With all the talk lately about the Newtown anniversary, I'm surprised I haven't heard more about MDA's campaign activities.

My question is this, would an open carry protest of these events, or rather this organization, be in poor taste? I'm up in the air about it. I'm highly considering going to the event in Columbus.

Thoughts?

Counter protesting sounds good.

I can go to the one in Parma. Anyone else?

You be the judge
I guess OT is only bad when it ain't you doing it.
Point was/is that beauty is only on the surface. The ugliness goes much deeper. They lie, misinform, and with no hesitation exploit tragedy for their own gain; not withstanding that their goals would create the circumstances for the next one, and the next.

Sorry that you missed the obvious to others inference. Please, no more of your agenda to discredit the administration - it ill becomes you.

On the bright side we are supposed to get 1-4 inches of snow in both cities.
Turn out is likely to be frosty and dripping.

Just go stand in middle of them with a big sign for the press to see that says

"We love so many kids got killed as it helps us push our anti-gun agenda! Guns are bad!"

and act like your totally one of them

As funny as that sounds, I'm afraid I'll be going to the local park protest with a sign of some sort.

Thinking about putting the Biden quote:
Joe Biden said:
"regarding the lack of prosecutions on lying on Form 4473s, we simply don’t have the time or manpower to prosecute everybody who lies"
That, or "How does rendering people defenseless help protect them from armed aggressors?"

The signs you guys propose will not lend to any reading as some of the people out there will only glance at them. Make it shorter for the attention challenged.

"Better world = Unarmed and defenseless"
"Guns : NOT IN MY HOUSE"
"Count on the POLICE to protect you"
"Death before Defense"
"My Neighborhood is a GUN FREE ZONE"
"Don't shoot, you can have mine!"

Got it! "Unarmed victims = Happy Criminals"

Also: "'Gun control' is sexist/racist"

I was asked to go to the one in Columbus and declined due to it being in a church.
I have not, and can't imagine EVER, protesting what goes on in a church,
For one thing, it's their church and it's their right to hold whatever service and worship how they see fit.
I shall not infringe on it

The one in Parma at the park sounds like the one to be at
And I hear there's an Open Carry Meet, Greet, and eat up there that night as well,,,,

You used your mod powers to lie again. My post (#5) is still there. It says "YOU," not "administration." YOU tried to make my comment about the administration. YOU are part of the staff, a moderator. The administration is John and Mike. My comment was clearly directed at YOU and YOUR behavior specifically, not even other mods, let alone the owners and administrators of this site. I respect John and Mike.

So, are YOU going to remove the "administration" lie from your mod comment, or just delete this post and pretend that this was not pointed out to you?

Folks, whaddaya bet that #5 disappears now too--in addition to this one. That which puts the lie to what the immoderator says must be hidden from you!

The fact that you had to get the last word in on your moderator comment speaks volumes and proves what I have been saying about you all along: You use your mod powers to "win" discussions. You use your authority for personal gain. I still can't remember whether that is malfeasance or misfeasance? Do you know?

I don't know what your original post said, but are you really nitpicking between administration and moderation? They're used pretty interchangeably. Honestly though, can we move on? Take it elsewhere.
