Special "incentive" for contributors.

Bills Gun Shop and Range in Robbinsdale and in Circle Pines, Minnesota has a special "incentive" for Minnesota (and Western Wisconsin) residents who contribute to A2A's fund drive. Here's the deal.

Bill's Gun Shop & Range will donate:

(1) a $20 range token for every contribution of $50 or greater towards this project.

(2) 2 gold memberships (each a $1,000 value) to the first two $5,000 donors.

(3) a corporate membership (a $3000 value) to the first corporate donator that contributes $10,000.

If you qualify, send A2A an e-mail at to claim your incentive. We need your e-mail address (to verify contribution) and your mailing address (to send out the incentive). Remember A2A has a volunteer staff and may respond slowly during the Holiday Season. Mailings will go out in early February after the work on the brief is completed. This offer may be modified or revoked at any time without notice.

Taking On Gun Control

"I have sworn upon the altar of God, eternal hostility against every
form of tyranny over the mind of man." --Thomas Jefferson


A Well-Organized and Armed Militia
"For a people who are free and who mean to remain so, a well-organized and armed militia is their best security. It is, therefore, incumbent on us at every meeting [of Congress] to revise the condition of the militia and to ask ourselves if it is prepared to repel a powerful enemy at every point of our territories exposed to invasion... Congress alone have power to produce a uniform state of preparation in this great organ of defense. The interests which they so deeply feel in their own and their country's security will present this as among the most important objects of their deliberation."
--Thomas Jefferson: 8th Annual Message, 1808. ME 3:482

"None but an armed nation can dispense with a standing army. To keep ours armed and disciplined is therefore at all times important." --Thomas Jefferson, 1803.

"It is more a subject of joy [than of regret] that we have so few of the desperate characters which compose modern regular armies. But it proves more forcibly the necessity of obliging every citizen to be a soldier; this was the case with the Greeks and Romans and must be that of every free State. Where there is no oppression there can be no pauper hirelings." --Thomas Jefferson to James Monroe, 1813.

"A well-disciplined militia, our best reliance in peace and for the first moments of war till regulars may relieve them, I deem [one of] the essential principles of our Government, and consequently [one of] those which ought to shape its administration."
--Thomas Jefferson: 1st Inaugural, 1801.

"[The] governor [is] constitutionally the commander of the militia of the State, that is to say, of every man in it able to bear arms." --Thomas Jefferson to A. L. C. Destutt de Tracy, 1811.

"Uncertain as we must ever be of the particular point in our circumference where an enemy may choose to invade us, the only force which can be ready at every point and competent to oppose them, is the body of neighboring citizens as formed into a militia. On these, collected from the parts most convenient, in numbers proportioned to the invading foe, it is best to rely, not only to meet the first attack, but if it threatens to be permanent, to maintain the defence until regulars may be engaged to relieve them."
--Thomas Jefferson: 1st Annual Message, 1801. ME 3:334
