CT Gun Appreciation Day: January 19th, 12 Noon, Hartford Capitol
CCDL: Connecticut Citizens Defense League ^ | January 15th, 2013 | CCDL

Posted on 01/17/2013 7:24:40 AM PST by DTogo

...This is not a CCDL sponsored event, but we encourage as many people as possible to take part in one or the other. We would like to thank those CCDL members who stepped up and on their own got the permits and permissions needed for this.

Remember, follow all state and local laws. Firearms are allowed on the Capitol grounds, but are not allowed inside the building. Firearms are not permitted in Bushnell Park, which runs right up to the Capitol. Guns should remain holstered at all times. Capitol police will be on scene. Remember you are representing all gun owners, please be respectful of the police, the Capitol grounds, and each other. There will most likely be counter-protesters there, do not allow them to goad you.

This event has been posted within various threads and on the CT FReeper board, but in case anyone in CT or Southwest MA missed it, hope to see you there!

Let's not let the gun-grabbing Leftists exploit the tragedy of Newtown to trample the Constitutional Rights of law-abiding citizens and parents!

I posted this on the CT board, but I’ll post it here as well in case someone doesn’t see it there.

“Hello all,

It’s been a while since I’ve been on here on a regular basis (a couple years, actually). I’ve gotten more involved with gun rights, as a whole, because it’s been easier for me to focus on a single issue due to life getting in the way. Anyway, I’ll be at the capitol on Saturday with at least a few guys from ARFCOM and CCDL. We’re actively encouraging any and all CT gun owners to come out and show your support for gun rights and to tell the state to back off of gun owners.

A friend and I are working on a, for lack of a better term, “manifesto” to bring ALL gun owners together, regardless of their chosen shooting discipline(s). We will be posting this document to various social media outlets (facebook, twitter, etc). When I have the link up, I’ll post it here.

Ladies and gents, we ALL have to stand together or we all will fall, CCW’ers, black rifle guys, skeet shooters, hunters. Even if you don’t particularly care for guns (which I don’t think is the case, judging from the few of you I’ve met in the past), come out. Support this cause. Remember that the 2nd Amendment protects all the others.

Thank you.

Andy”

What a delightful turn-out!. The news media is citing the police, who are saying there were 1,000 people in Hartford. There were WAAAAAAAAAAAAAY more than than that!

Wish Race was around with his uncanny skill at estimating real crowd size!

Link to AP photos of gun rallies across the fruited plain.

Super turn-out! Great folks. Shooters are the *BEST.*

I’m not a professional head-counter, but I would say there were about 2500 present. It was a HUGE turn out!!

Wasn't it wonderful! I am so proud of the people who turned out, especially the Oath Keepers, Vets and parents with kids and their dogs!

Having spent 33 years working in Hartford, it was the *first* time in my life, that I ever felt safe in that city.

Next time there is an *event* and I'm sure there will be more...we FReepers have to get a bit more organized...and meet in a central place, to meet and greet.

Found my picture holding my sign at the Hartford Rally here in this Al-Reuters article, photo #24 of 31.

Would like to have met a couple FReepers there.

Found the picture of you holding the sign, picture number 24. Looks like that it was over 2,000 who showed up.

2000 would be a good objective estimate, largest crowd of “bitter clingers” I’ve ever seen there. The Obama Media will probably report 200.

Would have gone, but if it was not for my knee issues. By the looks of things, this fight is not over and has just begun, so I may end up meeting you and other FRpers one way or another and in a special way, in the springtime.

My dad went to the hospital on Thursday in NJ so I never made it. Good to see so many there. Unless there’s an absolute emergency, I plan to be at the statehouse for the public hearings.
