2nd Amendment Day of Resistance Armed Rally at My Capital

At my state Capital In Idaho where hundreds of people showed up to the Capital Armed to teeth to show their determined resistance to further infringement on gun rights. This was inside the capital building promoted by Idaho Open Carry And Second Amendment Sisters which is why you will see so many heavily armed Women among the men too ;) We have our problems like other states but where else can you enter the capital building armed to the teeth without some jack boots trying to suppress your rights?

There were several speakers including a couple state legislators willing to push some legislation to protect our gun rights but we'll see talk is cheap.

Here are some photos enjoy. Mods I put the image tags on them can we get these to embed?:

I received an email

I received an email notification the day before the events were to take place. I understand the reasoning behind this, but also realize that this equates to low turnout. I couldn't make it as, I am sure, was the case with the majority. So we need to have more rallys, with the short notice, with increasing frequency.

If my need to be RIGHT is greater than my desire for TRUTH, then I will not recognize it when it arrives ~ Libertybelle

I PROBABLY shouldn't say this.... BUTTttttt.....

so you're all there... armed to the teeth... got all the corporate revenue agents outnumbered perhaps 10-1...

...and then you just went home?

Look I understand what you

Look I understand what you are saying but we are a peaceable people and we will not start it we must maintain the moral high ground of non aggression except in self defense. They must start it and we must exhaust every peaceable means first.

We don't want civil war it will be hell on earth ask any combat vet who has seen a war torn country. We don't want that if we can avoid it. We just want to be left the hell alone to live our lives in freedom to laugh to love and enjoy life.

These gatherings are to make a statement that we will not roll over and let liberty and freedom die if the enemies of freedom mean to try and an take it from us as they continue to threaten us and infringe on those freedoms...

We don't want war but if they mean to have one then we will give it to them spades!

Nice pictures...

but I cringe at the thought of ricochet off all that granite.

There were (I estimate) between 100 and 200 at ours where they had a few parasites telling us how terrible Obama and his executive orders are, while the soldiers and police are our friends. We were outside with 15 or so police cars parked along the street for intimidation and a half-dozen jack boots with MP4s. They were quick to bully some black guy with a basketball who wandered up to see what was going on. I guess the jack boots decided he didn't fit in.

But I guess it's a start. The crowd didn't seem terribly enthusiastic about the Republican rhetoric, and a few people were asking why they were running off the black guy. I think a few people are starting to wake up.

I did not recognize one person in those photos

THAT made my day already! I am sure the Ron Paul supporters were there, but apparently they have FINALLY got some company!
Thanks for much for the pics, hawkiye! I so wished I could go! Is that Second Amendment Sisters a facebook group? Never heard of them before.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

Yeah I saw a few I knew but

Yeah I saw a few I knew but it was hard to get through the crowd so there were probably more that I just was unable to get to see. Idaho Open Carry seems to be taking off with all the threats of gun confiscation. Which is a good thing. Oath keepers were there and getting people to sign an open Letter to the Idaho Sheriffs Association that they honor their oaths and referring them Sheriff Mack's SC case. Also a lot of Anti Sheriff Reinny folks there calling for his recall.

The group was founded by a guy

that Mark woke up. :)
He turned it over to someone else now, but it is still pretty heart warming.

If every state capital in this country looked like that...

... this nation would not be in the situation it is in. It's simply great to see citizens standing up and drawing the line in the sand.

Meanwhile, here in California the Establishment is pushing hard to outright ban and confiscate arms. It's disgusting and no one is really talking about it. I really want to move to another state but leaving family and friends behind would be really hard for me.

Seeing those pics made my weekend.

Thanks for sharing hawkiye !

"The greatest mystery of all is truth." - Me, 2009

I'll be honest friend

I lived in Cali for 30 years, moved a year ago. People talk about taking guns away there all the time, truth is I never knew, or met(and got to know) someone who DIDN'T own at least 1 firearm. Every girl I ever met carried, illegal or not. I know many who have well over 50 guns and many who are well connected and could never be touched. California is like Texas, but we hide our guns from the 'minority' we don't want thinking we have them.

I would bet California is one of the most heavily armed states in the nation. Even if you would t think so from what you hear in the media.

Encouraging indeed

Now I wonder, how many of those folks carrying their ARs are aware of the non-aggression principle?

btw, I think the lady in the red jacket has a .308 AR-10. Very nice!

The founders would be ashamed at us for what we are putting up with.

I thought that was Vash the stampede

My mistake
