AND IT WAS WONDERFUL
(Feb. 9, 2013) — Yesterday’s rally in Trenton, sponsored by the New Jersey Second Amendment Society, was one of the most rousing and exciting events I have seen in some time. It has renewed hope and refreshed my confidence that there are many good and great Americans who will not stand by and allow leftists and progressives to further destroy our liberty.
The weather could really not have been much worse. But no weather would have been capable of putting a damper on the enthusiasm which poured from in front of the State House.
The message was clear and resounding. Everyone of those NJ legislators, who cowered behind armed guards and snuggled in the warmth of their offices, heard the message. What was that message?
It goes something like this:
“You elitists, you political parasites, the cancerous infestation of the rights and liberty of honest, hardworking, law abiding citizens has gone far enough. It stops right here and it stops right now.”
It was difficult to get an exact count, but there seemed to be well over one thousand people who left the comfort of their homes, their work and their families to be at this rally. In the face of dire warnings of another super storm, this one which could have shut down roads and highways and possibly left them stranded, yet still they came.
There was also another unmistakable message:
“We the people will stand here, together and in unison, in this miserable weather and too, shall we will stand together, in unison, if you try to take away our right to protect ourselves.”
Just a bit of information some of you may not know. As early as next week, the NJ Legislature will try to pass an additional 43 new gun control laws. This on top of already the most unconstitutional laws anywhere in this country.
These new laws, if enacted, would make just about every weapon anyone in NJ owns, illegal. If you have any firearm, such as a revolver, which fires more than 5 rounds, which is just about 99% of every revolver owned, you will be required to turn it in.
This law gives authorities the right to search and seize, without court order, any firearm which can hold more than 5 rounds of ammunition. That would make every weapon which uses a magazine, as well as most shotguns and just about every rifle, illegal. Anyone not turning in those weapons will be listed and charged as felons.
At this point it is unclear as to where Governor Christie stands on this and if he will veto it if it gets through the legislature. He has said “I think New Jersey has enough gun laws”. (gee, ya think?) It is doubtful that, if the new laws reach his desk and he vetoes them, that there are enough liberal votes in the body to over ride it.
Over the next few days, your state Senators and your Assemblymen as well as Governor Christie need to hear from you. Write, call, email and text. Let them know that stopping this in the chambers of the State House will be much better for everyone than if the people need to stop it from the streets. Either way, it will be stopped.
The speakers yesterday were amazing. Every one of them. Please check out the pictures we took.
