Americans will be here - Noon March 27 Helena - Will you ?



All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to
remain silent.
Thomas Jefferson


Spread the word and be there with many others !

Realize that the security personnel for the capitol are just covering their
backs when requesting unloaded guns
just in case something might happen from a liability point of view, that way
anything if anything happens, it is off
their back and definitely on the one or one's that might have something
happen, in short CYA, covering
their assets for liability reasons.

To: Tim - Great Job - Tim ! Thank you !The Constitution, The
Republic, and Liberty !

Encourage everyone you can too attend ! Men, Women, and Children !

Maybe get a contract big bus or vans - haul more people in the same
vehicle - more cost effective, considering the high
price of gasoline. I remember when gasoline was less than two bits (that's
25 cents) per gallon and good hay was 50 cents a bale.

This is a huge opportunity for the State of Montana to actually show that
they support the Constitution. One would hope
everyone in the State of Montana shows up ! Those that do show up are the
true supporters of the Constitution, some people
just talk and some people actually do.

We need to have a big showing ! lots of people !

Spread the word / e-mail - A Group of 30,000 Constitution supporters would
really make the news ! This is where the horse shoes hit the trail !

How many in Montana (no matter how many generations) and Yellowstone County
say
they support the Constitution and how many really do support the
Constitution, we shall see by whom shows up in Helena ?

The trip to Helena in much less of a test than the Call to Arms at the
Bridge in Concord to stop the British from taking the muskets, ball, and
powder from the town - which is why the British were coming to Concord - to
disarm the People !

Those running for office will take notice of the number of people that turn
out for this event. Be wary when they tell
you they are members of the NRA - ask them for how many years have they been
members and if they are LIFE
members. ......... More importantly ...........in MONTANA, ask if they are
members of the Montana Shooting
Sports Association (MSSA) and for how many years ! Ask if their family
members - Spouses and Children are
members of MSSA and NRA ! Do they fully support the Constitution and the
Second Amendment as it is written
not their opinion of what these words mean ?

Sure would have been nice if the vote on HealthCare and this event were on
the same day but the rascals and shysters
in WDC planned around that !


Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary
Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety !
Ben Franklin

A wise and frugal government, which shall leave men free to regulate their
own pursuits of industry and improvement,
and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned - this is
the sum of good government.
Thomas Jefferson

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't
pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for,
protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend
our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it
was once like in the United States where men were free.

Ronald Reagan


The nine most terrifying words in the English language are, 'I'm from the
government and I'm here to help.'

The fundamental NRA rules for safe gun handling are:





1. ALWAYS keep the gun pointed in a safe direction.
This is the primary rule of gun safety. A safe direction means that
the gun is pointed so that even if it were to go off it would not cause
injury or damage. The key to this rule is to control where the muzzle or
front end of the barrel is pointed at all times. Common sense dictates the
safest direction, depending on different circumstances.

2. ALWAYS keep your finger off the trigger until ready to shoot.
When holding a gun, rest your finger on the trigger guard or along the
side of the gun. Until you are actually ready to fire, do not touch the
trigger.


3. ALWAYS keep the gun unloaded until ready to use.
Whenever you pick up a gun, immediately engage the safety device if
possible, and, if the gun has a magazine, remove it before opening the
action and looking into the chamber(s) which should be clear of ammunition.
If you do not know how to open the action or inspect the chamber(s), leave
the gun alone and get help from someone who does.

A Second Amendment March will be held at the state Capitol building at noon
on March 27 as a preview to the April 19 national march at the Washington
Monument.

According to the Montana march coordinator, Tim Ravndal, people from across
the country will come to Helena to attend the rally, which supports the
constitutional right to bear arms.

Ravndal said the Made in Montana Firearms Freedom Act has led the way
nationally in a challenge to the federal government, and those gathering
want to send a message to elected officials about their right to bear arms.

"The mission of the Second Amendment March and Montana Rally 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,"
Ravndal said in a press release.

In the interest of safety, Ravndal asks those attending the rally to unload
their weapons.

He added that the use of alcohol or drugs will not be tolerated, and anyone
found intoxicated or impaired will be asked to leave immediately.

3. ALWAYS keep the gun unloaded until ready to use.

action and looking into the chamber(s) which should be clear of ammunition.
If you do not know how to open the action or inspect the chamber(s), leave
the gun alone and get help from someone who does.




When using or storing a gun, always follow these NRA rules:

a.. Know your target and what is beyond.
Be absolutely sure you have identified your target beyond any doubt.
Equally important, be aware of the area beyond your target. This means
observing your prospective area of fire before you shoot. Never fire in a
direction in which there are people or any other potential for mishap. Think
first. Shoot second.

b.. Know how to use the gun safely.
Before handling a gun, learn how it operates. Know its basic parts, how to
safely open and close the action and remove any ammunition from the gun or
magazine. Remember, a gun's mechanical safety device is never foolproof.
Nothing can ever replace safe gun handling.

c.. Be sure the gun is safe to operate.
Just like other tools, guns need regular maintenance to remain operable.
Regular cleaning and proper storage are a part of the gun's general upkeep.
If there is any question concerning a gun's ability to function, a
knowledgeable gunsmith should look at it.

d.. Use only the correct ammunition for your gun.
Only BBs, pellets, cartridges or shells designed for a particular gun can
be fired safely in that gun. Most guns have the ammunition type stamped on
the barrel. Ammunition can be identified by information printed on the box
and sometimes stamped on the cartridge. Do not shoot the gun unless you know
you have the proper ammunition.

e.. Wear eye and ear protection as appropriate.
Guns are loud and the noise can cause hearing damage. They can also emit
debris and hot gas that could cause eye injury. For these reasons, shooting
glasses and hearing protectors should be worn by shooters and spectators.

f.. Never use alcohol or over-the-counter, prescription or other drugs
before or while shooting.
Alcohol, as well as any other substance likely to impair normal mental or
physical bodily functions, must not be used before or while handling or
shooting guns.

g.. Store guns so they are not accessible to unauthorized persons.
Many factors must be considered when deciding where and how to store guns.
A person's particular situation will be a major part of the consideration.
Dozens of gun storage devices, as well as locking devices that attach
directly to the gun, are available. However, mechanical locking devices,
like the mechanical safeties built into guns, can fail and should not be
used as a substitute for safe gun handling and the observance of all gun
safety rules.

h.. Be aware that certain types of guns and many shooting activities
require additional safety precautions.

i.. Cleaning
Regular cleaning is important in order for your gun to operate correctly
and safely. Taking proper care of it will also maintain its value and extend
its life. Your gun should be cleaned every time that it is used.
A gun brought out of prolonged storage should also be cleaned before
shooting. Accumulated moisture and dirt, or solidified grease and oil, can
prevent the gun from operating properly.

Before cleaning your gun, make absolutely sure that it is unloaded. The
gun's action should be open during the cleaning process. Also, be sure that
no ammunition is present in the cleaning area.
