    I was unable to attend the march due to work, since Im an accountant and April 15th is a few days away I cannot leave work.

    Please for those of us who were unable to attend post any comments on the march, how the speakers' speeches were,and any stories about the event.

    Main questiondid anyone try to open carry? I know you were not allowed I was just curoious if anyone got arrested.

    Thank you for all who could attend and support our 2nd Amendment Rights. Just wish I could have been there right by your side.

    Carry On,

    Mike

    Same here, I was unable to attend. I too am curious on how everything went. So far I found no coverage on CT television or web news sites.

    It was pretty darn good! The North side of the building was shaded and it was windy but I'd guess about 150 or so patriots came out and participated. We had some great speakers, legislative and senate candidates as well as my personal favorite for Attorney General.

    There was a fairly large police presence, not sure what they expected but they didn't have to work hard.

    I managed to video tape a bunch of it and after I get back from vacation I'll put some snippets up on the CCDL youtube channel as well as look into another video hosting outfit that lets you store more than 10 mins worth at a time.

    I couldn't get out of work in time, had to teach a library class. I'm glad it worked out.

    I was told they were more concerned with people who opposed our views trying to stir up trouble.

    Yes the lunatic Brady fringe.. probably too cold for them to show up, what with the SUN exposure, and the WIND!! think of the children...

    It was a good day for sure.

    I was there from 1:30 until the break around 3:00 and did not see any Brady style folks.

    Lots of cops, but thats standard procedure for any gathering. Most were pretty relaxed.

    Hey Rich,
    The CCDL Facebook page should have small video clips of 5 speakers from the Hartford March. If you click on the video to start on the facebook side, then "right click" on the video you can "Watch on Youtube" which will bring you to YouTube user PALINSMITH's video collection which includes these videos.

    I see them now. I guess I was looking for something related to 'Second Amendment March' in the titles. I should have seen and recognized the date 'April 10th'.

    Thanks for the links.

    I have the entire set of speakers minus a small bit of Craig where I ran out of tape and had to swap. I'm swamped with work after a weeks vacation but I'll get to moving the video from tape to disk and from disk to web when I can.
