    I'll be attending the Colorado Spring Tea Party on the 15th, OCing my 1911 and all. Anyone else going to their local Tea Parties?

    It's extremely unlikely I'll be able to make it.

    I'm pretty sure the Colorado Springs Tea Party has been changed to Acacia Park at 1200. And I'll be OC.

    I went to the one in Denver. It was really good. There were way more people than I anticipated considering the last one consisted of only 300 people. I've heard different figures, but between 3500 and 5000 people were there.

    I was there too I heard between 5000-6000 all I know is that there were a lot of people, and I stood mostly on the sidewalk at the main step area because i was packing and there were a lot of state police around the place, and I didn't want to take any chances of them seeing my weapons, it just seems to me that no matter how well they are concealed they can pick them out. So at least i'm not in jail, I was sweating a couple of times when the police got a little to close even though I have a ccw permit. Got to remember it is DENVER and it's time they change there there laws to open carry.

    I attended the COS Tea Party in Acacia Park. I arrived at 11:00 AM and the folks were still streaming in when I left about 1:30 PM. A very good turn out. It's hard to estimate numbers - but compared to a 2A Rally I attendedin Austin in 1994 where the official estimate was at least 3,000........I'd put the number at 4,000 + several "Democrats with buyer's remorse".

    The media estimate was "over 1,000" but that wasn't even close. No - I didn't OC. Didn't think it would be a very good idea. I did wear my "Homeland Security" T-shirt over the S & W. I met another "Homeland Security Volunteer"(right-wing extremist) If the Marxists can computate the total numbers across the nation - we got their attention.

    Sandcreek..just curious why you didn't feel comfortable carrying openly....

    My thought was that it's totally legal here in Colo. Springs so I did OC. I even had to locate a bathroom for my boys and walked up to five officers from CSPD to ask where I could find one. They were very polite and helpful and didn't seem to care about my OC status...although I'm sure they noticed.
