Today, Americans in every state will be holding rallies for gun rights at their state capitols. The first pro-gun rallies of the year were held on January 19th and most states had a large turn out. These peaceful demonstrations are expected to attract larger crowds due to unconstitutional legislation submitted by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) on January 24, 2013. The ban would prohibit the sale, transfer, importation and manufacture of over 150 firearms, so-called 'assault weapons' and possibly many more. The bill includes ludicrous and privacy-violating policies such as, "Imposing a safe storage requirement for grandfathered firearms, to keep them away from prohibited persons."
Pro-Second Amendment websites, gun clubs, Tea Party groups, 912 Project groups and others are promoting today's events. One Facebook page, 2nd Right, has connections to each states rally information. Oregon, Washington, Texas and New Jersey have some of the biggest turnouts. If the rallies are anything like last months, there will be a good variety of speakers and maybe some entertainment. Information will available on how people can get involved in the movement to stop Sen. Feinstein and President Obama's gun grab. There are two more upcoming events gaining popularity: The Day of Resistance is planned for February 23rd, also at the state capitols, and Gun Rights Across America's Operation Sheriff Outreach, March 13th, at county Sheriff offices around the country.
Participants are hoping to get American citizens more active in this patriotic fight. The president and his administration obviously have no intention of following the Constitution. They seek to eliminate the 2nd and 4th Amendments. There are currently over thirty anti-gun pieces of legislation before Congress. That is unacceptable. With some states and Sheriff's across the country refusing to enforce the unconstitutional changes if they pass, there's still a chance, albeit small, that pro-gun citizens will be able to remain free of the overreaching government that's slowly turning into a dictatorship.
