Rally in the Valley: "Day of Resistance"

In a copyright story from KTUU, Ch. 2 in Anchorage:

Day of Resistance, Wasilla

WASILLA, AK - Like most demonstrations, it included speeches and information tables, but what was unusual about the 'Day of Resistance' was those in attendance were openly carrying firearms of all shapes and sizes.

The Day of Resistance is an event among gun rights groups nationwide. It was started last year in response to gun legislation at a federal level.

... Most of the crowd of about 100 people carried some form of fire arm. From hand guns in side holsters to assault rifles slung in front, it was a place people felt comfortable carrying.

... Justin Giles explained that for him, owning guns protects his other rights too.

"It's a peaceful way we can have our fangs and be left alone," he said. They know not to take our first amendment or fifth or any of the others because we're armed, peacefully armed, but armed nonetheless."

I suspect you're right, Guffaw. I didn't know about it until this report appeared.

Rev. Paul,

We need to see more of these gatherings across the United States.

I agree, Sandy. Alaska's doing its part.
