Walk With Me

I am sick and tired of the media and the leftist, revisionist politicians controlling the debate on guns. Guns are a tool. Yes they are a deadly tool but a tool none the less. The right to keep these tools is a fundamental one guaranteed by our constitution. Attempting to greatly restrict or completely ban them is a civil rights issue not a safety issue. Shall gun owners need to add the Star of David to our clothes so that the liberals will be able to easily identify us? Shall our whereabouts be tracked and our addresses be reported on maps like a sex offender. Gun owners are in danger of becoming second class citizens in this country we all love.
I propose we band together to do something about this. In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King I suggest we band together and come from farms and towns and cities and march on Washington. Let not our voices go quietly into the night; let us be heard; let the nation know the depth of our conviction. Let us march on Washington and peaceable demonstrate for our future and our children’s future.
Let’s have a Million Gun Owner march on Washington! Who will walk with me?

I don't think carrying a million guns to Was DC is a good idea...

They seem to have plenty of guns there already, based on crime statistics. Do we want to take them more!!??

flowmaster commented on Monday, Jan 14, 2013 at 14:13 PM

I don't think we are quite there yet Watchgator but yes if we are talking about a complete ban I would walk with you.

watchgator commented on Monday, Jan 14, 2013 at 14:28 PM

Million Gun Owner Charles and Angie not Million Guns. Be serious please!

Charles_and_Angie_Howell commented on Monday, Jan 14, 2013 at 15:35 PM

OK, seriously.

Are we all gonna drive there? 'Cuz you ain't gonna take a single firearm by mass transit without a HUGE hassle. Where we gonna park and sleep?

How will we secure all these arms? Lock'em up in the hotel room? NOT!

How about all the bad publicity when a drunk, armed Alabama fan shoots a drunk, armed Auburn fan or vice versa?

Lastly, you know it will burn up the wires of the leftist media when JimBob Jones is driving to Washington before the march, or back from Washington after the march and his guns are stolen outa the car. I can just hear the interview with the local news that ends up on the CNN with Piers Morgan...

"Yeah well I stopped to get a doughnut cuz the 'hot' sign was on and I had to use the bathroom. I reckon them robbers saw my outa state tags and NRA bumper sticker and figured I was headed home from the march. They stole both my AR15s, a colt.45, a Beretta 9mm, and my daddy's old double barrel. Only thing I got left is my Glock 40, in case I'm attacked."

I am all for gun rights, but we need to be smart about this. I have no use for marches and demonstrations. Get on the phone and internet and send messages to Congress about what they DON't need to do.

A million letters would mean a LOT more than a million (more like 80,000) marchers.

whats all this gun control talk got to do with "honoring mlk"???????

Bryant commented on Monday, Jan 14, 2013 at 18:37 PM

Charlie, I agree with you. I write to Saxby, and Johnny and John. And to the Herald when the mood strikes me. I believe that's more effective than marching or ranting on a blog. Although I do enjoy a good rant now and again.

This is a great idea watchgator! Don't let these narrow-minded people on here dissuade you from your passionate defense of your rights.

Charles_and_Angie_Howell commented on Monday, Jan 14, 2013 at 21:01 PM

"Narrow minded"?

I raised realistic concerns, and I am called "narrow minded?"

I used to dislike liberals for their pie-in-the-sky BS idea. Now I think the wild-eyed extremists are evenly divided.

Gator - you go do whatever you want. I believe 100% in the 2nd Amendment and the right of individuals to bear arms. But I do not agree with your methods and while I will not oppose you, I will NOT support you.

Charles_and_Angie_Howell commented on Monday, Jan 14, 2013 at 21:03 PM

BTW - crazy ideas like this is one reason I am not a member of the NRA.

If the NRA took reasonable positions instead of supporting everything, they would have more main street/centrist support.

Gun_nut_1776 commented on Monday, Jan 14, 2013 at 22:38 PM

Charlie I did not address you specifically but yes you are being narrow-minded. You and I agree on many things but I do not agree with you here. If watchgator believes strongly enough that a protest march in Washington would do some good I for one will support his idea. I think a million (or more) gun owners peaceably occupying the National Mall would get Obama's attention. If it didn't then nothing would.

I invite you to read what watchgator said again. No where did he say he wanted a million armed people to invade our capital. In this case it seems you are being blinded by your own interpretation and your depiction of gun owners as drunk, backwoods "Choot um" rednecks is just off base and frankly not helpful. I have personally spoken with John Barrow face to face about the issue of gun control and I know the benefits of contacting your elected representatives however this battle for our freedoms is not just being fought in congress it's front lines are in the media, in small town America and on big city streets and in some cases right in our own living rooms. While I am not packing for a March on Washington I will not belittle others for thinking big.

Gun-nut I agree let watchgator have his grand idea but I also will point out that unless he is a logistics expert he may need some organizational help to pull it off. Just saying...

Charles_and_Angie_Howell commented on Tuesday, Jan 15, 2013 at 08:06 AM

Gun_nut, Charlie.

Watchgator uses the term "march on Washington" three times, once followed by the term "Million Gun Owner." Not sure what constitutes an invasion, but a million people is A LOT more than Eisenhower had prior to D-Day.

I am not 'blinded' by anything. I did not say all gun owners are "drunk, backwoods "Choot um" rednecks," but some are. Guess who the media will put on TV - (hint) it will not be the sporting clays shooter in a fine tweed jacket, and not even Ol Charlie from the 'Boro in his flannel shirt and Carhardt jacket. No - it will be Bubba and Cletus from "Hootervillllle, Alabama."

Thank you Hunter for acknowledging the logistics aspect. I have worked in Logistics for over 25 years and the points I raised yesterday are valid ones. LOG101 = Transportation, lodging, weapons security, food.

watchpig commented on Tuesday, Jan 15, 2013 at 08:32 AM

watchgator I am a reasonable person but I just can't see how limiting the magazine capacity of firearms is a civil rights issue. No one, again NO ONE, is talking about Banning All Guns. I wouldn't even support a partial ban but I would support common sense measures like limiting magazines to 10 rounds and requiring background checks for everyone even private sales.

I understand that the second amendment is in the Bill of Rights but come on let's be reasonable here.

Firearms_Enthusiast commented on Tuesday, Jan 15, 2013 at 14:20 PM

I just read that the White House will be releasing it's unilateral gun control measures (Executive Orders) tomorrow with the President surrounded by children to score some additional political capital.

It is reported that these will include at least all 19 measures that Biden looked at plus a full set of legislative recommendations.

Sounds ominous doesn't it?

Of course this is stuff that Biden came up with and we all know that if brains were dynamite Biden couldn't even blow his own nose.

wwwhunter commented on Wednesday, Jan 16, 2013 at 17:21 PM

Not enough brains to blow his nose...lmafo

Scott Garner commented on Wednesday, Jan 16, 2013 at 20:33 PM

Perhaps "honoring MLK," who was, you may recall, shot and killed, was not the best way to make your case.

I'm sorry, but no matter what side of this issue you're on, if the issue of guns doesn't make you uncomfortable, you aren't thinking about it right.

watchgator commented on Thursday, Jan 17, 2013 at 11:56 AM

Scott Garner I did not even consider that fact but what I did consider is that MLK was the preeminent Civil Rights leader of the 20th Century. This gun issue is a Civil Rights issue and a peaceful demonstration is an effective tactic that MLK excelled at.

To me you are the one who dishonors his legacy by focusing on his death and not his life.

Scott Garner commented on Thursday, Jan 17, 2013 at 17:18 PM

If you can't wrap your head around the symbolic train wreck of a million gun owners marching on Washington during the holiday honoring a man killed by a nutjob with a rifle, you don't have too solid a grasp on the legacy of MLK. Living, dead or otherwise.
