I attended a gun rights rally on the steps of our capitol building in Frankfort, KY yesterday, and while I was there I tried to take plenty of photos, and of course some video. I found out about the event on Facebook, and about 260 people had RSVP'd on there, but we had quite a bit more than that actually show up. I was kind of wary at first, I was expecting somebody to try and cause a scene and get us all arrested, which is why I only carried what I always carry anyway, my Smith & Wesson Sigma pistol. My logic was that, if something happens and they start arresting people, I don't want my AR to be the weapon police get to confiscate. Once I got there though I found out that the state police were very polite and the senators' representatives were very polite and just about everybody who attended the rally was just a "good ol' boy" wanting to defend their right to keep and bear arms. I'd say a vast majority of the people there were veterans. I saw guys like me who were veterans of Iraq or Afghanistan, and I saw older gentlemen from Korea and Vietnam as well. People brought their children, we had a few speakers, and nobody got shot, it was a very interesting experience for me, because even though I know I'm a safe gun owner, the media would have you think that every time there's a gathering with firearms somebody gets shot, and I don't think I saw anybody here acting in an unsafe manner.
Anyway, I've uploaded some photos to an album on Google+ for everybody to see if you're interested.
