2nd Amendment March in Phoenix
Armed March Coordinates with National Rally
"Million Gun March" energizes the public
Right to assemble on capitol grounds
"It's just people taking their firearms out for a walk."
"Million Gun March" on Phoenix April 19 at Noon
It looks like Arizona will have its own "Second Amendment March" on Monday, April 19, to coordinate with the massive gun-rights rally expected in Washington D.C. http://www.secondamendmentmarch.com
What I hear is that a lot of people are planning to take their safely holstered sidearms out for a walk to the state capital from High Noon to 2 p.m. No one is organizing this thing, it's pure grass roots, no speechifying, no sound stage, just brown bag lunches on the lawn.
By the time people swing by in Phoenix (1700 W. Washington, just west of Wesley Bolin Plaza), the D.C. event will be nearly over due to the time difference. So we'll know how well that went as long as we get our info anywhere but the lamestream "news" that suppresses such things. (The 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. east coast rally is 7 a.m. - 1 p.m. local time here.)
In Arizona, with all the firearm freedoms we enjoy, it'll be more like a celebration of our rights and "the shot heard 'round the world" than a protest rally against the evil elitist anti-rights bottom-feeding bigots clustered in D.C. The massacre of Colonists on the town green at Lexington and the battle at Concord later that day occurred on April 19, 1775.
In fact, local politicians who will be in session during this picnic are not particularly invited unless they are willing to bow and scrape before we the sovereigns, and kiss our rings, at least that's what I hear. Actually, we do have some excellent very pro-rights politicians in this state, and some will likely show their faces and press the flesh.
I plan to just descend on the capital and bring a hero sandwich, to hearken back to America's heroes past and present (plus, I really like hero sandwiches even though they're fattening). Will I see you there?
I'll also bring some homemade signs, something about our gun rights, just like most other people will do.
Musician and libertarian Sharlene Holt of Musicians For Freedom <firstname.lastname@example.org> is in touch with Skip Coryell, who's organizing the D.C. event, and she might have more information if you need it. But if you're an average American, you should be able to figure this all out on your own, it's not terribly complicated. What a great chance to show where we stand, and use our First Amendment right to assemble to honor our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.
