    Rally day at the capitol 4/18/13

    This event (I've been told) has gone on for over 20 years!
    Gained more people with the push for the CCW law in Missouri and last year the attendance was less than optimal.
    WE NEED A TURN OUT!


    I am happy to announce we have a date for "Rally Day" at the capitol in Jefferson City. THE PERMIT IS CONFIRMED!
    The date is April 18th 2013
    Time 10:00AM till 1:00PM
    Location - Capitol 1st Floor Rotunda
    Plan now to attend and show our legislators we support our 2nd amendment rights.
    Take the time to meet and speak with your elected officials.

    We need "many" people to attend, numbers count!
    If you won't who will? Take the day!

    Many of us gathered for lunch after the rally: http://www.riasjc.com/

    I had 12 people sign on from the Facebook post within an hour. Be there!

    In Missouri the Capitol is off limits to firearms except LEOs, legislators and their emplyees. It is all in the State Capitol. Here you will find most if not all State owned building for other purposes posted "NO firearms" allowed.

    There are 29 on Facebook who say they'll go. I hope all will do so. I'm working on an OC flag and cards to be put on a display table in the back of the room.
    That'a a good meeting place for the OCers to meet each other, easy to duck out of the room to chat also.

    I hope many will go to the lunch after as well.... Ria's is a good place and we'll have a back room.

    Dirwctions to the capitol or lunch?
    The capitol is easy enough to find, I or my local Jefferson City expert on local dining will post the directions from the capitol to Ria's. Not hard to get too.

    Here is the web page for Ria's: http://www.riasjc.com/

    Directions to Riaís from the Capitol in Jefferson City:
    From the Capitol take a right on Hwy 50. Go about 2 miles till you get to the 179 exit. Take the ramp, then head left under the highway. Keep going until the stop light at Edgewood (about a mile or less), then turn right on Edgewood. Go about a mile (actually I recall it was a bit further) and it is on the right. Canít miss it!

    I will be asking off on the 18th. Unfortunately, April has historically been an incredibly busy month for me. Nothing on the calendar as yet though, so I should be able to be there!

    Rally Day

    Mark your calender, April 18th, 1st floor rotunda, Missouri State Capitol @ 10:00AM. Last year we didn't have the hundred plus or many hundreds of years past. You want 2A rights? This is one way to help the cause.
    We'll have this banner at the back of the room:
    We will have a few hundred OC cards on the table, help yourself to a few dozen.
    Directions to the OC lunch to follow the rally, we'll have a room in Ria's in Jefferson City, short drive, 2A/OC friendly, nice place, very affordable.

    There are alot of new folks to the OC discussion site. I strongly urge evetryone who can to attend "Rally Day" at the Capitol April 18th. Meet the many people who support 2A rights, join us for lunch after the Rally at a 2A friendly place ina 2A/OC friendly town, our State Capitol, Ria's, directions will be avaiable at the Rally.
