    SECOND AMENDMENT MARCH

    Washington State





    The Second Amendment March has announced a Washington state rally in conjunction with the national event in Washington D.C.



    The Washington state march will be held Saturday, April 24 at 12pm at the Capitol in Olympia. Participants will assemble at Tivoli Fountain. For further updated information and a map of the location visit http://www.secondamendmentmarch.com/washington

    The Second Amendment March is a national event supported by satellite marches at state capitols and in cities across America. The national Second Amendment March will take place Monday, April 19, 2010 from 10am – 4pm on the grounds of the Washington Monument in Washington D.C.



    Our nation’s founders were deliberate and vigilant when drafting the Second Amendment to provide “we the people” the protections needed to defend our country, freedom, liberty and way of life. They understood far too well the danger of a disarmed population under a tyrannical government. Thomas Jefferson said it best, “The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is as a last resort to protect themselves against tyranny in government.”



    To take part in this landmark rally in support of your right to keep and bear arms and to protect and defend our Second Amendment visit http://www.secondamendmentmarch.com to R.S.V.P., volunteer or make a contribution. Or just show up! We need everyone.



    Questions or to set up an interview: Contact Liz Foley, National Media Director at media@secondamendmentmarch.com



    About Second Amendment March:

    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.

    Information about Second Amendment March is available at: http://www.secondamendmentmarch.com

    Donations made to this button will go directly to the Washington State Second Amendment March to raise funds to renting equipment and for permit modifications.

    We need $250 for renting the sound equipment and probably another $250 for incidentals. We are up to $72.50.

    I want to and intend to, but can not say for sure. Money dictates gas, family dictates free time and job dictates availability.

    248 views and only about 15 people committing to showing?? Come on folks, we can do better.

    I do know it's a work day and fully understand not being able to get away from work.

    Been there, done that, have the t-shirt....

    Hope to see a lot of you there!

    Thats it, I'm freaking setting up an eye doctor appt and an appt at the Sylvan learning center. I read this whole damn post like 10 times looking for a time. I was even joking when I mentioned 12 noon in my thread, thinking that someone would start screaming not early enough. I'm really gonna try to be there. Trying to scrounge gas money.

    I have been the State Coordinator for Washington for about 26 hours now. I stepped up and volunteered for this job after no one had done anything to organize a rally here and no one appeared willing to do so either.

    Needless to say, time is short. This morning I submitted a permit for a rally at the Capitol and will hear back hopefully by Monday or Tuesday of next week.

    I've done quite a lot of thinking about this and it looks like a rally on the 19th to coincide with the national rally in D.C. is just too close at this point. I am working diligently on securing a date thereafter, perhaps on the following Saturday. There are other state marches that are scheduled both before and after the national event.

    Right now, turnout is the most important thing. This is a participatory sport. Most don't have the luxury of having a select weekday off and are not able to or can't afford to get a work day off, especially on such short notice.

    Stay tuned. It is going to take a few days to get some preliminary matters out of the way. I am going to need help and am counting on the open carry community for assistance.

    Stay tuned.

    I think we should just show up anyway on the 19th when everyone else around the country plans to.

    I agree. At this point we should do whatever we can to meet on the Capitol steps at NOON on the 19th. I originally asked my boss for the 19th off more than 3 months ago. To try to get a SATURDAY off at this short notice would be almost impossible. I work at the Seattle airport. Saturday is one of our busiest days.

    So once again I say, I will plan on being on the Capitol steps at NOON. I can take 5 people with me in my Expedition. Need a ride? Please let me know. I will be wearing my 2A shirt, my 2A hat, and my SIG 9mm.
