It was sad at work today, I talked to about a dozen guys, gun owners, and only one had heard anything about this event. We need to get it out by somebody like Rush Limbaugh, Shaun Hannity, or the like. I don't think it's reaching enough people, and we're running short of time. I hope I'm wrong.

Is anybody else going to this rally from this site? I feel like I'm spinning my wheels here locally. I'm making calls, trying to find info, same answer from everybody, "I haven't heard anything about it". Any suggestions?

The Facebook page for Ohio's event that day lists 214 people as coming for sure. Unlike the State Farm commercial featuring the young lady talking about her boyftriend the French model, I don't believe everything on the internet. I'd be pleasantly surprised if more than a third of those 214 show up, and as few as possible are the smelly, hirsute, camo-clad militia doofuses.

I'm gonna stop by but if it's poorly attended it'll be a short stay.

There are few from Missouri that plan on attending (myself included). I only found out thanks to hickok45 and nutnfancy from good 'ol youtube. It would be nice if GOA or the NRA would advertise it on their front-page.

Here's one going in Idaho! And I've got 4 of my friends going too. So that's what we do. If all of us take more than just ourselves we can make an impressive showing.

We had a pretty good turn out in Nashville, some State Representatives and Senators showed up aswell as Hickok45.

A couple pics of the crowd, atleast 2000 people or so.

This makes me so happy knowing that there has been a good turnout in many states...hoping to hear good news about the turnout here in FL! I unfortunately had to choose between a final overall review/study session for the LEO state exam I take in 11 days, and attending this event. Wish the review would have been any other day :[

We had what I estimate at over 800 to a 1,000 people there today and if you think that's impressive, realize that it was about 5° too! But they opened up the Rotunda of the Capitol for us so it got a little better. All had a wonderful time for a very very important cause. Our 2nd Amendment! Later & Peace,

Some reports put Ohio's attendance at "hundreds." By my reckoning, we easily passed 1,000. At one point, we had a continuous streaming crowd walking around the block, covering all four sides.

The Columbus Dispatch has photos of the event, one of them featuring some guy named eye95, wearing his Dan Wesson 1911. *grins*
