12 Noon – 6:00 PM

On the Annapolis Waterfront

Sign up for the latest information and updates at
and follow the discussion here

Purpose: To have a large, completely peaceful and unarmed gathering of supporters of Maryland “Shall Issue” and 2nd Amendment rights. We will be wearing empty holsters in protest of the current “Discretionary Issue” system that sees Handgun Carry Permits issued only to those politically connected or dealing in extraordinarily large amounts of physical cash, or the occasional person who can meet the high burden of proof needed to receive one for self defense.

How to Participate: The intent is to have a nice day with the family and friends, while wearing in plain sight, an empty holster. You will know others participating in the protest by their open holsters. Join us at the MSI Open Holster Rally Information Booth, located at the Annapolis Waterfront (by the Market House and the City Dock).  Stop by, introduce yourself and make new friends.

Basic Safety Rules: All holsters must remain empty at all times. Do not put toy guns, training guns or the like in your holster. We want to emphasize the emptiness of the holsters and our lack of protection. The holster will simply be a fashion accessory, symbolizing our vulnerability to criminals.

Long Term: The plan is to build on each Open Holster Day Rally, gathering more protesters each time, to take the protest to the next “Shall Issue" bill hearing and any bills that concern on our 2nd Amendment Rights.

I hope you all aren't leaving all the work for me to do by myself!

Saturday is approaching and we need the help of our fellow gun owners to help direct the tone of the November election and the 2011 Maryland General Assembly.

Please come out and help us show a united front.

See you in Annapolis this Saturday from Noon to 6PM.

Bump for a good cause.

Daughter's 2nd birthday party is that day & I have to corral toddlers & serve cake; but will be with you in spirit.  Hope there is a large turn out!
