Many of you may have noticed that the group that originally was called the Million Gunowners March has been renamed to sound less threatening and include non-gun owning second amendment supporters.
The new name is The Second Amendment March.
The main website is located here:http://secondamendmentmarch.com/
Stop in and sign up for the newsletter.
And the forums are here: http://secondamendmentforum.com/
Join us and help plan and implement what is hoped to be the largest public pro second amendment demonstration(s) ever.
Note: The original forum software for TSAM crashed just after the 1000th user registered. The new forums are up and running on different, more robust software and bigger and better hardware. The databases for the first forums were lost so if you were registered on them you'll have to re-register.
Pass on this information, join in, and help in any way you can.
We want to make the Million Mom March look like a neighborhood tea party!!

Gun 4 Fun

The following is referrencing an e-mail that I sent Skip Coryell. I got tired of everyone saying they were going to do something about our rights, but then not doing anything. I am no one special. I just knew that MCGRO is very active in protecting our 2A rights, and thought maybe they would have a better idea of how to get this started than I would. I had no idea it would get this big this fast, but I'm glad it did.
If a plain jane guy like me can send an e-mail and get something this big going, just think what could happen if everyone decided to get invloved, instead of saying "let the NRA do it". I beleve that those who are against the march, are just not wanting to spend the money to go, or they are too lazy to get up and take a stand. Too many people are believing the chosen one won't take away our rights. It's a shame they'll only see the truth in hindsight.
Condensed for size...
The Million Gunowner March
by Skip Coryell
I received another email just yesterday. It was from a fellow patriot who said:
"I am a fellow gunowner and supporter of the second amendment. I have been chatting with a bunch of fellow gun lovers on the S&W forum about trying to get a million man march on Washington organized. Since I know very little about doing so, I thought I'd write you on behalf of all of us. We would like to get some help organizing such an event. We would like to be able to get the word out to as many gun owners as possible and encourage them to join us."
That idea struck me as good, so I got involved. First, I emailed Ted Nugent and asked him to headline a "Million Gunowner March" on Washington DC. Here is his response:
"It is time. IF coordinated with NRA, GOA, JFPOFO, MCRGO, SCI, NWTF, RMEF, DU, FNAWS, etc etc & all gunrights orgs, I would be proud to join/lead the fray!!!"
This is how it works folks. Every revolution throughout history has always started with a single person. One ordinary person wakes up, looks around and says "Hey! This isn't right! Someone should do something! "And that someone is you and I. We are one small part of the Million Gunowner March. The next thing I did was email Chuck Perricone, Executive Director of Michigan Coalition for Responsible Gunowners and asked if they'd like to be involved. His response was similar to Ted's:
"The answer is, "YES"...and we'd like to handle the press/recruiting. We can knock this out of the park. FANTASTIC idea, Skip."
Hmmm, I see some possibilities here. I see excitement. I see motivation. I see patriots with guns! I see a peaceful (but loud) march on Washington DC, on the Capitol steps, down Pennsylvania Avenue, with Ted Nugent singing his electrified version of the National Anthem as loud as he can. Maybe I can get Toby Keith too? And I like that song by LC Greenwood "God Bless the USA". That one just brings chills to my tired, old, gun-totin' body.
I'll have to check into that. In the meantime, I logged on and bought the domain name www.milliongunownermarch.com. It is my donation to the cause. Now, since I'm computer clumsy, we need someone to step forward and build the website. Any computer-savvy volunteers out there willing to build a website for us?
You know the frustrating part of a movement, is that too many people wait for someone else to step forward and do what needs doing. It's known as the crowd mentality. People wait until it looks safe, then they step out and join. A few weeks ago I quoted Mark Twain, and it bears repeating.
"In the beginning of a change, the patriot is a scarce man, brave and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot."
Well, America, this is the beginning of a change and it is no time for the timid. This is the time for brave men and women to stand up and be counted. Because, I just have a feeling, that America's time may be running out. I don't want to live in a nation of Euro-sheep. I want my children to inherit the freedom our forefathers knew. But freedom has to be protected or it will fall. I suspect, my freedom-loving friends, that we are at a crossroads. Now, assuming we are smart enough to see it, and that we are brave enough to take the road less traveled, perhaps, America, just perhaps, there is still time to save our liberty. The time to act is now. We must march now, or forever hold our piece (rendered inoperable by the government).
So, I'll ask again. "Who's going to build that website?" Send your response to email@example.com. But please hurry, Obama is warming up his fiddle.
