    National OC rally?

    Is there any talk of any sort of national OC rally? I could think of a few options:

    1) Meet somewhere near Washington DC, where we could OC.
    2) Have several locations throughout the US, but all meet up on the same day. Perhaps every state capitol at 11am CST on June 1st 2012.

    I think getting more people out to OC and to normalize it might help the cause. Thoughts?

    Yes, we should rally on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial and all over the DC mall with our loaded holstered pistols. Oh wait...dang it...no freedom there?!?! Maybe Virginia or coordinated rallies across the country in the state capitals like you suggested. This is probably the best option as it would minimize travel.

    Oh, jeeze, not this again!

    Was it just last year, or was it 2 years ago? And how did it turn out? Pretty much

    The search feature should be used. Please!

    stay safe.

    What, the rally in Virginia didn't go well? I don't remember anything negative happening.

    Also, if you are speaking of the April 19th 2010 rally that was to protest Obama and Obamacare. I am speaking of a rally ONLY to support 2A rights, and to make the public in every state, aware of what the CC and OC laws are.

    If you are speaking of another rally that went poorly please inform me.

    I guess we should just give up then. I'm sure the Logistics of DDay, the Civil War, the Revolutionary War, and anything monumental and important were easy to take care of. We should only do things that are easy? Then why even fight for the 2A? It's easier to just roll over and give up.

    Nevermind my suggestion.

    Ok then...I guess you earned the right to take point on this; grab it & run with it, best of luck.

    And it's not too hot.

    I am looking into it. My thought is to have a rally at each state capitol, or at two or three ideally located cities in each state. Have the rallies all start at the same time (2pm EST, 1pm CST, Noon MST, and 11am EST) to have everyone participating together. States where OC is legal would have OCers. States with CC but not OC could have CCers with signs about OC. Of course in my home state of IL we would just have signs.

    Anyway, I am hoping to get good media attention and to educate the public.
