    I also remembered why I moved away from Central/Lower Bucks. The traffic out there is ridiculous.

    I just found this thread. Tons of info to absorb. I am lucky I work on the weekend and am off during the weekday. I can make both days.
    Is there a central meeting place for each day?
    I have never been to a rally, and have not visited Harrisburg. Would be great to meet up and hang with a group of like minded 2A supporters!

    I'll search through the thread for answers to some questions I have.
    A. Such as appropriate clothing to wear?
    B. Can I get a sign to carry or do I need to make one?
    - what should it say?
    C. Is it recommended to CCW?

    Thanks to the OP for getting the word out, I greatly appreciate it as a gun owner.

    Thank you for standing with us for the 2A in PA.

    Meeting place is the Capitol fountain which is at the main rear entrance to the Capitol building.

    Wear whatever makes you comfortable, 2A clothes (t-shirts) are good but not required, Gadsden Flag Stickers will be handed out for all 2A people to wear.

    You can make a sign or borrow one from Justin who will bring extra signs to hand out.
    Signs can say anything you want them to say, when in doubt, a big "2A" is all you need to deliver the message to the Legislature.

    Concealed or open carry (or no carry) is up to you, whatever you prefer, pistols are checked in with the Capitol police if going inside to attend the hearings.
    If planning to attend the 2A hearings please arrive 2 hours early to get a seat before we are crowded out by the anti 2A Bloomberg drones.

    You don't need to say anything, just being there and standing for the 2A is enough, we have 2A professionals testifying for us at the hearings.
    If asked, all you need to say is you are pro 2A and you vote.

    I am going to post a review with all the relative information in one place, should be posted here within the hour.

    Thank you again for standing with us for the 2A, and I will see you there.

    If you bring a rifle or long firearm other than an actual handgun, you get to stay outside.
    Some/most parking takes credit cards. pretty much all parking is on decks, heights are listed on some website, google harrisburg parking. iirc the shortest was like 6'8"
    It is a city with stupid one way tight city streets.
    Capitol police are pretty cool. if they weren't hanging around to chat with us in spring, they were just going about their jobs paying us no mind.

    (Text from previous posts)

    If you want to stop Pennsylvania from adopting New Jersey anti gun laws please attend these Capitol hearings on Sept 24-25, 2019.
    Get the word out, take a day off if needed, and please attend these anti gun hearings.

    On Sept 24-25, 2019, there will be a "maximum effort" from Bloomberg and the other gun control groups to have a HUGE presence at the Capitol.
    Bloomberg wants to use the Sept 24-25, 2019 hearings to pressure our PA legislators to pass Red Flag Laws, Universal Gun Registration, and Magazine Bans.

    Our job is to fill the Capitol Building in Harrisburg beyond capacity for 2 days on Sept 24-25, 2019.
    We need to fill the hearing room and Capitol with enough 2A people to drown out the Bloomberg gun control crowd being bused in to pressure our legislators.

    Bloomberg buses are going to arrive early to try to pack the hearing room with wall to wall gun control people on both days.
    2A people are asked to please arrive at least 2 hours early to get a seat in the hearing room before the Bloomberg people crowd us out.

    All the 2A people that plan to remain outside, please use the Capitol rear entrance fountain as our 2A rally point.
    We want a massive 2A presence to overflow around the Capitol building fountain, there is no activity planned at the Capitol front steps or in the Rotunda.
    Any 2A people that try to attend the hearings but are turned away when the room is full, please hang out inside the Capitol or with the 2A people outside at the fountain.

    You can show up dressed however you are most comfortable, hang out inside or outside however you prefer, just please stand with us for the 2A and be there.
    Bring t-shirts, signs, flags, tables/chairs (outside), food/drink (outside), bring whatever you want to make yourself comfortable at the Capitol Sept 24-25, 2019.

    There are no speeches planned outside, we just want obviously recognizable 2A people to hang out inside and outside and stand for the 2A.
    Eat, drink, relax, and enjoy a 2 day 2A sit-in right in the Legislature's lap, and right in the middle of the business end entrance of the Capitol building.

    PAFOA people will be handing out Yellow Gadsden Flag Stickers to help make us all recognizable as 2A supporters.
    The idea is that if you are wearing 2A clothes or our 2A sticker, you will help add to our 2A presence and pressure even if not in the hearing itself.

    This entire fiasco is meant to be a show trial to pressure our PA legislators to immediately pass Red Flag Laws, Universal Gun Registration, and Magazine Capacity Bans.
    We need to overwhelm our Capitol with 2A people for 2 days and shut this thing down hard enough to rattle the Legislature.

    Help us turn this Bloomberg manufactured gun control media circus into a massive demonstration of support for the Second Amendment in Pennsylvania.
    Please stand with us at the Capitol on Sept 24-25, 2019 to protect our Second Amendment rights in Pennsylvania.

    I will see you there.

    People can do anything they think will help make the 2A message noticeable to the Legislature.
    We settled on the yellow Gadsden stickers since they are large and unmistakably 2A, and they are wearable on any piece of clothing.
    If people want to add buttons or other stuff that's great.

    If you're asking me my personal opinion, I think putting the cash towards another 100 Gadsden stickers may be better spent.
    But you are more than welcome to add buttons or anything else you think may help spread the 2A message.

    Working on finishing up T-shirts. My friend with the T shirt company was on vacation but is on it and will be wrapped up soon. Have 23 "I'll take one or two" so far. Anyone else let me know. I will put a proof up when ready.
    Thanks!
