    Wear orange on the Second??

    http://www.gunsamerica.com/blog/37824/

    With National Gun Violence Awareness Day just around the corner on June 2, celebrities, TV networks, record labels, magazines and 60 U.S. mayors are preparing to wear orange to show their support for the first annual event sponsored Everytown for Gun Safety.
    Among those who will be participating include, Julianne Moore, Russell Simmons, Sarah Silverman, Michael Stipe, Patti Smith, Aasif Mandvi, Alyssa Milano, Padma Lakshmi, John Hodgman, Amanda Peet, Perez Hilton, Melissa Joan Hart, Tiffani Thiessen, Tunde Adebimpe of TV On The Radio, Rise Against, Mario Batali, Anti-Flag, Nigel Barker, Grace Weber, Jon Foreman, Judith Hill, Amber Coffman of Dirty Projectors, Tyler Glenn of Neon Trees and Thomas Roberts of MSNBC


    I have seen very little about this in the media. Is it because I just don't go to whiner sites? Is it because people are beginning to understand that the gun itself does no harm?
    I think I may wear orange tomorrow, and a gun. A big pistol that could be seen beyond the brightness of the orange would do.

    The "list" will give you the opportunity to support these people monetarily or to spend your hard earned dollars elsewhere.

    What narrow perceptions they have!

    To me, orange is first the color of Catholic Ireland, kinda the opposite of wearing Protestant green on Catholic Saint Patrick's Day. Or maybe SC's Clemson U.

    I wore orange today. Tomorrow I am wearing black and khaki and, in honor of gun violence awareness, I am going to OC all day so that others can see it is their right to be armed to defend themselves against those who would do violence against them with a gun or other weapon.

    Although I think everyone is aware of gun violence. Just too many don't care about gun violence unless certain demographics are involved. The same people who rioted in Ferguson are mute as to the significantly increased violence in urban areas across the country this spring. But then, that violence doesn't fit the agenda and doesn't further the agenda to register or disarm law abiding citizens.

    deep, i believe the kind citizens in Baltimore are wondering about the last month's spike in homicides but will be oblivious to the thought of taking their protection into their own realm of SD by OC/CC'g a firearm. unfortunately, it won't manifest itself as LAC but rather the nice BPD will step in and play hero defeating the nasty bad guys...oh if a couple of the bad guys die under questionable circumstances, chief will step out and hypothetical tell the Baltimore citizens:

    ".. you can't have it both ways and sorry so and so 'accidentally' died while in our care or during our investigation...get over it...crap happens when we risk our lives protecting you good citizens!"

    and the cycle begins once again.

    Don't feel too bad about this mix up, if you are not Irish it wouldn't matter any more than the difference between Jameson and Bushmill whiskey.

    Oh it is the biggest mix-up that you have ever seen
    My father he was orange and me mother she was green

    Oh my father was an Ulsterman, proud Protestant was he
    Me mother was a Catholic girl, from County Cork was she
    They were married in two churches, lived happily enough
    Until the day that I was born and things got rather tough

    Oh it is the biggest mix-up that you have ever seen
    My father he was orange and me mother she was green

    Baptized by father Riley, I was rushed away by car
    To be made a little Orangeman, my father's shining star
    I was christened David Anthony, but still in spite of that
    To my father I was William while me mother called me Pat.

    I went by the county government complex (how nice of them to confine it to one small area) today. Apparently the residents of the County Jail and both Deputies babysitting them all wanted me to be aware of gun violence. I was more aware that they were walking in the middle of the street, blocking traffic, instead of using the perfectly good sidewalk.

    stay safe.
