Idaho – -(Ammoland.com)- Here is the link for local television news coverage of John Mackey's Oath Keeper “Gun Appreciation” rally in Coeur d' Alene, Idaho on Saturday, January 19, 2013.
John Mackey has been with Oath Keepers since our beginning, and has served in various offices at national level as well as with Nevada Oath Keepers and Idaho Oath Keepers. John tells me that he estimated about fifteen hundred attendees at the rally in Coeur d' Alene.
John's featured speaker at the rally was none other than Oath Keepers founder Stewart Rhodes
NOTE FROM STEWART: This event was a smashing success. With only one week notice, John Mackey and the rest of the crew in Idaho Oath Keepers put together a wonderful event, with an estimated 1,500 to 2,000 people in attendance at the busiest time of the rally. Most were open carrying pistols, and some were even open carrying semi-automatic rifles such as AR-15s (which is especially fitting, considering that such weapons are now being demonized and targeted by the hoplophobes).
Hats off to John, Scott, Dave, Joe, “Ranger Rick” and the rest of the NE Idaho chapter for their hard work. A special thank you also to Black Sheep Sporting Goods for hosting the rally on their property. It was also great to see Washington State Rep. Matt Shea, who is a shining example of what an oath keeping state legislator looks like.
