To the folks attending the rally be vigilant and very careful.
The government is just looking for an excuse and the opportunity to take you out.

Local news affiliates and editorials are mostly anti-2AM.

The rally kicks off at noon. Weather looks chilly, but no rain. Spring in New England...

In other words become the new heroes and oulaws. Pack your pistols even if you have to conceal them. You have a chance to make a statement to the rest of the nation if the Nazis try to disarm you.

Seriously??? I get what your trying to do, but you've already been ignored numerous times. Sure seems like the definition of insanity. They haven't listened, and they aren't going to listen this time either.

Indeed, the vanity of the suicidal self murdering liberal government wants to avoid punishment. This is the issue with death penalty, it is meant to kill and prevent murder by self. But the libs are barricading themselves with rhetoric while claiming they come out of the closet... it truly is a mental trap. George Washington had slaves? Please, indeed.

Gun owners need to be aware that the opposit side needs to be saved, so to speak, by being opposed, rejected, punished or what have you, instead of murdering itself or pushing the vanity to murder suicide. The bad witnessing need not be accused beyond bad witnessing, plus or minus projectioning its own accuzations on us.

Some people have predicted America in any character depicted in the movie Saving Private Ryan, for example. Collective cults of priviledges tend to act as a single individual.

Oh yeah, sure - why try?

After all King George would have happily turned us loose if we just asked him, right?

Ever occur to you that politicians just might be impressed if enough of the people show up?

“I get what your trying to do, but you’ve already been ignored numerous times.”

That’s why it is important to do this. You don’t stay home and hide if the govn. is trying to take away your right to have rifles - you go protest and keep doing it.

Any conservative publicly expressing politically incorrect views jeopardizes his personal security and makes him a target for the FBI, DHS, IRS, OSHA and the EPA.

Rallies and talking won't solve a damn thing. You have a communists Democrat empire in this State and until you unseat this rotten bunch of sick idiots it will solve nothing.

But they aren’t impressed. So if your going to show up, take some tar and feathers and send a real message.

They've already taken your right to legally own. So the turnout was needed well before now to try and sway them. The law has been passed and is in effect.

It’s become a corrupt parochial backwater. Look at all the mayors in jail, and the governor too.

“They’ve already taken your right to legally own.”

So you protest an unconstitutional law.

Give up if you want, I will be at the head of the protestors, screw the FBI, DHS, IRS, OSHA, EPA. Live free or die - words mean things.

I guess as long as they feel good about it. But your right, it won't change a damn thing.

Thanks for the link to the live feed - I’m “stuck” down here in Texas and sad I couldn’t be there with y’all.

Against the insanity quip is the observation that if it took 100 hammer blows to crack a boulder, it is not simply the last blow that cracked it, it is all that went before. Patience is a virtue.

This has annoyed a goodly segment of Connecticut into caring. Good.

The crowd is estimated at over 3,000.

Virtually no media coverage.

What will it take to make larger Connecticut sick of the sick idiots? It has to begin with visibility.

Not old media. But as of now it could still be Facebooked and Tweeted. They haven’t gotten that draconian. Yet.

The event is on Twitter and Instagram.

Facebook is dark.

National media is dark. Local Fox affiliate briefly covered it. Local print media is on record as anti-2AM.
