Skip to comments.Arizona: Over 1,000 Support Second Amendment at Capitol
Posted on 01/19/2013 8:39:12 PM PST by marktwain
Just a quick note. I am tired from driving to Phoenix to the protest against more gun laws at the capitol, then a quick look at the fairgrounds for the gun show, and then found my place in the desert broke into on the way back. I have some pictures of the rally at the capitol that I hope to post later.
We arrived at the show about 11:45, and had a hard time finding parking. Finally found a spot and moved to the capitol. I counted out a hundred people, cut the crowd into roughly equivalent slices, and figured there were about 600. By the time I left at 1300, there were over 1,000.
Wonderful placards and signs. About a third of the crowd was armed. Quite a few AR15 types, lots of Glock and revolvers, a few muskets for spice.
I saw Alan Korwin. I was not sure he would make it.
More tomorrow, pictures if I can make them work.
I’ll be looking forward to the photos.
All in all, I think this was a successful day.
Here is the link to the bill you referred to in your post on the Arizona message board. We’ll see how much traction we can get. http://www.azleg.state.az.us//formatDocument.asp?indoc=/legtext/51leg/1r/bills/hb2291p.htm&Session_ID=110
Estimated 400 to 500 in Carson City NV. Lots of honking and thumbs up from passing cars. Good time was had.
It was indeed a great rally - and amazing that we had 1,000 folks there with a huge gunshow down the road at the same time.
At what state capital were you?
