    Two signs? Really?

    I would assume that making two signs is so you can have one and give one to someone who doesn't have one.

    Ideas for signs, feel free to use them as you see fit.

    I've got one side of my sign designed now I need to design the other side.

    Something like, "AN ARMED CITIZEN IS A FREE CITIZEN"

    Or "SLAVES CAN'T OWN WEAPONS, SO WHY AM I TO GIVE MINE UP?"

    "EVEN SLAVES WERE GIVEN ARMS AT THE END OF THEIR SLAVERY IN ..."(I think it was Roman) I'll look it up before using it.

    "IF 'GUN FREE' ZONES REALLY WORKED, THEN WHY HAVE MOST MAJOR SHOOTING HAPPENED IN 'GUN FREE' ZONES?"

    "THE GOVERNMENT GETS IT'S POWER FROM THE PEOPLE, IF THE PEOPLE DON'T FIRST HAVE THE POWER THEN THE GOVERNMENT CAN'T HAVE THE POWER"

    "A REPUBLIC DEFENDS AN INDIVIDUAL'S RIGHTS, A DEMOCRACY ONLY DEFENDS A MOB'S RIGHTS"

    Busy month.

    I'll be there Jim.

    This is important, they are going to push hard this year they made that abundantly clear, at the ceasefire event. They don't care about logic, safety or reason.....they are just angry.

    This is truth! Most at the event would not even talk to us. Logic was lost to fear.

    A Few Ideas

    1) Last year Washington fought hard for the rights of many, why should I have to give mine up now?
    2) The 2A keeps the government in it's place!
    3) Stopping government gone bad is why the 2nd Amendment exists!
    4) I am not asking for government protection, besides it can't protect me!
    5) Do you think that government roundups can't happen in the USA? See Japanese internment camps & Katrina 2005. This is much easier when citizens are disarmed!
    6) If we were as violent and dangerous as some think - we wouldn't be here asking for our rights to be respected!

    A sign idea I've been kicking around.

    If the 2nd can be broken, what about the other 9?
    If the 2nd can be lost, what about the other 9?
    If the 2nd can be violated, what about the other 9?


    Or something like that, you get the idea. I'm not in love with the wording, but something along those lines.

    Most of us are of a MOSTLY Libertarian type mindset and that is why we don't organize so well.

    What is an assault weapon anyways?

    The answers I got where all over the board.

    I did let my mouth slip with one woman though. She told me that my gun made her 'uncomfortable'. I told her that her hoplophobia and mental deficiencies were not my problem.

    Another guy told me that we need to get weapons out of the hands of murders. I told him that I agree, we should disarm our military.

    I'm thinking Article I Section 24 of the state constitution (or the first part, anyway) isn't too long to fit on a sign:

    The right of the individual citizen to bear arms in defense of himself, or the state, shall not be impaired...

    Washington State Constitution, Article I, Section 24

    I hear you. I have broadband but the ads on examiner.com are a bit out of hand. I know they have to make a buck to keep running, but other sites have managed to monetize via ads without going quite so overboard.

    I cannot make it, but if someone wants to use my sign idea they are welcome to it. it would read:


    FIRST THEY TOOK MY GUN.
    NEXT THEY TOOK MY VOICE.
    THEN THEY TOOK WHATEVER
    THEY WANTED.....
    I aim with my eye... I shoot with my mind... I kill with my heart....
    - The Gunslinger's Litany (paraphrased)

    It has been brought to my attention that the stick figure decals on
    the back windows of vehicles are NOT pedestrian 'kill' scores, but are
    actually meant to represent family members. I'll be removing mine
    ASAP to avoid any further confusion.........

    First comes smiles, then lies. Last is gunfire.

    Depending on what browser you are using you can download add-ons that will block the scripts you encounter on sites like examiner.com.

    Google "greasemonkey for <yourbrowser>" I believe this is available for most every browser except IE.

    I am using Firefox and have incorporated this feature, no popups automatic scripts or adds.

    ETA, and I am open carrying right now.
    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?
