"This you should comply with immediately..."

   I deem it important to direct your attention to Article II of the constitutional amendments of the United States, "The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed." This you should comply with immediately. Every union should have a rifle club. I strongly advise you to devise ways and means to provide every member with the latest improved rifle which can be obtained from the factory at a nominal price. I entreat you to take action on this important question so that in two years we may hear the inspiring music of the martial tread of 25,000 armed men in the ranks of labor.
