Gun Rights Rally at State Capital Building

  • Jan 19, 2013 · 11:30 AM
  • Arizona State Capital Building

I had heard rumors of a 'National Second Amendment Rally' being called for at all State Capitals, but had nothing concrete reported of any Arizona participation until today.

I received the flyer you see from the Assistant Organizer of another MeetUp Group I belong to that are also strong 2A people.

the website http://www.guncontrolmorecrime.com/ looked good, but after watching the video I had to call the AO back because of 'Nutnfancy' stating at 11:00 mins in "not to bring rifles" and that there would be no "display of armaments".  I was told that was just 'suggested'.  I certainly hope so.

here is the video:

I can find no posting of it on any National or Arizona NRA website, which I would think would be there if the NRA logo was being used with permission.

 That said...

I am told "it will be happening, so we might as well show up."  This leads me to believe that others from the other MeetUp Group will be attending, even though I see no Event on that Calendar yet.  (I say yet because I will be 'suggesting' the event there as soon as I am done with this posting.)

We all know what was said on TV today, and someone needs to say SOMETHING BACK. 

I'm going to show up this Saturday, that's for sure - with a sign saying what I want it to say, and hopefully it will be seen by the media.  That's the goal at this point (for me, anyways). 

Discuss in the comments section your opinions, and what information you may have to offer everyone.

    Next rally is scheduled for February 16 (same place). I saw several TV reporters (channel 5 & 12) and other media reporters too. Gotta give a shout-out to the AZ legislator that said he would die before he gave up his guns (not something you hear every day). Can't speak for the other states but my son went to the Rally in Wisconsin and it had a really good/big turn out and it was cloudy and 14 degrees.

      Do you think people will bring their rifles again?
      I just packed my Glock pistol because I went to the gun show in the AM and didn't want to leave my AR in the car. After seeing all the rifles on slings at the gun rally I had wished I brought mine too.

      Technically the AR-15 is just a semi-auto. An assault rifle is the full auto. Not many civilians actually own one.

    Good turnout of Patriots but news coverage and accountable legislators were nowhere to be found.

    Decent turnout.

      I would love to see more but it was a good turnout indeed.

    I see in the RSVP Chuck is asking where at the Capital we will be meeting up - there is a new Monument to The Bill of Rights, and we will be meeting at the rock with The Second Amendment on it for a Group Photo (while doing Recon on the way in and assessing the situation for discussion of our 'next move'). Sound like a plan?

      Correct. Anyone can show early - I'll try to be, but can't guarantee that. I'm sure by Noon we'll figure out where we want to be.

      If I get my butt up early enough I plan on going to the gun show first but will try to make it to the Capital by 11:30

      I'm not familiar where the Monument is at.
      Crossroads to the area?
