The MMM is using the slogan "Halt the Assault" for their event. It doesn't take a lot of gray matter between the ears to figure out they're going to push hard for a new AWB!

I will be in DC on Mother's Day. Who will join me?

WOMEN’S GROUPS HEADED FOR A SHOWDOWN OVER GUNS

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Lakeway, Texas (April 19, 2004) – On Mothers’ Day, May 9th, the Second Amendment Sisters (SAS) will be standing up for the basic human right of self-defense for women and others.

The SAS event in Washington, DC, is called the Second Amendment Freedoms for Everyone Rally, commonly known as the S.A.F.E.R. event. The event is being held at Freedom Plaza, on Pennsylvania Avenue, between 13th and 14th Streets, starting at 11am and concluding at 3pm.

The so-called “Million” Mom March (MMM), an anti-gun group, will be holding a rally in Washington, DC at the same time.

The people’s God-given right to keep and bear arms, as articulated in the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America (a part of the Bill of Rights), is being assaulted on a daily basis by well-funded anti-gun organizations.

Unbelievably, the extremist MMM is asking Congress to renew and strengthen the so-called “Assault Weapons Ban”; a law that even the Centers for Disease Control admits has had no effect on crime. The gun-grabbers are also shooting to reinstate the 5-day Brady waiting period for all gun purchases, which has proven itself to be utterly worthless since its inception.

Among the scheduled speakers for the S.A.F.E.R. event are Shemane Nugent, Niger Innis, Suzanna Gratia-Hupp, and Julia Gorin, all outspoken supporters of Second Amendment rights. For the full list of speakers and further details about the S.A.F.E.R. event, please check the SAS website at http://www.2asisters.org.

SAS is a grassroots organization of volunteers who believe that “Self-Defense is a Basic Human Right”™

I will do my best to be there, even though I am of the male persuasion ;). It is in the middle of exams, I have an ethics exam the next morning, so I'm not sure that'll work.

the MMMommies are orchestrating a conflict:

And at 2:30pm, we will march down Constitution Avenue, west toward the Washington Monument, ending our march at 15th and Constitution, across the street from the Ellipse in front of the White House. The march will also be the send-off for our summer long, Coast-to-Coast Halt the Assault Tour.

I plan on being there, but it doesn't look like we'll have much company.

They also ran a full page ad in the Washington Post today. Nice to have money.
