‘Guns Across America’: Florida joins peaceful national protest

The following announcement is being circulated to Floridians to coincide with a national day of support for Second Amendment rights. “Guns Across America” is an event scheduled to take place on Saturday, Jan 19th, at noon in front of state Capitol buildings across the U.S..

Eric Reed, a Texas resident and full-time airline captain, is responsible for organizing the event. Reed runs the site  “Gun Control = More Crime,” but considers himself an ordinary American, said examiner.com writer Lori Stacey. Stacey contacted the self-proclaimed family man by email and asked about his goals for the event. Reed responded with the following:

“I’m saddened with the direction our country is heading. I keep hearing about new restrictive gun legislation and a possible executive order. The restrictions our congress is considering implementing are infringing on our basic Second Amendment rights and I feel that somebody must take a stand. Time is crucial! I felt if we could get “mass numbers” of Americans out for a peaceful rally for gun rights, our nation’s elected officials (who work for us) will have to take notice.”

Reed has confirmed 42 states will be participating so far. He hopes to send a “clear and resounding message” to the country’s leaders.

“Gun control equals more crime. This has been factually proven time and time again, said Reed. “We already have copious amounts of gun laws on the books. We don’t need any more. The American people will be heard. NO NEW GUN RESTRICTIONS!”

    What about "shall not be infringed" do they not understand. The founding fathers knew this day was coming. They knew if a tyrant or tyrants got into power the people would need a way to get our country back from the tyranny. With more than one gun per person legally owned , what these communists are trying to do is going to be impossible. Most states don't have gun registration and there is a good reason for it. The government has no need to know what we own.

      "This day" the founding fathers knew was coming hasn't come yet. So far both sides are just pretending to rattle the sabres. Actuall sabre-rattling is a few weeks or months off. Then they will get down to business, because "these communists" have been planning this for a long time and they will not be deterred by courts, by public opi9nion, by Congress, or by the people. Know that death is coming on a pale horse, and hell is riding with him. Better be ready to do more than talk.

        Great example of why we need far tougher gun control laws – or serious mental health screening. "Communists?". Really?

      • TriCornerHat

        Most of us are ready to do more than talk I am thinking they will have 18 to 25 year olds on orders from fema or some other from our own county's thinking we well just give every gun up because they are just following orders just like the natzis would say.

    Lets get this over with once and for all… I want you to try come and get my guns.. I live for that day..I rule the day you come for me…

    GUN CONTROL DICTATOR STYLE

    “All political power comes from the barrel of a gun. The communist party must command all the guns, that way, no guns can ever be used to command the party.” — Mao … READ MORE: http://bwcentral.org/2013/01/gun-control-dictator

    You don't need assault weapons. You are not a soldier, unless you are. Even then they don't carry their weapons around with them to the mall, or Chucky Cheeses. This comes down some sort of gun desire. As far as coming to take your guns. You would hand it over quicker than snot. One look out the window at a military squad or SWAT and you'd blather and fall to the ground saying that those guns were'nt yours. All this dictator and communist talk is plain butt gas. Get your representative to charge the president. Impreach him or get working together with other citizens to get this country's problems fixed. If you look at who is being destructive to the national effort, look in the mirror. Just saying…

  • Joe Masotti

    I'm confused. The article states that the rallyes are being held at the State Capitols, yet the facebook page says "Hernando County Fairgrounds."

    • Bigbare

      Joe the Official 2nd Amendment Rally for Florida has been relocated to the Fairgrounds

      in Brooksville, Hernando County because it is more centrally located. Many central and South Fl.

      patriots said they would love to attend but Tallahassee was to far to travel because of drive time

      and gas prices.
