Pro-Gun Rallies: Why the Turnout Was So Low

This one isn’t hard at all to understand.

Don’t think for a second that there isn’t MASSIVE support across this country for the 2nd Amendment and gun rights.  However, supporters of the 2nd Amendment and most other conservative causes aren’t anything like the protesters on the left.

The biggest difference is that most law-abiding, Constitution-loving, honest conservatives have these things called “jobs” and “lives” that must be attended to daily.  Most can’t just skip work to attend political rallies.  They’re not being paid by liberal billionaires like George Soros and many other liberal sources to carry signs and stir up trouble.

Do not make the mistake of believing that silence is acquiescence (lefties, you may need to look that on up).  We will only allow ourselves to be pushed so far before we push back.  

It’s only a matter of time before one or more of the left’s useful idiots, who are being stirred to action by people who will NEVER suffer the consequences of these actions, gets shot when they surround a conservative carrying a gun who doesn’t know the intentions of the mob surrounding him/her, and legitimately fears for their life and the lives of their family.  And the Maxine Waters and other democrat politicians, and leftist media figures and movie stars who are encouraging their sheep-like followers to engage in such activity will NEVER be at risk of being harmed because it’s their idiot followers doing their dirty work for them.

Oh, and lest we forget those on the left calling for revolution, you need to understand that if the 80 to 100 million law-abiding gun owners were the problem, you would know it by now.  But if you want to keep pushing, we have one thing to say.

We’re your Huckleberry.

Organizers of pro-gun rallies lament low turnout

 A group of protesters gathers in Washington, D.C., for the March for Our Rights, a rally supporting gun ownership. Similar protests took place in other cities, with the intent to outdo the March for Our Lives gun-control rallies, but organizers were disappointed in low turnout.

CHICAGO – Student-led rallies around the country on Saturday aimed to show support for gun rights, though their effort drew smaller-than-expected crowds in a bid to counter the well-funded and organized youth gun-control lobby that emerged after the massacre in a Florida high school earlier this year.

Here in Chicago, people rallied in a corner of Millennium Park. In Los Angeles, protesters yelled “gun rights are human rights” as they marched near Pershing Square. In Washington, an American flag billowed against a backdrop of the Capitol as attendees said guns are being used as scapegoats and that society’s problems run deeper than firearms.

Students who say their views have been silenced in recent months as vocal gun-control advocates have been monopolizing attention used the marches as a way to raise awareness of their fears that hasty solutions could lead to an erosion of the Second Amendment.

Colin FitzSimmons, 13, of Algonquin, Illinois, spoke at the Chicago rally, sounding alarms that liberal gun-control efforts really want to “to disarm the populace.” People held signs reading “we’re not going away” and “take back gun rights.”

“Our generation isn’t going to embrace gun control,” Colin said, noting that any changes to gun laws need to be carefully considered. “The devil is in the details.”

Organizers of Saturday’s marches said many conservative students feel as though their views are not being taken into consideration in the debate about school shootings, and the marches on Saturday were planned as a way to show that not all students support gun control.

Planning for Saturday’s rallies started in April, weeks after gun control rallies took place in Washington and other cities. Some of Saturday’s organizers found one another on Instagram and Facebook and decided to speak out against what they saw as an attack on gun ownership. They expected a modest turnout on Saturday, but far fewer people showed up than organizers had hoped.

In Chicago, organizers planned for about 125 people, but the rally drew approximately 35. The group gathered in a corner of Millennium Park, not the great lawn, because organizers did not secure a permit and park security forced them to leave.

Earlier in the morning in the same city, hundreds of anti-gun violence protesters shut down 10 blocks of the Dan Ryan Expressway, one of the busiest interstates in the United States. Their march along the highway was in protest of gun violence and gun-related deaths in Chicago, and the disruption drew widespread attention – and some scorn, from groups including the National Rifle Association.

Kevin Yan, an 18-year-old University of Chicago student, said he is “an outlier” at his school because he is passionate about the Second Amendment. He said he has never owned a gun and has never shot a gun, but he believes gun ownership is “a critical American tradition” and “really important for self-defense.”

“The media always says the millennial generation has decided it’s against gun rights,” he said. “We are here to show that’s not true.”

In Palm Beach, Florida, about 100 people were expected to rally at a park; 13 came, including organizer Ashley Johnson, three speakers and the parents of two of the speakers.

The event was meant to be a counterpoint to the March for Our Lives rallies that attracted thousands across the country after the February shooting, including at events in Florida.

“The goal is to be just as successful as March for Our Lives,” Johnson said. “We want to outdo them.”

Ralph Curra, 14, who was an eighth grader at Westglades Middle school, which is adjacent to Marjory Stoneman Douglas, spoke at the event. He recalled hearing the screams from next door, and being on lockdown for five hours as the investigation began into the Feb. 14 attack.

“Raising the age to buy a gun, all you parents out there, when you send your child to college, don’t you want them to be able to protect themselves from criminals?” he asked. “The new laws will leave your child vulnerable to attack in today’s dangerous society.”

Johnson said she was disappointed in the turnout.

“I don’t know why more people didn’t show up. I think a lot of conservatives are just afraid to show up for public events,” she said through tears.

In Washington, a few dozen high schoolers, college students and recent graduates came together near the Capitol for the Second Amendment march. American flags and “Make America Great Again” hats dotted the crowd.

Tyler Yzaguirre, president of the Second Amendment Institute, told the gathering that although they were few in number, they would show the left that no one should be afraid to defend their rights.

Organizer Morgan Sachs greeted the group and thanked everyone for coming.

“The media doesn’t seem to like to talk about pro-gun students, they only want to talk about anti-gun rhetoric,” she said. “Our voices are going to be heard now.”

Jeff Sessions “State of the Union” Speech On Amnesty

Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) delivered a speech from the senate floor on Wednesday that was “State of the Union” quality, and should have been broadcast in prime time on every network.  He very eloquently debunks the myth that there is ANY kind of labor shortage in America, especially any shortage that importing millions of low-skilled illegal aliens would solve.  He also very deftly exposes the democrats (especially Harry Reid and senate democrats) for their support of Obama’s lawlessness and unconstitutional behavior, and their encouragement of Obama to “go big, or go home” when it comes to signing his illegal amnesty.

The time where this type of statesmanship could have actually changed the course of our nation away from becoming the Marxist clone of Venezuela which we are becoming likely passed a few years ago.  The liberal/progressive media will not give it air time, and the people who need to understand the truth which Mr. Sessions is speaking are either profiting from the flood of illegals, or they are ideologically blind to the truth.

IRS and the Small Business Owner

The IRS believed a business owner wasn’t paying proper wages to his help.

An agent was sent to the business to investigate the owner.

IRS AGENT: “I need a list of your employees and how much you pay them”.

Owner: “Well, there’s Clarence, my hired hand. He’s been with me for 3 years. I pay him $200 a week plus free room and board. Then there’s the mentally challenged guy. He works about 18 hours every day and does about 90% of the work around here. He makes about $10 per week, and pays his own room and board. I buy him a bottle of rum and a case of beer every Saturday night so he can cope with life. Also, he gets to sleep with my wife occasionally”.

IRS AGENT: “That’s the guy I want to talk to – the mentally challenged one”.

Owner: “That’ll be me. What’d you want to know?”


Atlas is about to Shrug

Those who have never built a business and signed the FRONT of a paycheck, which would be most of the Marxist hacks in Washington D.C. and the entitlement zombies who keep reelecting them, simply will NEVER be able to understand the simple truth this man speaks. Right before our eyes, Atlas is about to shrug. Those who can will no longer have the incentive to DO. They will work for profit and for MUTUAL benefit, i.e. wage for service, but they will never allow themselves to be enslaved, which is what’s happening. If we continue this path, those guiding us down it have no idea how bad things are about to become. Or do they?

The following are highlights from an email message sent by Siegel to his staff that was obtained and verified as authentic by Gawker: Continue reading

Obama Rejecting Pipeline, Continues Lying About Why

Obama and the democrats are flat out lying about the XL pipeline.  Obama rejected the pipeline, and the 20+ thousand jobs it would create immediately, and the benefits to our economy of getting more oil from an ally, and less oil from people who hate us, all because he pitched a temper tantrum over having his bluff called by republicans.

Obama and the democrats are also lying about the Ogallala aquifer.  They drag their feet and claim there is a need for a bunch of research about the impacts of running a pipeline through this “virgin wilderness.”  The only problem is that it ain’t wilderness, and it DARN sure ain’t virgin.

Look at the map linked below.  It depicts the Ogallala aquifer, but notice what else it depicts.  THOUSANDS of miles of pipeline are ALREADY crisscrossing the area of the aquifer.

Obama says he wants to see American jobs created.  The only jobs he wants to see created are in government.  Obama and his policies are DESTROYING American jobs, and he is doing all he can to ensure that we can’t gain energy independence.

This may not be one of them, but there are plenty of legitimate reasons to impeach this fool.  Why is our spineless congress doing nothing about this tyrant?

Comprehensive List of Obama Tax Hikes

With all the crap about the rich not paying their “fair” share, and Obama saying every couple of months that he’s going to focus like a laser on jobs when he’s failed to do so every time he says it, why don’t we take a look at what Obama’s tax policies and tax increases are doing to both jobs and your wallet.

Most of Obama’s hidden tax increases are buried in the bowels of Obamacare.  You remember.  That monstrosity of a bill that we had to pass before we could find out what was in it?

10 signs the double-dip recession has begun

Double-dip begun? Really? For that to be true, the FIRST recession would have to have ended, and the signs of that having occurred would seem to be missing.

Nonetheless, whether it’s a new recession, or just an acceleration of the first, things aren’t getting better, and all the deficit spending in the world isn’t going to change that. Without a return to historically proven and sound economic principals (i.e. NOT Keynesian liberal/progressive/communist/socialist drivel), this ‘recession‘ WILL turn into a depression, and potentially an economic collapse.

10 signs the double-dip recession has begun

By Douglas A. McIntyre
updated 7/31/2011 1:53:54 PM ET

Friday’s news on GDP shows the double dip has arrived — an expansion of only 1.3 percent and consumer spending up 0.1 percent in the second quarter. Astonishingly low by any account. The debt ceiling trouble and lack of a longer term resolution to the deficit will make it worse.

The U.S. has entered a second recession. It may not be as bad as the first. Economists say that the Great Recession began in December 2007 and lasted until July 2009. That may be the way that the economy was seen through the eyes of experts, but many Americans do not believe that the 2008-2009 downturn ever ended. A Gallup poll released in April found that 29 percent of those queried thought the economy was in a “depression” and 26 percent said that the original recession had persisted into 2011.
