A conservative coalition has scheduled the first-ever "Gun Appreciation Day," calling on gun activists around the nation to rally in support of the right to bear arms.
Gun Appreciation Day is set for Jan. 19. Gun activists are asked to turn “out en masse at gun stores, ranges and shows from coast to coast" in an effort to rally against President Barack Obama's “post-Sandy Hook assault on gun rights," according to a press release on the group's website.
"On 01.19.13 go to your local gun store, gun range or gun show with your Constitution, American flags and your 'Hands Off My Guns' sign to send a loud and clear message to Congress and President Barack Obama," the site's landing page urges visitors.
Would just like to point out that this will take place during the weekend celebrating the birthday of Martin Luther King, prince of non-violence, himself killed by a gun.
Also would like to point out that Myrlie Evers-Williams, widow of GUNNED DOWN civil rights activist Medgar Evers, will be giving the invocation at the Inauguration two days later.
A perfect example of point/counter-point. Puts into stark relief where the two sides stand. America will decide which side it feels more comfotrable with.
I would have it no other way.
