    Unfortunately "Town Hall" is; a private, gun hating, meeting facility.

    What would you recommend that our response be?
    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.

    "Our" response? What you do is up to you. I would attend to listen to what they're saying and carry concealed. I would not recommend open carrying to an anti gun event, being asked to leave is guaranteed and it will only look bad in the media.

    If you paid attention the OP states the event was to take place on private property.

    I believe that you (emn) were at that rally too. I was there, carried a banner in the parade and even spoke to you briefly. As my feeble old mind remembers, you were armed and engaged a few others in conversation. Your argument is not valid.
    "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

    1. You said you would not recommend open carrying to AN anti gun event. You did not specify the exact event in the OP.

    2. You said being asked to leave is guaranteed. We were not asked to leave at the event we were openly carrying at, and they couldn't legally force us to leave because the event we attended was on public property.

    3. You said it will only look bad in the media. I beg to differ. Your behavior can be such that the media will have to lie to make you look bad. (Not that they won't, but they didn't at the event we attended.)

    I apologize for not being more specific in my first response.
    I was referring the to the private property event, i would OC at a public place event. At private property rented for an anti gun event open carry is a bad idea.

    I intended to refer to a private event as was being discussed, you have my apologies for snapping at you with that response though.

    I, for one, understood what you were saying.

    This morning, I was thinking about that show "Longmire" (which is a fantastic show, by the way), and remembered the part in the first episode where he says a flock of ravens is called an "unkindness" (properly termed the "collective noun"). For some reason, my mind wandered to anti-gun folks and their enthusiasm to use the force of the state to get their way. I decided that a group of progressives should be known as a "violence".

    A violence of progressives.

    A boondoggle of progressives is more apt, IMO.

    Gross hypocrisy: Brady Campaign leader talks gun control with armed security

    Monday evening’s Town Hall Seattle forum featuring top local and national spokesmen for gun control might better have been a discussion about world-class hypocrisy, since a sign on the door advised that guns were prohibited, and the anti-gunners were protected by armed security.
