Will You Be Celebrating Gun Appreciation Day?

Coalition of Gun Rights, Conservative Groups Proclaim Jan. 19 "Gun Appreciation Day." Will you be celebrating it, and if so, how?

A broad coalition of gun rights advocates and conservate groups have proclaimed Jan. 19 "Gun Appreciation Day."

In a press release, this coalition urged citizens to use Jan. 19 to go to local gun shows, ranges and stores to show support for the 2nd Amendment.

Scheduled to send a message to Washington two days before President Barack Obama's second inauguration, the "Gun Appreciation Day" is expected to rival "Chick-fil-A Day" as a public statement of protest against government policies.

"The Obama administration has shown that it is more than willing to trample the Constitution to impose its dictates upon the American people," Gun Appreciation Day chairman Larry Ward, president of Political Media, Inc said in the press release.

"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 includes coalition members such as Second Amendment Foundation, Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, Special Operations Speaks, Revolution PAC, Citizens and Country, Social Security Institute, Committee to Draft Judge Andrew Napolitano, Conservative Action Alerts, Women Warriors PAC, Conservative Action Fund, and Political Media, Inc. The National Rifle Association, however, is not part of this group. 

Gun Appreciation Day member organizations urged their supporters to line up "around the block" at gun stores, gun counters, gun shows, and gun ranges "to protest the Obama administration's post Sandy Hook assault on gun rights."

Gun rights movement leader Alan Gottlieb founder of the Second Amendment Foundation and chairman of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms stated, "We need to ban politicians who assault our rights, not firearms that are used thousands of times a day to protect lives and property from criminal attack."

Will you be celebrating the first Gun Appreciation Day and if so, how?

it is incomprehensible to me that the very administration that fostered Fast and Furious, which resulted in continuing murder and mayhem by sending illegal weapons over the border to Mexico should be calling for more gun control. The Obama Regime covered this up and has stone walled it. The only logical conclusion that can be drawn is that the regime thaught to expose the gun trafficing and blame this illegal activity on the gun dealers in an effort to impeach the veracity of the gun dealers and thereby change public opinion in a negative way regarding the Second Amandment. This remine does not beleive in the Second Amendment and would like to do away with it, then why don't they have guts to say so and have a dialogue? From what I have read, the atrocity that took place in Newtown Ct could not have been prevented with more gun laws. The issue of treatment for mental illness would bring about less of these violent and sensless crimes. K Enforcing the laws that are already on the books would go a long way in reducing armed crime. In the ATF publication entitled - State Laws and Published Ordinances - firearms. 2010 2011 31 edition there are 497 pages of lawsin the accompaning publication ATF Federal Firearms Regulations Reference Guide 2005, there are 240 of additional rules and regulations. Enforce the rules and regulations that already exist, and do not touch our Second Amendment. Marvin Mann
