2nd Amendment Rally – Part III: “The Rally”

After checking in our sidearms. We proceeded up to the rotunda, only to find it chock full of people in support of freedom, liberty and the 2nd Amendment.

There were a number of speakers from the NRA, Sisters of the Second Amendment and more. Along with a raffle of a Ruger LCP, gift certificate and an autographed copy of Holbrook’s book on the 2nd Amendment.

Photos of the rally….

After the rally, we all broke up into several groups and went to the offices of the varying state senators and representatives.

Well the Democrats must have caught wind of the rally. As they were M.I.A. the entire time. One secretary told us they were in session. But then we found out they were not. Another that they were caucusing. Another taking photos. I pretty much walked away with the opinion that they had made sure that their schedule would be busy so as to avoid us.

We did go to the offices of a couple Republicans.  One had a meeting. A second, Merle Phillips, was in a meeting but would finish up soon and then he’d meet with us.  I overheard them talking about needing a camera.  I had my DSLR and offered to take some photos, and did so.

I asked if they had a business card so that I could email the photos. You should of seen my expression when the second man handed me his card and I realized it was John Sigler, President of the NRA. (So of course I got my picture taken too!)

Afterwards I hung out with Snowflakesinhell and and Bitter for a while.  Looking forward to seeing them again soon at the NRA Annual Meeting/Gun Bloggers Bash.

I’ve posted more photos up for those who want to see more…

Some have asked if they could download and repost the photos from the gallery. So I’ve provided a zip file (approx. 8 mb)
