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!”
