    Tired of gun control advocates trying to punish honest gun owners because the big city politicians can't control crime?

    Want your elected political representatives to understand how important your gun rights are to you and other people in your district?

    Want to join with hundreds of other gun rights supporters and stand together to let the people in Harrisburg to see our passion for our right to keep and bear arms?

    Then come to Harrisburg on Monday April 7, 2008 and join the "Second Amendment: Second to None" Rally starting at 9AM in the capitol rotunda!

    The gun control groups and anti-gun politicians have been relentlessly pushing anti-gun bills, including weakening statewide preemption, which prevents a patchwork of local gun regulations across the commonwealth, a one-gun-per-month gun rationing scheme, and "victimized twice" laws that would punish gun owners who fail to report a lost or stolen firearm to the police within a certain timeframe. We must show the politicians in Harrisburg that gun owners in Pennsylvania are serious about ensuring these "feel-good" proposals are not enacted into law.

    In addition to the necessity of standing up to useless gun laws that will only punish law-abiding gun owners, and not criminals, we also must push our own bills, including a "Katrina Bill," which will prevent confiscation of firearms during a state of emergency, and "Castle Doctrine" which affirms your right to defend yourself and your family against the very criminals anti-gunners are unable to control.

    The pro-gun majority in the legislature is under increasing political pressure to cave into anti-gun demands, and we know we can count on Governor Rendell to sign any gun control bill placed on his desk. Please join your fellow gun owners in standing up for our second amendment rights, and our rights under Article 1 Section 21 of the Pennsylvania Constitution, wherein it states "the right of the citizens to bear arms in defense of themselves and the state shall not be questioned." Making sure those words actually mean something requires all of us, including you.

    The time for talk is over, the time for action is April 7th, 2008. Will you take action?

    Not to take away from the board but I wanted to bump this topic to the top and also re-assert that everyone from PA should try and make this. I believe that as scary as the upcoming political situation is. We need to band together and fight even harder to maintain the rights we have.

    So please at least visit

    And let them know if you are going. Chances are that if a ride is the only thing holding you back someone will offer!

    Thank you Mike for posting this I am a little dissapointed no one has chimed in.

    I'll chime in . . . I agree with this, but Harrisburg sure is a long way from home to go and stand up for our rights . . . I won't be able to attend, but we can stand up for our rights in other ways, like OCing, and/or calling our State Reps.

    Have a great time, and thanks for standing up for all of our rights . . . Troy
