    Pasadena 2A Rally - April 21st 7pm

    Our 2nd Amendment rights are constantly under fire in the Golden State. The latest attack on our rights comes from Assemblyman Anthony Portantino, who represents the Pasadena area. His bill, AB144, seeks to ban our last remaining option to carry a firearm for self-defense in California. We’ve had enough of these attacks and are going to send a strong message, with your help, to these anti-civil rights, anti-self-defense, anti-gun politicians, that we are sick and tired of them infringing on our rights!



    To show people that we still care about our 2nd Amendment rights, SBOC is putting on a 2A Rally in Portantino’s home district of Pasadena for our April Third Thursday event. We have secured a venue for our dinner which is located in old-town on Colorado Blvd. We will be announcing the exact venue the week of the event, to minimize harassment to the business owner from anti-civil rights groups like the Brady Campaign. Everyone is invited and we ask that you do your part to invite all your friends to come show your support for your 2nd Amendment rights!

    Everyone is encouraged to spend as much time in the area before and after the event, shopping at local businesses, and handing out fliers to educate people about their 2nd Amendment rights. Open carry is welcomed and encouraged but is by no means required. All supporters of our Constitutional rights are welcome and encouraged to come stand strong with us! Please share this event with all of your friends that are supporters of the US Constitution!

    Be sure and join our E-Mail list so that you can be updated on the exact venue for this event and keep up on all our other activities: http://southbayopencarry.org/membership/email-list/

    Just want to alert everyone that we have announced the venue location and that Brady's are confirmed on planning a protest to this peaceful dinner.

    We need every single one of you to make an effort to be here and send a strong message that we won't tolerate further infringements on our rights.

    This will be a dinner at 7 followed by everyone walking through the old town area shopping and educating the public about their 2nd amendment rights.

    Please distribute this flier to as many people as you can, especially your local NRA members council, tea parties, etc...

    If gas $ is an issue try to carpool with a friend!

    If dinner $ is an issue, bring a sack lunch/dinner.
    You don't have to buy dinner to come show support for 2A rights...

    Great night!!

    Lots of new UOCers. Had our own police escort following us every place we walked. Good food at the cheese cake factory.

    I also found out that the Brady group stands for "LOVE". Wow glad to hear that lol.

    Once again they left after maybe 30 min of wasted time.

    Just out of curiousity, what was with the police escort? Was it there because Brady bunch is becoming increasingly violent in their attempts to squash that what has been given to us by Our Lord and Savior?
    Im pretty sure there were people there that could have handled Brady bunch with out police

    We had un-bulleted guns! So for our protection the police decided to be our escort all night.

    Or because the main stream media cast this normal Thursday night UOC dinner meetup as a CLASH of protesters because the spin by the bradys.

    I loved having the police walking among us! Brought such a great image to our group. Showed everyone passing by how calm and law abiding we UOCers realy are.

    Good times were...

    It was a great time, and it was great meeting Ryan. We definitely received a lot more attention than I thought we would. As you said it was mostly probably do to the media hyping it up as a protest rather than an open carry dinner.

    I think the best quote of the note goes to Gene\Peter\Bob (Don't remember who said it):

    Bystander: What are you doing here?
    Gene: We're here to eat!

    I just wonder if anyone will get the play on words? I missed it at first glance and almost blew our cover.

    Great job

    I would like to have seen one on the order of this.
    Brady Campaign: Providing a safer workplace for criminals.
    A citizen may not be required to offer a ―good and substantial reason-- why he should be permitted to exercise his rights. The right‘s existence is all the reason he needs.

    This is why it is beneficial to coordinate with pro-gunners regardless of percieved conflict. While some may not wholly support UOC, there are sufficient numbers of them that sympathize to make a significant impact when the Brady Campaign insinuate themselves upon business owners and liberty loving people.
