Countering the political exploitation of the Sandy Hook tragedy, firearms rights activists and conservative groups have joined in an effort to demonstrate the continued public support for firearms ownership and Second Amendment sovereignty.
We have designated Saturday, Jan. 19, as Gun Appreciation Day across the United States, and we are encouraging American gun owners to participate. Visit our website at GunAppreciationDay.com, learn more about this event and sign our petition supporting the Second Amendment.
In the wake of the heartbreaking Connecticut tragedy, all manner of extremist gun prohibition measures have been revived and re-packaged as part of a long-standing agenda to adopt the most restrictive firearms laws and regulations possible. Despite these efforts, a recent Gallup poll taken after Sandy Hook shows a majority of Americans still do not support a ban on so-called “assault weapons” or legislation that would be detrimental to handgun ownership.
The Washington Times is hand delivered and read by every U.S. Senate and Congressional office as well as key public opinion leaders in our nation’s capital.
