun owners at these meetings. However, please observe the following standards:
- Vigorously defend your rights and vigorously promote the constitutional premise that law abiding citizens have a right to own and use firearms of their choosing.
- Vigorously defend the right to self defense.
- Use good judgment when expressing yourself. Do not use profanity, racial or ethnic slurs, or utter threats.
- Offer officials the respect their offices deserve.
- Resist the temptation to follow the lead of folks in the crowd who are acting as "cheerleaders." Be mindful that not everyone who appears to be on our side, is on our side.
