What were you trying to say? That you expected more people with guns to show up in defiance of your stupid proposals? I'm sure that can be arranged.

"Swarm" used to dehumanize

and to draw the association between these defenders of Liberty and insectoid pests which need to be eradicated.

Goddamn, these assholes in the press aren't even subtle anymore. Doing Big Brother's bidding outright... and proud of it.

What would the Founders do?

I don't think they realize

how many LAW ABIDING ( how sad right ) patriots there are who have weapons of all shapes and sizes including many that shoot bullets.

when it really comes down to it "votes" don't decide anything when it comes to taking away a natural born right to self defense however you see fit.

I try to change people every day. Do You?

Not Heros

If open carry was banned (as it has been in California) and these people still showed up armed to protest, THEN I would consider them heros.

"SWARMED???" Two hundred people is a "SWARM?" More...

...big exaggerations from the media.

I wonder how long before the close the capitol in Olympia to anyone carrying a gun.

Presently there are no detectors - Anyone can walk right in.

I've been to several offices of state legislators - and even gave one or two a piece of my mind.

I hope they keep it open to we the people (who own it).

MSM Influences the News by Deciding What to Report and HOW!

This is a perfect example. Have you ever noticed that reporters never SWARM to a disaster (even though they often impede investigations with their presence and have to be controlled. Occasionally, this word is used in referring to paparazzi and celebrities, but the MSM never use it in reference to their own, even though they fit the definition perfectly!


What a misleading title for a news story. It's truly insane how even local news agencies, mine included, have taken up the task of vilifying firearms. Open carry of rifles is completely legal in public places, and even though that was BRIEFLY mentioned in the video, they go right on talking about how "surreal" it is to see people armed.

I've got news for lobbyist Jim Richards: He's been walking around this country his entire life in the company of COUNTLESS legally armed citizens. Is it "surreal" when you go to the mall? Is it "surreal" when you go to the grocery store? Because the guns are there, and, WHAT A SURPRISE, everyone remains completely civil.

Oh, America, how far you've fallen.

There were more than 200 people

I'd say around 400.The funny part was when a handful of us girls
went into the capital with our signs,we were told you could not bring in a sign with a stick on it(might poke someone)but it was ok
to bring in GUNS!

VIOLENT & SEX OFFENDERS....by law...have to register

in EVERY state! I know, because that's the way it is here! These violent & sex offenders DO NOT get concealed weapons permits, let alone are they able to get a gun at a retail store. And, if they couldn't purchase one from a friend, they would get one from another criminal they met in prison.

Give me a friggin' break! These politicians are SO INCREDIBLY STUPID, or they are FASCISTS and won't admit it.

I am so utterly sick of these jerks. I wish more & more & more people would rise up this summer & give them the "numbers" in the thousands that they said didn't attend this rally. Maybe, the next time, people will rally in their neighborhoods and bring more people. Several thousand people would send a big, fat message!


Only the bad guys seem to swarm.

How come teachers,union members, or other government employees never seem to "swarm" anything in the news reports?

I was there

We will keep pushing back!We held a rally in Kirkland
a few weeks ago and got a ton of press on that one!

Sweet! Maybe....

....my state doesn't suck as bad as I thought.....nahh it still sucks. :P

Today I will:

Swarm the shower, swarm my closet to put on some clothes, swarm my computer to catch up on the news, and swarm a local restaurant for lunch. See how words don't mean anything anymore? This is double-plus bad.


It's a beautiful thing, isn't it, Winston? The destruction of words?

>>>ALWAYS<<< Listen to the last line of a news clip. Listen to how they sum the story up. That is where they insert the dialetic, such as this story illustrates.
