Ok Virginians, now that you had fun on BRD, who's willing to come to DC to help make sure you can keep 'em?

gotm4 and I are planning to attend this event. Anyone else up for it? We are planning on taking the metro from Springfield into DC.

Alexandra (wife & SAS member) and myself are also planning to attend.

We have the same idea as 9x19, will be driving from Richmond to Springfield and then take the metro in.

See you all there. I'd like to see everyone that was at the VA BRD and the VA Machinegun shoot make this event.

Just an observation, but when an anouncement goes up to sling lead people are all over it. But when an announcement goes out to stand up and be counted in the struggle to preserve your rights.....the silence is shocking........

I would love to attend but can't due to work.

Here's the map from Metro Rail starting at Franconia-Springfield station. We need to take the blue line to either Metro Center, Federal Triangle or the Smithsonian. I think Metro Center and Federal Triangle stops are the closest.

Train schedules are here on page four of this PDF www.wmata.com/timetables/rail/Weekend_july_03.pdf

How true, lucky for me it is on a Sunday and it is my only day off now.

9x19 & gotm4, please email me with your contact info such as email and cell phone. My wife and I want to make sure we hook up with the two of you in DC for the rally. My wife, Alexandra really enjoyed finally finding another woman that enjoys shooting as much as you do! Thanks for your company at the Machinegun Shoot. We hope to be able to meet with the two of you in the future!

Hey, I may plan to make the drive up! I'll have to check on a few things first but I don't see why I couldn't make it.

gotM4 & 9x19, can I park at your house and take the metro with you?

Count me in!

It's great to see the postive responses!

I see nothing wrong with supporting RKBA but once again we would be the counter protesters. Nobody will notice and the amount of people who come will be lumped together to get their count higher.

It would be nice to have RKBA as the primary reason.

Well Steve, I'll be the first to admit that sending hot lead downrange is a whole lot more fun than spending a Sunday - and holiday to boot - in a victim disarmament zone getting spat on and cussed at by thousands of irrational women...

but not by much.

Yes, at the first event in 2000 gun owners were on the receiving end of some rather nasty treatment by the supposedly peace-loving, non-violent, kum-ba-ya crowd. I'm kinda looking forward to Round II. But then, I've been told I'm not normal.

My wife, 4 1/2 year old daughter, and myself will be there Bubbles.

I can't understand why one woman would want to spit on another woman, doesn't show much in the way of intellect. As a man, being surrounded by spitting irrational women does scare me...hahahahaha. Anyway looking forward to bring the family out in support.

P.S. My earlier post was an attempt at some psy-ops to get people interested, if it worked on one person I'm happy.

A few thoughts on our trip to Washington, D.C., if anyone has a cam to bring for recording posture of our counter protesters this would be excellent.

If anyone was to become none plus with us it would be on cam and we could use it to show how peaceful the mothers against violence can be.

Hehehe... a bit of intel... the other side has substantially reduced the turnout number on their permit. It's low enough that if just the pro-gunners from the 2000 opposition rally showed up, we'd outnumber them.
