    Skip Coyrell, the founder of the March, has asked me to be the Michigan Coordinator for the Lansing March next April. This is a great opportunity for MOC to shine and show our support of our gun and personal rights.

    I want MOCto bethe driving force in organizing the Michigan March next April in cooperation with the National March in DC. To accomplish this goal I will need a great deal of help at the grass-roots level both from members and the officers of MOC. Together we can make a difference.

    We need volunteers to help with theplanning of the state march. We need people to organize Second Amendment Town Hall meetings in their communities as well as help plan the State Capitol March.

    All they have to do is click on the link and fill in the info.

    If you have any questions about planning a town Hall meeting PM me.

    Thanks You All.
    Brian Jeffs, President MOC

    The mission of the Second Amendment March is to galvanize the courage and resolve of Americans; to petition our elected officials against establishing anti-gun legislation; and to remind America that the Second Amendment is necessary to maintain our right to self defense.
    It is the one right that protects
    all others.


    We will accomplish our mission by a peaceful march in Washington DC, the United States Capitol, supported by satellite marches to State Capitols and smaller cities all across America.

    Will you be coordinatingthe leaders of other major Michigan gun owner organizations/internet fora, on behalf of Skip, to coordinate their messages and efforts related to this event? Just curious.

    Count me in, if I still live in Michigan next year. Between now and then, let me know what I can do to help.
    Answer every question about open carry in Michigan you ever had with one convenient and free book- http://libertyisforeveryone.com/open-carry-resources/

    The complete and utter truth can be challenged from every direction and it will always hold up. Accordingly there are few greater displays of illegitimacy than to attempt to impede free thought and communication.

    Perhaps. I think MCRGO's is working with Skip on planning the National DC march. I'm not sure whatMGO's role is.

    I really want to volunteer and do anything i can for the 2A March. If you have any ideas on how I might be able to contribute here at home please let me know. However, I may be limited on the day of as it is my plan right now to attend Washington DC for the March. I've never been, so I'm planning on taking some of my income tax refund next year and getting there somehow. I think the March is an excellent reason to finally go there. I'm hoping to get my Dad, brother, daughter, and great uncle to come with. I am a photographer so even if it's just me and my camera, as long as I have the means, I'm going. I can still help out here in Michigan country though. I've already been spreading the word everywhere.

    If for any reason I can't do DC I will be in Lansing without fail.

    Please think about having a town hall meeting in your area. You would get support from MOC and the 2A March. I would like to see at leastten (10)meetings in each of the MOC regions. See Map below. These can be as small as 20 people or as large as 500.



    1) Find a place, and check into availability and cost. Free is best. Many towns have Legions, VFW's or township halls, Libraries, etc., that are available for group meetings. Gun show would be another great place for these meetings.

    2) Set the time and day for the event.

    3) Work with the MI coordinator in planning and media coverage. We can present a power point presentation and answer questionsabout the march.

    4) Pat yourself on the back for standing up for your rights and making your town, State and Country a better place.

    depending on date/time/location, if there is an expected large turnout and a PA is needed (for any MOC event/lecture/meeting, etc), let me know.

    HERE IS THE GUIDELINES FOR PLANNING A TOWN MEETING. Copy and printout. And get planning one for your area today.


    Dear Patriot and Organizer,

    Thanks you for your interest and for your willingness to organize a 2A Town Hall meeting. We appreciate your support. You have taken a big step in helping to maintain freedom and the right to keep and bear arms during these especially unsettling and turbulent times. We can’t thank you enough. Please follow the attached instructions in organizing your Second Amendment Town Hall meeting.


    The mission of the Second Amendment March is to galvanize the courage and resolve of Americans; to petition our elected officials against establishing anti-gun legislation; and to remind America that the Second Amendment is necessary to maintain our right to self defense.[/i]

    Second Amendment March time line:

    • April 2008 through February 2010 we will hold Second Amendment Town Hall Meetings all across America
    • March 2010 we will hold State Capitol marches in as many states as possible.
    • April 19th 2010 we will march on Washington DC
    Town Hall meetings are the heart and soul of the Second Amendment March. They help us build the foundation and grassroots support needed to fund and populate the State Capitol and DC marches. Without them we could not accomplish our mission. No Town Hall meeting is too small or too big.

    There’s nothing magical about organizing a town hall meeting. It takes hard work performed in the right sequence. In order to make it easier for you, please follow the steps and guidelines below as you plan and organize your event. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us at info@secondamendmentmarch.com.

    Skip Coryell
    Founder, Second Amendment March
    http://www.secondamendmentmarch.com

    How to Organize a Second Amendment Town Hall Meeting
    Organize by the Numbers!


    1. Register your town hall meeting.[/b]

    This is done simply by emailing us at:

    info@secondamendmentmarch.com

    Once you are registered, we will call you personally to offer our thanks and guidance. We will then send you a planning packet complete with flyers, posters, and business cards, and 2A merchandise for promoting and fundraising purposes.

    2. Find a place to hold the meeting. [/b]

    This can be big or it can be small. The choice is up to you. It can be in an arena with 10,000 people or in your neighbor’s barn with 25 of your neighbors. The important thing is that you band together as Americans and network and plan to preserve your Second Amendment Rights. Some ideas for venue include but are not limited to:

    • Town Halls
    • VFW Halls
    • Churches
    • Shooting Clubs
    • Conservation Clubs
    • Union Halls
    • Banquet Halls
    • Parks
    • Large private homes
    3. Publicize the event. [/b]

    There are many things you can do to publicize and promote your town hall meeting. Here are some examples:


    • Put an ad in your local newspaper
    • Distribute flyers (We can help with design and printing.)
      • Supermarkets
      • Place of employment
      • Schools (preferably colleges)
      • Social Clubs
    • Go on the radio or television! Don’t be shy! (If you can set up an interview but do not wish to go on the air contact us at info@secondamendmentmarch.com and we will provide someone from our staff.)
    • Post the event on firearms-friendly bulletin boards like:
    Word of mouth. Tell all your friends and everyone you meet. Ask them to help and give them some flyers, too!

    • Invite other organizations in your community to attend and to help promote the 2A March.
    • 2A march will promote the event by placing it on our website and by announcing it in our weekly newsletter. We will also provide you with printed flyers for your event.
    4. Provide the logistics.[/b]

    This will vary depending on the venue and size of the meeting. Please make sure people have what they need to attend and enjoy themselves. (E.g., bathroom facilities, shelter from the elements, seating, etc.).

    Please be aware that many public venues require a permit, and there may be fees and applications involved. For example, some municipalities require a permit and porta-potties for events beyond a certain number of anticipated attendees. Expect to fill out forms and adhere to all government regulations regarding the location you seek

    If someone is speaking or giving a presentation, you may need a stage, sound system, audio visual equipment, computers, projectors, etc. Plan ahead.

    NOTE: If your venue is large enough the Founder of Second Amendment March or another approved professional speaker may fly to your event to speak or render other support as necessary. (If a professional speaker is not available Second Amendment March will provide you with a video or PowerPoint presentation to assist.)

    5. During the event.[/b]

    It is important that you document the event either with still photos or video. The Second Amendment March will use this on our website and in other publications to promote future meetings and to help encourage others to follow your example.

    6. Fundraising.[/b]

    Make sure there is a secure Second Amendment March donation jar readily accessible to the people. Their generosity will help defray the cost of your event. Have a table set up with 2A March information and merchandise. You may also have a local non-profit organize a 50/50 raffle or other lawful fund-raising activity. All net proceeds will go towards funding the Second Amendment March. (Be sure to follow all state, local and federal guidelines for anything you do associated with the 2A march.)

    Second Amendment March will also send you a supply of 2A March merchandise for you to sell at the event. All proceeds go towards expenses and the 2A March.

    NOTE: We are in the process of gaining our non-profit status. It will be announced in a coming newsletter.

    7. After the event.[/b]

    • Provide for clean up by ensuring that people clean up the mess and return the area to its original state.
    • Send in your article, photos and video to info@secondamendmentmarch.com.
    • Once you have computed the cost of your event, make sure the bills are paid.
    Then mail in the net profit along with receipts to: (Direct all financial questions to the 2A March Treasurer, Nichole Ridner at nichole.ridner@secondamendmentmarch.com.)

    Second Amendment March[/b]

    PO Box[/b] 232[/b][/b]
    Delton MI 49046-0232[/b]
    Or, you can use the “Donate” button on http://www.secondamendmentmarch.com and email the receipts.

    That’s all there is to it! But if you have special questions, please contact us at info@secondamendmentmarch.com.

    I am taking a personal day and will be there likely with Mosnar87 if he is free.
    Anything I post may be my opinion and not the law... you are responsible to do your own verification.

    Blackstone (1753-1765) maintains that "the law holds that it is better that ten guilty persons escape than that one innocent suffer."
