Celebrate Gun Appreciation Day

Celebrate Gun Appreciation Day
SPECIAL

The gun grabbers in Congress have made it known that an onslaught of draconian anti-2nd Amendment legislative efforts is in store for Americans. But now gun rights supporters have a plan to fight back by supporting 2nd Amendment rights en masse on Jan. 19 during the newly created Gun Appreciation Day.

A coalition of political organizations, including  the Second Amendment Foundation, Revolution PAC, Citizens and Country, Conservative Action Alerts, Women Warriors PAC and others, have popularized the idea to organize against the President’s and Congress’ “post Sandy Hook assault on gun rights.”

“We have never had a president who so callously disregards the Constitution, Congress, the courts and the will of the American people,” said Gun Appreciation Day Chairman Larry Ward.

Organizers have called for supporters to celebrate the day by making gun purchases, visiting gun stores or simply wearing 2nd Amendment-supporting T-shirts and ball caps.

“We felt that there needed to be a swift, strong statement, Chick-fil-A style, to show that we’re not only here but we’re vocal,” Ward said, referring to the outpouring of conservative support for the chicken sandwich chain last year following statements made in support of traditional marriage by its president.

Jan. 19 is the day before Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) likely will introduce legislation for a harsh new assault weapon ban. It is two days before President Barack Obama, who has promised to initiate new gun control measures, is inaugurated for his second term.
