The one in Raleigh North Carolina was a complete clusterf**k !!!
We started to arrive around 11 at the old capitol building... then were told there was to be a march and speeches. We eventually were corralled on the far backside of the (closed) State legislature building on the green... where NO ONE could see us from the street. There was misinformation about where we could be, where we could march, IF we could have signs and placards (and whether or not we would be arrested)
.... NO ONE bothered to bring even a bull horn to help direct the event !!.... Didn't really matter... because there was NO media there, and if there were, they would not have been able to even FIND US anyway!! My son and I talked with a police officer for a while and then took ourselves, our signs and went home. BTW... kudos for the cops being professional and controlled. It was if they were walking a line between empathy for the cause... and sympathy about the end results.
Also.... while I also understand how pissed off everyone was ... this was NOT a rally that should have had anything to do with impeachment, taxes, abortion, gay rights or God. It seems too many where using it to drag in other issues instead of staying focused on the task at hand ... the potential punishment of law-abiding, responsible gun owners!!! If you think this is not important... keep in mind how single minded and focused the ANTI's are in this fight!!??
To the organizers; I stand ready to have my voice heard in this... but don't call until you guys can get your $h*t together!! Now if you'll excuse me, I have to try and find ammo for.... well, anything I own.
PS- Some asshat brought a LOADED shotgun to the Dixie show today at the Fairgrounds!! It went off when he took it out of the case to be checked!! Two people injured and the show locked down!! To that IDIOT.. I also say a big "thank you very little!!"
