Anyone intersted in doing this in salem when the time comes?
I'm in !
right on. well it isnt til next year apparently, so i will look into applying for a permit for that. see if we can get enough people from around the state to show up. atleast some of the more active NWFA people.
Think the national guard will get called?
why would they be called in?
Because there will be alot of people potentially armed, in a group, in public.
(was mostly a joke about people owning guns scaring the "others")
Unfortunately, there's probably a lot of potential for "additional security" to be assigned to an event like this. Every time local lawmakers entertain the idea of removing one or more gun control restrictions we hear the same thing from the same people: "Dear GOD, the streets will run red with BLOOD!"
They predict shootouts over parking spaces and aggressive driving; here they will bemoan the certainty of shootouts in the porta-potty lines. Vendors will be shot over unfairly priced bottles of water. When it turns ugly (as they insist it WILL turn ugly) you'll have an angry mob already heavily armed with "high-powered" this and "high-capacity" that.
While I think calling out the NG is outrageously ridiculous, I would only be a little surprised to actually see them there. The media will focus on the potential for disaster, and then credit the high visibility of well-prepared security officers when it doesn't happen.
that's kinda what I was getting at.
i don't like typing that much though. :thumbup:
Sounds like a great idea!:thumbup:
did'nt i float this idea 2 months ago and no one liked it?
Yeah, but you didn't say anything about Ted Nugent. NOW I'm in.
Seriously. If this is done right, it could really matter. And it might be just in time. The folks on this blog are always talking about making a difference within the system. So let's put a group together to discuss how we might set up an event in Salem or even send a contingent from our part of the country to Washington. Fundraising to pay for busses, making sure we have a spot, all the stuff that will take a year to set up. Then go.
Mr. Link, you have my commitment to help drive the bus, so to speak, on this. I'm volunteering my time and what's left of my brain. PM me if you like.
Half of the Oregon National Guard will be formed up in the Demonstration out of uniform exercising their 1A right to protect their 2A right.
Its not that hard. Just need to take I-5 or I-205 northbound, and Washington's right across the columbia.
LOL. JK. :laugh:
TorpedoMan Man, you are just ahead of the curve. We'll pay more attention next time.
Hey, Razvan, you're making feel like Bluto in "Animal House". Let's GOOOOOOOO!
Hmmm the link didn't work for me.
Link still not working, but I would be in for a 2a march in Salem..
Two is one and one is none.
I am also in for this but think it would make even a stronger point in downtown Portland!
