Gun Appreciation Day was a big success nationwide. There have been lots of stories on the event, including this one:

Rallies across U.S. assail Obama’s proposed gun curbs

(Reuters) - Pro-gun activists held “high noon” rallies across the United States on Saturday to defend the right to own firearms that they say is being threatened by President Barack Obama’s gun-control proposals.

The U.S. debate over gun control erupted in mid-December after a man armed with an assault rifle killed 20 first-graders and six adults at an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut – the deadliest of a string of U.S. shooting sprees last year.

“We are law-abiding citizens, business owners, military, and we are not going to be responsible for other people’s criminal actions,” former Marine Damon Locke said to applause at a Florida rally he had helped organize.

Some in the crowd of about 1,000 in Brooksville, about an hour north of Tampa, hoisted signs that said: “Stop the Gun Grabbers” and “Gun control isn’t about guns, it’s about control.”

Champaign, IL station WCIA Channel 3 was there at Springfield, Illinois’ Gun Appreciation Day rally on Saturday, January 19th.

At the event, there were hundreds of supporters of the Constitution. A half-dozen speakers told their stories and energized the audience.

CNN was present and showed a live shot of the rally in their report.

Local news outlets were there reporting as well.

Hundreds of pro-civil rights supporters of the Constitution and a half-dozen opponents.

Guess who Channel 3 interviews for their report?

The interviewed an anti-freedom guy, who gave discredited statistics as fact. lied, repeatedly and infamously.

Let's not mince words, here.

Gun-control Freaks are liars. The truth completely contradicts their claims and unmasks their totalitarian motives. What else can they do?

He talks about “supporters of the Constitution” as if he believes it’s a crime.
