Idaho's Guns Across America Rallies (panhandle and state capitol)Submitted by jason4idaho on Wed, 01/23/2013 - 15:51
This is Jason, the Secretary of the Republican Liberty Caucus of Idaho here with a quick update on Idaho's portion of the Guns Across America rally held on Jan 19th at noon at our State Capitol building Rotunda. We had two events in Idaho, one at the state Capitol building Rotunda in Boise (where I was one of the speakers) with about 450+ people (according to the Capitol Mall Security team) and the other up north in Couer D'Alene which had an amazing 1500 in attendance.
Idaho Open & Concealed Carry did most of the leg work for the Boise event (in addition to providing a dozen people to work security to watch for any nutjubs fondling their guns or unholstering them). The Boise event went off with out a single notable incident.
We had a few media interviews leading up to the rally and a few after the rally. So far, the media managed to grab about a 50% ratio of sterotyped gun owners (big beards, overalls, etc) to more normal people (which I would like to think I fit into).
The only TV coverage leading up to the event is here:
Some coverage after the event:
Here is some coverage that may hit on the North Idaho event.
I have contacted someone that attended the north Idaho event and I hope to have a report on that event soon as well.
Keep up the fight for all our God Given and Constitutionally protected rights.
