Today is the first day of the fairgrounds gun show for April. I will be out there at the Second Amendment March table. Eveyone should come on out and have a look. Stop by the table and we can visit for a while. Maybe I can get you to sign our petition.
When the show ends Sunday, we will be only 8 days away from the Second Amendment March. I'm being contacted by more and more people wanting details about the march.
The mission statement of the Second Amendment March;
The mission of the Second Amendment March is to galvanize the courage and resolve of Americans; to petition our elected officials against establishing anti-gun legislation; and to remind America that the Second Amendment is necessary to maintain our right to self defense.
The march in D.C. will take place on Monday, April 19, 2010 on the grounds of the Washington Monument. The march is from 10:00 am till 4:00 pm.
There is also a code of conduct;
NO UNLAWFUL POSSESSION OF FIREARMS, ammunition (including empty cases), or magazines (including empty). There is no reciprocity with any states to speak of, no recognition of licenses issued by other states, no provision for non-residents to exercise their 2A right in D.C.
2. If you do not intend to comply with item #1, do not attend.
3. It is each attendee's own personal responsibility to be familiar with the firearm laws in the areas in which he/she will be traveling.
4. Please be courteous to everyone you encounter, including D.C. police and National Park Service rangers.
5. Please be sure to dispose of all trash. Let's strive to leave the grounds in better condition than when we arrive.
6. If you have any concerns while at the event, please notify a volunteer or event organizer immediately.
You would think that in the Nations Capital, you could exercise your constitutional rights. The problem is the liberals in charge are afraid of the criminals that run rampant on the street. And the ones on the city council. Heaven forbid if a law abiding citizen defended his/her self from some democrat voter thug with a gun. Tourists are fair game in DC.
The March here in Des Moines will start at 12:00 noon on the west side of the capital. It will run till 3:00 pm. As far as carrying weapons, let your conscious be your guide. I have always subscribed to the idea that concealed is concealed. There will be volunteers around to help out if you need it.
I'm sure that knowing the type of people that carry weapons and support the 2nd Amendment, they will be a calm and receptive group. So you anti-gun folks can relax. There's not going to be any shootouts on the capital grounds. So come on down and see what we have to say. You never know, we might get you interested in a new hobby. I've seen quit a few people over the years that had never shot a gun before that really enjoyed it. We can make arrangements to get you some range time if you want to give it a try.
Everyone has a great weekend. It looks like the weather is going to be just wonderful. Be safe and if you get a chance, come by the fairgrounds and look us up.
