2nd Amendment Rally AZ State Capitol Jan 19th

Yesterday, as part of Gun Appreciation Day I attended the Support the 2nd Amendment Rally at the Arizona State Capitol complex.
It was a spirited if somewhat disorganized event, as whoever had put it together had not applied for a permit for audio amplification, thus the first group of speakers was unable to be heard throughout the crowd of roughly 2000 folks on hand until someone had the bright idea to ask the AZ DPS officers on hand if we could use the bullhorn. They said it was fine as long as there were no complaints so the later speakers all got a chance to be heard throughout the crowd. Quite a few AZ state legislators spoke…there’s a bill afoot in the AZ State Legislature to make any new Federal firearms restrictions null and void in Arizona. Below is a selection of the best pics and signs from the rally. We’re going to do it again in February.

And yes, most of the people in the crowd, even the State Reps, were packing.

    Nope. Sorry, but they don’t have a hip, modern national organization that appeals to 20-somethings, single women and immigrants, preferably on Facebook and Twitter. They keep quoting old fashioned stuff by long dead white guys nobody cares about anyway. No chance of them winning… Next thing you know, they be spouting off about limited government and low taxes or some other dumb stuff like that. How 20th century…

    Biden: The NRA Is “Overreacting” Because They Are “Vulnerable”…

    During an interview with CNN yesterday, Vice President Joe Biden reacted to the recent ad campaigns launched by the National Rifle Association in response to President Obama’s call for more gun control.

    “Look, I think the NRA’s reaction — overreaction — is a reflection of the vulnerability of their position,” Biden said shortly.

    the men who fly the fighter jets and the ones who put the ok codes into the nukes are our kids and they are not traitors like Kerry, Obama, Reid etal.

    more likely is that the fighter jets would bomb the f’ out of D.C..

    Poll: 57% Of Americans Want Stricter Enforcement Of Existing Gun Laws, Only 32% Want New Gun Control Laws…

    While President Obama and his liberal buddies call for more gun legislation, the American people think enforcement of current laws is more important.

    According to a new Rasmussen poll, 57 percent of Americans think “stricter enforcement of existing gun control laws” is more important than creating new gun laws.

    Only 32 percent of those polled think creation of new gun control laws is more important than stricter enforcement. The remaining 11 percent were unsure.

    Those numbers are pretty consistent. Most people don’t think we need any new laws.

    Federal gun prosecutions are down something like 70% under Obama. Biden said the other day that they “don’t have time” to enforce those laws.

    So why make news ones that they won’t have time to enforce?

    @ lobo91:

    Did they even give the option for those of us who think that there are already too many gun laws? When gun control enforcement leads to debacles like Waco, Ruby Ridge, and Fast and Furious, I don’t know how much more enforcement we can stand.

    Oh, they’ll enforce them against the right people. David Gregory won’t get prosecuted for breaking DC’s “Assault Weapons” ban, but I can assure you that if you or I broke the law in that way we’d be prosecuted.

    Joe Biden: “America Owes” Latinos For Supporting Obama’s Re-Election…

    Vice President Joe Biden is thanking Latinos for their support in helping him and President Barack Obama get re-elected.

    Biden and his family appeared onstage at the Kennedy Center on Sunday night to help open the Latino Inaugural 2013 concert.

    Biden says something “profound” happened with the enormous Latino support for Obama, and he says the Latino community underestimates its power.

    Biden said “America owes” Latinos and declared, “This is your moment”

    Biden Meets With DNC Officials About Likely Presidential Run In 2016…

    President Obama’s Second Inauguration was only yesterday, but gearing up for the 2016 election has already begun. Vice President Joe Biden is today meeting with the Democratic National Committee in Washington.

    “Vice President Joe Biden and his wife Jill will be hosting a private reception at the Democratic National Committee’s meeting in Washington on Tuesday, according to two Democrats familiar with the event,” reports CNN.

    “The unannounced reception will take place with party delegates after the DNC meeting concludes in the afternoon.”

    One DNC member tells CNN, “Biden has a national network of supporters, and this is a reminder to them that he’s still in the game. … What time is Hillary coming?”

    I can see his slogan now: “You survived the last 8 years…how bad could it be?”
