Hundreds of Second Amendment
advocates join pro-gun rallies
in U.S. capitals

Associated Press, by Staff

Posted By:JoniTx, 1/19/2013 10:36:11 PM

AUSTIN, Texas — Hundreds of gun owners and Second Amendment advocates rallied in state capitals nationwide Saturday, days after President Barack Obama unveiled a sweeping package of federal gun-control proposals. Some 600 attendees in Austin, Texas, carried signs bearing messages such as "An Armed Society is a Polite Society" and "The Second Amendment Comes from God." About 2,000 people — many carrying American flags and "Don´t Tread On Me" banners — turned out for the chilly outdoor rally at the New York state capitol in Albany. The "Guns Across America" rallies,

"Hundreds" means thousands when it comes to gun-owners or tea parties. Much like "thousands" means dozens when it comes to some left-wing cause...

Can you imagine all the leftists standing in line to demagogue this? Of course racists would be the first thing to pop in their "minds". Maybe the NRA paid all these people to show up since they have money to burn from the new memberships.

The TV footage of the rallies in Frankfort, Kentucky, never showed a picture of the entire crowd. All the shots were closeups and edge of the crowd scenes. There must have been a lot of people there. I haven´t heard about any mass shootings while all those gun owners were assembled, though.

Yes, no doubt the LSM journalists will be engaged in cropping gone wild, to diminish perceived turnout.

It´s about time the poseur in chief and Oh no Cuomo met some resistance. They ain´t seen nothing yet.

So cops carrying in New York state, mitakenly omitted from any exclusion clause are now breaking the law? Citizens arrest time. ha ha.

The rally in Hartford, CT yesterday was well over a thousand, I would estimate closer to two thousand. The crowd was respectful, orderly, and a good cross-section of age groups, children to seniors. SeeBS local news Eyewitness TV3 said ´hundreds attended´ and showed video of those standing in the parking lot way to the rear of the main, packed crowd on the lawn in front of the Capitol steps. Very selective and deceptive depiction of how large the rally really was. NBC affiliate did show the main lawn, but in close ups and said one thousand attended. Both stations featured men and skipped showing the many seniors and families who attended. These TV stations did the same thing with our Tea Party rallies, reporting low crowd turnout when the truth was that they were crowded. Oh, I am so shocked!

Local media in Nashville reported 1,000. The gun show was so crowded we parked more than half a mile a way and waited in line 15 minutes just to get inside the door. My husband didn´t find what he wanted at the show, so we stopped at our local gun shop - wall to wall people inside. The owner said it has been that way every day they have been open since November, with many customers buying their first gun.

I did not go to any rally on Gun Appreciation Day. Rather, I went to my favorite gun store to pick up my new Arsenal AK-47.

I guess you would call that my own private celebration.

My daughter just found lots of photos of the rallies on Google by searching "Guns Across America". In states with open carry laws a lot of people showed up with their big scary looking "assault weapons" slung over their shoulders. It was a beautiful sight. And #2 is right - no one got shot.

"Authorities reported no problems at early rallies, which remained peaceful Saturday afternoon."

The above statement speaks volumes. The AssPress would just love to get a picture of a fight at a conservative event, any conservative event. We are not like the union goons and occupy-whatevers that can´t project a message without beating somebody up.

Good choice, #9. The AK hits hard and is accurate at a practical distance. It´s also trouble free.

Let me say up front that there is no doubt in my mind that Obama means to disarm us. That´s why gun control came up now. [Sandy Hook was just a convenient crisis; these hings happen about once/quarter, it seems.] Obama must disarm us to realize his dreams, one of which is to make presidential term limits a murky memory.

But I think what is happening now is more a probing for weakness on our side (a la Sun Tzu), or probing us and measuring our response, as in PARPRO.

PARPRO is the acronym given to Patrol Aircraft Reconnaissance Provocation. Put your assets in place, then violate the enemy´s airspace and measure his physical and electronic response. Lots of intel to be gathered this way; the Russians and Iranians do it to us all the time.

Sun Tzu puts it this way: "Therefore know the enemy’s plans and analyze their strengths and weaknesses. Provoke them to know the patterns of their movements. Determine their dispositions of force to know the terrain of death and of life. Probe them to know where they have strength, and where they are insufficient.”

Have you not noticed that we spend most of our tim reacting to Obams administration (and media) stimuli? We need to rock them by going on offense.

No, I am no more optimistic than I was on 11/7/2012. I am just a mildly-amused observer of the increasing rate of national decline.

Has anybody taken note of how fast all of these extensive recommendations were produced after the shooting? It makes one wonder if they had been prepared earlier for some earlier “crisis.” That earlier crisis could have been major gunrunning that put assault weapons in the hands of the Mexican drug cartels, resulting in wholesale murder and carnage in Mexico.

That crisis evaporated when it was revealed that ATF was responsible for this gunrunning in operation “Fast and Furious.”
For some reason, prohibiting the Federal government from conducting gunrunning operations was missing from the Obama recommendations.

The list WAS already prepared by one of Obama´s off-shoot organizations superheroes for America or whatever they call it. They had 23 items, but Obama only used 22.
Obama is going to slam us these next 4years. We all know that. Gun control, immigration, global warming you name it, he is going to provoke US. He also will go down as the WORST person to live in the WH ever.

Scott Eastwood may be following in his father´s footsteps by becoming an actor, but he´s made it perfectly clear that his true passions lie elsewhere. In the new issue of Man of the World, the 27-year-old son of Clint Eastwood opens up about his love of all things physical, saying: ´If I didn´t do this, I´d be a fireman; something super-active that challenges you and is different every day.´ Scott - who stars with Brad Pitt and Shia LaBeouf in upcoming movie Fury - added that when it comes down to it, acting isn´t something that should be taken seriously.

A treaty signed in 1994 by the US and Britain could pull both countries into a war to protect Ukraine if President Putin´s troops cross into the country. Bill Clinton, John Major, Boris Yeltsin and Leonid Kuchma – the then-rulers of the USA, UK, Russia and Ukraine - agreed to the The Budapest Memorandum as part of the denuclearization of former Soviet republics after the dissolution of the Soviet Union. Technically it means that if Russia has invaded Ukraine then it would be difficult for the US and Britain to avoid going to war. The revelation comes as reports suggest the

Minutes after issuing a stern warning to Russia and saying there will be a price to pay if it interferes militarily in Ukraine, President Obama headed to a “happy hour” with fellow Democrats. Speaking at a fundraiser for the Democratic National Committee, Mr. Obama struck a very different tone than he had less than 30 minutes earlier, when he appeared with little warning in the White House press briefing room and issued a vague threat to Moscow. “Well, it’s Friday. It’s after 5 o’clock. So, this is now officially happy hour with the Democratic party,” the president told his cohorts.

Speaking to the Democratic National Committee Friday night, President Obama defended his right to use executive authority and mocked Republicans for their obsession with the Affordable Care Act. Obama leavened his sharp policy message--which focused on increasing the minimum wage and expanding health care access--with moments of levity, telling the crowd at the Capital Hilton, "Well, it´s Friday. It´s after 5:00. So this is now officially happy hour with the Democratic Party." As the group laughed and applauded, the president added, "I can do that. It is an executive action. I have the authority."

During the 2008 presidential campaign, Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin warned that if Senator Barack Obama were elected president, his "indecision" and "moral equivalence" may encourage Russia´s Vladimir Putin to invade Ukraine. Palin said then: After the Russian Army invaded the nation of Georgia, Senator Obama´s reaction was one of indecision and moral equivalence, the kind of response that would only encourage Russia´s Putin to invade Ukraine next. For those comments, she was mocked by the high-brow Foreign Policy magazine and its editor Blake Hounshell, who now is one of the editors of Politico

Hours later, a train ran off the tracks. “I just had a chance to take a look at some of those spiffy new trains,” Obama said Wednesday of the expansion of Minneapolis’ Metro light rail. “They are nice and they’re energy efficient.

After keeping them under lock and key for 13 years, the National Archives and the Clinton Presidential Library on Friday released about 4,000 to 5,000 pages of documents from former President Bill Clinton´s administration. The newly-released documents give the public fresh insight into the Clinton administration and into the history of Hillary Clinton -- the former first lady, former secretary of state and potential 2016 presidential candidate. (Snip) None of the documents were related to the Whitewater or Monica Lewinsky scandals. Others were related to issues of little relative importance now, such as labor issues on the Northern Mariana Islands.

The Democratic congressman unexpectedly announced Thursday that he will not seek re-election after 23 years on Capitol Hill. Pastor, 70, is the most senior member of Arizona’s House delegation and serves on the powerful House Appropriations Committee. Unlike some Arizona Republicans he has served with, Pastor has never hesitated to use his position to secure funding for local priorities,

PHOENIX — Ending a day that cast a glaring national spotlight on Arizona, Gov. Jan Brewer, a Republican, vetoed a bill on Wednesday that would have given business owners the right to refuse service to gay men, lesbians and other people on religious grounds. Her action came amid mounting pressure from Arizona business leaders, who said the bill would be a financial disaster for the state and would harm its reputation.

If you listen to the chattering class in Washington, D.C., Hillary Clinton is a virtual certainty for the 2016 Democratic nomination, and the front runner in the next presidential race. But in private, rumors persist that the former Secretary of State may not even be capable of making it to Iowa and New Hampshire. Clinton, these skeptics often say, will not run for president again because of health concerns. These ubiquitous rumors of her health have been fueled in part by the supermarket tabloids. The National Enquirer wrote in 2012 that Clinton had brain cancer, something a spokesman dismissed then as “absolute
