Be on the steps of your State Capitol to stand up for your right to bear arms.

Going to a gun show, loading bullets, hunting, or posting about guns here does not count.

Stand up and be counted at your State Capitol! I was there at my State Capitol on Jan 19th, were you?

I'm an Illinois resident, and I attended the Rally in Madison, Wisconsin because of distance. I was a guest of their State, and I was treated very well. I plan to go back to Madison, Wisconsin on February 8th.

I'll be making this sign double sided, and with a sturdier handle than the existing yardstick. The wind in Hartford, CT was bending the yardstick. Posterboard is backed by thick cardboard.

I sure was at my Capital on 1/19/2013 and I will be at the next one.

Hopefully, my wife will come this time. She told me that she will try.

Every person on this forum who didn't go last time needs to go this time on the 8th.

Every person who went on the 19th needs to bring two people who didn't go last time.

Only with numbers will we get the media and the government to pay attention.

I'm so excited to spend my birthday, of all days, at such an important demonstration. My family and I will be present in Lansing, MI. After that, I'm headed to Washington DC to try and make a difference there as well.

I'm taking copies to all the gunshops in town, posting them in their windows and putting them all the vehicles outside.

I'll be posting the flyers at gun shops in town. I am an NRA instructor and I arranged to have a table at our Capitol that day, from 9-11am.

:D I'll be there with pro-2nd Amendment posters, NRA info, and crime prevention flyers. Also donuts and plenty of good conversation for our side and plenty of facts for the fellow travelers of the other side.

For Montana people, I'll have my info/poster tables on the North side of the Capitol, near the statues that are E. of the stairs, between the Capitol and 6th Avenue. PM me if you'd like to network that day.

Also, anyone know who is coordinating for the MT Event? If not, it could be me as I've already made arrangements with the Capitol Facility Services and will be speaking to Helena PD tomorrow, Thursday. I have posted at the 2nd Right FB page as well.

Hmm... too bad it's on a Friday. Was this in order to catch the state government while they're at work?

Yes, that is why they chose a weekday. Here's a link to the facebook event page where this all started:

https://www.facebook.com/events/406312512782872/

I'll be heading to Lansing that day, and I've got several friends coming along with me for the ride.

I hope we get a huge turnout, something that the mainstream media can't possibly ignore.

I will be at the capital in St Paul, MN with at least one friend so far. I still haven't decided on a sign though...

I'll be in Helena MT!

Now a third, and possible forth are coming along. We will all have signs and a large Gadsden flag. I sure hope for a good turn out!

Oh crud, I was thinking this was on a Saturday, since the last one was on a Saturday (swore I read Feb 9). Too late for me to request the time off. Well, bring a friend for me.

I went to Richmond VA, was there from 10:00 to 11:30. At around 11 I counted about 60 participants, no counter-protestors.

I just got back from Lansing, Michigan.

If I had to guess at a head count, I would say there were between 100 and 150 people. No anti-gun folks were around.

I think this turn out was pretty good, since we had a nasty storm last night that left most of the roads in bad shape, and it was only around 27 degrees this morning, with a nasty wind blowing.

We have another one organized for March 20th, here, and all of our state organizations are getting on board with it, so it will probably be a much larger turn-out.

Went to the Minnesota rally today in St. Paul, roughly 100 people there. Very informal, but they did have a pro gun representative speak.

Did anybody have any media? I did not see any at Richmond VA. (Not that sixty-ish folks would make much of a video op. Oh well.)

Went to the one in Oregon. Probably around 2,000 people there, many openly carrying.

Police were friendly and didn't seem on edge at all.

Had fun.

Went in New Jersey, brought my fiancee. I am terrible at estimating numbers of people but I'm thinking a thousandish. We are facing increasing infringement of our rights here, and you could feel the peaceful anger about it in the chants and talks. Everyone seemed to be having a good time (as far as these things go) and from what I saw were very respectful of the grounds and the police who supported the event. I left around 1130 due to the cold and rain getting to my fiancee. We went home, picked up the rifle and our ski clothes, and drove in this snow to the Poconos where we then spent an hour at the range along with my sister, plinking with my Marlin 60 assault weapon.
