Brantley Gilbert Shows Off Second Amendment Tattoos and the anti-gun nuts lampoon him on Twitter and Facebook. The Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, formerly known as The National Coalition To Ban Handguns, took to Facebook with a revision of Brantley’s tattoo.

Of course they didn’t stop there, taking the cause to Twitter as well. They “fixed” it for him by changing it to the 3rd Amendment, since he isn’t a part of a “well-regulated militia” as far as they know.

Cold Dead Hands, an up and coming 2nd Amendment Advocacy group, took CSGV to task on their “understanding” of what a “well-regulated militia” is, with a graphic illustration of the 2nd Amendment explained and a link to an article explaining what well-regulated militia means in the context of the 2nd Amendment.

Here is the article on what “well-regulated militia” means according to the Cold Dead Hands Group. Of course the exchange also included some passive aggressive comments from CDH and some outright name calling from CSGV.

As of the writing of this article, Brantley Gilbert has not yet weighed in on the Twitter exchange. It seems to have calmed for the moment with this final exchange;

CSGV invokes ISIS and CDH invokes Sal Alinsky via Twitter.

  1. To all you anti gun people out there, you don’t like his tattoo? Tough sh!t, then don’t look at it.
    Guns are NOT the problem. The person HOLDING the gun is. It’s the PERSON who decides to pull the trigger, not the gun.

  2. To the anti-gun bipeds: Have you ever had the feeling of fighting a losing battle? if yes then give up and go home and us pro-gun humans will not use our guns for you. If no, then come on down to the nearest gun range and see how much business they have. When you are out numbered anywhere between 2 to 1000 to 1 or more then you are losing. I will never give up my guns without giving up my life first. Pry them from my cold dead fingers! MOLON LABE!

  3. Guns are also to protect us from the government….we need to wake up. Guns are not the problem people who misuse the gun are. Drinking and driving are a huge problem but yet I don’t see anyone trying to ban alcohol

      They tried to ban alcohol, let’s see if history repeats itself. Nobody teaches history in schools anymore.

  4. Please don’t use Saul Alinsky as a pejorative. Though (in my opinion) he fought for the wrong side, he understood that sometimes he made mistakes (i.e. public housing developments). Further, he provided an excellent framework for the less powerful (you and I) to confront and influence the more powerful (politicians). His strategy in Rules for Radicals was even embraced by Andrew Breitbart.

    Please, buy the book. Read it. Learn how to f* with the anti-gun folks. Learn to expose their hypocrisy by making them live up to their own rules. Learn how ridicule is a great attack strategy. Learn how to make protest fun. We’ve been doing this in California for some time and have been driving the antis crazy.

    Best regards. Keep up the fight.

      jdberger, Sal Alinsky IS a pejorative. Do his tactics work? Of course they do. Have they been employed by all sides? Of course they have. That being said, the ends DO NOT justify the means. Disparaging and marginalizing your opponent because you cannot win an own and honest debate is antithetical to what America stands for and what it was founded upon. Taking advantage of the ill-informed rather than legitimately educating them is not an admirable trait regardless of who does it. Sal Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals is a propaganda driven misinformation and misdirection manual, no different than Mein Kampf or any other manifesto of the past used to enslave the people. The Constitution gives We The People all the power we need to fight corrupt government, but Alinsky’s tactics have resulted in so many misinformed and emotionally reactive Americans that few have the knowledge or the motivation to use the tools we were given.

  5. Just remind these gun control people how racist they are. Remind them how southern white leaders established the first laws to prevent black men from defending their families against threats to their lives.
    It also appears to me that the person writing the Tweets for @CSGV is 14 years old? Resorting to insults when faced with someone that counters their claims.
