Protest the opening of The Nation's Gun Show!


December 27, 2012

Dear Supporter,

This December 28-30, after a series of tragic shootings that have occurred throughout the country, the Dulles Expo Center in Virginia will be hosting The Nation's Gun Show. This gun show will provide easy access to guns in an already increasing market. Join us to protest the opening of The Nation's Gun Show and call for reasonable restrictions on guns, including a ban on assault weapons, and for adequate background checks on all gun sales.

Protest at opening of The Nation’s Gun Show
TOMORROW, Friday, December 28 from 3-5pm
Dulles Expo Center
4320 Chantilly Shopping Center, Chantilly, VA 20153

This event is 22 miles from Washington, DC. Directions: take I-66 W, exit 53B for VA-28 N, keep R at the fork to stay on VA-28 N, exit Willard Rd, turn right onto Willard Rd, take 2nd L into the Chantilly Shopping Center, follow signs to Expo Center.

Sponsored by CODEPINK, Veterans for Peace and MoveOn.

For more info email Medea Benjamin, or call her at 415-235-6517. Rides available.

Together we can help America become a safer society.

Peace,
Alli, Joan, Medea, Mobbie, Tighe, and CODEPINK DC

I'm not actually on their contact list, just came across the news on another forum and figured I'd spread the word.

Any chances they will spit on people who show up, or is the VSP gonna keep them pushed back to a distance?

That's funny. "adequate background checks" I go to that show all the time. They have a trooper there on hand that all the booths report to for nothing other than background checks. I'll be there now that i know they will be and smile / wave when i walk by with a couple new pmags.

While not a HTF member...

Heard about it this morning on SiriusXM that the Professional Left will be there. This will get ugly on their part, pray you guys don't get into with these folks.

I'm sure there will be a larger local PD presence to control the tards. I think the main problem will be them inserting "sleepers" who then act the fool in the show. I imagine the venue will quickly decide not to sell tickets to obvious antis.

Yup. Isn't spitting on someone considered an assault?

I was unaware that the left was capable of being professional.

You Monster! Bringing children to a gunshow, how dare you!

I can't think of a better response to these idiots than......

smile, say "May God bless you.", and walk away. Their OODA loop will be short circuited in milliseconds.

I'm debating going this afternoon with all 3 of my kids....I may walk extra close to the protestors just so they can see my daughter in her stroller


I figure the boys can help carry stuff and the stroller will be a good cattle guard to push people out of the way

Don't forget that Code Pink gave logistics support to AQ and the like during the Battle of Fallujah.

They are traitors.

All 6 of them out front, with about 20 cops around them. Pretty funny, the woman on the megaphone was complaining about 100 round clips and everyone started laughing at her.

Take plenty of photos of them.

They like that.

There were more cameramen filming them than there were protestors.

Glad they were blocking up the already overcrowded parking lot.

They started over by Walmart and kept chanting "stop killing our kids" "the blood is on your hands". I was right there when a guy stopped his car ,rolled down his window and said "shut up.... you moron". I laughed so hard. Then the pink pants protestor turn around to the FC cop and said "are you going to do somthing?" He just laughted at him....
