    WTF?

    How can anyone with an IQat or in excess75 take this ass-clown seriously?
    They plan on boycotting firearm retailers because of what? and why?

    How many of these firearms that were usedduring the commission of a crime were legally purchased by the person using them?

    Should we all get together and boycott stationery retailersbecause we may have spelled a word wrong while using a pen or pencil? it is at the same level of the Rev's thinking.

    My point being;
    Blaming murderous behavior by violent uneducated, low-IQ individuals on a firearm is absolutely moronic! But when you are pandering to people with intelligence levels which are sub-moronic, I guess it works.

    I have typed 5-6 different paragraphs that I have also deleted because I am left speechless by this clowns intentions and reasons for them.
    Maybe he needs to re-examine the situation a little more and place the blame where the blame resides. It is not the inanimate object causing problems, it is the criminal that possesses that inanimate object.

    Al Sharpton a fool.... need I say more? The man seems to have no understanding of history and even why gun control was originally passed.
    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."

    So why is al protesting at the gun shop ?

    he seems to be protesting in area's that make no sense, unless i am to tired and missed something on his web site ?

    He's protesting at a funeral parlor also?

    And what the f--k is he even protesting about, is his donations running low because of the recession that we are in ?


    Cabman i will go if i am not working etc.. Battle creek

    Has anyone contacted the shop itself? I would like to know what they want. If they would like us to be there to counter protest, I will do what I have to to make it.

    And assuming theywant us there, I suggest MOC sends out press releases declaring an intention to have members show up in counter protest.


    Even if the shop doesn't want us there, we could stand around outside while they are there. Maybe even conduct a litter clean up or something. :celebrate

    I have contacted Mark Cortis about this. For those who don't know, he's the non government worker on the Oakland County Gun Board, and he's also a 20 year CPLteacher, as well as a Pastor.

    He intends to show up in dressed up in his Pastor gear, and he hopes to be able to answer reporters questions if any show up. He also wants to bring other CPL teachers he works with.

    Make a sign in agreement. "Gun Owners Against Criminals With Guns!"

    See, they're against ALL guns. We're against bad guys with guns.

    That's the main difference.

    There protecting, anything that will make them money, als got to be in the spot light some where, that way the donations keep rolling in to help support his mission (to fill his bank account) i mean to justify his paycheck.

    If he would put as much effort into really helping people, and not the cause of the moment, than he would be an asset to the human race......




    How about a sign sayingEnforce the laws we have

    A sign that simply states "GUNS SAVE LIVES"

    Or "Gun Control is MURDER"

    This was just posted on MGO:

    I just spoke to Bill, he is coordinating this event with Sharpton's people. Not sure if Al is going to show up.

    The message is about gun violence and how to stop it. Such as CPL classes and gun safety courses.

    He said at anytime, they turn this press conference into an anti gun protest, he will throw them out. The contact lady is to meet with him tomorrow at 9am. If any member of the executive committee wants to join them, he said they are welcome. Just call him before hand. @ (248 ) 799-7300.

    This is supposed to be a gun safety press conference, not an anti violence protest. If you want to open carry, please be aware that there is a sign on the door that all guns must be covered when in the building.
    I don't know if Bill will enforce it that day. He wants to give the image that we who choose to carry are responsible gun owners and do not promote gun violence. We are not a bunch of rednecks that want to shoot at anything that moves.

    I agree with him that, this would be a great forum to get the point across about personal responsibility and gun ownership. If after the meeting tomorrow, Bill feels like it might be an ambush, he will not let them in and will close the doors for the day.

    I'm going up there in a few minutes... will report back.

    I just spoke with a lady at the gun shop and "she said"

    (that the owner went down to the police station, and when he got back, he said that the rally won't be happening here)

    So i don't know ??


    ***Could somebody confirm this, that knows the owner***

    Important update!!!

    I called the person organizing the rally and pretended I wanted to go so I could get some information...

    The protest WILL NOT TAKE PLACE AT ACTION IMPACT

    The protest WILL BE TAKING PLACE AT:

    RIB RACK RESTAURANT
    Southfield Road between 11 and 12 Mile
    28601 Southfield Road, Lathrup Village, MI 48033

    ON

    November 23rd

    AT

    2:00pm


    http://www.oaklandcountynan.com

    Ribs for lunch on Monday anyone?

    EDIT: To answer the question about what is being protested, there was a botched robbery there where a young female manager was shot and killed. So yes, I think perhaps a 'guns save lives' sign may be appropriate.

    We should think very carefully about how we'll protest their protest. By keeping things probably quiet and low key in a restaurant, they'll be more able to try to make us look like bullies for being publicly against them.

    That is why I suggest we stay away from them, provided they don't do anything more than eat and talk. Going in there with them would be no more polite than them barging in on us when we're having a fall or winter dine in. If they had a Lansing rally in front of the capitol building, or something similarly intensive, it would be different. The only reason I even think this is worth taking action on is that it's being sponsored by Al Sharpton.

    Instead of being there near them, maybe we could hold up signs in front of the shop or something and send out press releases about why we're doing it?

    Zigziggityzoo said a great line, which I seem to remember was that we're a non confrontational group. I don't think it's always true, but it should be here.

    OK here's the plan. Mark Cortis of Wild West Academy knows the owners of Action Impact...

    so what we're going to do is, even though the Sharpton protest is not at the gun shop, the counter protest, that is, us with pro-gun signs and such, are going to meet at Action Impact on 8 mile at 11am tomorrow morning.

    This is Monday November 23rd at 11am, bring a sign if you wish but keep it clean, we want to have a positive image.

    let me know fast if this is going to be a problem

    This was the plan when I told EC to post this, but a few things have changed. My apologies to everyone for the confusion. I have been very busy all day working, and have been playing phone tag with EC and Mark.

    Because of the fact that it doesn't appear they are doing a serious protest, and because of the fact we don't have planned press coverage, because of the fact that I don't believe we've even got Action Impact to say they want us there, and because of the fact that Mark has other things to do that are fairly important, I told Mark he should probably go do what he needs to do in the morning before he goes and teaches his class. He told me he's had to teach 13 days out of the past 2 weeks. :what:

    All that said, I am still up for doing whatever you guys want. One thing I do think we could do is go and film an interview with Action Impact, discussing the protest, and put it on our youtube channel.
