Restore The Constitution Firearms Carry Rally
Alexandria, Virginia –-(AmmoLand.com)- Mission: The mission of the “Restore the Constitution” rally is that it be held at a firearms carry-legal location as close to DC as possible and that it attracts as many participants as possible in order to underscore the seriousness and urgency of a simple message: Restore the Constitution!
What: “Restore the Constitution” rally/ Muster Outside D.C., held at a firearms carry location as close to DC as possible When: 9AM-5PM, April 19th, 2010 (monday), to commemorate the 235th anniversary of the first battle of the American Revolution Where: Ft. Hunt National Park, Northern VA Why: Ask yourself: “Is the Constitution really being followed anymore?”
Details: Staging area will be Ft. Hunt National Park, located about 12 miles south of DC. Participants will gather there, and a speaking program will be provided. From there, starting at 11:30, the gathering will travel in convoys up to Gravelly Point Park so that participants, organizers, and speakers can “step up to the edge.” Gravelly Point Park is right on the Potomac, about a mile from the National Mall in DC.
See the planning/ networking site, for updates and planning discussions on possible locations.
Muster Outside DC 4-19-2010
Scope: 4-19-10 rally at Gravelly Point Park, Virginia 10:30AM to 5 pm, although park hours are from 8 AM to dark. Gravelly Point is, based on research so far, the closest carry-legal location to DC, although Ft. Hunt will need to be the initial staging area and rendesvous point. Participants can arrive at Ft. Hunt as early as 9AM to get started, and the main speaking program will begin at 10AM, as the convoys begin going back and forth between Ft. Hunt and Gravelly Point. See home blog page for latest updates.
Target Audience: Unlike traditional protest rallies, the primary target audience of this rally will be those who already support the idea that the constitution needs restoring. If you’re reading this and you’re generally supportive so far, but probably won’t make the effort to attend, YOU are the primary target audience. Why target mainly those who already agree with you? To show that it can, in fact, be done and to improve our ability to hold a bigger, SECOND “Restore the Constitution” rally if any of us chose to do so.
Objective: 1. Unite as many as will come to the edge of Washington, D.C. to rally in support and defense of the Constitution of the United States of America and to stand, armed and united, with our brothers and sisters delivering the same basic message to our servant politicians in DC and in the state capitals. 2. Exercise our God given rights to assembly and freedom of speech (First Amendment) while simultaneously exercising the right to keep and bear arms (Second Amendments) 3. To show our elected servants in DC and the state capitals that we will not stand by idly while their corruption, dishonesty, and outright violations of our country’s founding principles destroy the American Republic 4. Receive media exposure through national press, special interest press organizations, and independent media sources. 5. To continue the networking between average Americans concerned about the future that has been happening over the past twenty years, as governmental power grew and individual freedoms shrank.
