    My big decision is Portsmouth or Norfolk. Gee, they're SO far apart...

    Make sure to take a sign that says, "HERE LIE UNARMED VICTIMS"

    It is what it is

    National Lying Across America: Once You're Disarmed And Defenseless, That'll Make Everything All Better.

    Gun-Free Zone = Victim Disarmament Zone.

    Gun-Free Zone = Criminal Empowerment Zone.

    When Citizens Are Disbarred From The Means Of Defense, Then Only Criminals Are Armed.

    When Defending Yourself Is A Crime, Then Everyone Is A Criminal.

    Citizens: People With A Stake, A Future.
    Subjects: Living "By Another's Leave."

    Gun-Grabbers: Gun Owners Are Easy Targets.
    Politicians: Apathetic Citizens Are Easy Targets.
    Criminals / Wolves: Sheep Are Easy Targets.
    Sheep Get Slaughtered.

    Citizen: Mommy, May I?
    Nanny State: Only When, Where And How Others Say.

    VT Lesson: Feeling Safe <> Being Safe.

    Barbarism: Defending Your Loved Ones Is Insufficient Cause.

    From My Cold, Dead Hands ... Come And Take It.

    A Nation Of The Strong: Where Citizens Are Strong, Willing And Able.
    A Nation Of The Defenseless: Where Citizens Are Disarmed, Unwilling And No Longer Able.
    Choose.

    Government Has No Specific Legal Requirement To Protect You.
    Government Has No Specific Legal Right To Disarm You.
    Government Has The Specific Power To Protect Government, At Your Expense.

    When Seconds Count And Your Life Is Threatened ... Pick One:
    • Prayer.
    • Pixie dust.
    • 911 telephone call.
    • A defensive tool that can be employed right now.

    Not sure if it's a good idea to politicize this on the anniversary, although these silly demonstrations should be checked in some way.
    By the way, the law was changed in VA so that someone like the VA Tech scumbag would be flagged in a background check.
    "Easy Guns," to these people means,"any guns," period.
    "The right of the whole people, old and young, men, women and boys, and not militia only, to keep and bear arms of every description, not such merely as are used by the militia, shall not be infringed, curtailed, or broken in upon, in the smallest degree..."

    I like the "HERE LIE EASY TARGETS" sign idea.

    +1 This lie-in is just for people that have time on thier hands, with nothing better to do than lie around. Next thing you know there will be a lie-in for people starving because they didn't get their welfare checks on time.
    "These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier
    and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the
    service of his country; but he that stands it now, deserves the
    love and thanks of man and woman."

    -- Thomas Paine (The American Crisis, No. 1, 19 December 1776)

    Actually the list is wrong. They wanted to do it on the VT Drill Field, but the school refused to give them a permit.

    Im not sure of the correct stats, but according to the protest website for NJ, 32 people die by gunfire every day in the U.S. which equals 11,680 people in a non-leap year. So that leaves 88,320 at a minimum who are wounded by gunfire in a year according to their stats. Of those people, how many are criminals killed or injured by other criminals? How many people die each year as a result of automobile accidents? Other than anti-drunk driving groups, who advocates any change of driving laws to combat the excessive loss of life from auto accidents?
    You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, "I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along." . . . You must do the thing you think you cannot do. Eleanor Roosevelt

    I was there at the Kansas one. There were about 40 people (mostly kids) including allot of media; all the TV stations in KC. There was one other pro 2A guy there (not from KSCCW nor MOCCW). KSHB channel 41 briefly interviewed both of us.

    It was very windy so I don't know how the audio of my camera will turn out. I asked the leader a few questions about CCW. He said he supported it, but then I asked about campuses and he said that was a "sanctuary" and should not be allowed, and how the killer was intent on killing (lot's of ammo) and nothing would have stopped it. He then walked off to dodge the questioning by me and the other pro-gun guy. He talked to the media about "closing the gun show loop-hole" and banning "high capacity" magazines.

    I told the media that the killer bought his guns through an FFL, not a "loop-hole", and that NICS has already been altered to bar people who have been judged mentally unstable. I also mentioned the lady who stopped the church shootings in CO.

    I wish I has a big KSCCW sign. We would have gotten it on TV. I could not handle that and push a stroller though (I had my toddler with me).

    Other than that, the whole thing was a typical group grope n' hug hold hands pansy-fest. Makes me want to go to the range.

    Here is my YouTube video. Sorry for the poor audio. It was very windy today.
