Boise Gun Rally Report
Well, thought I would take a few minutes and report on the saturday gun rally in Boise.
The first thing that happened to me as I was walking up the capitol steps is that I was stopped at the entrance by a couple of guys from the event. Now get this----I could not take my "stick" into the building. My stick was holding my sign and I was informed by security that I could not picket inside the capitol. You can have a sign--you just can't have it attached to a stick. So apparently if a stick is attached to a sign, you are picketing. Yeah, well, whatever.
It was simply amazing to see the number of folks walking around armed at a gathering. There were "assault rifles' carried by the dozens and it seemed like most everyone was packing. Wow, and guess what? No one was shot. Imagine that.
We had a good turnout here in Idaho---I would estimate 600 to 800 or so but I was a little disappointed that there were not more. This is a HUGE issue and we all should do whatever we can--we cannot rest.
It was a very peaceful demonstration and somewhat informative although I couldn't hear much due to the speakers speaking without a mike. The event was actually held inside the Capitol in the rotunda area which was great as it was cold outside. I could not see any anti guns protesters but I am sure that they were there.
Keep your rights alive! Heres a couple of photos from the event and yours truly.
Oh, and I almost forgot----remember how the Capitol building in Wisconsin was trashed from the union protests and how the demonstrators were unruly? Well, here in Idaho, not one outburst and the building was spotless when everyone left.
