Gun Appreciation Day: January 19th
Gun Appreciation Day.
A new coalition of gun rights and conservative groups has proclaimed January 19, 2013, "Gun Appreciation Day" and begun urging Americans nationwide to show their support for gun ownership by turning out en masse at gun stores, ranges, and shows from coast to coast. Scheduled to send a message to Washington two days before Obama's second inauguration, the "Gun Appreciation Day" is expected to rival "Chick-fil-A Day" as a public statement of protest against government policies.The organizers write in their press release: "We have never had a president who so callously disregards the Constitution, Congress, the courts, and the will of the American people," Ward said. "And that's why this outpouring of public support is so important for our constitutional safeguards to keep and bear arms. If, as this president claims, the American people are at risk from murderous rampagers, the logical solution is to arm, not present a docile target." (Tipped by JMG reader Chris)
"The Obama administration has shown that it is more than willing to trample the Constitution to impose its dictates upon the American people," said Gun Appreciation Day chairman Larry Ward, president of Political Media, Inc. "If the American people don't fight back now, Obama will do the Second Amendment what he has already done to the First with Obamacare - gut it without a moment's thought to our basic constitutional rights."
