GUN APPRECIATION DAY

OK, mark the date, for it will surely spark an outcry in the gun-control community. A coalition of gun rights and conservative groups have declared Jan. 19 to be Gun Appreciation Day and are urging Americans nationwide to visit local gun ranges and purveyors to show support for the Second Amendment. Yes, the date falls two days before President Obama's second inauguration, and yes, organizers say Gun Appreciation Day is expected to rival Chick-fil-A Day as a public statement of protest against government policies The Obama administration has shown that it is more than willing to trample the Constitution to impose its dictates upon the American people, says Larry Ward, president of Political Media Inc. and chairman of the event. If the American people don't fight back now, Obama will do to the Second Amendment what he has already done to the First with Obamacare. Gut it without a moment's thought to our basic constitutional rights. Mr. Ward has support from Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, Second Amendment Foundation, Special Operations Speaks, Revolution PAC, Citizens and Country, Social Security Institute, Committee to Draft Judge Andrew Napolitano, Conservative Action Alerts, Women Warriors PAC and Conservative Action Fund, with more to come.See their bodacious outreach here: gunappreciationday.com
