So when I originally planned our Candlelight Vigil to Stop Violence I didn’t plan it for us. Granted I think we all had fun taking pictures and seeing how others showed their support, plus the SCOPE of the support. Still fun is just fun, my goals were a little more serious. As always I want to give the fence sitters something to think about, specifically which is more rational, lighting a candle, or having the resolve to defend yourself and others against violence, and wanting to extend that right to anybody who is willing and legal.
Also I wanted the anti-rights people to see us. They are constantly saying the gun industry is dying, and gun ownership, and the belief that the 2nd Amendment means the rights to protect yourself from harm and oppression from enemies foreign and domestic is an unpopular belief.
They are liar, and I want them to look at their own lies. Well they have.
Pro-gun activists found yesterday’s tributes to gun violence victims on 1 yr anniv. of #Tucson to be funny.
No, Ladd, I think lighting a candle is a pointless gesture if that’s the extent of your actions. I too lit a candle…but I also carry a gun, because as North Said: “Please defend yourself with something more than hot wax.”
Look at all the images, visit all the sites, Ladd, we’re the future, and you are the past.
**UPDATE** They Saw us in Seattle Too!
