Change is more of the same, old tripe.

From the White House two and one-half hours after the new president swore a oath to preserve, protect and defend:

"Address Gun Violence in Cities: Obama and Biden would repeal the Tiahrt Amendment, which restricts the ability of local law enforcement to access important gun trace information, and give police officers across the nation the tools they need to solve gun crimes and fight the illegal arms trade. Obama and Biden also favor commonsense measures that respect the Second Amendment rights of gun owners, while keeping guns away from children and from criminals. They support closing the gun show loophole and making guns in this country childproof. They also support making the expired federal Assault Weapons Ban permanent."

President Obama has issued a call for service, which is a grand idea. Join or upgrade your membership to National Rifle Association and any other pro-Second Amendment group. Encourage others to join. Look into the multitude of ways one can serve country and community such as teaching new shooters, appealing to members of Congress and local and state polititicans to support the right to keep and bear arms, building and maintaining places to shoot, sponsoring a Friends of the NRA event, or aiding a youth shooting-sports program.

Let's do more than stock up non-microstamped ammunition, obtaining firearms we think will be banned, waiting for more incremental restrictions on firearms use and ownership, and being silent in the face of what seems to be an overpowering political force.

"We can form a single united body, while the enemy must split up into fractions. Hence there will be a whole pitted against separate parts of a whole, which means that we shall be many to the enemy's few."--Sun Tzu, The Art of War
