Day of Resistance - Show Your Support for the 2nd Amendment
by Bob Price on February 22, 2013 at 2:09 PM
"On January 16, 2013, President Barack Obama issued 23 executive actions against your 2nd amendment Constitutional right to bear arms. He did this without the consent of Congress which in itself, violates the foundation of the Constitution and the co-equal branches of government. In response to these unconstitutional actions by the President, on .223, February 23, 2013 the American people will stand together in defiance to protect the right that protects ALL of our rights, the 2nd Amendment! They will organize locally so that they may band together neighbor to neighbor and reassert their community's right to determine their own destiny!"

This is from the website, Day of Resistance, a group that is organizing Americans across the country to stand up against the unconstitutional actions of this President. In the Houston area, the Day of Resistance Rally is being organized by Dale Hulls and the Clear Lake Tea Party. You may remember, this is the group that organized last years successful "Saddle Up Texas Straw Poll" event which help launch the successful campaign of now U.S. Senator Ted Cruz.
“These Executive Actions have invoked an old fear and a new defiance in America with respect to the 2nd Amendment” said Huls. “You can’t buy ammo anywhere, it’s already bought. And the price of guns has gone through the roof, if you can get them. I am proud that the Clear Lake Tea Party is standing with the people to show our outrage and displeasure with this Administration.”
The rally will be held on the grounds of The Arms Room, a popular Houston area gun store and shooting range on Saturday from 3-5 p.m. The Arms Room also made the news this week when Comcast, who recently merged with NBC, cancelled their advertising contract because they are in the gun industry. This event is a great opportunity to send a message both to the President about the Second Amendment, and to Comcast for their discrimination against firearms related companies.
Huls said, "In conducting this event, safety is our top priority." He reminded all CHL holders to be sure to follow all Texas laws in accordance with both concealed carry and open carry of any long guns.
According to a Hulls, this location was chosen because of last week's resolution from the City of League City, Texas to "Protect and Defend the Constitutional Right to Keep and Bear Arms" which passed in a 7-1 vote of City Council. League City is the first city in the United States to pass such a resolution.
The resolution was authored by a strong Second Amendment supporter, Council Member Heidi Thiess. “The League City Council Members took an oath to protect, defend, and preserve the Constitution,” Thiess said. She also reminded council members prior to the vote that “League City has been known to have the most concealed handgun licenses (CHLs), per capita, of any city in Texas. We have a duty to lead on this issue.”
At this time, and subject to change, the following speakers will be addressing the group:
- Dale Huls/Master of Ceremonies
- Pastor Rob Purdy/Openning Prayer
- Geri Bently/US Pledge
- John Bentley/TX Pledge
- Bonnie Norman - US Representative Steve Stockman Staffer to read a brief message of support by the Congressman
- Dustin Stockman - TeaParty.net
- Matthew Boyle - Breitbart.com
- Dan Blackford - Retired Secret Service Agent (Clinton/Bush)
- Brandi Liss - The Arms Room
- Heidi Thiess - League City Council Member (1st in Nation city resolution protecting the 2nd Amendment)
- Kevin Jackson - the Blacksphere (Talk show personality and author)
- Others to be announced.
Several other rallies are planned across Texas and the nation. An entire list of rallies across the country can be found on the DayofResistance.com website.
