    what's the consensus, is this really going to happen?

    I'm happy to drive a couple hours and show up in Harrisburg, but i don't want to be the only one.

    A check on the facebook event "Guns across America" by "Gun Control = More Crime" shows 5,500 people attending and 1,700 maybes.

    Also on that facebook event page people are organizing by state with emails for questions about your states event.

    I pulled PAs info for you in case you dont have facebook sean326
    PENNSYLVANIA- WALLLEE814@GMAIL.COM
    It looks like PA will have more attending than some of the other states ATM.

    Spread the word. 7 Days left to rally.

    I applaud the effort and I would most definitely do this, but why on a Saturday?

    Thanks I found it, I'll be there. I wish they planned it a little more in advance it would be great to have had time for all our organizations and publications to publicize this.

    Rally at State capitals

    Checked on Facebook. Feb 8th appears to be the date, not Jan.

    There is a conflict two groups two dates it's on other threads on the board.
    I think it should be the February date to get us more time to organize.

    ATBackPackin, Im not sure why the creator chose a saturday. My guess is that more people have weekends off.

    BubbaRay and sean326, Why just one demonstration? Why not two demonstrations? The january event can be considered practice. If you feel there was not enough organization you will know what to improve first. Like well spoken and thought out answers to the questions and comments the antis will throw out there.

    Alot can happen in 7 days.

    If the occupant of the White House decides to try his Executive Powers you may not have time enough to act with a February date. I will go January 18th. If there is another date in Feb I will go to that as well.
    I would not wait, or consider the Jan date as practice or you might be practicing at the gun registration counter.
    I know,"I'll never..." but if you wait, or falter or blink our rights will be gone . Please take EVERY opportunity to make the preservation of our 2nd Amendment rights a frequent and positive message in the minds of the public.

    Springfield, Illinois here I come. Aside from voting in every election, local, state, and national, since 1972 I have never really gotten involved. That has ended. I urge you to join the NRA, and your state rifle association. The next AWB Will be PERMANENT. Our great grandchildren will wonder why we didn't do more.

    January 19th it is. I am going to send off a letter for myself and my wife to our Representative and Senators (again) and one to Walmart to stand against any deals with the President.
    Snail mail letters will work even better if you have the patience to hand write that many letters, I don't.

    Same great message and support for the Second Amendment.

    January, 19th 2013, Noon, At your states capital.

    Ohio Rally - Guns Across America

    All, I am helping to organize the event in Ohio. I hope to see all of my statesmen and women there. The Rally got off to a rocky start but we currently have about 175 RSVP'ed for the event. The facebook event page is a great place to get more information. But here is the general info:

    Guns Across America, A Pro 2nd Amd Rally
    Saturday, January 19, 2013 at Noon.
    The public sidewalk and public areas outside The Ohio Statehouse in Columbus.
    Bring a picket sign with a pro-2nd Amd Slogan (Be Creative)

    We will not be on Statehouse grounds. A permit is required and firearms are not allowed on Statehouse grounds. Many supporters will be carrying a firearm openly or concealed. I have spoken with the Statehouse and Columbus PD. They are aware we are coming. Columbus PD has been very supportive They have no issues with us carrying firearms in accordance with the law. They prefer that we have no magazines in rifles or at a minimum the action open. However, they also acknowledge that we have the right to carry with a loaded mag and one in the chamber.

    I understand there is another event on Feb 8 hosted by another group. I encourage you to attend BOTH. I doubt one rally will get through the thick skulls of the White House.

    We need your support. I hope to meet you there.

    If you can't make it, please share this event with everyone you know who supports the right to bear arms.

    Ron Jaworski

    I'm going to my local event. I wonder what percentage of folks that have pissed and moaned on here, will do the same. Get a friend (or ten). These events, will get publicity so the stronger the showing the better. If they have weak turn out that will really send the wrong message.

    I will attend and my personal goal is to get at least 10 others to go. I know way more than 10 pro gun people so it shouldn't be hard to find at least ten to go. If everyone would do that we could have some good showings.

    For all my fellow High Road members from the great state of South Dakota, is there going to be a rally in Pierre at the state capital? I can't find any links online, and sorry, I don't do Facebook.

    Please advise.
