    Default Counter Protest West Chester March for Our Lives

    This is a peaceful counter protest to show Chester County and Pennsylvania that additional gun control will not solve school violence and that law-abiding citizens will not tolerate additional infringements on our rights.

    We will assemble on the corner diagonal to the courthouse (39.959701,-75.604209) at 11:30 am on 3/24. Their protest will start at noon, so this will give us a chance to get good parking which is generally in short supply in West Chester.

    Signs with a clean and clear message are strongly encouraged. We will not approach the protesters or engage in shouting matches. Let our signs and professional appearance speak for us.

    Open and concealed carry is welcomed as long as it is done in a respectful, non-threatening manner and is in compliance with the law. Long guns should be on slings and handguns should be holstered, preferably in a retention holster if open carried.

    We do not have a permit for this event, but that should not be an issue if you read this ACLU info, especially the part about not blocking people.

    Please get the word out. I hope I'm not the lone guy with a sign out there. I would hope for 50-100 people. Facebook shows their number around 350.

    Yes, please share this post or the Facebook link. I know it is late notice. I was looking for an event to join but there weren't any. So I guess it's my turn to do the organizing.

    There are several parking garages in that area. Suspect the demonstration will be at the older iconic court house. It's been the site for many demonstrations in the past.

    Until I turned the channel Fox 29 had two puppets on and they were all about sending a message to their representatives, they are 16 years old. Of course they didn't ask the kids to name their representatives or who they voted for or who they are going to vote for in the next election. WTF is going on in this world? It is beyond getting out of control, it's there and past it.
    Sorry but I'm all out of pity right now, please try later.

    Thank you to all who showed up. We had a small number of people but I think we were good representatives. We encountered several people who argued with us or were confrontational, but we also encountered several people who really appreciated that we were there to represent gun rights.

    I think it's the sound of the Gun Control Lobby on the edge of implosion.

    If we give that implosion a helping hand we will have some peace for a while.

    People who hunger to control others are never really gone. Enough them get discouraged for a time is all.
