1. Take out a full sheet of paper, and at the top, write the name and
number of one of your best gun buddies.
2. Make the phone call and say, "What do you say we go to dinner
one night, and talk about gun stuff and 'issues that concern us as free
people.'" You can even say it's your own idea if you like, I don't
care. Just arrange to get your butt out to dinner to talk. Note: This
is the second hardest part of this plan.
3. Then ask who else the two of you might invite to this little dinner
and discussion. Important: agree up front on separate checks. Write all
the names on your sheet of paper. That's what it's for.
4. Pick a restaurant that can seat the bunch of you. One big table is
the key, so you can all hear each other. A side room with privacy is even
better. Pick a date about four weeks away, and call your friends. Warning:
Finding a good spot is the hardest part of this plan.
Are you with me so far?
Are you willing to do "all this work" to have a real positive
Or doesn't your mama let you out at night?
5. Go out to dinner and have a good time. Because of the common ground
built into your invite list, things will pretty much happen automatically.
Between the bunch of you, all sorts of good things will start coming up
just by themselves.What's really happening --
You're using the power of the
First Amendment Right to Assemble
to help guard your freedom.
AN EASY PLAN
TO MAKE THE DINNER EXCEPTIONAL
If you have the guts, try this:
Fifteen minutes after the scheduled meeting time, ding the side of a glass
with a spoon, to make the universally recognized "call to order"
Say hello, and you and your buddy introduce yourselves, and describe who
you are and what you do. Then have everyone else do the same.
When the last person finishes, speaking as the host of the dinner, say
you invited everyone to discuss "issues that concern us as free people"
and ask for two ground rules --
a. only one person speaks at a time, so everyone can hear
b. stay on the subject
Take out a pad. Ask your friends to start on the following question:
"What's the problem we face?"
Write down the flood of answers.
Stay with it until it's a long list.
When the time seems right, ask another group question: "So what are
the solutions?" Write down the flood of answers. Then just roll with
You will be amazed how much good stuff comes up, how many people get energized
to take action and do stuff, and how quickly the evening goes. Before
the first person leaves, ask everyone if they'd like to come back
next month, same time and place. Book the restaurant again while you're
there. Before you leave, hand the waitress (OK, the waiter) five new Sakagawea
"golden" U.S. dollars (in addition to a decent tip from everyone).
You'll get AMAZING service next time. Total cost for this totally cool
tactic, five bucks.
OTHER THINGS THAT ARE GOOD TO DO
1. Get some of those stick-on name badges at an office supply store.
2. Agree to swap email addresses so you can all reach each other.
3. Write up the lists from your pad and give everyone copies.
4. Find some worthwhile literature and pass out copies.
5. Think about more people you could invite next month.
6. Ask everyone if they think they could assemble their own friends for
a dinner, and help spread this program.
7. Be a big shot -- start out by buying everyone a round of drinks. It
feels good, sets a nice tone, and in the end doesn't burn too big a hole
in your wallet.
8. Instead of using a pad to make a list of ideas, put a big sheet of
paper on the wall and use that with a marker. When everyone can see the
list as it grows, it spurs more ideas. Don't use a permanent marker and
get ink through the paper and onto the wall like an idiot.
