We will accomplish our mission by a centralized, peaceful march on the United States Capitol, supported by satellite marches to State Capitols and smaller cities all across America.

http://secondamendmentmarch.com/

Summary is that sometime in spring 2010 these guys want to do a million person march on DC, as well as satellite marches at state capitols.

I personally couldn't go to DC, but I would DEFINATELY march on St Paul.

I'm just not much of an organizer. However, I suspect that some of the people here are. I am reposting this, I think as this would be Minnesota Specific, and definately politics, it fits in this catagory.

As many have said before, gun owners have jobs, so marches are hard to them. Yet other people like to go around saying 'From my cold dead hands'. Well, i'd rather use up a vactacion day or a sick day than have to actually exchance bullets! I definately see that a trip to DC is going to be difficult for most hard working middle class people, but I think their idea of a bunch of smaller marches on the capitol of each state is a good one.

Again, the sacrifice of a single vaction day and a long day's drive, that is something I can do.


Edit to add: What are some other MN specific gun boards and forums this could be spread to as well?

A March won't do anything, Press would barely mention it. Only thing that works is NRA lobbying and voting out the anti's

You don't think a nice, peaceful OC march on the Capitol won't make the press?

I made the press OC'ing at the Capitol, and I was just one guy...

In every topic I check out, you're devil's advocate, like every time. I'm not criticizing, promise, just noticing. After all, DAs often scare up the best comments.
