AZ: “Million Gun March” on Phoenix April 19: "It looks like Arizona will have its own ‘Second Amendment March’ on Monday, April 19, to coordinate with the massive gun-rights rally expected in Washington D.C. … What I hear is that a lot of people are planning to take their safely holstered sidearms out for a walk to the state capital from High Noon to 2 p.m. No one is organizing this thing, it’s pure grass roots, no speechifying, no sound stage, just brown bag lunches on the lawn.”

Vitriol approaching fever pitch as gun rights march looms: "If one believed all of the vitriol that has been, and is being generated against the upcoming Second Amendment March in Washington, D.C. next Monday, April 19, one might expect a parade of gun-toting Klansmen marching down Pennsylvania Avenue. It appears to be an unfortunate aspect of life in America that one cannot simply engage in a rational conversation on a hot political topic. Civility has been replaced by the politics of destruction, and nowhere is this more evident than in the mounting criticism of the upcoming rally.”

If 2nd Amendment rallies are “threat to the rule of law,” then “rule of law” needs threatening: "Yesterday, National Gun Rights Examiner David Codrea reported that Josh Horwitz, of the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence (CSGV) has described him as a ‘threat to the rule of law.’ You really need to read David’s article — I promise it will be well worth the time, and I’ll be waiting here, when you get back. … OK — so now you know what what makes David so ‘dangerous,’ according to Horwitz. It’s that he reminded enthusiastically statist journalist Ted Rall that sending American citizens — who have broken no laws — to be tortured, is likely to provoke a forceful reaction from the citizenry.”

Don’t deprive the vulnerable of their right to own firearms: "A group of state lawmakers recently authored a letter supporting three Delaware public housing authorities in banning gun possession on their premises. Regulations to prevent public housing residents from legally possessing firearms in their own homes have been struck down in federal courts elsewhere, largely on the grounds that law-abiding citizens should not be denied their Second Amendment rights based on their address or their socio-economic status. In their letter, the legislators noted that seniors and those with disabilities often live in public housing. We believe these vulnerable citizens should not be deprived of a means of self-defense.”
