Attention all defenders of the 2nd Amendment;

They are trying to RAM these bills through

WE MUST STOP THEM!!!

I was just alerted that there is a Rally being sponsored by the RI 2nd Amendment Coalition on the Smith Street (North) Side of the RI State House from 2pm to 4pm on Wednesday, May 1st before everyone goes in to testify AGAINST the anti-2ND Amendment Bills, and IN FAVOR of the PRO-2ND Amendment Bills.

Let your boss know ASAP that you MUST HAVE Wednesday May 1st afternoon OFF FROM WORK – this may be one of the most important days for the future of our state.

Our very liberties are on the line and unless we want to end up like CT, MD, CO, Chicago, Washington D.C. Etc. we need to plan to RALLY the State House and we need to testify at the hearings being held in the Senate on Thursday 4/25/13, and in the House on Wednesday 5/1/13.

TELL YOUR FRIENDS – EMAIL EVERYONE YOU KNOW – CARPOOL TO THE STATE HOUSE

DO WHATEVER YOU MUST TO BE THERE AND TELL THEM WHAT YOU THINK!

NOTICE:

As always, dress, speak and behave professionally and courteously. Do not bring any firearms.  Do not make any potentially offensive signs. If you’re coming straight from work, come in your work clothes – no matter what they look like. We want them to know that we are all regular people who are everyday Rhode Islanders who will not lay down our rights at the feet of tyranny!
