Carson City NV went well, I was worried about the turnout since apathy is our biggest enemy. But I was happily surprised that there was a lot of folks out there. Some open carry and a few rifles over the shoulders but just like other places a very respectful rally. Some good info going around. I'd guess more than 500 there.
They had one at the state capital here in S.C.I didn't go,but,a friend of mine did.He said there were around a couple of hundred people there,give or take.They had a 2 day gun show,not far from it.He said it was so crowded,he didn't stay long.
Alabama went well. We had about 500 folks.
The guy with the Confederate flag and the handful of Confederate reenactors did not help our image... Nothing against the Confederacy, but unfortunately those symbols have been demonized.

Not sure how things went in Springfield. Up in northern IL folks are too busy cracking fun at the two negligent discharges all over the news.

Was at the capital in Nashville, not near as many as I hoped, prob 200 maybe near 300. But it was a great crowd, had good speakers. Saw James Yeager and hickok 45 there. Was proud to be there and a part of it. If your in Tn you need to contact your representatives and tell them to support hb 42!
The stupidity of some people NEVER ceases to amaze me.
Great turnout in Olympia today! The wife and I were there. We had some good speakers and a good cross-section of the population; ex- and current military, moms with kids and dogs, some in business casual, and even a few in camo but not too many. The only bad part was it was cold. Glad I went.

Pretty good turnout in Salem. Police estimated over 1k. Not bad for a "liberal" state, and with the capitol so far from the demographics most likely to support the cause.
Quite a few good speakers. Lots of cars driving by honking and giving thumbs-up. Only problems were the cold, and bikers occasionally firing up their engines making it impossible to hear the speakers.
One counter-protester spotted. Grungy-looking stoner type, marijuana pin and all.
250 plus or minus in Topeka, Ks would like to have seen more but it went well..
I couldn't get off from work. : (
It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.
This does not help the cause:
One news station here in Cali said 500 showed up. My daugter and I attened.
