    WarOnGuns is calling for a national "buy a box of ammo" day on Aug. 28th to counter-protest the Bradys call for a National Protest. Full details can be found at this link.

    I'm going to try and start a blog swarm at WarOnGuns to get gun owners to buy a box of ammo on Aug 28--be nice if gun stores would offer some sort of nominal discount or a door prize (no purchase necessary to enter, just to keep things legal) or some such on that day to encourage this--Tuesdays may typically be slow days anyway, so this would get people in their stores and probably work out to their profit. It'd be nice unintended consequences for the Bradys if we could demonstrate a few percentage points of sales increases on that day because of this.


    I know I'll be stopping at my local WallyWorld to buy a few boxes! I hope I can count on your to do the same.

    Oh what better reason to buy 2,3,4 boxes of .223 for the Black rifle. :celebrate

    Better than ammo, I am gonna buy a nice nasty looking AR Upper.

    I already bought my "Jesse Jackson" gun, as can be seen in the other thread titled as such; if I had waited I may have not been able to grab the deal I got. I did buy it in August...so the spirit is still there....

    I will however, stock up on some .45, 9mm, and maybe even some .30-30 on the 28th......it would be cool if we had flyers or cards or something to hand out on that day explaining why we are buying ammo and firearms that day in particular to excercise our 2A rights......

    I seem to be spending half my time in court these days (as a witness, not a defendant - no worries), but I'll try to pay off my layaway piece on the 28th if I can. Thanks, Jesse, you are truly a greatmotivational speaker.

    I needed a reason to spend some more money on ammo. This will work!

    I unfortunately have run out of room. I guess I will have to shoot a bunch so I will have the room. :celebrate

    Boy the 28th is going to be a busy day... Now my schedule looks like:


    1-Buy Ammo at Wal-Mart...

    2-Use Ammo at Bob's...

    3-Finish shooting in time to make the Norfolk City Council meeting....

    I've already scheduled myself to be off work that day... This is turning into a holiday...

    Well, I'm getting that RIA 1911Tac, so I'll need some .45ACP to go with it! :celebrate
    Why open carry? Because 1911 > 911.

    Just another good excuse to get some ammo.

    I'm all for stickin' it to the ilinformed bradyites even if all it does is make me feel better.

    I will probably buy a box to support the cause...

    BTW, (I am too lazy to start a new thread for this question) is the Brady Campaign against ALL guns, like airsoft, paintball, taser, and so forth, I haven't really put the effort in to research this, as I really don't care what the brady campaign thinks on most issues -- just looking for a quick yes/no.

    I just can never get a handle on how ridiculous these people are! I am and I think I can speak for a lot of people when I say that I am too, against gun violence -- NOT SELF DEFENSE!

    I guess that is a pretty encompassing statement, they would probably be against water pistols if someone got wet that didn't want to be :?

    It's sickening to watch Sarah Brady parade her husband in front of the media... The insane part of it all is that people like John Hinckley Jr are a big part of the reason that we need the right to protect ourselves... Sarah Brady has national TV coverage of an attack on her husband's boss and still doesn't think that average citizens should be allowed to defend themselves against such insane attackers... Only those wealthy enough to afford protective guard details should be entitled to protection...
