The foundational philosophy of Team SASS has always been structured as a decentralized organization of active state clubs led by an active State Director. Why did we establish it this way? Nobody knows the local area and your state as well as those who live and interact there with the political hierarchy. Just as our Federal government can't govern each state successfully, although they continue to try, those in Washington have no idea what the real needs and challenges are of those in Florida, Montana, Wyoming and so on. Only those faced with the issues in their local area are familiar enough with those issues and the people around them to affect the necessary actions required to deal with and hopefully solve them.
Team SASS, unlike our federal government, recognized this from the very beginning and never assumed to try and direct state and local actions from the national level. Team SASS HQs would provide the overarching structure, guidance and coordination for the states as well as cooperate with other organizations such as the NRA, GOA, SAF etc.at the national level to face down those whose intent has always been to infringe upon our right to keep and bear arms. We must actively attack this as a combined force or we will be eaten alive piecemeal.
Where the front line battle is waged has always been at the local and state levels. To successfully engage in this on-going fight, we all must be active participants led by active and dedicated leaders at all levels. State Directors with the "right stuff" are essential to our success. As in any organization with which I've ever been associated, the organization takes its lead and develops its personality from the leader. If that leader is active, enthusiastic, dedicated and leads by example, those he leads will do likewise. If he is lazy, unconcerned and hopeful that others will carry the load, those he leads will do likewise. Ergo, Team SASS needs the former and must avoid the latter.
If you feel you have the right stuff, we need you to step into those leadership positions and put fire in the belly of those you will lead. We can only win this struggle with such as these. If protecting the divine right to keep and bear arms is important to you and you're willing to dedicate part of your life and time to that effort, let Charlie know and come join the fight.
