For those of you have been following Community Matters, you will recall some of our livelier discussions have been gun-related, whether it was guns in national parks or incorrect signage (relating to guns) in our township parks . . . we have had people on both sides of the issues. Sometimes Community Matters attracts followers from outside the immediate area, so I guess should not have been surprised to receive the following email today from the president of the Pennsylvania Firearm Owners Association. I know my niavete on guns and their supporters is surprising to some, but who would know there is a Right to Keep & Bear Arms Rally held annually in Harrisburg?
Dear Community Matters,
There are just two weeks until we gather for the 5th Annual Right to Keep & Bear Arms Rally at the Capitol in Harrisburg. Have you made your plans to attend?
We need every gun owner we can find to turn out on April 27 at 10am for this important event that will demand action from lawmakers on vital self-defense reforms. Legislators have refused to bring Castle Doctrine up for a vote for years, and it is time we tell each and every one that we expect action.
If you join us, you’ll hear from top national and state speakers on the issues of today, and the role of the Second Amendment in 2010. By pre-registering, you will be eligible to win a Smith & Wesson rifle, Brownell’s range gear, or a $100 gift certificate to Cabela’s.
Visit www.2aRally.com for more information, and find links to ride share forums so you can organize with other PAFOA members in your area.
See you in Harrisburg!
Founder & President
Pennsylvania Firearm Owners Association
