We had 30 show up in Norristown, PA. I expect the numbers to grow with each passing week that the gun grabbers are out spreading their misinformation to achieve usurpation.

Texas had a huge rally.

Big turnout in Albany.

BTW, not all reporters are weasels. I talked to this guy, and his reporting was fair. He obviously doesn’t have a future beyond local community papers.

Denver Post reports 1000 people attended the Gun Appreciation Rally at the State Capitol today...But they didn’t call it by its real name...

My own estimate was in excess of 3000 people in attendance...Including one bald eagle circling very high above the crowd...Excellent speakers!

To view some photos of the Rally, check here...

The best thing about the Denver Post is it makes me miss the Rocky Mountain News...

Amen to that, I had a letter to the editor published in the last edition of the Rocky Mountain News.

Joint-operating agreements often end up being death to conservative papers. Just ask the Jones family who owned the Tulsa Tribune.

From Boston, Universal Hub:
>>Gun nuts rally at State House

Alex Jones photographed a guy with a flag daring people to try to take his AR-15 away.

Some of the comments:
--that's right, anyone who thinks gun control laws are ineffective at stopping school shootings is a gun nut. Way to elevate the discourse

--Indeed. After they come after the Second Amendment they'll go after the first. Hitler, Amin, Stalin, and Castro all agree: Gun control works. (that was by me)

--People exersizing their rights given by the constitution, and you call them nuts!!! Nice you are a true professional

“Had between 1200-1800 here in Minnesota.”

Nice job Guys - we had between 2 and 3 thousand in Hartford Konnecticut (maybe closer to 2K - but it was like 10 degrees with the wind-chill and snow covering).

Well done, Coloradans! Well done, Americans!

I'd like to see 2,000,000 of us march on Washington, D.C. this spring to let our wannabe lords and masters know:

• If our elected misrepresentatives don't start representing us, the people, we'll fire them!

• If the Supreme Court doesn't start ruling in accordance with the Constitution, we'll fire them!

• If the feral government bureaucracy doesn't back off and leave us alone, we'll fire the vermin!

Just finished watching a fine, fine film (Ride With the Devil) on Netflix and there was a patch of dialogue that hit the nail right on the head:

Mr. Evans: You ever been to Lawrence Kansas, young man?

Jack Bull Chiles: [scoffs] No, I reckon not Mr. Evans. I don’t believe I’d be too welcome in Lawrence.

Mr. Evans: I didn’t think so. Before this war began, my business took me there often. As I saw those northerners build that town, I witnessed the seeds of our destruction being sown.

Jack Bull Chiles: The foundin’ of that town was truly the beginnin’ of the Yankee invasion.

Mr. Evans: I’m not speakin’ of numbers, nor even abolitionist trouble makin’. It was the schoolhouse. Before they built their church, even, they built that schoolhouse. And they let in every tailor’s son... and every farmer’s daughter in that country.

Jack Bull Chiles: Spellin’ won’t help you hold a plow any firmer. Or a gun either.

Mr. Evans: No, it won’t Mr. Chiles. But my point is merely that they rounded every pup up into that schoolhouse because they fancied that everyone should think and talk the same free-thinkin’ way they do with no regard to station, custom, propriety. And that is why they will win. Because they believe everyone should live and think just like them. And we shall lose because we don’t care one way or another how they live. We just worry about ourselves.

Jack Bull Chiles: Are you sayin’, sir, that we fight for nothin’?

Mr. Evans: Far from it, Mr. Chiles. You fight for everything that we ever had, as did my son. It’s just that... we don’t have it anymore.

That is it, the liberal are using their control of the eduction system to make everyone think their way and no other. The have the media on the side, so I fear before long our fight will be as Mr. Evans says, “Far from it, Mr. Chiles. You fight for everything that we ever had, as did my son. It’s just that... we don’t have it anymore.”

Glad you like it!

It’s probably better that you always owe me that beer...I can’t stand the taste of it. My dad always said they needed to pour it back in the horse when he tried to drink one.-—LOL!

LOLOL .... poor, deprived man! Guess the only benefit is that you never had to see your dad drunk.

My great-grandfather stayed pretty much clear of adult potables (he had two Irish brothers who were roaring drunkards and layabouts, who frequently took the poet James Whitcomb Riley home in a wheelbarrow after hard nights of drinking -- JWR was a frequent patron in their father's hotel bar), but he refused to teetotal or to condemn people who wouldn't take the pledge, and he had a glass of beer once in a while, no doubt to help prevent "stiffneck". Great attitude AFAIC.
