    Protesters at NRA HQ - June 20-21

    A group from MD Shooters is planning on attending. Maybe VCDL as well?

    VCDL has elected to let the NRA handle any response themselves and thereby minimize the size of what should be a non-event. Such protests generally/normally draw very few antis - their numbers continue to dwindle. They are but a gnat in the ointment - and a dead gnat at that.

    I had to put on my glasses to see that dead gnat in the ointment. There wasn't enough meat to make a decent sandwich.

    and swin, your thoughts if someone purposely insulted your religious perception of Lent or other high religious holiday?

    and we all wonder about the exhibited intolerance of others.

    don't blame the messenger. The demonstration isn't about religion, it's about the anti gun stance of the participants. I take it you won't be attending?

    i guess only one group has 1A rights.

    sure

    ETA-the participants for our side are showing up as mourners, not being confrontational.

    or is that insulting too?

    sorry you seem to be that insensitive and obtuse on what you misquoted from your cites and posted

    Swin's quote: A Ramadan meal and "special ceremony" between 8pm and 9am. unquote

    quote: ...Iftar Ramadan meal at sundown... unquote FYI today's sunset for Fairfax VA is 2237L

    quote: a special ceremony from 2:02am-5:00am, ... unquote

    rule of thumb...if you can see the eye of a needle it is daylight and the fast & prayer begins and when you can't see the eye the sun has finally set and you may humbly eat.

    as an aside, please volunteer to cease consuming food, drinking liquids, smoking, and engaging in sexual relations, between dawn and darkness (past astro twilight) for 30 days for your religion.

    ipse

    added: not about religion, ya obtuse: quoting your cites: Muslim friends facing increased Islamophobia & We will be joined by representatives of Muslim groups, Iftar Ramadan meal at sundown unquote

    1st works only if you do not misconstrue the original message to suit your emotionalized purposes.

    I won't call ya old with that reference .... but ya ain't young !

    At least your brain cells seem to still be working, that's a good thing.


    Also, is the protest that the OP speaks of a counter-protest? Of these:
    http://wtop.com/fairfax-county/2016/...ntrol/slide/1/

    Or one to protest pro-anti legislation being considered by the NRA ?

    I recently rescinded membership of me being in a pro-gun organization due to their support of anti-legislation. A local group.

    sorry no. i was sent the info from someone who saw it on FB. that's all I know except some people on a MD forum are planning a vigil as mourners. I am hearing the Pink Pistols might join as well.

    freedom runs both ways.

    I am told that the VCDL FB page has over 100 people going.

    So much for Ramadan.

    first and foremost...accept accountability you, in fact, did not quote what was publicized. period!

    that you do not care is obviously and painfully apparent!!

    and the freedom you tout and so dearly believe in running both ways is good except when it bites you in the backside...
