    Now, how to get 500 people to show up?
    As I said above, it requires a core group of people who are willing to meet (in person or by phone) create the plan and then get word out. Generally, those people create a flyer, post it to all social media sites, print thousands, distribute them at gun stores, ranges, shows, and so on.

    It is a good deal of work which is why I usually have little faith in the occasional person who says "lets have a rally" and who thinks they can just say the words and magically... it happens.

    Again, we need a core group of people (5-9) who will lead.

    I don't want to reveal too much publically, but his district office staff has his schedule.

They also understand the single financial backer of the anti-rights group and the true grass roots 2A support.

    Although we continue to hammer the bad guys and fence sitters, remember to call up the good guys in Harrisburg once in a while and thank them for doing a good job, they may not be hearing that enough in this political climate!

    Thanks Jhaydeno my rep cannon is out of ammo.

    I also wonder though, do we really hammer the BG's? What do we do? Make phone calls? Send emails? While lawmakers do consider those things, and while those things are important to do, they alone have limited effect because they do not put fear the hearts of the weak.

    Want to put fear in them? (fear is a very effective motivator.) Imagine if even half the people that attended the rally turned out at Ron Marsico's district office? He is chairman of the Judiciary committee. All firearms law goes to his committee. He brings it up, or not. If he does, and it passes his committee, it goes to a floor vote. So, he is the 'gatekeeper' in the House.

    Rally at his district office (outskirts of Harrisburg) on a day he will be there, with signs that say "no new firearms restrictions" and watch the media turn out. When they do tell them that if he brings new restrictions forward, the 2A community will make sure his political career is over.

    That is the kind of pressure/coordination we need to really be effective. But it takes a huge effort to get that number of people out and frankly, I don't see enough of us volunteers who are willing to do that kind of heavy lifting.

    I wonder if we could form a small group of activists from across the state who are willing to create and execute plans similar to the one above (team name 2A-Heavy) who would then be responsible for motivating their people locally.

    Anyone interested?
    Count me in.
    It's well past time to take things to the next level.
    Schedule a meeting, I will be there.
