    FYI: Jackson may or may not be there . . . he hasn't committed to appear at any of the protests ID'd so far.

    I'm there

    My car is kinda iffy right now, but I will make it there if I have a car that day.

    I talked to someone at the store - They are aware of the impending protest and will be remaining open. I asked if he is having a "Jesse Jackson Discount" but there is not one:(. Either way I will swing in to buy something, maybe he has that Marlin .357 lever action I have been coveting.

    -Bill

    I will be wearing my hat which has a gray gun and discovershooting.net


    One more thing.... the protest is only 12-2 so take a lunch

    From SAS

    **URGENT!** On Tuesday, August 28th, anti-second amendment extremists Rev. Jesse Jackson, Sarah Brady, DC Mayor Adrian Fenty, the Million Moms, and PG County Executive Jack Johnson are spear-heading a protest to promote more laws that will make criminals out of law-abiding citizens, ban recreational and home-defense firearms, and jeopardize personal safety!
    Our constitution and liberty itself are at stake!

    Please join us as we Shop and Rally at Realco Guns, Inc., 6108 Marlboro Pike, District Heights, MD 20747 - from noon to 2 PM. Realco opens at 10:00 AM.

    It's an easy drive from DC or the Beltway, so please stop by over lunch and purchase merchandise from Realco and support law-abiding gun owners and gun dealers.

    Realco has been the target of an unfounded smear campaign using manipulated statistics and half-truths, and Jackson and his cronies hope to plant the seeds of doubt about a law-abiding businessman and eventually force his store to close. Our community depends on the honest, hard-working people at Realco to provide useful tools to keep families safe.

    Come out and help us give Realco a record day of sales! MAP

    The Mayor and Town Council have approved our request for a permit, and the SAS banner will be on display. We ask that everyone wear SAS or other pro-second amendment gear, if you have it. I will have a limited number of SAS items available and Maryland Shall Issue (MSI) also plans to have some gear available. Bring your family and friends to a fun day of shopping and take the opportunity to exercise your rights guaranteed by the U.S. constitution.

    The city of District Heights has prepared for the event to make our day safe and enjoyable. Our rally area is next door to Realco (Jackson's is on the opposite side) so we don't impede Realco's business in our zeal to support them. The chief of police is planning for organized parking so we can park close by. Other details will be posted here as they become available (click refresh in your browser).

    Henry Heymering of MSI reminds us "Don't forget to be polite and non-confrontational. We're there to show that gun rights are supported by the most trustworthy and law-abiding people."

    If you love freedom and liberty, we need you in Maryland on August 28!

    I've never heard of Realco, but I thank Mr Jackson and the Brady's for letting me know where Realco is located. I'll see some of you there Tuesday. :evil:

    I got it too, but this alert went into my emails spam trap. Most of the time I delete it with out even looking.
    If I wasn't over seas I might go to the store in MD, no wait the 28th is on a tuesday. What the heck don't these loosers have jobs to go to? :barf:
    This is the high light of what I got:
    Newark: a rally at a park near the school where the recent, tragic shootings took place
    Washington, D.C./District Heights, Md.: a protest at a gun store in Maryland that is responsible for the most crime guns found in D.C.
    Dallas: a march down Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd. and rally at a local church
    Denver: a silence vigil to protest recent shootings
    Duluth, Minn.: a bell-ringing for gun violence victims at city hall
    Ewing, N.J.: a kick-off BBQ for Operation Ceasefire
    Houston: a "freeway blog" over a busy highway
    Minneapolis: an anti-violence coalition breakfast and Protest Easy Guns lie-in
    Philadelphia: Protest Easy Guns lie-in and community forum
    Phoenix: a candlelight vigil at the Arizona state capitol
    San Diego: community forum on illegal guns
    and Protest Easy Guns Lie-Ins in Seattle, Raleigh, Philadelphia, Portland (Maine), Minneapolis, St. Paul, Richmond/San Pablo (Calif.), and Springfield


    Yea I can see that one in Maine going real far. Maine is far more proGun then VA.

    What to do about the Brady-ites

    If they show up and hassle a single gun or ammo shopper, have them arrested - just like the anti-abortion protesters are arrested for talking to people on their way into Planned Parenthood clinics. :evil:

    I can't go during the announced time, but I will be making a stop by later on to make a token purchase in honor of the protest.

    I sincerely hope that the result of this action is that Realco has the biggest day of sales in recent memory.

    Well, if I still lived in MD I would be there. Lived in Chicago, so I know about the rev Je$$ee Jack$on. My sympathies to you Marylanders because of guv. O'malley and the "gun grabbin' Brady bunch" socialists that run the state.

    When I called Realco they said something about 10% off tomorrow for their supporters...not sure if that just ammo or everything. I'll swing by and make my purchase to show support and hopefully that hatemonger assclown JJ will still be there when I come by

    I just saw this thread, and I am thinking of trying to leave work early tomorrow and help our side and support Realco. So, maybe I`ll see some of you guys there. :)

    I have a meeting from 9:00 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. tomorrow.

    Unfortunately, I can't make it there to give support.


    I've done business with Realco since 1979.

    I'll try to get by there after work.

    byf43,

    Can you give me a rundown of what kind of stuff they stock? Not one member on mdshooters.com has ever been there and I'm a little unsure what to plan to purchase when I get over there.

    It's a haul, but I can't think of any place I would rather be, it should be fun to show up Fenty and Sarah in their own backyard, especially if the turnout is anything like the SB43 hearing in Annapolis, 500+ gunnies standing shoulder to shoulder makes quite the statement:)

    In physical size, Realco is a fairly small shop, but, he carries all sorts of rifles, pistols, revolvers, shotguns and ammo.

    As I stated above, I've done business with Realco for many years.
    I know the owner on a 'business level' and have shot with him and beside him at different times.

    He's one heck of a nice guy. I can say without reservation that he is one of the most honest and gracious gentlemen that I've had the pleasure to meet and know in the shooting sports.

    I truly regret not being able to be there, to support him, tomorrow.

    For a little background of what we are up aggainst, and why. keep in mind according to these folks 498 out of 2,656 is "most", this should be good practice for 08 election time, lets give these liars who are trying to take our rights away a warm Maryland welcome

    Does anyone know if the VCDL is going to be assisting? They have a long history of battling the MMM, and with MSI there this should be a proud moment for us pro 2A folks, buy stuff, or don't buy stuff, it doesn't matter as much as if you show up to support our rights.

    I'm going to buy something to support the shop as they come under this politically motivated attack. I can't go during the protest because it's the second week of classes and I can't miss time with my students this early in the school year.

    in context
    I meant that some of us folks who are broke, can still contribute to the cause, I did not mean that folks shouldn't buy from the shop, in fact I hope they make an all time sales record.

    I cleared it up a little to better reflect my meaning
