The lamestream media told you:
The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:
A so-called Million Gun March on Phoenix is set for Monday, April 19 at noon at the state capitol.
Arizona is going to have its own "Second Amendment March" to coordinate with the massive gun-rights rally expected in Washington D.C. http://www.secondamendmentmarch.com
What I hear is that a lot of people are planning to take their safely holstered sidearms out for a walk... to the state capital from High Noon to 2 p.m. No one is organizing this thing, it's pure grass roots, no speechifying, no sound stage, just brown bag lunches on the lawn. Lots of lunches on the lawn. With beach blankets and folding chairs. And signs. And pitchforks.
In Arizona, with all the firearm freedoms we enjoy, it'll be more like a celebration of our rights* and "the shot heard 'round the world" than a protest rally against the evil elitist anti-rights bottom-feeding bigots clustered in D.C. The slaughter of Colonists at the town green in Lexington and the battle later that day at Concord occurred on April 19, 1775.
In fact, local politicians who will be in session during this picnic are not particularly invited unless they are willing to bow and scrape before we the sovereigns, and kiss our rings, at least that's what I hear. Actually, we do have some excellent very pro-rights politicians in this state, and some will likely show their faces and press the flesh. Word recently arrived that they may set up a mic and PA system.
I plan to just descend on the capital and bring a hero sandwich, to hearken back to America's heroes past and present (plus, I really like hero sandwiches even though they're fattening). Will I see you there? This is no time to sit on the sidelines.
I'll also bring some homemade signs, something about our gun rights, just like most other people will do. And my pitchfork.
By the time people swing by in Phoenix (1700 W. Washington, just west of Wesley Bolin Plaza), the D.C. event will be nearly over due to the time difference. So we'll know how well that went as long as we get our info anywhere but the lamestream "news" that suppresses such things. (The 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. east coast rally is 7 a.m. - 1 p.m. local time here.)
Musician and libertarian Sharlene Holt of Musicians For Freedom <firstname.lastname@example.org> is in touch with Skip Coryell, who's organizing the D.C. event, and she might have more information if you need it. But if you're an average American, you should be able to figure this all out on your own, it's not terribly complicated. What a great chance to show where we stand, and use our First Amendment right to assemble to honor our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.
If you didn't already get this notice, you're not on my AZ Only list, so you should send me a note and I'll add you.
