Gun Appreciation Day: Do You Support It?

Conservative groups are asking people across the nation – and right here in Tampa Bay – to show their support for the 2nd Amendment on Jan. 19. Will you support the movement?

As politicians line up to support stricter gun control measures in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary massacre, conservative groups have joined forces to draw a line in the sand.

The result: Gun Appreciation Day.

Set for Jan. 19 – not coincidentally two days before President Barack Obama’s second inauguration – the observance is meant to be a national show of force in favor of gun owners’ rights. Support for the movement has come in from such sponsors as the Second Amendment Foundation, Special Operations Speaks, the Women Warriors PAC and others.

The groups are asking people around the country, and right here in the Tampa Bay area, to “go to your local gun store, gun range or gun show with your Constitution, American flags and your ‘Hands off my Guns’ sign to send a loud and clear message to Congress and President Obama.”

Here’s what we want to know from you Tampa Bay: Do you plan to take part in Gun Appreciation Day? Should Congress and the President keep their hands off your guns? Or do you think the time has come for stricter gun control laws? If so, what measures would you support? Share your thoughts in the comments section.

So Erik, am I the one blathering about disarming or am I simply linking to a Senator stating it? Have you watched any of the Feinstein vids I've posted? I'd venture to say no because if you did....well then your ability to comprehend is worse than originally thought. Perhaps we can open up the DSM so we can prescribe something for your ailment. Here's another Feinstein vid confirming she wants an eventual disarmed society. www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/feinstein-purpose-dry-supply-these-weapons-over-time_697629.html Many so-called "Representatives" want an outright ban. Do you not have the ability to read about Chicago or New York? Speaking of Chicago, how about the criminal mayor? http://news.investors.com/ibd-editorials/013013-642578-rahm-emanuel-threatens-banks-on-gun-control.htm?p=full I think I and every other person have every right in the world to speak of the children of the President, considering in our fake "We the People" world, the President works for US, as do the Secret Service protecting the family. Our taxes pay for them and considering I can freely speak, I do believe it's a-ok to comment on the Presidents comment/mindset. Man, I seriously feel for you........you do realize you discredit yourself when you allude to race when something is said against Obama. It's not being a bigot when one simply points out the hypocrisy of ALL these scumbag politicians. GUNS good for their protection. US.....well we can just wait for the police.

And you cannot even question the criminals about them and their security disarming. www.youtube.com/watch?v=RCC-rEx81PE GUNS good for them. US.....shut up slave. By the way, as usual, the proper question isn't being asked........why is the Federal Govt arming this way???????? www.businessinsider.com/dhs-fletc-ammunition-purchases-750-million-200-million-40-caliber-rounds-2013-1 How many of you are even aware of the all the ammunition being purchased by Homeland Security and if you are aware, do you question it??

You are a classic denier of reality. Yes I listened to the Feinstein video, and she says nothing that you claim, unless you are one of those that thinks you should be able to own military high capacity weapons, and no background checks on sale. You obviously have a problem with reasonable regulation, and you are NOT "we the people" because every poll made has a large majority of the population in favor of such basic controls.

You really spend too much time on conspiracy nut sites, and youtube videos making stuff up. Are you against Homeland security spending significant time training its people, with fully automatic weapons? You must be concerned that they are practicing against terrorists. Are you a terrorist wannabe?

You don't really say anything in this post, except attempt to toot your own horn, and make claims about Mark Twain that you are not competent to do.
