Thank you for the reminder though!
This could backfire... If the group that turns out acts like a Ted Nugent fan club it would play directly into the worst fears of anti-gunners. Signs and chants that echo sentiments like "they'll have to pry my gun out of my cold, dead hands" it will do more harm than good. Far too many people consider gun owners and advocates as a bunch of trigger-happy crazies. We need to change that to the image of respectful, conscientious, safe, and law-abiding citizens.
The problem with gun control is that drugs are already illegal.
Got an email from my local grass roots organization Michigan Gun Owners and they said they have approved the use of a banner and will reimburse me charges reserving the steps and sidewalk to the Capitol building and the hanging of the banner on the pillars.
Anyone in the Houston/ N Houston area want to start a caravan to Austin?
As one can see there are not many people raising their hands to participate in the announced rallies, but I must say most conservatives are employed which makes it difficult to participate, not so for the left wingers, the majority are on the dole, and have plenty of free time, after they use their EBT and WIC free shopping cards, to rally for their cause.
You are 100% correct. Turn out is pretty much directly linked with employment. I have taken the day off to attend this. I think my rights are worth sacrificing a vacation day and standing out in the cold.
I'll be there in Montgomery!

I wish I could be... but my family/new job situation will prevent me from taking the day off of work.. im so sad now! Pyzik you gotta get 2 people to show up in my place!
January 19 at noon is another date ive heard. Both dates would be great but I think a singleday would be better. And feb 8th might be too late. If something is bound to pass , I think it would be best to be heard before any final draft is written up
Yeah, I'm not sure which was started first. But at the time I found the one on Feb 8th had more followers.
