When in Rome: Second Amendment Patriots are Organizing a Pro-Gun Rally in Rome, Georgia
After the successful gun rights rally in Richmond, Virginia, Second Amendment activists are setting up a rally in Rome, Georgia for this Saturday, January 25, 2020.
Organizers are still coordinating who will speak at the event.
The rally will take place at the American Legion Farm, 493 Jones Bend Road NE, at 1 p.m.
“We’re only one election away from being ruled by people who have the power to pass laws and don’t care about the Constitution,” organizer Chris Ashley declared. “I feel like all patriotic Americans should be willing to stand up and be preemptive about it instead of being reactive about it.”
Ashley hopes that Floyd County becomes a “sanctuary county” in case any kind of gun control legislation is enacted.
Ashley says that all three of the Floyd County Sheriff candidates — Republicans Tom Caldwell, Dave Roberson, and Ronnie Kilgo— are penned down as speakers.
Additionally, U.S. Congressional candidates Dr. John Cowan and Marjorie Green will be featured as speakers.
The president of Georgia Gun Owners, Inc., Patrick Parsons, is also expected to appear.
Ashley claims that members of the local legislative delegation in addition to city and county elected officials have been invited as speakers for the rally.
It’s safe to say the Richmond protest was a success.
Now other states are following suit by launching protests of their own.
The fight to protect the Second Amendment is now more heated than ever.
Gun grabbing-politicians want to hack away at gun ownership one regulation at a time, so this fight will definitely be draw out.
Protests are only the first step.
These must be followed up with concrete electoral and legislative actions that ensure the protection of the Second Amendment, while also repealing anti-gun legislation currently on the books.
Undoubtedly, gun rights will be one of the most controversial issues headed into the 2020 elections.
