Thanks to the Virginia Citizen’s Defense League for the tip!

I have a few ideas for signs, too:

Article I, Section10 of the Constitution forbids alliances with foreign cities?  So why is NYC a C40 city and member of ICLEI!

It’s large sugary drinks today and guns tomorrow!

Left-wing authoritarianism is JUST AS BAD as right-wing authoritarianism!

I know:  Too long a slogan.  But people have time at a rally to read ’em!


Here’s the report:

VCDL is planning a protest at the first Virginia stop for the Bloomberg gun-control tour. 
The event is scheduled for 9:30 AM at an empty lot in Blacksburg. 

The address is: 200 Clay St. SE Blacksburg, VA 

The event currently has no set ending time and I plan on hanging around as long as the antis are there. 
I expect it will last several hours. 
I will be bringing some signs for people to carry, but feel free to bring your own if you wish. 
Here's some ideas for wording if you wish to "roll your own": 

Guns Save Lives N0 more gun control! 
Universal background checks = gun registration 
Gun control kills! 
Keep your hands off my liberty 
Gun control failure: Chicago 
(I have some other ideas stated above!)

The tour has been trying to recruit people at Virginia Tech so they can have a friendly audience for their message. 
We fully expect the press will be at this event. 
We need a good turnout so we can make sure our messages gets heard loud and clear! 
If you can only come for a little while, that is OK. 
So you don't get too thirsty, you might want to bring a large sugary drink to enjoy. ;-) 
You can park in the nearby Kent Square parking garage. 
I will be in contact with the police to let them know that we plan on protesting the event.

    That is next to the police station. It is a grassy area with a gazebo. There is limited parking, but there is a parking garage a block away on Draper Road – Kent Square Parking Garage.

    If anyone has questions about the area, let me know. Some of us gun owners are a weeee bit mad they are coming and choosing our beautiful town for their protest.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
