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.
Gun Control is a package deal
Crime control, not gun control
No “raaaaacism” here!
The lovely little auburn haired lady in red with her back to the camera addressing the crowd is AZ State Rep Kelly Townsend.
The “Anonymous” family. Normally I find those Guy Fawkes masks from “V” somewhat sinister, but on the kids they cracked me up.
