I am looking forward to a follow-up event, and for those who did not go and only criticize, come on out and fix it.

Yep. The acoustics from the shape of the Capitol were impressive even if it was "only" 3500 people, and it didn't look to me that all 3500 were there then. She was a great motivating speaker, and she was spot on - that's not really "us" so getting that response was quite a feat. It would have been cool if that theme was carried on by more of the other speakers, but I guess they had prepared their notes without consulting each other.

ETA - anyone else notice the Capitol Police eyeballing us with binos?

Thank you to everyone who was able to attend. I did the on line stream after the event and think it is a good start. The speakers were articulate and credible. While I understand the criticism that it was not an event with 100, 000 people there with multiple congresspeople speaking I think that perspective is unrealistic and minimizes the work of those who participated in any way.
There is no perfect, totally sculpted way to do something like this, and I think it was a good start so Thank You.

I'm glad I attended. It was good to meet Lug1 and other members. The speakers were good, the organizers kept the pace moving, and the weather cooperated. Even the drive up and home was pleasant. Next year, I'll bring a couple folks with me.

Paperwork issues.

There is uncertainty if it was dropped on Nick's side, or placed in the circular file cabinet when it landed at the courthouse. That's from friends of mine more plugged into the campaign gossip than me, so take it for what it's worth.

Extremely disappointing Maj didn't get in.

At least I got to vote for him, the fact I got to do that here is a step in the right direction.

I watched the whole thing live on the computer. I don't consider myself steeped in the current gun culture and I have to admit I have never heard of most of the speakers. I know it was a strictly 2nd A rally but perhaps if it was also about vets we would get some crossover attendees and draw some better well known (to me ) speakers. Hell, Sylvan and Gunwtr was more well known names than some of those people.

One of the last things Pres Clinton did before walking out the door was to swap the licence plates on the presidential limo to the DC "Taxation without Representation" plates.

You can say that again. Its going to be bad here - we have some real retards going to Richmond. One guy, Joe Morrissey, is a disgraced attorney who has done jail time but people keep voting him in. The real problem is our people will not go vote if only to vote against these monsters - they think they are too principled to vote for the lessor of two evils. It drives me up the wall. There was no Republican opposition to Morrissey but an independent did get on the ballot and did pretty well but not enough by far.

That's what I think. You see the other side hasn't.

Win & Virginia & transition to making plans for Texas the next day. If you think it can't happen you're head is in the sand.

We don't just need a 1 day thing in DC. I think we need something on the 2nd of every month leading up to Nov. We need time to get our shit together.
We've got to figure out how to start doing that. We don't know how to organize. DC's rally's disappointing attendance proved that.

11 simple events (nope no idea what need your help figuring that out)

Things that everyone can do fairly local to them.
Where we all try to go out on the same day & do the same thing........ Start simple get people involved..... build momentum......Build up to numbers & events the media begs to cover
This is what grass roots looks like. Yeah it sounds stupid. Fight club with 2 guys in a parking lot is a fight. Fight club happening in 20 cities at the same time is something different.

Just spit balling & I'm open to any & all criticism ...... the one thing we can't do at this point is Nothing

I like the idea of doing something on the 2nd of every month.

At a minimum, we could flood social media with pro-gun news stories.
