National Exercise Your Rights Day Update

As Jeff Knox of the Firearms Coalition states:

Are you ready?
Have you saved up some money?

Have you notified your clubs and friends?

Have you made sure your local gun stores know about National Exercise Your Rights Day so they can promote it and offer special discounts?

Have you made plans to join friends at the range?

Have you begun drafting your message to your legislators?

The Reverend Jesse Jackson is joining in the celebration of National Exercise Your Rights Day though the good Reverend is only planning to exercise his First Amendment right, he can rest assured that those of us exercising our First and Second Amendment rights will stand ready to defend ALL of his rights.
August 28th is only a week away. JJ has protest scheduled in 25 different cities, what do we have?

Contact each and every retailer who has sold you a gun or even the smallest of firearm accessories and let them know what we are attempting. This is a great opportunity to make a statement that echoes off of Capitol Hill and lets our legislators know that we are a force to be reckoned with. Or, we could just let JJ carry the day. It is totally up to us.

Purchase a firearm, ammo or accessory. Go shooting. Take a friend shooting. Write a letter to the editor of your local paper. Write your legislator. Join GOA, the NRA or a local gun rights organization. Do something pro-active on this one day, and let everyone know what you did.

David over at The War on Guns has some flyers to hand out to retailers and other shooters.

Thanks for the post and publicity. I couldn't have said it better myself. I've got Billings, MT covered as far as the Big retailers. Tomorrow, my co-workers and I will be spreading the word amongst the pawn shops. And, we'll see if the Billings Gazette publishes my 'letter to the editor' that was shamelessly pilfered from Mr. Codrea over at 'War On Guns. Once again...THANKS.
