Light A Candle To Stop Violence

So the Brady Bunch are planning Candle-light vigils on January 8th to “Stop Gun Violence”. Now many have pointed out what a stupid and pointless gesture that is, also many are noting the dwindling numbers of people willing to come out in the cold with a candle for the sake of their lost cause.

I propose a display that will show we have the same goals, but our side is actually interested in results.

So on January 8th I ask everybody to post a picture of a lit candle and you carry gun. Because lit candles don’t do a whole lot but cast a meager amount of light…but a loaded gun in the hands of lawful citizens can do wonders to protect innocent lives from harm.

Also “Gun Violence” is a bogus and made-up term, so on January 8th I ask you all to light a candle to stop VIOLENCE, and show you have the means to do just that.

Do this across blogs, facebook, photo accounts, twitter, and any other means. I suspect with a little spreading of the word we can easily dwarf the anti-freedom effort, as well as make the world a safer place!

    They aren’t carry guns, but I do have a tactical sling for the shotgun. I’m getting it up here late, I did however post it just before midnight on twitter.

      I don’t know how it slipped my mind, but the pump .22 on the left was actually used to repel a home invasion. It’s amazing how just the appearance of a firearm, no matter how puny, immediately changes an aggressors mind.

    Dang! Brilliant!! But I missed the day! I totally did not see this post until it passed. You should set another date and give us all a chance to spread the word in Fb and blogland. In the mean time, I’ll go get a pic of my .357 long barrel, my shotgun, all my rifles and my Christmas candle. 🙂
