Wisconsin Guns Across America event

Today I dragged myself out of bed to drive down to Madison for the Guns Across America event being held at the capital. I took some photos and some video. The video will have to wait for tomorrow as I need to change the format in order to get it uploaded in a reasonable amount of time, but the photos I can share now.
Her sign reads, and correctly so might I add:"Rights are not gifts from the government"

The ambiance, while friendly and polite, was not the same as the cheerful boisterous gatherings put on by the TEA party, no. These were the people who have the vision to see what's coming if we do not preserve the 2nd amendment. they were grim and steadfast.

Don Pridemore - running for State DPI superintendent
There was a bit of remorse over what we have allowed the enemies of this nation to do to our children because we have allowed them to infiltrate our schools and capture the minds and hearts of our children nearly without opposition. But that can be remedied.

This is not a conservative, liberal, GOP or democrat issue. This is a Rule of Law issue and every American citizen needs to understand that if the 2nd amendment can be usurped by the oathbreakers in DC, then we are living under nothing more than a soft tyranny, soon to be replaced with a hard tyranny. (Don't believe me? For those who were foolish enough to trust Ms. pelosi - wait until you see what's in obamacare. You won't be waiting long. Think you're safe because you can afford a "Cadillac plan"? I hope you can afford the 40% penalty on it too. But that's going to be the least of your worries.)

If we do not remove these oathbreakers, then we and our children and our grandchildren along with the rest of the world will revile us, and rightly so, as the generation that failed to preserve the last best hope of freedom in the world. I hope, that with God's will - and I hope that we, as a nation can regain God's good will towards us - we can avert the looming destruction of this nation.

As I approached, I couldn't help but notice that the great majority of the people were avoiding the lawn. (Good thing too because it was unseasonably warm-a blessing perhaps on the event. ) Once again, responsible people act responsibly.

I have no idea what this guy's sign said, he was moving too fast for me, but thought the Guy Fawkes mask was worth showing.

In the end, it's not about party or philosophy. It's about Liberty.

"He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city." ~ Proverbs 16:32

Great pics. My favorite sign is the one that asks if the 1st Amendment applies only to quills and presses.

Thank you Bigfoot. Ive been reviewing my video footage and I'm thinking there are better ones out there, so I may wait until tomorrow and embed the best of those and then use mine for anyone that didn't get covered-if I have them. I have a great camera, but I'm short and a long lens with a monopod in a crowd makes for some jitters.
