Unfortunately, as long as we remain in the same state as New York City, we're unlikely to make much headway. If the unSAFE Act isn't repealed, then maybe we should turn our efforts to making upstate our own state. Let NYC ruin itself.
Gorgeous, wonderful, thanks to you and all who went and did battle on this for all the rest of us.
Was there any obvious union presence? They were originally gonna bus goons in on a magic bus ride, Celerity found it (sorry, no linkee).
Thanks for the post & photos. I’m trying to remember how to (down)size images... preferably without distorting them! ... to post elsewhere.
Thanks. Very inspiring.
This station appears to be run by communists and is nothing but the propaganda arm of the Coumommunistas. The day of reckoning is soon a-comin.
"It was quite a day...this was not just a rally...it was a legislative day where these very people spent the morning demanding the legislature of NY repeal this unconscionable legislation they passed in the dark of night...on purpose, and against our wishes.
The good news is that even in the very blue state of NY there are a lot of democrats who stand against this. It is the insulated legislator who has now had their door knocked on for the day and the arrogant governor who had to see this rally all day long that need to wake up.
It is the third rally and I am willing to be generates more of them and bigger ones yet. " ~ ICE-FLYER
MSNBC will report the number as...
1) thousands of Constitutionally concerned American citizens
2) at least two dozen
3) a large unruly group of angry old white men
4) terrorists (undoubtedly armed)
5) some combination of the above
God bless every patriot who showed up today.
NY, you are leading the way.
You didn’t ask to be the leader , but you are, and you have performed magnificently.
The rest of us are buoyed by your example.
No union thugs came...SEIU backed down when they realized the backlash. I kid you not when I say this was big...even the most organized union paid for bussed in protest event has not been this big!
If you get your news from MSNBC, this event did not happen.
Hurrah!!! Courage! Stand firm! Wish I nearby so I could join in.
Looks like a good turnout. Thanks to those citizens of New York that took time to attend the rally.
Classic FReeper on the spot reporting... but you’re FR class of 1998, so we expect no less.
Great rally. But what’s with Cuomo giving an exemption to the film industry? Hollywood can have all the guns it wants in NY, but law-abiding citizens can’t.
Here's the link about that ill-fated attempt to bus libidiots in: Is this even legal ? (OBAMA to bus people in to protest NRA in Albany. This is a big deal)
Thanks again for all who made this happen. Those are some beautiful photos, and lots of great ideas for signs should we need them here!
Excellent! Wish I could have been there! (I did send an irate letter to my RINO senator — you should see the tripe he wrote back. He won’t like my reply back to him, either.)
This is most heartening. Thank you especially for posting the pictures.
Way to go, New Yorkers! Never give a inch.
My daughter who lives in a suburb of Albany called this afternoon to report that she saw a SUV with a giant “Impeach Cuomo” sign in the back window. She wondered what it was all about...
These tyrants in Albany badly need a wake-up call. What these slimy politicians have done and how they did it was worse than outrageous.
They should thank their blessings this large crowd came peacefully armed only with signs and not buckets of hot tar and feathers. Frankly, they deserve the latter rather than a peaceful demonstration.
You did not ask to be at the front of this battle, but you are. This looks like an excellent turnout! Wish I could have been there.
If New York State rid themselves of New York City it would be like finally having a bowel movement after being stopped up for a week. You would feel relief immediately.
You have the right idea.
Thank you all patriots who attended the rally...my organization was well represented with a full busload. My State Senator Michael Nozzolio voted against this unConsituttional infringement and will be speaking at the next meeting of our new grass roots org...United Gun Owners of New York State. More info on the group can be found here...
I will post the new website when it goes online.
Thank you for the pictures, it’s awesome to see Americans stand and fight. I hope they have another rally soon so I can get a seat on the bus this time!!
Looking good up there, NEVER SURRENDER!
Thank you for posting these great pictures!
These wonderful patriots make me proud to be an American.
I was there. Great day for the 2nd Amendment and New York.
DJ, did you see this thread?
BTW I’m sick with flu again. Very horrid, I feel as though I’m allergic to my own body!
I hope you and yours don’t get it.
Sacramento’s mayor Kevin Johnson gave a State of the City speech.....He led off saying that Sacramento needs to follow the lead of Chicago and New York.......it was sickening...There have been 3 Pro 2nd Amendment at the State Capitol in the past few weeks. None have been well attended........Time for We the People to flex our muscles.....
You New Yorkers ar ROCKIN’!
Those are SUPER pictures! Thanks!
Looks like a great rally! .............................................. FRegards
A BIG Texas thank you to all!!
A group you may be interested in. Thanks.
You forgot the pictures of the demonstrators:
defecating on Police cars
Fighting with the Police
Naked people dancing
The trash and garbage after the "rally".
Oh? It didin't happen? None of these things??
Ice, is there any video of this event? I could only find one and it was only 2 minutes long.
I beg your pardon, mgist. The previous post should have gone to ICE-FLYER.
Thanks! Great pics!!!
The small peoples paper says 12,000.
I think, by looking at the rally pictures, that there was more than a decent sized crowd! That was quite a huge rally for NY; GOOD GOING FOLKS!
Oh and P.S.: I loved the signs too; very creative!!
OUTSTANDING! Thanks for the pictures. Just more clarification that the msm was correct. Twenty or 30 pro-gun nutcases showed up. LOL! I think there’s trouble ahead.
“I hope Cuomo feels pressured enough to pay attention.”
No more so than Obama feels any “pressure” to pay attention to YOU.
“Too many of these arrogant pols deliberately isolate themselves so they can pretend not to know that they’re riding roughshod over the wishes of their constituents.”
They don’t care.
They don’t serve “their consituents” any more.
There are more important considerations...
