Don’t miss the March 26th gun owner rally in Trenton sponsored by ANJRPC and NRA. A large turnout is expected. At the rally, we will hear from Second Amendment leaders, pro-gun public officials, and other notable speakers.
It’s time for gun owners to speak with one thunderous voice and let lawmakers know we are watching, we are not going away, and we are going to resist legislation that targets gun rights instead of gun criminals every step of the way. Get ready to make history with us!
Date: Monday March 26, 2018
Time: 9:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. (approx.)
Place: Trenton War Memorial, 1 Memorial Drive, Trenton, NJ 08608. Alternate address for GPS: 1 West Lafayette Street, Trenton, NJ 08608.
We will assemble on and around the main steps, located on Barrack Street between Memorial Drive and Lafayette Street.
Weather: Rain or shine. Be prepared and dress appropriately for all weather conditions.
Parking: The closest parking is at the Lafayette Garage (hotel parking), 1 West Lafayette Street. Other nearby garages include the Trenton Parking Authority,110 N. Warren Street, and the Trenton Parking Authority, E. Front Street between N. Warren and Broad Streets. Click here for additional parking options. Plan to arrive extra early, as Trenton is expected to be jam-packed that day.
Public Transportation: Direct rail service to Trenton is provided by both NJ Transit (1-800-582-5946) and Amtrak (1-800-872-7245). NJ Transit also provides bus service to and within the Trenton area (many buses stop at the WarMemorial, 1 block from the State House; others stop at the train station). From the train station, you can either take a cab, or it’s a 15-minute walk to the War Memorial – please plan the route ahead of time if you are taking public transportation and plan on walking!
ANJRPC Buses: ANJRPC is providing a limited number of buses from key locations around NJ. Click here to be redirected to a page (set up by our friends at Gun For Hire) where you can register for one of the ANJRPC buses. To cover a portion of the high cost of chartering the buses, a $10 donation will be collected from each passenger. Note: registration is on a first come, first served basis, seating is limited and cannot be guaranteed, and bus locations are subject to change or cancellation. Additionally, buses leaving Trenton after the rally are anticipated to depart mid-afternoon. There will be additional updates for bus registrants as we get closer to March 26.
Nearby Restaurants & Hotels: Click here for a list of restaurants and hotels in the area. There is also a cafeteria inside the State House Annex called Café NJ, and other nearby restaurants include Smoke House Bar-B-Q, 11 W. Front Street, Trenton (609-695-1911). We also think it’s a good idea for you to plan ahead and have some snacks with you at the rally in case you get hungry or thirsty.
Bathrooms: There will be porta-potties on site, but they may be challenging to access if more people attend the rally than anticipated, and we will not have access to the inside of the War Memorial due to another function there that day. Make sure you use other rest rooms immediately before the rally, and be prepared for the possibility that you might have to wait until the rally breaks up to use the restroom again.
Signage: The only restriction on any signage you might wish to bring is that it cannot be mounted to sticks or posts. That is a NJ State Police requirement, not ours.
Sales Prohibited: No items can be offered for sale at the rally. Again, that is a NJ State Police requirement, not ours.
Antagonists & Hecklers: If anti-gun hecklers and antagonists attempt to disrupt our rally, do not physically engage with them – that is the job of law enforcement. We are there to make a statement – keep your focus on the mission and don’t take the bait. Media will be watching.
For those going to the State House after the rally: After the rally ends, you may choose to go to the State House on your own to stop in to the Assembly or Senate galleries to observe legislator voting. Please note the following:
– This activity is not part of the rally and is on your own.
– The State House is going to be very crowded that day and seating in the galleries is extremely limited and cannot be guaranteed. If you do get a seat, you might lose it if you leave it (even to go to the bathroom).
– The voting sessions may not actually begin until after 2:00 pm and could go into the evening (but to get a seat, you’ll probably need to arrive much earlier than that).
– If you plan on staying for several hours, we advise that you eat right after the rally and before heading to the galleries.
– You will have to go through metal detectors to get into the State House, and will be subject to search.
Please watch for additional updates and alerts on the rally.
LET’S SHOW UP IN FORCE!
