Gunning for no change: Thousands of armed protesters gather at state capitols in pro-assault rifle rallies across the country

  • 'Guns Across America' rallies held days after President Barack Obama unveiled a sweeping package of gun-control proposals
  • Mass turnout includes thousands in New York and hundreds in Connecticut, New Hampshire and Texas
  • Minnesota state Rep. Tony Cornish said he would push to allow 21-year-olds to carry guns on college campus

The Daily Mail | 19 January 2013

Thousands of gun advocates gathered peacefully Saturday at state capitals around the U.S. to rally against stricter limits on firearms, with demonstrators carrying rifles and pistols in some places while those elsewhere settled for waving hand-scrawled signs or screaming themselves hoarse.

The size of crowds at each location varied - from dozens of people in South Dakota to 2,000 in New York. Large crowds also turned out in Connecticut, Tennessee, Texas, Utah and Washington state.

Some demonstrators in Olympia, Wash., Phoenix, Salem, Ore., and Salt Lake City came with holstered handguns or rifles on their backs. At the Kentucky Capitol in Frankfort, attendees gave a special round of applause for 'the ladies that are packin'.

I was going to ask you to change the title

But then I noticed DailyMail actually calls them assault rifles, too.

Assault rifles they are not, it's important we realize the distinction.

...and...will this fervor...

...last through 2014 elections; really dealing a landside blow to the PTB, king-makers, blah blah blah???

Do we have resources for candidates?
Are we gonna lend our time, talents, and treasure to the cause?
Yep, we're all pissed off again; righteous indignation makes us "take to the streets" once again....


The tyrants are still in office, and they're NOT gonna stop! Obamacare TAXATION in here and increasing...they just voted for more pork, raised taxes on small businesses which will cause more layoffs, and Obama wants his unlimited spending permission via the debt ceiling game....ooooohhhhhh, we're PISSED once again, now about gun control....and....do we think for a second that they FEAR the people????

We're still a minority, the talking heads will have this latest public display of outrage "contained" as they analyze our behavior/signage/associations to "radical right-wing groups" and Alex Jones and Jesse Ventura and 9/11 truth and now our Sandy Hook questions all duly noted....so....

What are THEY gonna do, and what are we gonna do.....to paint a CLEAR picture....that "We the people" run the show within these borders and our halls of government?

We're blowing off tons of steam; but....we're getting our asses kicked by legislation and executive orders and corporate funded, impenetrable media NOISE that courts and owns the attention of DESPERATE people unwilling to stand up, be counted, speak up BECAUSE we're all in a database; all our careers, and our "living expenses"(should we end up unemployed) are government-subsidized!!!!

Enter our Hitler, an army of anti-Christs are about to emerge onto the media scene; who will speak of our concerns, PROMISE to "make it right"....and the duped will trust him, not us - the real grass roots....they'll go for the illusion, I fear!

All we have are our sentiments/arguments on forums like this(DP being the BEST!); I'm more frustrated than the other member who wrote a thread saying "I am so frustrated"

We need to organize, harness this energy; direct it....focus it on legislative seats of power....our populist approach is not slowing down the tyranny.....dammit! We have to make a statement, and corral LOYAL long-term support....before they thrust their anti-Christ conservative Hitler upon the scene, via their professional apologists who are poised to congratulate us on our "successes"...of which are what?; Alex Jones getting national face time?(which causes division amongst us), and we have public rallies(where the professionally unemployed, and our crowd, and neo-cons who like their guns and dislike taxation mingle and wave Gasden flags - yet soon go home and vote for their OWN self-interests or not at all because of false choices)...

What is the gameplan??? Rallies are fleeting, and of none effect upon tyrants; groups compete for funds(Americans for Prosperity tent at Right-to-Work event in Lansing, Michigan recently), and grass roots people waste resources on travel expenses to drive as far as Washington D.C., only to watch Statists get re-elected and fold like Boehner just did at the fiscal cliff sham!

Great signs in

California yesterday too: There was plenty of the standard fare, Gadsden, Moultrie flags, impeach Obama/Biden, From My Cold Dead Hands, etc., but I was interested to see lots of signs about Democide. Someone had a giant blown up pic of this iconic photo http://imgur.com/PeS4EQL
There was a large Green AR-15 = Green Piece; several Molon Labe signs; Nobody Raped a .38! Why carry a semi-automatic pistol? Because cops are too Heavy!

Good stuff.

"Rapists are harder to kill than deer"

Great signs going on here. Particularly liked the little girl's "guns aren't scary. Bad guys are."

"More Gun Laws Won't Stop CRAZY!"

is my favorite.


Columbine kids....

Broke 18 gun laws walking into the school....WHY are kids shooting kids?
