Counter-Protest The Antigun Rally in Newtown!

According to a letter recently published in The Newtown Bee, the antigun crowd is planning another protest for Monday, January 18th, in front of the headquarters for the National Shooting Sports Foundation. In part it appears they are protesting the NSSF’s Project ChildSafe. For the life of me I can’t figure out why people who claim they aren’t actually anti-gun but just pro gun safety would oppose an actual, effective gun safety program is beyond me.
I would think if they really wanted to stop the violence and promote gun safety they should protest in front of a drug gang’s headquarters or in a high crime neighborhood. I can only guess it’s because we’re safe and law-abiding gun owners and the NSSF is located in a nice suburban neighborhood, and drug dealers are scary  criminals and hang out in the bad part of the big city?

Whatever their reasons, they say they are speaking for all of us. We need you to show up and show them that’s not the case. Connecticut has a large number of legal gun owners. We’ll be meeting in front of the NSSF headquarters at 3:30pm, located right off rt 25 at 11 Mile Hill Rd, Newtown. Parking is tough, but you can park behind the Reed School, by the soccer and baseball fields on Old Farm Rd (see map below). DO NOT PARK on Tinkerfield Rd. Any crossing of Mile Hill Rd. is prohibited, except up by Reed School where you park.
Remember you are technically parking on school grounds.

  • Bring Pro2A signs.
  • Bring American flags.
  • Bring a sign thanking the NSSF for what they do.
  • BE RESPECTFUL AND POLITE! Don’t let someone goad you into an argument or fight. Remember the media will be there.

  1. I would suggest that if parking on school property that you are reminded of the laws about possession of a weapon within school property. This town is very gun shy.

  2. I would be neither respectful or polite to folks who want to tread on my RKBA. These people and legislators and other gov’t officials cannot change my rights; they can only try to prevent people from exercising the right (the right to keep and bear arms is always present ~ its just that tyrants want to impose their will on you by force not to exercise your rights). And if Newtown was so concerned about their kids they would have removed all the top to bottom glass panels in their buildings, which did not. They don’t care about their kids ~ the gov’t officials are to blame for those DEC 12 shootings IMO.
