Take Back This Nation, part 2
In part 1, I wrote about the Proclamation March and two anti-2nd Amendment bills.
The SHOUT heard ‘round the world
TAKE BACK the 2nd AMENDMENT
The Proclamation March is this Sunday (July 26th) at 2 p.m.
Location: Northern Kentucky/Greater Cincinnati
Gather at the Bulldogs Roadhouse Restaurant, 2015 Declaration Drive, Independence, KY, 41051
At the historically named location of Independence Kentucky on 2015 Declaration Drive (20-minutes from downtown Cincinnati ), a Constitution-inspired 2nd Amendment “Proclamation March” will occur on Sunday, 2 p.m. July 26th to commemorate the “Shot heard ‘round the world.” People from Ohio , Kentucky and even Tennessee will be attending.
On the rally’s website, http://www.takebackthisnation.org/ which contains more information about the event, organizer Brenda Wehrman writes: “Many know this story from their history books – but what we weren’t told is that this proclamation of liberty ‘heard ‘round the world’ started because the British were coming to confiscate their weapons.” This statement is followed by a quote from George Washington: “Firearms are second only to the Constitution in importance; they are the peoples' liberty's teeth” contrasted by a rather provocative quote from Vladimir Lenin: “One man with a gun can control 100 without one.”
In an interview, Brenda Wehrman says, “Citizens all across America are clearly concerned that their rights may be in jeopardy because every gun store owner I talk to tells me that they can’t seem to keep enough ammunition in stock.” This is depicted in a short movie she directed to highlight the upcoming “Proclamation March.” The movie can be seen at the website and has a cast of local volunteer actors. The main character, Ian Grumbine, goes back in time to the evening of April 18th when he finds he is Paul Revere visited by a founding father who spurs him to take his Midnight ride to warn the colonists of the advancing British army.
Speakers from both sides of the aisle will address the rally including Dr. Rand Paul who is running for the Senate in Kentucky and Gatewood Galbraith , Kentucky Gubernatorial candidate. Attendees can arrive early to mix and mingle and enjoy food and beverages at discounted prices available by a primary sponsor and host of the event: the Bulldogs Roadhouse. The restaurant is located on Declaration Drive in Independence Kentucky . All are welcome. There is no cover charge.
