    Major update on Jan.19th Capital Rally

    I have pretty much everything in place.I just received a call from Clint Didier who will be attending also and will speak on 2A issues and where we are headed.Other speakers are Shiram Hadian ,Phil Watson of the SAF ,Dave Workman,Mark Knapp (attorney),sate representative Dave Taylor,and others.
    There will be a table for kids with prize bags , balloons and other patriotic goodies.there will other participants such as WA.guns ,south sound Patriots Constitution Party Garrette Loyde King and others that supported us last year.The program will open with Kerry Hooks singing the National Anthem ,the Pledge of allegiance and a veterans tribute and prayer.This is expected to be huge and KIRO has mentioned they were going to cover this event. Attendence could be thousands .


    Jeff Hayes (orphan ) will head the security team which we still need some help with.
    As we are trying to present an extremley positive image I would ask that long guns be left at home.This is not about what we own ,but a show in mass of support for our 2nd amendment rights.State patrol has requested that if long guns are displayed that they be slung over the back ,muzzle down,no mags and bolt open.Security will also be verifying that this is the case and no one is handle ling weapons.
    Also dress appropriately please as it is a positive image of law abiding gun owners we are to portray.
    I would also ask help with sodas coffee and water .If folks could bring some coolers with this and m
    aybe pick up some of those coffee boxes from starbucks would be super.Pleas pm or e-mail me with anything you can help with.

    Clint's good people. I look forward to hearing him speak again.

    Re: long guns, they are the very issue that caused me to fill a van with Americans who care about 2A. Men is suits and other nice clothing carrying only pistols could, in my mind, be misconstrued by the ungunned sheeple in america as passive support for restrictions on our Right to keep and bear all firearms. Thus, I will be bringing my own scary black rifle for that very reason. I do not support any restrictions on my Second Amendment protected Right to protect myself and my family AS I SEE FIT. Normal folks own them, we use them, and we expect the governments in Olympia and DC to leave them alone.

    Thanks for organizing this room of cats! Lots of work but very important as well.
    Freedom can never be lost, only given away by ignorance, by choice, or at the point of a gun. Here in America we can still choose.

    well assuming there will be a TON of people parking at the capitol will fill up FAST. there are a few places to park a few blocks from the campus.

    if parking close is full, there is always downtown. just a short walk up capitol blvd. to the campus.

    theres plenty of parking around capitol lake as well. again just a short walk around the lake to the switch-back that leads up to the campus

    I'm a younger gun owner and I don't own much in the way of formal wear.

    Bingo.

    I thought this was to show that people from all over the spectrum carry and are against "gun control". So people in suits, to people in sweats, the guys wearing kilts even. We are all freedom loving citizens of all shapes, sizes, races, and dress codes.

    Was a joke, but they way some are talking around here, it almost seems like you might be turned away by "security" if your atire is not "proper."

    it just might not be a good idea to show up with a drop leg and full battle dress.

    My OC is a "drop leg" holster.

    Blue jeans and a shirt+jacket/coat

    I, personally, don't see an issue with OCing a drop leg. It's just comfortable for some people. Everyone has their own style and preferences. I personally carry OWB on my right side with a 90 degree cant in a holster that for the small of the back. Sure I have other holsters, but I don't like them. I carry in a manner that is most comfortable for me. I suggest you do the same. Drop leg, shoulder rig, OWB, IWB, concealed or open... just carry the way that make you most comfortable.

    there will always be exaggeration and sarcasm here. Take comments with a grain of salt mate and have fun.

    I think I understand what Gogo and Orphan are saying about dress and other appearance. This weekend is not like last year. A great deal of media will be watching, what has become a Nationwide event. It's going to be like a job interview this time. I keep hearing us referred to as "hillbillys" coming out of the woodwork....."gun nut" (I like that one tho) and other things from anti weapon people. We will be on the news in forty seven States. The networks that are anti 2A will slant things the way they want, just like the pro2A will do otherwise. The eyes of America will be upon us and we should look good. Yes, I know a lot of you are pretty, but it will be presence and not appearance. Look friendly, smile a lot. Have a good time. We are the "new" normal.
    "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

    I am on the fence about carrying my AR.

    This is to address an attack on the long guns mostly but at the same time it's one more thing to carry..... I will bring my sign(s) and so far not planning to bring the AR but I am still thinking about it. Maybe take the carrier assembly out and keep it in a pocket and close it up.

    It's going to be freezing out, so I'm going to have a coat on, which means an OC sidearm won't be visible anyway. Makes me actually consider the long gun, if the point is to make a statement about lawful carriers.
