…. About GUNS and your natural and Constitutional rights to bear them.
Ventura, California on Saturday, February 23rd, 2013
Californians will gather at the steps of City Hall in Ventura and commence a March at 11:30 a.m. down California Street and Main Street towards Mission Park, across the street from the San Buenaventura Mission, where we will assemble for a Public Meeting at NOON to Rally and Protest the efforts of the California State Legislature to impose a de facto repeal of the 2nd Amendment. Speakers will inform the activists attending the Rally on what they can do individually and collectively to combat these proposals and what we can do if the ban goes into effect. The organizers of the Ventura Day of Resistance will provide the people attending with the tools and organization they need in order to effect real change.
March starts at Ventura City Hall, 501 Pali Street.
Activist speakers  will headline, including:
  • Stewart Rhodes, Founder of Oathkeepers, activist, Yale Law School grad, former paratrooper
  • Peter Foy, Ventura County CA Supervisor, political activist
  • Nick Hankoff, Tenth Amendment Center Grassroots Coordinator
  • Brian Reilly, AZ Political Activist, Bd. Member Waking Up America
  • …. More TBA.
As mentioned in the earlier press release, People Protecting Freedom, a non-partisan Ventura-based grassroots organization, is sponsoring this local event as part of a coordinated national effort of DayofResistance.comDay of Resistance – Ventura County is organized by regular people in Ventura, Santa Barbara, Los Angeles, Orange and San Bernadino Counties, who are concerned about the loss of a fundamental civil liberty. It is an element of a larger effort to highlight the purpose and significance of the Second Amendment as the foundation of our other freedoms, stop further unconstitutional legislation and point out better methods of improving safety.
The event will be attended by diverse Second Amendment constituencies ranging over a wide geographic area and diverse in political spectrum. The activists attending the event will have a unique opportunity to learn about the the history of gun control in the United States and abroad, and how in almost every case firearms registrations, restrictions, and ultimately seizures have been to oppress minorities and institute authoritarian governance. Ultimately gun control always results in the restriction of other civil liberties as well as increased violent crime.
Attendees will learn about the recent legislative efforts by misguided representatives like State Senator Leland Yee and United States Senator Feinstein, as well as the recent infringements on their constitutionally guaranteed rights in the states of New York and Colorado. Both efforts have already had massive economic consequences for those states as well as further burdening law enforcement with prosecuting law abiding citizens for exercising their statutorily guaranteed liberties. The activists attending will learn what actions they can take in order to prevent a civil rights crisis from occurring in California and how they should prepare in the event that their rights are infringed upon.
The organizers of the event will provide a much needed opportunity to network as well as connect attendees with other civil rights-minded and pro-Second Amendment advocacy groups on what legal and legislative actions we are currently involved with and how the Constitution and past SCOTUS rulings unequivocally support the right of regular citizens to maintain proficiency and carry arms for their own protection, for the common defense, and to act as the final deterrent to authoritarian governance.
This February 23rd we join with long tradition of civil liberties minded Americans from all walks of life and stand up in union, allied in common cause with the love of freedom and its exercise thereof.
Please take the time to watch this short video which encompasses many of the issues that we are concerned that our representatives have lost sight of:

    Going to be attending a Rally on the 28th of Feb. here in the State of New York. Rally will be at the capitol in Albany NY. Recent NYS anti 2nd Amendment law passed here by our Gov. Cuomo, is the most Draconian law of all. Bans legitimate purchased semi-automatic rifles. (AR-15s and the like.) New law considers them as “assault Weapons,” and you have to register them with the State Police if you own one. No more than 7 rounds in any magazine. Back round checks for all ammo purchases. Renew pistol permits every 5 years. The New York Safe Act, it’s called. Clearly an attack on legal gun owners. We expect 10,000 at the rally so far. If we lose this fight here in New York, I will not stay in the State. Any comments or help would be great from anyone reading this. I served 26 years in the Army, fought in one war, I do not need this.

    I have been a hunter since I was fifteen. I was a law enforcement officer for forty years and Swore to up hold the Constitution of the United States which included the NY State Laws. None of these laws were passed over night without participation of other County and Local over views. You will see me on the bus at 4:45 AM with all the other true Americans. God Bless America
