I've read a buttload of posts all over the net regarding the letter, and nearly all of the statements other than those of the obviously lib sites refer to pride and honor.

The responses come across as being from those who have been reassured in some way.

Roger, Bro-I gotcha. I meant to differentiate between the lib posts and those of normal people.

Because of the provenance and authorship I think you are in the X-ring as to many areas of the country. More so than some other manifestos, those who only know what they've seen on TV and the silver screen are likely, whether they admit it or not, to view this as a light in the darkness, particularly those in states in the firm clutches of 'Empire'.

They still see MSG Muldoon & Doc & Peter-san, they're still wishing for the Wolverines to get some help, and they still believe "men who mean just what they say."

The notion of still standing with and for something bigger than oneself is not dead. You're seeing that now.

I believe you're 100% right.

Outstanding work, SF.

This letter is precisely why this website (and you Quiet Professionals individually) is so important. To the author(s) of this letter a note of personal thanks. Forwarding to commence immediately.

Remaining Steadfast!

I've been monitoring the 2nd Amendment issue since Sandy Hook, but never really taken to heart what it meant for Americans. Better late than never I guess. In any case I'm learning very quickly all that is at stake and how these very same events have taken place throughout history. I did learn early on in my enlistment, "the one thing that we learn from history is that we never learn from history!" I'm very encouraged to see that many of my brothers in arms are taking this quite seriously and are ever vigilant! I gladly and proudly stand with you!

If we thought it was impossible to fail, what would we attempt to achieve??

That's what I've seen as well, a general sense of excitement and gratitude that some of America's finest warriors have spoken up.

I don't want to focus on the negative comments I've seen, as many of those are to be expected. Instead, I'm hoping many of those Americans quietly watching in the background...many like me, tired, over-stretched in our lives, with no time for political BS...I'm hoping those people are now waking up and paying attention to the larger issues at hand. Anyone in a "neutral" wait-and-see position right now is not neutral at all. They're being dragged backwards in a mis-directed wave of hysteria. This is the time to do something, not wait.

It's too bad more Americans can't know you QPs, individually, to understand the weight of your words. The QPs I have the privilege of calling Friends are not about fear, loathing and love of violence. The exact opposite: they love and value their country, are positive and full of laughter. And when they speak, I listen.

Well done, gentlemen.
