I've read the sticky about the purpose of the forum, and I assure you my intentions are honest (although I'm new to activisim so I'm hoping for a bit of learning if my idea isn't appropriate). Given the increasing support for the RKBA, wouldn't it be possible to consider beginning an effort to get congress to declare some form of National 2nd-Amendment Recogniton Day? I realize that the current congress won't do it, but I'm thinking things are changing. I have some work to do myself before I go any further with this idea; namely finding out exactly how such legislation gets enacted.

I posted about it here because I thought there might be objections that you've all known about for years that I wouldn't yet have encountered. Already been tried and failed? (I did a search but didn't find anything.) Our time is better spent on lobbying for legislative change as opposed to PR? Too "in your face" and liable to provoke a backlash? Or maybe a host of other reasons.

I'm heading to the march in in DC this spring, which seems like a good prelude to this idea. What can I say? "I have a dream." :)

Considering that there are all sorts of "days" declared by Congress it isn't such a far fetched idea.

Why not? I don't want to rain on your parade, but you're talking an uphill climb in sand here. More power to you if can persevere.

Hey great idea!

I was thinking a similar idea:

All RKBA organizations rally their troops for a peaceful "protest" that we call "2nd Amendment Day"

There is a thread in the General Discussion that highlighted a news story about a group of California men that openly carried unloaded pistols (legal in CA). They were completely cordial, intelligent and standing up for our 2A rights.

Why not have all RKBA organizations rally their troops and have a day that all of us go in groups to public areas (lawfully, obviously) and just sit and have coffee in public while our empty pistols rest safely in our holsters . . . I think it could be a powerful message and effective in so many ways.
