Mark your calendar. On Jan. 19, two days before President Obama is inaugurated and a day before Sen. Dianne Feinstein is expected to introduce an assault weapons ban, a Gun Appreciation Day has been called in the U.S.

Organizers are asking folks to go into their local gun shop and wave a flag or a “Hands Off Our Guns” sign or just brandish a copy of the Constitution. With 300 million guns in the U.S., there should be more than enough people ready to participate.

Call or fax your congressman/woman and demand that they stop the Obama-gun-confiscation and demand ALL elected protect and abide by the United States Constitution....as it is becoming abundantly clear, Obama's obsession with a weak America means a Disarmed America....dismantling our economy is apparently not enough....... Tell Congress to do their JOB!

Quick note: So far, no major political action has suggested “disarming” anyone. Not with 300 million weapons out there. Besides, Obama barely mentioned gun control in his first term. What we’re likely to see from Washington — if anything — is a tinkering at the edges of gun control unless something drastic changes in the political dynamics there.

Personally, I don't believe Joe has a firm grasp of the topic on which he writes.

Jan. 19 is Robert E Lee’s birthday.

Which flag should I bring?

Also if you know anyone who is not an NRA member make an all out effort to sign them up. Just $25 for a one year membership. Right now life members can sign others up with a Lifetime membership for just $300. So please get on the phone and add new members lets show the Obama administration what they will have to contend with.

I keep seeing the 300 million (give or take) number of firearms in the possession of US citizens. My gut says that number is low, really low. Anyone know where it came from?

For General Lee I would want to fly my “Confederate Battle Flag” but for Gun Appreciation Day I think I’ll fly my “COME AND TAKE IT” flag.

We could just use the standard Celtic “bloody shirt”.

Why? This seems pointless.

I just had a baby and I’m planning to buy a gun to give her for when she grows up. I know it sounds odd to buy now, but if they are not illegal by then... they will probablly be taxed at 300%!

The only thing that would work is a march on DC, unarmed, of course.

Going to your gun store won’t get any coverage.
