“Guns Save Lives” Day – an event sponsored by the Second Amendment Foundation – will be held this coming Sunday, December 15th.
There is some confusion that folks think it’s “Guns Save Life” that is sponsoring this event.
Nope, it’s not us. However, Guns Save Life does support the concepts behind “Guns Save Lives” Day. We are not participating in any “events” on the 15th.
And we certainly aren’t participating in any events on the 14th as that would be dancing in the blood of the children massacred by a crazed, asocial mad-man obsessed with violent video games.
GROUPS JOINTLY SPONSOR ‘GUNS SAVE LIVES DAY’ ON BILL OF RIGHTS DAY
BELLEVUE, WA (2nd Amendment Foundation)– The Second Amendment Foundation, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms and DefendGunRights.com announced today they will join together with other groups to sponsor Guns Save Lives Day on Dec. 15, the day after the anniversary of the tragic Newtown, Conn., shootings “because crazy people, criminals and gun control extremists prefer unarmed victims.”
“We are proclaiming Sunday, Dec. 15 as Guns Save Lives Day,” said Alan Gottlieb, president of the Second Amendment Foundation and chairman of the Citizens Committee. “In the coming weeks, you can go to GunsSaveLivesDay.com and get updates on this open source national project that all freedom loving organizations are invited to be a part of.”
In addition, GunsSaveLivesDay.com has an on-line petition for individuals to sign in support of the fundamental right to own a firearm for self-defense. There will be events and activities in all 50 states to counter the anticipated push by the gun prohibition lobby to exploit the anniversary of the Newtown tragedy to push their political agenda.
Guns Save Lives Day was initially planned for December 14th, the day the gun prohibition lobby is planning to exploit the Newtown tragedy to further their anti-firearms civil rights political agenda. “In moving the event back one day to Bill of Rights Day we challenge the gun prohibition lobby to drop their plans to further continue their exploitation and politicization of this horrific tragedy,” Gottlieb added.
