This is awesome. I wish I could be a part of this, but it's SHTF at work right now and there's no way to get out of it to head down to LA.

I'll see what I can do. Maybe I'm coming down with a headache...in my stomach.

Sorry to hear about that. So far there are only two of us from around here that are heading down, I kinda thought more people would be available...know anyone else that'd want to go? We already have a driver/vehicle, plenty of room for more people to jump in.

Folks, local media have expressed the desire to cover our event.

Look sharp!

And be PROUD! What y'all have done in these few days is nothing short of amazing. I'm truly humbled by the community we have, here.

Calguns Rocks.

I forwarded folks from a couple forums I'm on to this thread. Good luck. I'm working or I'd be there. I feel like we are fighting for so much more than the 2A. Make us proud.

Between lost work, travel expenses, and lodging - this trip will cost me and my wife about $900.

It's a small price to pay. . .

What happens tomorrow will send a clear message that we stand for:

1) Truth
2) The legitimate political process (not Bloomberg's attempt to "hack politics" on this issue).

It's also one of the FIRST legitimate California gun rights assemblies or rallies (we don't "protest"). . .

I have already sent a PM to Andrew Mendez and I will be there. I will be showing up early to help 'reserve' parking for the Truth Mobile, look for the Blue FJ Cruizer. If need be you can store your guns in the rear of the vehicle, I will bring a few extra pistol bags and locks for those who need them. I will also bring an Ice Chest with ice for those who want keep a drink cool or grab a free water.

I didn't see this mentioned before but is anyone bringing any of the CalGuns.net schwag for sale at the event? What about the CGF? What about donations at the Event?

No problem - I totally understand - I just wanted to remind fence sitters how important this is. You aren't a fence sitter, I should not have quoted your post.

Sorry about that!!!
