Default CRPA event at the USS Iowa

Anyone else go? Was a nice enough event.

Kestryl was pointed out in the dark,
So I know his silhouette.

Hope fund raising was good.
Location on shipboard was interesting.

Photo from last night in my avitar.

I'm shocked. I had been receiving e-mails from CRPA promoting this event nearly every week since January. Make sure you join CRPA, or at the very least, get on the email list.

Was the battle plan for restoring the 2A in California discussed at the event?

Battle plan seems to be get involved now, getting one other person to vote in CA. Local level grass roots can get change.

Come out of the closet or errr out of your firing lane as the gays did to get their rights, said one...

Speaking up for rights could get you beat up as a gay, the same could get you fired or beat up, if for Trump.

Didn't say it would be easy.

Re no guns, it wasn't that kind of event; just folks 'shooting their mouths off' talking... and the 5" gun punctuated the event. Had armed security, if that counts and lots of veterans.

Were tables Full of rifles and gun related things being raffled.
Being crowd-phobic, I hung out on the 'right side' of the ship, in the back with a Vietnam medic vet and an f-18 pilot.
They were interesting Folks. If I wanted better co ordination on an event like this, I would have takes the cruise ship at the far end of the parking lot. As it was, I went to defend our firearms rights on a semi retired battleship.

Note the 'semi' with regards the battleship, it may not yet be finished...More can happen as with us and our fight.

As mentioned, I got plenty of notices for this ahead of time, and it sounded cool, but I couldn't make it down there. Gotta join CRPA to get these notices, and if you are a member but not receiving them, could be a mailing list subscription preference issue?

Glad some made it. Understandable about protecting identities and limiting pictures, but are there more? The CRPA site doesn't look to have added anything about how the event went yet.

I blame myself. CRPA e-mails go to my spam file and I rarely open that file.

So what did your $70.00 ticket get you? I got the notices. One almost every day by email for the last few months.
I saw the lowest priced ticket was $70.00. I am wondering, who spoke? Did you get door prizes? What food did you get to eat? It was minimum of $70.00 per ticket. That should get some good grub.
I was already inked in on the calander and couldn't go, but I am wondering what the ticket brought to you.
Did you get a t-shirt?

We sponsored a table. Had a great time with family and supported a good cause and won some auction items.

Ohh and we got to hear them fire off the big guns.

Was a good time.
