    It was great to meet some folks from both sites and Oath Keepers today!!

    I was pretty disappointed with the overall turnout. Didn't expect to find parking after 10:30 - Must have been the weather
    Maybe the revolution will be under calm, mostly sunny skies, @ 68*F, but I doubt it...

    AFAICT, OCDO, Waguns, and of course Oath Keepers, made up the majority. Thanks guys!!


    OK

    I haven't seen any local news media coverage yet besides Dave on the Examiner. Anyone see anything yet?

    It was ignored by the media.
    "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 used a Panasonic LX-5. Each photo has all the specifics shown at the bottom (camera, focal length, aperture, ISO, etc.). Did a bit of post processing in Adobe Lightroom.

    Of course it was ignored, nothing bad happened that they can report in order to advance their anti-Rights agenda.

    I didn't find the stamp on the photos. Great work, especially liked the more panoramic-like shot (the one with the menacing-looking dome in the background).
    For dramatic shots, the one with the trooper talking to one of the guys there was nice, and the little kid looking over his parent's shoulder while holding a squirt gun is pretty dramatic. My favorite one might be the one of the OCing bearded man with his two children (son on his shoulders, daughter by his side).

    Media Coverage

    I invited 2 journalist friends of mine. I did not hear back from one and the other declined the invite. I decided I would just go and shoot the photos and do a write up. I am glad I was not the only "citizen journalist" at this event.
    Excellent shots.

    Because it was poorly conceived. We have had several rally's with no real momentum therefore we are experiencing political fatigue. Continuing to have a rally every few months in Olympia, which is not a population center in Washington will continue to demonstrate a declining and lackluster outcome.

    MSG teaches a good class about gun safety.
    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)

    While the State Capital has significant political value, I have to agree that holding it there might not be the best venue. If held in Seattle, there would be more of a population that took notice. Of course, there WOULD be counter protesters too. I can not imagine them not turning out for this. I would agree with Badkarma: holding it at West Lake or Seattle Center could prove to be a better option for political statement and impact.

    That was me and my kids.
