For NH Residents...

Looks like y'all are about to be invaded by astroturf again...

Anti-gun rally planned for Saturday August 3rd in Nashua -- let's POLITELY tell them they're wrong!
The Obama "Organizing for Action" people will hold an anti-gun rally this Saturday, August 3, from noon to 1:00 p.m., at the Nashua City Hall Plaza (229 Main St., Nashua). In particular, this is another nationally-funded political effort to discredit Kelly Ayotte and other Republican US Senators for their SUCCESSFUL vote in the US Senate against federal gun control. They claim that most NH voters are anti-gun!
Now, ironically enough, a good chunk of the NH crew will be in NH (near the MA border, chuckle of chuckles) having some fun at the Sixth Annual Northeast Bloggershoot. Ordinarily, I'd be all up for showing up - OCing, even - except that the shoot will have just have gotten underway. Given the normal levels of participation in these "grass roots" events (I can't type that without snickering), I think if the NEBS crew were to show up in Nashua en masse we'd probably outnumber the "protestops" three or four to one. Maybe more.

So, if you're in the area and not attending the NEBS (or if you want to swing by after!), stop by Nashua and point and laugh at the astroturf.

That is all.

Thanks to Rich for sending this in...

So the location of the Sooper Sekrit Range has changed to the Nashua City Hall Plaza? Let me just bring up Google Maps and......

What? You all think that these "Useful Fools" wouldn't send US to the Gulag if they ever got the chance?

Sigh! Another Target Rich Environment declared Off- Limits....

Oh good. I was afraid I'd miss the rabid anti-gun sentiment of New York while I'm in New Hampshire this weekend.

Makes me really want to try to finish this holster for the Ruger Blackhawk before the Bloggershoot. If I'm going to open carry, "go big or go home" seems like a good idea.

Phoo, it'd almost be worth it to crash their party this weekend and skip the blog shoot!

Damn, I miss ALL the fun... sigh

Okay, just for fun -- if you DID skip the BloggerShoot opening ceremonies, to go scare a few AstroTurfers, what (out of what you were planning to bring anyway) would you OC?

I won't be able to make it, darn it... but it would have been fun to show up with a fully-loaded AR-15 (slung over the shoulder, of course), and my Sig P220 in its Dragon Leatherworks holster with the Gadsen flag.

Daniel: I think I'd take the Blackhawk. It's big enough to be visible but not so big as to appear like I'm looking for trouble. "An elegant weapon from a more civilized age" and all that.

But I wouldn't go to scare the anti-gunners. I'd go to show them that a gun owner can disagree with them in a civilized manner.

Wandering Neurons said...

Intimidate the anti-gunners? That's a tough decision. Either the SPAS 12 or the L1A1 over the shoulder, and an old .45 race-gun I've got, probably.

I'd go with Dave H -- really, the point is to win hearts and minds from outside the PSH Circle.

Going all Leonard Embody isn't the way. Too easily cut & spliced into appearing on the news the way we perceived the New Black Panthers in Philadelphia.

Carrying longarms and the like is counterproductive, in other words.

Discrete OC, then pay the gun no more mind than you would a cell phone pouch or a lady would her purse in a crowd.

Normalize wearing a weapon in public -- not in your face activism. Leave the hysterics to the hysterical, and let them make themsleves into the public of panic stricken totalitarians they actually are in their hearts.

"public image", darnit.
