It might be kinda fun!
Thought I'd share that the WA Ceasefire group is going to be putting on a March 1/13/13 1:30pm:
"A rally to remember the victims of Sandy Hook and encourage state legislators to ban semi-automatic assault weapons, sponsored by Washington Ceasefire.
Starts at Westlake Park and ends at Seattle Center."
Here is the facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/4548...88191357548034

It might be kinda fun!
Provision for free medical attendance and nursing, for clothing, for food, for housing, for the education of children, and a hundred other matters, might with equal propriety be proposed as tending to relieve the employee of mental strain and worry. --- These matters obviously lie outside the orbit of congressional power. (Railroad Retirement Board v Alton Railroad)
Hopefully we can get a group together for this. I will bring my family.
I don't mind watching the OC-Community (tea party 2.0's, who have hijacked the OC-Community) cannibalize itself. I do mind watching OC dragged through the gutter. OC is an exercise of A Right. I choose to not OC; I choose to not own firearms. I choose to leave the OC-Community to it's own self-inflicted injuries, and eventual implosion. Carry on...
Where is everyone going to meet?
Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the grey twilight that knows not victory nor defeat....Teddy Roosevelt
I'm in. I think we should get as many progun people as we can a really outnumber them. Remember the press conference at pike market for the Starbuck petition, we outnumbered them 4 to 1. Lets do it again.
I think this event would be better than Olympia, just because it could be snowing later in the month. I think a huge pro gun turn out would really send a message and I think someone like Dave Workman or Dero's or Gogo should be our media people.
Badkarma call me we need to talk about some things.
"May God have mercy upon my enemies, because I won't." George Patton
So is there any actual organization for the pro gun people going to protest the marchers? I read thru the WA Guns forum and everyone seems all over the map...
I'm in, assuming we're going, Do we have/want a rally point for before the march?
I agree the Wa-guns post is kinda wobbly...
I'm not a coward, I've just never been tested, I'd like to think that if I was I would pass,
Look at the tested and think "there but for the grace go on," I might be a coward... I'm afraid of what I might find out.
I think some organization would be good, but I'm new to the community so I'm not sure how these types of things usually go.

I am not anti Cop I am just pro Citizen.
U.S. v. Minker, 350 US 179, at page 187
"Because of what appears to be a lawful command on the surface, many citizens, because
of their respect for what only appears to be a law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their
rights, due to ignorance." (Paraphrased)
So is the plan to meet at Seattle Center since that's where there speakers and music will be? And thanks SVG for the welcome.
I hope I can go I will see what I can do, thinking of duel carry of my two pistols
Honestly meeting them at the end with a bigger group then they will have marching will make quite a statement. The Seattle Times article said they were going to have over 1000 people but I don't know. I just want to make the biggest impact we can.
I want pics and video...or it didn't happen!
Good luck guys! Wish I could be there.
"Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the people's liberty teeth (and) keystone... the rifle and the pistol are equally indispensable... more than 99% of them by their silence indicate that they are in safe and sane hands. The very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference .When firearms go, all goes, we need them every hour." -- George Washington
This is just my opinion. Look at all the free press we could get this sunday by showing up in mass at this event. All 4 tv stations will have reporters there as well as the print media. We could get alot of exposure. I feel alot more than a rally at Olympia, just because the media dosen't have to drive so far.
Also Seattle is centrally located. Everyone in the state can come here easily.
I think if we turn there rally into our rally, it will bury them, and deter there membership from comming out.
Also we could get snow for our rally, and that would make transporting people to our event hard and lower turn out, and less media coverage.
Just throwing some ideas out there.
I will be at Westlake at 115pm to walk with them and make my voice heard in a peaceful, law abiding way.
Hope to see you all there.

Here is a chance to use your 2A right to defend their 1A right, by being their security detail.
Is it reasonable to walk to this event from Coleman dock? I would walk on the ferry from Kitsap county and walk over if reasonable.
The problem with America is stupidity.
I'm not saying there should be capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?
Its about 26 blocks,, about 6 blocks up hill, about 2 miles total, not too bad.
At about the half way point you can catch the monorail and sit the rest of the way.
Next question,,, Where do you leave your car in Bremerton??
ETA,,, Its a walking demonstration and theyre starting at Westlake Park,,
that is only a mile from the dock, infact its at the monorail,, then walk to the center.

If ever a time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin.
Stand up for your Rights,, They have no authority on their own...
All power is inherent in the people,
it is their right and duty to be at all times ARMED!
When in doubt (or if the knees can't take it) cabs are pretty cheap too.
More activity on the Ceasefire site in the last week, then all last year. They are really pushing right now.
If you voted for Obama to prove you are not a racist...
what will you do now to prove you are not stupid?
