‘Gun Appreciation Day’ to be held 48 hours before Obama’s inauguration

Just two days before Obama’s inauguration, concerned gun owners nationwide are banding together to send a message to the President.

‘Gun Appreciation Day,’ scheduled for January 19 and organized by the consulting firm Political Media, will celebrate guns and the Second Amendment. Attendees across the country are encouraged to “go to your local gun store, gun range or gun show with your Constitution, American flags and your Hands off my Guns sign.”

“The Obama administration has shown that it is more than willing to trample the Constitution to impose its dictates upon the American people,” Larry Ward, president of Political Media Inc. and chairman of the event, told The Washington Times“If the American people don’t fight back now, Obama will do to the Second Amendment what he has already done to the First with Obamacare. Gut it without a moment’s thought to our basic constitutional rights.”

The ‘Gun Appreciation Day’ website provides links to memes that can be shared, a petition gun enthusiasts can sign, an online donation form and a sponsor application. The petition asks the U.S. government “to cease and desist all efforts to disarm or short-arm the American people by limiting and disparaging the Second Amendment or rendering it a dead letter through federal legislation, interpretation and regulation.”

Participants can also tweet about the event using the hashtags #GunAppreciationDay and #119.

The event has support from Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, Second Amendment Foundation, Special Operations Speaks, Revolution PAC, Citizens and Country, Social Security Institute, Committee to Draft Judge Andrew Napolitano, Conservative Action Alerts, Women Warriors PAC and Conservative Action Fund, according to The Times.

While the Facebook fan page has more than 14,000 likes, the event page has fewer than 4,000 “attending.” The Twitter account has roughly 200 followers. While still a week away, the low social media interaction could signal that the event will be a flop.

But gun owners are going to do all they can — peaceably — to make sure that when Obama gets sworn in on January 21, he understands how many Americans value their Second Amendment rights.

    History has shown us time and time again that infringing upon the right to bear arms will only increase crime, and take away that protection for any law abiding citizen.

    This is a right, not a privelidge.

  2. The public doesn’t appreciate that Obama will try to chisel away at our rights. One group at a time. Using the other Americans against you and I . Who don’t want his Marxist view of America to come. Any protest against Obama is worth a try in the end. Of course the liberal Media will relish any unfavorable results for their God and chief. I urge any pro 2nd Amendment supporters to do what they can.

    AMERICA’S HUNTERS —
    Pretty Amazing!

    The world’s largest army…
    America ‘s hunters!
    I had never thought about this…

    A blogger added up the deer license sales
    in just a handful of states and arrived at
    a striking conclusion:
    There were over 600,000 hunters
    this season in the state of Wisconsin.
    Allow me to restate that number:
    Over the last several months,Wisconsin’s hunters became the eighth largest army
    in the world. More men under arms than
    in Iran . More than France and Germany
    combined.

    These men deployed to the woods of a
    single American state, Wisconsin,to hunt with firearms, and no one was killed.

    That number pales in comparison to the
    750,000 who hunted the woods of Pennsylvania and Michigan’s
    700,000 hunters. All of whom have
    now returned home safely.
    Toss in a quarter million hunters in
    West Virginia and it literally establishes
    the fact that the hunters of those four
    states alone would comprise the largest
    army in the world.
    And then add in the total number of
    hunters in the other 46 states.
    It’s millions more.

    The point?

    America will forever be safe from foreign invasion with that kind of
    home-grown firepower.

    Hunting…it’s not just a way to fill the
    freezer. It’s a matter of national security.

    ***************************************
    That’s why all enemies, Foreign and
    domestic, want to see us disarmed.

    Food for thought, when next we consider
    gun control.

    Have A Great Day!
    ————————————-
    Overall it’s true,
    so if we disregard some assumptions
    that hunters don’t possess the same
    skills as soldiers, the question would
    still remain…what army of 2 million
    would want to face 30, 40, 50 million
    armed citizens. Add to that many of us
    have enough guns to arm many more if
    need be.
    (IF YOU AGREE, AS I DO, PASS IT ON, I FEEL GOOD THAT I HAVE AN ARMY
    OF MILLIONS WHO WOULD PROTECT OUR LAND AND I SURE DON’T WANT
    THE GOVERNMENT TAKING CONTROL OF THE POSSESSION OF FIREARMS)
    For the sake of our freedom,
    Don’t ever allow gun control
    or confiscation of guns.
