This man knows what he's talking about. Now apply this to gun rights and self-defense/2A.

It needs to get worse before it gets better.

We need a really ****ty piece of legislation like SOPA in this country to be the spark that ignites the lazy, idle tinders of protest. It's not uncommon or even controversial to say that Washington is corrupt. It doesn't cause anyone to bat an eye when you say it in public, with Republicans, Democrats or "other." That's a problem. We need SOPA to wake the sleeping giant in this country. It could have been our generation's Rodney King verdict. Instead of blacking out our websites, what we need to do is dismantle the system that created this bull****. Enough is enough.

Instead of changing your Facebook icon to an anti-SOPA image for a day or two, here's something you can do that might make a real difference: boycott the companies that supported this legislation. There are too many to boycott all of them effectively, so I propose we pick two or three, hit them, and hit them hard. Punish them for putting their interests above ours. Hitting them in the wallet should send a message.
The more we inconvenience ourselves, the more impact the boycott will have.

If we all come together and target sponsors/supporters of bad legislative/political candidates with boycotts, then a difference is possible.

NRA boycott list (couldn't find it on their site)

As for outright stopping POS legislative which threatens our freedoms, the only ultimate answer is to get the politicians pushing them out of office. Otherwise they just keep trying the Same Ol' S**t under a different bill.
