    There is going to be a rally at the Connecticut State Capitol.

    When:
    Saturday April 5, 2014
    Noon - 3:00 PM

    http://www.ccdl.us/

    At least one group in Massachusetts has organized a bus. I'm thinking of heading down.

    For those who have yet been informed, Chris Pinto and I started a bus list for the Connecticut gun rights rally in Hartford for Saturday, April 5th.

    Please let me know if anyone is interested. Pass the word around. We have 13 people who are on the list and we need 40 people for a good turnout. The fee with 40 will be ~$10.00 PP.

    The bus will be scheduled to leave the Solomon pond mall area around 10:15 AM and working out a second pick up for those who live further west of Worcester (around rts. 84/20).

    Returning from Hartford around 2:30 PM.

    Thanks,

    Ralph

    If I wasn't working that day I'd be in. I hope you get a good turnout.

    For the rest of you, April 5th is a Saturday!

    Yes, I know, some people have to work on Saturday. But those of you who don't might want to come down to CT and join the fight against tyranny.

    The usual challenge. Hold it on a weekday and no one can attend. Hold it on a weekend and the reps aren't there. Since the reps don't listen anyway, I say hold it when pro-2A people can attend!

    Regular press? Meh. But the "other press" AKA YouTube and so on will be there. If my YouTube subscriptions are any indication, the country is paying attention to CT. I understand the channels I watch may be slightly slanted toward the right so this is not a scientific conclusion by any definition.

    Anybody from the other Western MA interested in a carpool / caravan?

    If you can't make the trip like myself, at least donate to CCDL. I did a week or so ago as well as Connecticut Carry. These outfits need money. We all need to help. The battle is on....

    That message was from Ralph with the Second Amendment Defense Alliance. There are several of us that are spreading the word on this event. We are hoping to show a lot of MA support for our Ct brothers and sisters.

    There is going to be a few busses going down - 1-2 from Western Mass, 1 from Worcester. There may be more added as interest allows.

    I will be going, and can take a couple in my vehicle. Anyone from the North Attleboro area that is interested, send me a PM, we can work out some details in the next little bit.

    Screw the capitol building, figure out where the governor lives and drop a couple thousand people on his lawn. The time for playing nice has passed.

    this, i will probably go as i have gone to all the other rallies, and testified at both hearings, and confronted all the legislators personally that i could... but ccdl got a permit to protest in front of an unoccupied building, not exactly my idea of standing up to the man.

    Governor's Mansion is located on the Northeast corner of the Jct of Asylum & Prospect Av in Hartford. Whole block is security fenced with cameras & guarded by plain clothes Troopers, no lawn to stand on.

    Can you define Western MA? I'm not trying to be an "I'm more west that you" fight, I just want to know if I'd have to drive 45 minutes to ride a bus for 45 minutes.

    With all that security, the governor must be a 2A fan. [rolleyes]
