I made the trek from South Kansas City to Topeka, KS, this morning to attend the second 2nd Amendment Rally of the year that was held, today at all of our state capitols. The Topeka rally was not organized by any formal group –  it was loosely organized on Facebook, but still managed to attract 200 or so people on a chilly work day.

The KS Secretary of State, Kris Kobach was the keynote speaker at the rally, and he hung around, talking to people and posing for pictures when he was through. He made note of how the folks who feel guns are inherently bad (*cough* Piers Morgan *cough*)  don’t understand the many uses we have for guns: getting food,  hunting, pleasure, sporting purposes, self defense, and purposes that our founding fathers envisioned as perhaps the most important – the protection of ourselves, collectively – the protection of the free people against an oppressive government.

A black Second Amendment supporter named “Landmine Billy” asked the crowd, “how many racists are out there, today?” No hands went up until he explained what R.A.C.I.S.T was an acronym for  - “Rational And Constitutionally Inspired Sensible Thinker”.

Here is a montage of some of the other speakers – scheduled, and open mic:

UPDATE:

More than 100 tea party Republicans and constitutionalists braved sub zero wind chill today for a rally outside the State House in support of the Second Amendment. One of many protests held across the country, the Maine gathering attracted the attention of Gov. Paul LePage. A. J. Higgins has more.

Oregon:

There is no single sponsor for the rally, which is billed as a “patriot party” with multiple groups. A similar rally occurred Jan. 19, a Saturday; the Capitol was closed.“Let’s make it even bigger and better than the last one,” said a message on the website of the Oregon Firearms Federation.
