    Pro-Gun Control Law Protest Becomes a Pro-2A Rally

    Article and video.

    Hilarious!
    The First protects the Second, and the Second protects the First. Together, they protect the rest of our Bill of Rights and our United States Constitution, and help We the People protect ourselves in the spirit of our Declaration of Independence.

    Rally For Gun Background Checks Quickly Becomes Pro-Gun Event

    "Luczyk was one of a half dozen members of the group Mayors Against Illegal Guns who hosted the rally in the Arena District on Friday. But when Luczyk started her speech by telling the crowd that former President Ronald Reagan supported background checks, she was drowned out by shouts of "Germany 1933" and "Hitler."

    About 50 guns-rights supporters were on hand, some with rifles over their shoulders and others with handguns in hip holsters.

    John R. Lott, Jr. says "Another Bloomberg anti-gun rally, another one with no one but the ones on the Bloomberg paid bus showing up."

    The video puts the lie to this statement from the article. One person spoke of what happened in Germany in 1933 when Hitler took over. There weren't "shouts of 'Germany 1933' and 'Hitler.'"

    As an aside, not intended to alter the direction of the thread, but we should stop talking of Hitler as a gun-banner. The gun bans were in place when Hitler took over. It is better argued that those bans allowed the Nazis to do what they did. The Nazis actually relaxed gun laws (except for Jews, commies, etc.)

    Estimates from our guys put our numbers at about 100. One member here did a count and got 93 (IIRC). So the story also underplayed its key point.

    It wasn't just the NRA and Buckeye Firearms. OCDO had a lot to do with getting folks out there. Did you notice the number of properly holstered handguns? I would have been there, but was scheduled to work. I think Bloomberg has my schedule and made sure I couldn't attend either Columbus rally or the one in Cincy.

    I think they are afraid of being outnumbered at these things and don't firm up plans until the last minute. They also change them a lot. It seems to be having more of an effect on their supporters, who must be far less motivated to keep up with the scheduling shenanigans than those who are passionate about Liberty.

    Both times in Columbus and the one time in Cincy, we have rallied better than they did. This ain't NY, Bloomberg. We ain't gonna just roll over and allow you to take our sugary drinks and guns.

    I thought the Nazi's introduced new controls in addition to the "sporting purposes" language later adopted by the GCA of 1968 in the USSA. They also confiscated guns.
    “If the natural tendencies of mankind are so bad that it is not safe to permit people to be free, how is it that the tendencies of these organizers are always good? Do not the legislators and their appointed agents also belong to the human race? Or do they believe that they themselves are made of a finer clay than the rest of mankind? ” -Bastiat

    I don't "need" to openly carry a handgun or own an "assault weapon" any more than Rosa Parks needed a seat on the bus.
