Freedom loving Americans will be gathering at their state capitols across America today. Many Nebraskans will be joining them, in spite of the weather, the wind and the rain to show their support for the Second Amendment and to combat the calls for legislation which will only serve to infringe on the rights of the law abiding.
Unlike the recent gun control marches, these are truly grassroots events, put on without the help of Hollywood billionaires or America’s largest corporations. Delta Air Lines will not be flying supporters in for free. CNN & MSNBC will not be there fawning over them. There will not be paid workers handing out free lunch money.
Instead, this nationwide event relies on ordinary Americans who love freedom and are sick of being made the scapegoat for the government’s failure to protect its citizens. Honest men and women who are tired of being lied to by politicians who stand on stage at an NRA convention and proclaim their love for the Second Amendment only to later enact draconian gun control. Ordinary people who are simply attempting to engage in the dialogue and have their voices heard while being censored by the likes of YouTube, Facebook and Twitter.
If you can, join these Nebraskans today at 1 p.m. on the steps of the State Capitol. We cannot win this war alone. Every battle matters.
