Mark Lim - Austin made a shirt design for the 3 Percenters:
For those of you who don't know what being a 3 Percenter means here's a quick explaination:

The Three Percent in 1775: by Sipsey Street Irregulars
During the American Revolution, the active forces in the field
against the King’s tyranny never amounted to more than 3% of the
colonists. They were in turn actively supported by perhaps 10% of the
population. In addition to these revolutionaries were perhaps another
20% who favored their cause but did little or nothing to support it.
Another one-third of the population sided with the King (by the end of
the war there were actually more Americans fighting FOR the King than
there were in the field against him) and the final third took no side,
blew with the wind and took what came.
Three Percenters today do not claim that we represent 3% of the
American people, although we might. That theory has not yet been tested.
We DO claim that we represent at least 3% of American gun owners, which
is still a healthy number somewhere in the neighborhood of 3 million
people. History, for good or ill, is made by determined minorities. We
are one such minority. So too are the current enemies of the Founders’
Republic. What remains, then, is the test of will and skill to determine
who shall shape the future of our nation.
The Three Percent today are gun owners who will not disarm, will not
compromise and will no longer back up at the passage of the next gun
control act. Three Percenters say quite explicitly that we will not obey
any further circumscription of our traditional liberties and will
defend ourselves if attacked. We intend to maintain our God-given
natural rights to liberty and property, and that means most especially
the right to keep and bear arms. Thus, we are committed to the
restoration of the Founders’ Republic, and are willing to fight, die
and, if forced by any would-be oppressor, to kill in the defense of
ourselves and the Constitution that we all took an oath to uphold
against enemies foreign and domestic.
I thought they were a cult at first but after reading about the group and what they stand for I do agree with what they have to say. I never really had a stance on guns.
Do we really need assault rifles as "hunting" weapons? Probably not. But it's pretty fun to blow up a watermelon with one.
